Using ChatGPT to analyze images and provide instructions

Can ChatGPT analyze images and give useful suggestions?

The short answer is ‘yes’.  The longer answer is, ‘you have to make sure your prompt conveys exactly what you need.

ChatGPT prompt to analyze and provide instructions:

Here is a basic prompt asking ChatGPT to analyze the image, provide instructions, tell us what to look out for, and a final, “is everything ok” check question.

…and here is what ChatGPT came up with:

The image depicts a person in the process of changing a car tire. Here’s a step-by-step documentation of the process:

  1. Prepare the Vehicle: Before lifting the vehicle, make sure it is parked on a flat, stable surface. Engage the parking brake and place wheel chocks behind the wheels opposite to the one being changed to prevent the car from rolling.
  2. Loosen the Lug Nuts: Using a lug wrench, loosen the lug nuts of the flat tire by turning them counterclockwise. Don’t remove the nuts entirely just yet—just loosen them enough that they can be unscrewed by hand after the car is lifted.
  3. Lift the Car: Position the jack under the car at the specified lift point (consult the vehicle’s owner’s manual) and raise the vehicle off the ground. The flat tire should be completely off the ground to allow for its removal.
  4. Remove the Flat Tire: Finish unscrewing the lug nuts and carefully remove the flat tire by pulling it straight towards you and off the hub.
  5. Mount the Spare Tire: Lift the spare tire onto the hub, line up the holes, and push it all the way in. Screw the lug nuts on by hand as tight as you can.
  6. Lower the Car: Carefully lower the car back to the ground by slowly turning the jack handle counterclockwise but do not fully remove the jack.
  7. Tighten the Lug Nuts: Once the car is back on the ground, use the lug wrench to fully tighten the lug nuts in a star pattern to ensure even pressure.
  8. Finish Lowering the Car: Completely lower the car and remove the jack. Double-check the tightness of the lug nuts.
  9. Stow Equipment and Flat Tire: Put all tools back in their place and secure the flat tire in your vehicle.
  10. Check Spare Tire Pressure: After the change, ensure the spare tire is at the correct pressure.

Things to be Mindful of:

  • Always keep a spare tire, a jack, and a lug wrench in your vehicle.
  • Use gloves if possible, as this process can lead to dirty hands and possibly minor injuries.
  • Work with caution to avoid injury, and never put any part of your body under the vehicle while it is lifted.
  • Note that some spare tires are “space-savers” and have limitations on speed and distance.
  • After driving away, make an appointment to repair or replace the flat tire.

Question for User: Have all the lug nuts been tightened securely and has the car been lowered completely off the jack?


As with any interaction with ChatGPT (or any other AI), your prompt wording and syntax is crucial in getting the desired result.
