Tools to explore the World of AI-Generated Images
In this post, I’ve compiled a list of tools that have been helpful in experimenting with AI-generated images. There are more complex tools if you want to build your own python environments, but I’ve left this list to be just those that are easily used and accessible.
DALL-E, IMO, best translation of complex text entry into images. Also has good “In Painting” and “Out Painting” for an online tool, allowing you to “re-roll” or re-imagine portions of the image. It has some trial tokens, but is a paid API.
MidJourney generates amazing photo realistic and art photos, and has the best generation that I’ve seen. It has a number of free tokens, is used through Discord, but eventually you have to pay a bit.
For best results add
--v 4 to your prompts.
DiffusionBee - Stable Diffusion App for AI Art
DiffusionBee is the easiest way to generate AI art on your computer with Stable Diffusion. Completely free of charge.
If you have an M1 Macbook and want to generate images easily (and locally) DiffusionBee is an easily downloaded app that uses your own computer to generate images (DALL-E and MidJourney both use web based hosting). You can also download different .ckpt models (Training models) allowing for more variation and less restriction than the online models (See HuggingFace).
