Choose your candy
It's Halloween and you're sorting candy. Which are you keeping and which are you trading?
I'm experimenting with the version of DALL-E 3 that's currently included in ChatGPT (there's another version in Bing chat). It's much better than DALL-E 2 at generating candy bars, but fortunately they are not photorealistic yet.
DALL-E 3 does do a better job if I asked for just one specific candy bar - for example, it mostly spells "Butterfinger" correctly. However it does suffer from what I've described elsewhere as "the kitten effect", in which its quality gets worse the more of them it has to do at a single go.
Note that if I give it a prompt like "Please generate a photorealistic set of classic fun sized candy bars" the ChatGPT interface will vary this on its own into four much wordier prompts specifying details I never asked for. One example of what the above prompt turned into: "Photo of a collection of classic fun-sized candy bars arranged neatly on a white background. The candy bars have vibrant wrappers, and popular brands like chocolate nougat, caramel-filled, and peanut butter are visible." It makes it hard to repeat any given prompt, because it's always changed by the system before ChatGPT gives the prompt to DALL-E3.
I also wonder if the extra wordiness is affecting the names of the candy bars. Otherwise I'm at a loss to figure out where these candy bar names came from:
