Image Prompts Guide

Creating a good image prompt for a Stable Diffusion model, like the one used in our image generation tool, involves clear and detailed descriptions. Here's a brief tutorial to guide you.

Tutorial: Writing Effective Image Prompts for Stable Diffusion Models

Understanding Stable Diffusion Models

Stable Diffusion models generate images based on textual prompts. These models excel at interpreting descriptive and specific language to create visuals.
Your prompt is the guide, and the model is the artist.

Step 1: Be Specific and Detailed

Vivid Descriptions: Use vivid, descriptive language. For instance, instead of saying "a person," describe their appearance in detail. Mention characteristics like gender, age, clothing, hairstyle, and any distinguishing features.
For example, "a young woman with long, curly red hair, wearing a vintage green dress and a wide-brimmed hat, holding a leather-bound journal."
Environment and Atmosphere: Include details about the setting or background. For example, "standing on a sunny beach" or "in a dimly lit, cozy room."
Mood and Tone: Convey the mood or tone of the image. Phrases like "serene and peaceful" or "dynamic and energetic" can greatly influence the outcome.

Step 2: Balance Creativity and Clarity

Creativity: Feel free to be imaginative, but ensure your ideas can be visually represented. Abstract concepts need concrete visual elements to be effective.
Clarity: Avoid ambiguity. If you want a specific style or theme, like "cyberpunk" or "renaissance," state it clearly.

Step 3: Use Comparative References (Optional)

Artistic References: You can mention styles or elements of known artists or art movements. For example, "in the style of Van Gogh" or "reminiscent of Art Nouveau."
Cinematic References: If you want a scene reminiscent of a film or a specific cinematographic style, mention it. For instance, "like a scene from a classic noir film."

Step 4: Consider Composition and Perspective

Composition: Think about how the elements in your image should be arranged. Do you want a central focus, or a more balanced, symmetrical composition?
Perspective: Decide on the viewpoint. Do you prefer a bird’s-eye view, a close-up, or a wide-angle perspective? Each choice dramatically changes the feel of the image.

Step 5: Review and Refine

Before submitting your prompt, review it for clarity and completeness. Ensure it reflects exactly what you envision. If the first attempt doesn’t capture your idea, refine your prompt with more specifics or adjust the descriptions.

Examples:

  • A scene from the Renaissance period, capturing the busy streets of Florence. The focus is a middle-aged man with a thoughtful expression, dressed in period-appropriate attire - a rich burgundy robe with golden embroidery. He has short, neatly-trimmed hair and a prominent beard. In the background, various merchants and townspeople go about their day, with architecture reminiscent of the era, like stone buildings and a distant view of the Florence Cathedral. The mood is lively and bustling, with a warm, golden afternoon light casting long shadows
  • A serene and peaceful sunrise scene in a mountainous area. The image features a small, clear lake reflecting the vibrant colors of the sunrise. On the shore, an elderly man with a gentle smile, white hair, and a walking stick, is sitting on a rock. He's wearing simple, earth-toned clothing. Around him, there's lush greenery, with a mix of pine trees and a distant view of snow-capped mountains. The composition emphasizes the calmness of nature, with soft, diffused morning light and a mist gently rising from the lake's surface.
