WordPress has unveiled a new plugin that uses Block Diffusion to generate images from text cues. Announced in a Sept. 16 blog post, the advanced machine learning model will allow users to create unique images by inserting the desired text as input.
Users will be able to activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen on WordPress. Other future features will allow users to use an existing image as a starting point, help with quick ideas and inspiration, run multiple image predictions at once, view prediction history and select models from collections.
In 2021, WordPress was used by more than 455 million websites, accounting for 37% of all websites online. Because the feature is open source, interested users can also help support the development of this plugin by sponsoring the project on GitHub.
