My Favorite Stable Diffusion Generated Images

This post is a part of the stable-diffusion series.

If you want to run Stable Diffusion on your own hardware, click here.

Stable Diffusion is a new, free to use, model hosted by Hugging Face, which was produced by Stability AI. This model takes in a text prompt, and produces an image. It was trained on 5.85 billion images. What’s most exciting about it, is it is freely available, and you’re able to run it on your own computer at home!

I’m using a 2080 TI (this is an affiliate link, encase anyone purchases one of these now ancient GPUs ;). This allows me to create an image in under five seconds!

The more prompts I write, the more I learn that “more is more”. I find myself briefly describing the desired scene, but using a lot text to describe the quality of the scene itself. For example, instead of writing:

a photograph of an astronaut riding a horse

and getting this:

astronaut-horse-1.png

you can instead write:

a photograph of an astronaut riding a horse, photo realistic, 4k, detailed, vivid colors, excellent lighting

and get this:

astronaut-horse-2.png

Both of these prompts were created using the same seed, 8318, width and height, 512, 50 inference steps, and a guidance scale of 7.5 Yet the differences are substantial.

Notice how different the results are when we even change just one word
