Image Description: How to use the /describe command

One of the commands you can use in KoalaChat is the /describe command.

/describe Optional: Provide extra context or instructions here.

It tells KoalaChat to create a description of the image you provide the link to.

However, since the language model adds extra context without actually “seeing” the image, this can lead to it making up incorrect information. In the future, when image-to-caption AI models are improved, this could become more accurate.

In the meantime, you can improve its accuracy by providing extra context in the prompt.


For example, I want to make KoalaChat describe this image which can be found on Unsplash here:

Now, to make KoalaChat describe the image, I would type this as the prompt:


Note: To get the best results, please use the image URL. Click "Open image in a new tab" — that URL is the one you want to use.

Once I click Enter, KoalaChat will describe the image in three ways. This is the output from the prompt I gave:

Additional Context

This is optional, but if you want to give additional context, you could type that after the image URL.

For example, let's pretend that the image was taken in Hawaii. Then, this would be my prompt:

/describe Hawaii

Here is the output of that prompt:

If you don't get the results you want on the first try, you could give additional context and try again.
