Months passed since last post, again, life didn’t give me enough free time to goof around. The new cool internet fad is generative AI Art. You write a prompts and AI tried to guess and creates art for you. I tried a bunch, each has different way to interpret your stuff, each has a different art style, unless you specify in a detailed way what kind of image and style you are looking for.
Here’s a list of what I tried until now, all with an example prompt of cute cow logo, round background shape, pastel colors. My current logo is a paid stock image and I won’t replace it as I like it a lot, but as you can see most AI results here are actually pretty good, something one could professionally use.
The only one truly free, formerly know as DALLE-E mini.
Each prompt generates 9 images.
Another free AI. Faster and higher quality than Craiyon, but results are less accurate. Each prompt generates 3 images.
50 Free credits. 15 free credits each month. $15/115 credits. Each prompt or variation consume 1 credit and generate 4 images.
Requires registration and waiting for an invite.
25 minutes (around 25 prompts). Then montlhy sub starting at $10 for 200 miniutes (200 prompts). Each prompt/variation roughly use a minute and generates 4 images.
Online beta with 200 free prompts. Then 10£ for 1k prompts. Each prompt generates one image.
Stable Diffusion is actually Open Source, so you can run it locally if you have a recent high VRAM (10 gb recommended) Nvidia GPU.
Little SD update: https://rentry.org/GUItard . Here’s a link to a noob proof guide for installing SD on your pc, optimized for 6GB VRAM cards and with a low memory (4GB VRAM) mode.
