Jasper Art: AI Image Generator for Bloggers (Review)

Imagine having your own toolbox where you can create almost any kind of image you want.

We have been able to generate text with the help of AI for quite some time now. It’s now time to bring images into the mix, and it’s actually pretty amazing what you can do.

Having AI help you generate images is truly the future for many marketing people and bloggers around the planet.

Jasper Art is an AI tool that you feed with text in order to create an image. This gives you the possibility to create unique images that you can use in blog posts, marketing, books, and so much more.

The future is here, and it’s only a matter of time before we start seeing AI in every industry. From writing to photography – everything will be touched by this revolutionary technology!

I have tested this quite extensively and in this Jasper Art review, I will walk you through everything you need to know.

What is Jasper Art?

Jasper Art is an AI program that takes text input and turns it into beautiful pictures. Artists, bloggers, and designers can use Jasper to create all kinds of visuals, from simple designs to intricate works of art. You don’t need any special skills or knowledge to use Jasper – it’s easy to use for everyone!

“One of the former barriers to having AI generate believable images was the need for enormous datasets for training. With today’s significant computing power and the incredible amount of data we now collect, AI has breached that barrier.”

Bernard Marr

Blogging and marketing professionals can use Jasper Art to create unique, eye-catching images for their blog posts and social media profiles.

With Jasper Art, you can easily create visuals that will stand out from the crowd and catch people’s attention. You can also use Jasper Art to create designs for your website or marketing materials.

How does Jasper Art really work?

As with any image generation AI, there are some special commands that works better than other depending on what you are after, but in general, it understand your prompts really well.

All you have to do is to feed it with as much relevant context as possible about the image you want to have created.

Three different images being completely made with Jasper Art.

The images above where all created in Freeform mode (but Basic will work out just as well), with quite few prompts. Jasper Art is pretty smart when it creates the images, and the underlying engine (DALL-E 2) has been through some proper training.

One of the drawbacks is that all images created with Jasper Art is in 1:1 ratio (512 x 512 pixels), but I expect this to change soon. Open AI, the company behind DALLE-E 2 has just introduced outpainting, which I believe will be amazing when incorporated in Jasper Art.

Basic Options

In Basic Mode, you get a lot of help with creating the prompt. Start by putting the object(s) you want created in the Image Description. The more detailed you are, the better the end result.

Under Style, you get to choose from 10+ different styles, such as:

  • 3D render
  • Abstract
  • Anime
  • Art deco
  • Cartoon
  • Line art
  • Pixel art
  • Retro

Medium is where you define on what the image should be portrayed upon, such as:

  • Acrylics
  • Canvas
  • Classic Oil
  • Glass
  • Ink
  • Spray paint

The you get to chose what Artist or Style to mimic, such as:

  • Andy Warhol
  • Ansel Adams (I personally love his photographic style)
  • Pablo Picasso
  • Pixar
  • South Park
  • Van Gogh

There is also this huge spreadsheet of different artists and styles you can use for inspiration. Always be a bit careful if you are mimicing living artists and you are about to use these images commercially in some aspect.

I have found that mixing a few artists in Freeform works pretty well, more in that in the next section.

Next up, the Mood:

  • Aggressive
  • Boring
  • Calm
  • Colorful
  • Energetic
  • Joyful
  • Lifeless
  • Romantic
  • And many, many more…

Finally you’ll select a more generic Keyword, such as:

  • Ambient light
  • Black & White
  • Close-up
  • Full face portrait
  • High resolution
  • Realistic

Freeform (Advanced) Options

When you have outgrown the Basic settings and want some more creative freedom, the Freeform mode is at your disposal.

There’s nothing at all that differs between the quality of the images being generated between the two modes, it’s just that in Freeform mode you don’t have any dropdown menus, only a text field.

I love metal music and going to rock concerts, and the image that Jasper Art created based on a relatively short freeform prompt is pretty amazing.

Making use of the above mentioned spreadsheet that has over 700+ different artists (with examples) is going to help you out a lot.

Cthulhu made with Jasper Art.

I got the inspiration to this from the vivid and very helpful Jasper Community on Facebook. As you can see, I have used several different artist styles in combination in order to render an image of Lovecraft’s monster Cthulhu.

All of the photos in the featured image in this article (shown on top) have been created in Freeform mode. The AI still produces some wonky eyes and other facial features so I’ve also taken them through a very handy AI inside Photoshop to make them look really good.

Who is Jasper Art for?

Anyone that are in need of unique images is a suitable user. It is still very cheap (being in beta) and offers unlimited creations for only $20/month.

It is really open for anyone to use pending a subscription, and since it’s so easy to use even kids can use it to make their wildest creations come true.

I use the traditional Jasper AI (text) almost as a Virtual Assistant, constantly giving me new ideas on how to approach things. I can see the same thing for for Jasper Art, e.g. photographers looking for inspiration on how to take that next magical photo.

If you fit into any of these categories, I’m sure you will find good use for Jasper Art:

  • Bloggers
  • Digital Marketing Professionals
  • Designers (imagine when we can get vector art)
  • Students
  • Teachers
  • Artists
  • E-commerce stores
  • Or just about anyone in need of unique images

I expect the team behind Jasper AI to give us even better images (and quality) out of the box quite soon. This is a game changer.

