No company has capitalized on ChatGPT’s capabilities as Microsoft. Since its historic February 2023 announcement, the company has launched or previewed the integration of ChatGPT into nearly all of Microsoft’s software–starting with Bing and Edge, down to its Microsoft 365 Copilot for its 365 apps, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams and more.
Review and How to Use Microsoft Designer
Today, we reviewed Microsoft’s new Designer platform, which enables people to create graphic design, assisted by AI. We were so impressed with how easy to use it is. Here are the steps:
1.Sign in to Microsoft Designer at https://designer.microsoft.com/.
2.Type in a prompt or an idea you want to create in the box below. If you want to use your own image, upload it by clicking “Add image.” If you want Microsoft to generate a specific image for you, select “Generate image.” But you can just use a text prompt without designating any image. Just click “Generate.“
3.On the right side, Microsoft Designer will do its magic and offer you different design options. You can change the size by clicking the “Size” drop down menu. Once you have the right size, you can click on the design you like and then click the “Customize design” button. If you don’t like any of the options, you can click “Generate” again or add more words to your prompt until you get something you like.
4.Microsoft Designer will then give you various alternatives based on your selection. You can add more media and visuals to the graphic, change the font type and size, and develop branding with the brand kit suggestions. Or you can use of the many filters to create a certain look, such as Warm. Then just “Download.”

Bottom line: we couldn’t be more impressed with Microsoft’s Designer. It’s intuitive and so easy to use. Plus, the design options generated seem very sleek and responsive to the prompts. The only worry we have is whether it will reduce the demand for graphic designers. It might.
