Beginner's Guide to DALL-E 3 Prompts
Oct. 31, 2023
Joe Amditis of the Center for Cooperative Media at Montclair State University just published this free beginner’s guide to image generation with DALL-E 3. It includes a gallery of 50 art styles to use when generating images.
Amditis calls it “a one-stop resource for beginners who are interested in doing some image generation experiments of their own.”
The images and prompts are available as both a gallery version (which I prefer) or as a spreadsheet. The prompts give you a foundation to work from; just take them and modify them to fit what you need.
If Amditis’ work sounds familiar to you, it should. He authored the Beginner’s Prompt Handbook earlier this year to help local newsrooms make the jump to using AI tool.

The Journalist’s Toolbox
My new book, “The Journalist’s Toolbox A Guide to Digital Reporting and AI” will be published by Routledge in December. You can add the book to your wishlist and have the opportunity to pre-order it on Dec. 1.
The book features tips, tricks and training videos on how to use digital tools, AI, mobile apps and more in your reporting. It makes for a great newsroom guide or textbook for reporting and digital courses. It’s available in “E-book Plus”, which embeds training videos and pop-ups directly into the book’s interface. It’s also available in paperback, hard cover and regular e-book format.
Data + Journalism
Samantha Sunne and I co-authored a textbook, “Data + Journalism” that’s available now on Routledge. (Order here). It’s an introductory- to intermediate-level guide to learning data storytelling from A to Z.
It features examples, interviews, links to tools and dozens of practical exercises to learn how to find, scrape, clean, visualize and write with data. We also explore ethics, transparency and basic math skills. We even offer a bonus chapter — Chapter 13 — on diversity and inclusion for free on our blog.