What are some real-life scenarios for Jasper Art?

I write a lot of content, for many different niches. For me it’s an amazing way to create unique images both as filler content, but also to showcase things.

The days of wasting hours looking for blog post images are over! Now, with just one click you can generate what your heart desires.

The images created with AI is currently released under a Creative Commons license so you are free to use them as you please. Just make sure to not violate any copyrights or pretend to have images from artists that they haven’t created. You get the point, use your common sense here.

I can see tons of different scenarios where these images can be used:

  • As images in books or as book covers
  • Use them as marketing material in ads for your company
  • Swap them for the stock photos you (and everyone else) have on your website
  • Use them for educational purposes (as long as they are true)
  • Use them in e-mails to grab attention
  • Create really unique backdrops for your Zoom meetings
  • Build a social following on Instagram with AI Art
  • Spend countless of hours just clicking through and see what you get (that would be me!)

Children’s educational content creator hit jackpot

One of many people that found good use for Jasper Art is Lisa. She’s running Movin’ Monkeys, a virtual Preschool System, with segments available on Youtube.

She films herself on a green screen and puts herself on various backgrounds depending on what theme they are studying. She had a problem finding both a variety of stock images, but also images where she would fit entirely in the foreground.

Lisa Hyde's gingerbread houses created with Jasper Art.

With some help from the community she was able to tweak the prompts to give her what she wanted, by starting to experiment with slight variations of the prompt below.

"An enchanted, adorable-looking, symmetrical, gingerbread house made out of candy in the forest. The house is in the distance with lots of grass in front yard, insanely detailed, colorful, high resolution, whimsical, 8k, unreal engine, POV low angle from the front grass"

After a bit more tweaking and shooting in front of the green screen, she was able to get exactly what she wanted.

It was hard to find a decent picture she could use online of a (pirate) ship on the shore, with enough space for her to fit into as well. But with the help of Jasper Art it was doable rather quickly.

When I talked to Lisa she mentioned this being a game changer for her business.

Best of luck to you going forward, Lisa!

The positives with Jasper Art

Jasper Art is still in beta and far from perfect, but I’m still impressed with what it can help you create while being in its infancy.

Quick and easy image generation

I’m a hobby photographer and spend a lot of time behind the camera. When I am to use an image in any of my blog posts (for myself or for any client) I have pretty high standards for it.

A lot of my SEO clients don’t have the budget for unique photographs and depend on stock photography. The problem with this is that you’re far from alone in using these images.

With Jasper Art you are able to create pretty amazing images out of the box, and many of them are by all means usable.

It’s really quick and easy to get the images you need. But they are far from perfect all the time. That’s why it is so good that you have no limits on how many images you generate while being in beta.

It’s really quick

I’ve generated images with other AI tools as well, and while they are good too, they tend to take more time to generate. I noticed rather quick that Jasper Art is quick when it comes to generate images.

You get 4 generated images in a batch in usually no more than 5-10 seconds.

Affordable pricing (while in beta)

The team behind Jasper is offering Jaspert Art for only $20/month while in beta. I’m used to the credits they use for text, but for Art they are offering unlimited image generations which is really generous.

Since a lot of images being generated can be quite odd looking before you get the hang of it, having hte possibility to generate as many images you want is amazing!

I think we can assume that it will not stay at this low price for long, so if you want to give Jasper Art a test, now is the time!

No special skills needed

With Jasper Art, you don’t need any special skills because the AI will automatically create unique and stunning images for you. This means that you can relax and let the software do all the hard work, and you’ll still end up with amazing results.

Jasper Art Cons

Few things are perfect, and there is always room for improvement. Most of these cons are not only applicable to Jasper, but to most/all AI image generators.

Randomness

The images produced all have a bit of randomness to them. If you want something really, really specific it can be hard to get the finer details right. There is also the downside of not being able to get more images with the subject (human or medieval castle) in different views and/or locations.

Human anatomy

The AI is really not good at creating people with correct anatomy all the times. And very rarely when it comes to hands and fingers.

If you need a lot of pictures where the subject is going to hold things or just have hands and fingers showing a lot, you might save time by hiring an actual photographer for now. But I expect this to evolve and change in the coming year(s).

Hands is really the biggest drawback.

You can’t copyright AI art

Petapixel wrote about the US Copyright Office new decision about the request to copyright an artwork generated by AI. It got rejected, and you can read up about it here.

Conclusion

Is Jasper Art worth $20 / month? Absolutely!

Rating: 4.5/5

While there are some oddities here and there, it’s really something we can live with considering Jasper Art still being in beta. I am sure that a relatively large chunk of the 100+ amazing people at Jasper are working around the clock to improve this even further.

There are so many different APIs they can connect this to in order to automatically enhance the images further. Just imagine if we get something like the Photo Restoration neural filter (which is also an AI) in Photoshop integrated in Jasper Art. I’ve ran most of my portraits created with Jasper through that AI too.

There’s always room for improvement, and I am so looking forward to what comes next in Jasper Art.
