Generate images for Tshirts With AI
Playground AI is one of the best sites to generate your images. You can generate up to 1000 images per day with the Free plan, which is more than sufficient for you to try out different prompts to get the image you are after. Though the Pro plans has advanced options, the Free plan is good enough for our case.
Go to Playground.com and on the Home/main page, you can see images that have been generated by others.
Click on signup, continue with Google and accept the permission to complete the signup process. Once done, log in and click on Create button on the top right corner.
On the create page you have three columns. On the left, you have Filter, Prompt, Exclude from Image and Image to Image. On the right, you have Model, Image Dimensions, Prompt Guidance, Quality & Details, Number of Images and Private Session.
On the left column, under the Filter menu, you can choose the style of your image. Choose none for now and under Prompt, describe the image you want.

If you don’t know what prompts to add, you can go back to the home page and scroll through the images and click on it and copy the prompts you like. If you don’t want to see certain things on your image, you can type those prompts under “Exclude from Image”.
If you have an image of the Dog, you can upload that under the “Image to Image” option and use the image length slider to set how much resemblance your generated image should be with the one you uploaded.
On the right column, under Model, you can try out all the models to get the type of image you want. Choose the Dimension from the list, if you have a Pro subscription you will get higher dimensions to choose from.
You can increase or decrease the “Prompt guidance and Quality & Details” to get a balanced image. As stated there If you increase the Prompt Guidance, the generated image will be closer to your liking but things might be all over the place, For Example: A dog might have 6 legs.
Select how many images you want to generate at a time, if you set it as 4, you will get 4 images with different criteria.
If you don’t want your generated images to be public, you can change the option under “Private Session”. So any image you generate in that session will only be available for you.
Now, click on Generate button and wait a few seconds for the images to be generated.
If you don’t like any of the images, you can keep modifying the prompts until you are happy with the images. You can also create variations of any particular image. Move your mouse over the image and click the + icon on the Top-Left corner to create variations. To modify the image any further you can click on Edit from the “Actions” menu. Once you are happy with the image, you can upscale the image by clicking on Actions and Upscale by 4k. The image will be upscaled and you can download the image.
Now that you have the image and like to make it transparent by removing the background. There are so many ways you can do this, depending on the complexity of the image. You can upload your image to free sites where you can remove your background with one click. If those sites didn’t do the job well, go to PhotoPea.com which is a Free replica of Photoshop.
