The imagery produced by Stable Diffusion is nothing short of amazing.

If you’re just getting started, the easiest way to try your hand at text-to-image tools will be sites like Lexica or Dream Studio. 

More advanced users can also try Midjourney. Dall-E2 from OpenAI is also an option, although for now it remains my least favorite choice. For a full review of the different tools and their capabilities, click here.

If you’re past the beginner stage and want to really explore maxing out generative art, you’ll need to get a bit technical. Thankfully, there are some great tools available on the internet to run Stable Diffusion for free, access a ton of features, on any computer, without needing to know how to code.

One really great way to access a wide range of Stable Diffusion capabilities is Automatic1111.

Automatic1111 requires a bit of a technical process to set up, but there are some great guides to get started. Big shoutout to Chris Johnston for putting together this incredible YouTube video with instructions on running Automatic1111 in Google Colab.
