Have trouble finding a specific image or reference you want to provide your designer? Let Design Pickle's Create Assist help you!

Create Assist can generate images based on keywords, text prompts, and assets you provide. It's a helpful AI (Artificial Intelligence) tool to visually communicate your ideas to your designer, providing a great starting point for your designer on which design direction to take.

Step 1

Click on the + button in the request form, then Help me create imagery


Step 2

A popup will appear, and you'll have two options on how you can generate an image:

  1. Generate an image using text

  2. Generate using text and image

1. Generate an image using text

Simply type a description of the image you want the AI to produce, then, click on the Generate button.

2. Generate using text and image

To generate an image closer to what you had in mind, you can also supplement your text input with image input! To do this, upload a reference image* along with your description. Then, click Generate!

*Note: There is a 4 MB limit when uploading images

Step 3

A loading window will appear. You may wait for the process to finish before closing this window, or return to your request's description textbox by clicking the X button. But don't worry, closing this window won't cancel the process!

If you close the loading window, you will see a gray banner loading on your request form.

Step 4

Once Create Assist has finished processing, the banner will turn green.

Click on View to see the images it has generated!

Step 5

Select the image you'd like to include in your design request's instructions (you may select up to 8).

Once you've selected your images, click the Add to request button.

Step 6

You can annotate the image with your instructions once you've added the generated image to your request.

Create Assist's generated images will also have a sparkling magic wand icon underneath it so you can easily differentiate it from other assets uploaded in your request.

Do these images replace what I get from my designer?

  • Never! These are only meant to inspire your designer and help you communicate your vision.

Are these images my final designs?

  • Nope! These are simply just a jumping off point to help you express your vision beyond written words.

Can I download and print these images?

  • We don't recommend printing or sharing them as they are very low resolution, and they are not intended to be final designs.

Does Request Assist know my brand and history of requests?

  • Not yet! But soon, Request Assist will take into consideration your historical requests, your industry, and profile to help deliver an on-point creative brief.

How can I improve the quality of the AI generated images created by Create Assist?

  • At the moment, the quality is capped to what it currently creates. However these images are not meant to be final designs, so the best way to use it is as a starting point for your design ideas!
