TLDR Stable diffusion is an AI image generation technology that can be enhanced and utilized effectively through the use of different models, techniques, resources, and platforms, but it also faces challenges such as security and accuracy.
Stable diffusion is an AI image generation technology that uses a neural network to generate pictures by running input through the model, with the option of using texture inversion.
Stable diffusion involves generating new elements in a picture through a neural network, with the quality of the final image closely related to the training model used, and it is important to find a good model derived from the basic model of stable diffusion V1.5.
Using smaller models like Laura or Texture Inversion can enhance specific scenes in pictures, while plug-ins like Control NAND and InPane can be modified to improve picture effects; it is important to use Stable Diffusion Web UI on Github for accessing new technologies and information, even without a graphics card or MacBook.
Stable diffusion models can be trained using templates like 1.5 or 2.0 and fine-tuned, instead of starting from scratch, unless there is sensitive data or significant changes required; Dream Boost allows models to learn objects or styles from a small set of pictures, but alternative solutions are being developed to reduce training time and space.
Texture inversion and lora techniques allow for obtaining new results from a smaller neural network without changing previous checkpoints, and it is important to find a suitable basic model before deciding on training methods, which can be learned through the mentioned resources, and cloud services like AWS or Microsoft Cloud are recommended for MacBook users without a GPU.
Apply for a pre-installed mirror with necessary software to easily run programs; remember to turn off Amazon cloud service when not in use to avoid charges; consider buying a local GPU for cost-effectiveness and resale options.
CVTAR and CVTAR AI are websites where you can find stable diffusion models and tools, while Reddit, Bilibili, and GitHub offer tutorials and information, but the main challenge is effectively utilizing accurate results.
Accurate description of a scene requires precise use of positive and negative concept words, improvement in technology and success rate, and filtering out bad content and information; security is a problem that stable diffusion development will face, so it is important to pay attention and solve small problems to become successful in the industry; understand the concept before taking action, and if there are any questions or clarifications needed, leave a comment; liking, subscribing, and engaging with the channel is appreciated.
