Ideogram Editor

With Ideogram's Editor feature, you can modify an image as you see fit, cropping, resizing, tweaking and making adjustments that will be taken into account in conjunction with your prompt the next time you remix it. You can even use it to design, from scratch, the visual composition of the image you want to achieve. To access this feature, simply select the prompt field and choose one of the two available options:

  1. Click or tap on the pencil icon (Editor) to access the feature, or

  2. If you already have an image present from a previous generation or an image you've uploaded, click or tap the pencil icon on the right-hand side of the image in question.

You can use the editor to draw any image from scratch. Ideogram's model can handle abstract drawings:

Prompt: Photo of a frog on a country road at sunset. (Remixed at a strength of 4/5 and without Magic Prompt.)


Then, you can add some text to it this way:

Adjusting the prompt to include your text: Photo of a frog on a country road at sunset with text "Have a good day!" in swirly lettering (Remixed at a strength of 4/5 and without Magic Prompt.)


Finally, lets add a dragonfly to the image, just because we can:

Updated prompt: Photo of a frog and a dragonfly on a country road at sunset with text "Have a good day!" in swirly lettering

(Remixed at a strength of 4/5 and no Magic Prompt.)
