The DALL-E, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion artificial intelligence modules all make it simple to create an image in response to a given trigger. But it’s hard to make prompts from images, like figuring out how the image was made and making a prompt from that.

The internet is full of amazing images, but often we have no idea which AI prompt was used to create them.

No need to worry though; we’ve got you covered.

In this article, we’ll explain how to quickly and easily create a prompt using any image, whether it was made by an Ai or not. You will learn a simple reverse prompt lookup technique using a reverse image prompt generator that will make your work a lot easier.

So let’s get right into our guide.

How To Generate Image-To-Text Prompt From Any Given Image Online?

Remember: Remember that the image does not contain any meta data or other stored data that would allow it to reveal the specific prompts that were utilised. However, it will explain how the model perceives the image and how to replicate it.

The method we will look at is called “reverse prompt lookup.” It works by looking at the uploaded image and guessing the medium and style of art. It then gives a list of possible prompts that could have been used to make the image.

Steps To Create Text Prompt From Any Given Image Using Reverse Prompt Lookup:

Access the Clip Interrogator Colab Notebook Using Your Google Account

Log in to your Google account and open the CLIP Interrogator Colab notebook created by pharmapsychotic. This notebook is designed to run on Google Colab, which eliminates the need for local storage and installation.

Run the Cells in The Notebook

Once you have opened the notebook, run the “Check GPU” cell and wait for the green tick.
Then, run the “Setup” the “Setup” cell

Input Your Image For Which You Want The Prompt

Run the “Interrogate” cell and replace the existing link with the link of the image you want to reverse lookup or upload it by clicking the “Upload” button. Make sure to use an online link, not a local device path.

BOOM! Your Image Is Ready

Within seconds, the result will be displayed in a table format at the end of the Colab notebook page. Use the “magic stick” to interact and expand the result table.

The table will include details such as medium, artist, trending, movement, and flavors of the image.

At the end, it will also provide a prompt that is similar to the image uploaded.

Alternatively, you can use CLIP Interrogator by Hugging Face for more easy prompts generations.
