Stability AI, the world’s leading open-source generative artificial intelligence company, has announced the latest version of its Stable Diffusion series – the Stable Diffusion XL (SDXL). This new model brings image generation to the next level by providing detailed imagery and composition with enhanced photorealism capabilities. The release of SDXL’s API will be followed by an open-source release of SDXL, available on Stability AI’s platform, to further promote open-source accessibility to its users.
SDXL’s Features: Enhanced Composition and Rich Visuals
SDXL’s capabilities go beyond text-to-image prompting, making it a valuable tool across several industries. With its enhanced image composition and face generation features, the model now boasts photorealism, rich visuals, and jaw-dropping aesthetics. In addition, SDXL is more efficient with shorter prompts to create descriptive imagery and also has the ability to produce legible text.
Aside from photo generation, SDXL has other functionalities such as image-to-image prompting, inpainting, and outpainting. The model also powers the most recent version of Stability AI’s premium consumer imaging application DreamStudio.
Accessing Stable Diffusion XL: API and Open-Source Release
To access SDXL, users can visit the StableDiffusion XL API and create texture-rich photos that can be used in graphic design and architecture. The open-source version of SDXL is currently in beta testing and will be available on Stability AI’s platform upon its release. By making SDXL open-source, Stability AI promotes accessibility to its user base and expands its reach to a wider audience.
“The power of open source is tapping into the vast potential of individuals who have the ability to do something incredible with one”, said Stability AI’s Chief Technology Officer, Tom Mason.
Stable Diffusion XL is a significant step forward in the lineage of Stability AI’s image generation models, providing next-level photorealism, rich visuals and efficient performance across different industries. Its functionality extends beyond photo generation, with capabilities like image-to-image prompting and inpainting. With the release of an open-source version currently in beta testing, SDXL aims to make its features more accessible to its users, promoting open-source accessibility and expanding its reach to a wider audience.
