AI Art

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.

CrAIyon
https://www.craiyon.com
The only one truly free, formerly know as DALLE-E mini.
Each prompt generates 9 images.

Enstil.AI
https://enstil.ai/
Another free AI. Faster and higher quality than Craiyon, but results are less accurate. Each prompt generates 3 images.

DALL-E 2
https://openai.com/dall-e-2/
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.

MidJourney

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.

Stable Diffusion
https://beta.dreamstudio.ai/
Online beta with 200 free prompts. Then 10拢 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.
