Images Generated by DALL·E API Disappear After 20 Hours

Hi everyone,

I’ve been utilizing the DALL·E API on my platform to generate images, and while the images are initially saved successfully, I’ve encountered an issue where they disappear after approximately 20 hours or a day, making it impossible to display the same images again.

I’m seeking insights into why these images aren’t being stored long-term. Could it be that they are not truly saved by DALL·E, leading to their deletion from OpenAI’s databases? Or might there be another explanation for their disappearance?

Would storing these images externally be a recommended practice to ensure their longevity?

Hey @sosogolan

OpenAI won’t store your data on long term. You need to store it into your own database.
