What are Some of the Best Prompts to Use With an AI Image Generator to Get Great Images?

Forget the forced smiles and staged handshakes, the awkward business attire and the endless rows of identical coffee shops. Stock photos, once the lifeblood of marketing materials, are now a stale cliché. They're predictable, expensive, and often cringe-inducingly inauthentic. 

Enter the AI image generator, a revolutionary tool that's shaking up the visual landscape and leaving those tired stock photos in the dust. Unlike their pixelated predecessors, these AI-powered wizards conjure up unique, custom images that resonate with your audience and fit your brand like a glove. And the best part? They're a fraction of the cost, allowing you to ditch the subscription fees and unleash your creativity without breaking the bank.

However, when most people use an AI image generator for the first time, the results they get, even with the most sophisticated of them, are not great at best and horrifyingly bad at worst, especially if you want to include faces (the image above is AI by the way) 

This is because feeding these artistic bots the information they need to create great images is something of an art in itself. Which is why 'what are some of the best prompts to use with an AI image generator to get the best images' is an increasingly asked question. 

While there is no easy answer (but you guessed that already), the best prompts for an AI image generator depend on what type of image you're hoping to create, but here are some general tips and prompts to get you started:

General Tips:

  • Be specific: Use clear and concise language to describe what you want the image to look like. The more details you provide, the better the AI can understand your vision.
  • Use adjectives and adverbs: These words add richness and texture to your prompts, helping the AI understand the mood and tone you want.
  • Mention visual elements: Include details about things like composition, lighting, color palette, and style.
  • Reference real art or artists: If you have a specific style in mind, mention it by name. You can also use the style of a particular artist as inspiration.
  • Be concise: While detail is important, avoid overly long or rambling prompts.
  • Experiment and iterate: Don't be afraid to try different prompts and see what works best. You can also tweak your prompts based on the results you get.

Example Prompts:


  • A photorealistic portrait of a young woman with red hair, freckles, and piercing blue eyes, gazing out at a stormy sea.
  • A watercolor painting of a majestic oak tree in autumn, with leaves ablaze in shades of orange, red, and yellow.
  • A classic painting of a bustling marketplace in a medieval city, filled with colorful stalls and lively characters.
  • A pixel art illustration of a retro futuristic cityscape with flying cars and neon skyscrapers.
  • A detailed sketch of a mythical creature, half-human and half-bird, perched on a rocky cliff face overlooking a misty forest.


  • The feeling of pure joy, captured in a vibrant abstract painting.
  • The loneliness of a single spaceship drifting through the vast emptiness of space.
  • The chaos and destruction of a volcanic eruption, rendered in a dramatic style.
  • The tranquility of a Japanese zen garden, bathed in soft morning light.
  • The power and majesty of a lioness protecting her cubs, depicted in a realistic style.

Art Movement and Historical Era:

  • A landscape in the style of Van Gogh, with swirling brushstrokes and vivid colors.
  • A portrait of a Roman emperor in the style of classical sculpture.
  • A cyberpunk cityscape reminiscent of Blade Runner.
  • A fairy tale scene in the style of Art Nouveau.
  • A historical battle scene in the style of a battlefield painting by Jacques-Louis David.
