Remember how we chatted about using ChatGPT to make your art descriptions pop? Today, let's crack a puzzle that's been bugging some of you. Ready?
Here's the scenario: You've created an amazing piece of art, and you're itching to share it. Then, out of the blue, you're hit with an error message: "As an AI, I am unable to access the internet in real-time or click links." What to do?
Don't worry, we've got a fun fix for you. This message might seem tricky, but think of it as a challenge. You see, ChatGPT's memory of images only goes up until 2021. But we can still make it work for us.
Instead of giving ChatGPT a plain old URL link, let's take it on a journey through your artwork. Tell it about your masterpiece, including things like color, shape, how everything's arranged, the mood, the art style, what's in the painting, and any cool details. ChatGPT also likes it when you mention things from art history or the thoughts behind the piece.
