Using AI-Generated Images Effectively in Your Articles

Have you ever struggled to find the perfect images for your articles? I feel your pain; I’ve faced the same struggle. That’s why Agility Writer introduces AI-generated images to help you.

But, before you start smashing the button to generate images for all your articles, we need to set the right expectation for using AI images, their advantages, and their limitations (this is important).

Stay with me on how you can seamlessly integrate these images into your articles.

So let’s jump in!

Advantages of AI-Generated Images

The main advantages of opting for these futuristic images include:
  • They are cost-effective: Opting for AI-generated images can significantly cut down your expenses on professional photographers or expensive stock photos.
  • Quick content creation: Need an image for your article immediately? No problem. With AI, you can generate visually appealing images in no time.
  • Unique-looking content: Using AI-generated images ensures the uniqueness of your visuals. As these images are machine-generated, there’s a lesser chance of someone else having the same image as yours.

The Limitation of AI-Generated Images

AI-generated images have their limitations, particularly when generating human images with complex movement and action, such as sports photos. Additionally, AI may struggle to create realistic images of landmarks, complex machines, or home appliances.

Latest Update: Our new premium AI images will significantly reduce these limitations to generate very decent images.

Set the Right Expectations on AI-Generated Images

When using AI-generated images, it’s essential to set realistic expectations.

You won’t get 100% perfect AI-generated images in all headings

In our testing, we have found that AI-generated images are not always perfect. On average, about 5-8 out of 10 images generated by AI are good enough to publish. So while AI can save you time and money in creating visuals for your articles, it’s important to review and choose the best images before including them in your content.

Not all niches are suitable for using AI images

In particular niches, such as sports and landmark scenes, the use of AI-generated images may not be as successful due to the limitations of the technology. These niches often require complex movements and actions that are difficult for AI to replicate accurately.

For example, capturing a dynamic sports moment or showcasing an accurate landmark may be challenging for AI-generated images.

Customize Your AI Images

The settings of our AI Image Generator allow you to customize the images according to your needs.

Note: Extra AI images are temporary disabled in Bulk Mode

No. of AI Images

You have the flexibility to choose the number of images for your article. We offer free images from 1 to 5 images depending on the mode. E.g. Optimize mode will get 5 images, and 1 click mode get 1 image.

We also design the system to smartly generate images for H2 heading first in case the number of AI images is insufficient to cover all headings.

Image Style

You can choose different image styles. Photo, Cinematic, and Analog  Film are the most common styles to get realistic images. You can also test on other styles, including 3D Models, Anime, Comic Books, Digital Art, and Fantasy.

Images Size

You can choose from Landscape 16:9 ratio, Landscape 3:2, or square images.

Image Alt Tag

The image alt tags provide a text description of the image for accessibility purposes and search engine optimization.

In our AI Image Generator, you can choose whether you want to include alt tags. You can select from None, Short, or Long Alt Tag.

Image Color

The image style settings of our AI Image Generator offer various options to enhance and customize your images.

Default

The default setting for our AI image generator is perfect for general usage. It provides a balanced and natural look to your images, making them suitable for various articles and content.

Real-life

I personally find the “Real-life” setting on our AI Image Generator quite interesting. It gives images a more subdued and natural look by reducing the vibrancy of colors and making them darker.

Natural

The “Natural” image style setting in our AI Image Generator is perfect for those looking for a more subdued and realistic look to their images. This setting makes the colors less vibrant and colorful, giving the photos a more natural appearance.

Vibrant

This option adds a pop of color and liveliness to the images. By enhancing the colors, these vibrant images really catch the reader’s eye and make your articles visually appealing.

Colorful

This option enhances the vibrancy and saturation of the photo, making it more eye-catching and visually appealing. It’s a great choice for articles that need a burst of energy or want to capture attention with bold visuals.

Soften

Softening an image is a great way to reduce the sharpness and make it appear more subtle and gentle. This setting in our AI Image Generator allows you to achieve a softer look by minimizing your photo’s sharp edges and details.

Gold

It adds a beautiful touch to the images by incorporating more gold color. This setting enhances the warmth and richness of the image, making it stand out even more.

No. of Photo with people

You have the flexibility to determine how many photos with people you want in your articles by using our AI image generator. Whether you prefer fewer or more photos with people or even no people at all, it’s entirely up to you. AI can handle photos without people very well.

Ethnicity

You can choose the ethnicity of the people in your generated images. You can either set it to Auto or select from options such as Black, Caucasian, East Asian, South Asian, or Hispanic.

This allows you to tailor the images to match your target audience or reflect diversity in your content.

Disclaimer: AI sometimes fails to deliver the right ethnicity and is different from your selection.

Same Person

Our AI image generator allows you to use the same person in all images throughout your article for added consistency and cohesion. This feature ensures that the images portray a unified theme or storyline, making them more visually appealing and engaging for readers.

But there is a possibility you get very similar images depending on the outline and content. And if the first image gets bad quality, the rest of the images might have an identical issue. Use it only when necessary. Do not use this with “Exclude people” in “No. Photo with People”.
