The secrets to creating realistic images with Stable Diffusion
First of all, to get realistic results, it’s important to choose your “prompts” carefully. If you’re wondering what a prompt is, it’s simply the text you write that helps direct the artificial intelligence. In fact, it is the basic functionality of Stable Diffusion Online. Obviously, there are other more advanced features that can be configured. By following the following tips, you will be able to create stunning images. Some of these will even be difficult to distinguish from those created by a human. Even so, the best solution is to gain experience on your own, by testing many different prompts for example.
Tips for creating effective prompts with Stable Diffusion
- Be imaginative: human beings are capable of an overflowing imagination, let yourself go!
- Choose relevant keywords to describe what you want to create. The AI will then be able to better satisfy you.
- Don’t be afraid to get creative with your prompts. Try all sorts of combinations (even crazy ones) of keywords to get original results.
- Use lots of adjectives to describe the appearance of the image you want.
Examples of prompts and results:
- “a frontal close-up portrait of a female model wearing an intricate golden detailed bear owl helmet, epic pose, dramatic lighting, crisp details, full focus”
- “the golden hare, by christopher kit williams dramatic lighting, smooth, sharp focus, extremely detailed”
- “a man, leather jacket brown, fantasy art, highly detailed, dramatic lighting, concept art”
