How to Create Best Prompts for Stable Diffusion

The AI model converts text into images through the prompts for Stable Diffusion. Millions of image and text description pairs from the internet were used to train it. The model is aware of which text description corresponds to which photographs as a result of its extensive experience.

That such visuals can be created using keyword-pixel correlations is amazing! It’s amazing how well it integrates the artistic style, faces (our brains are incredibly picky about even the smallest flaws), and shadows while maintaining a nice look. Human minds are incapable of comprehending the awe of enormous numbers.

The quality of the prompt determines the quality of the picture.

How to Build Good Prompts

There are tried-and-true methods for producing precise, high-quality photographs. However, most of these, if not all of these, should be covered in your prompt:

  • Subject: First, you will need a subject in order to create good prompts for Stable Diffusion. For example, the image that is produced for the prompt “A young woman with light blue dress sitting next to a wooden window reading a book” is given below:

  • Style
  • Artist
  • Website
  • Resolution
  • Additional details
  • Color

Putting them all together, the final prompt for Stable Diffusion is:

Tips for Good Prompts:

  • When discussing the topic, be specific and in-depth.
  • To make it stronger, use multiple brackets (), and to make it weaker, use [].
  • Pick a media that is suited for the artist. Thus, Van Gogh shouldn’t be paired with, say, a photograph.
  • The name of the artist is a powerful stylistic modifier. Use prudently.
  • Try combining different styles.
  • Visit the prompt section to review the excellent prompts. Use the prompt as a place to start if there is an image you particularly enjoy.
