What is Stable Diffusion Automatic1111?

Stable Diffusion is a latent diffusion model, a kind of deep generative artificial neural network. Its code and model weights have been released publicly, and it can run on most consumer hardware equipped with a modest GPU with at least 8 GB VRAM. This marked a departure from previous proprietary text-to-image models such as DALL-E and Midjourney which were accessible only via cloud services.

Unlike free cloud-based AI programs such as StableDiffusionWeb, Dall-E, Bing Image Creator, Leonardo or Lexica, Stable Diffusion Automatic1111 stands out distinctly. Its unmatched capability to produce highly personalized and unique images sets it apart in a league of its own.


  • Training Data:
    Models, sometimes called checkpoint files, are pre-trained Stable Diffusion weights intended for generating general or a particular genre of images.
  • Fine-Tuning:
    Fine-tuning is a common technique in machine learning. It takes a model that is trained on a wide dataset and trains a bit more on a narrow dataset.
  • Text to Image Generation:
    Generate images from written descriptions or textual prompts. Imagine describing a scene or an object in words, and this AI can take those words and create a visual representation of what you’ve described. It’s like having an AI artist that can turn your words into pictures.

  • Image to Image Generation:
    Creates new images based on existing ones. It takes one image as input and produces a completely different image as output, while maintaining some kind of connection or transformation between them.
  • Controlnet:
    A type of advanced system that’s built to handle models for making images look smoother by adding in extra rules. Imagine it like a super-smart machine with two sets of knowledge: one that learns new stuff and another that holds onto the original stuff. This way, when we teach it with only a few pairs of images, it won’t mess up the original smooth image models that are all set to use.
