Dall-E 2


When you're setting up your first workflow with Dall-E 2, you'll need to create an OpenAI API Key.

To create an API Key, go to this url: https://platform.openai.com/account/api-keys. Once there, click on the Create new secret key button.

Then, click on the copy button in the API key generated modal. Paste the copied values into MESA's Dall-E 2 Account Credentials API Key field.

Lastly, click on Add Credential and then you are all set! MESA is now connected with Dall-E 2.


Generated image expires after 1 hour

When using MESA's Dall-E 2 Generate Image action, you will need to keep in mind that all generated images will expire after one hour. Therefore, it is highly recommended to create workflows that use the generated image immediately after an automation runs. You should not store these images in a third party service because they will no longer work.

Best Usage

For the Prompt field, you will want to write a very detailed prompt. The more detailed the prompt is, the more likely you are going to get the result that you want.

Following OpenAI's Usage Policies

Please ensure that you follow OpenAI's Usage Policies when using MESA's Dall-E 2 integration: https://openai.com/policies/usage-policies

ShopPad's Recommendation

We recommend using OpenAI's Dall-E website when testing with MESA's Generate Image action first. This lets you test the prompt that you enter into the action.

How Dall-E 2 Uses Your Data

The Dall-E 2 app makes API calls to OpenAI. Only the variables explicitly configured in the MESA builder will be shared with OpenAI. MESA does not store any of this information beyond your data retention date. OpenAI does not use data submitted to and generated by their API to train OpenAI models or improve OpenAI's service offering.

To opt out of any data sharing with AI models, simply do not use the Dall-E 2 step in any of your workflows.
