How to Create Beautiful AI-Generated Art Images With the Right Prompts

Stable diffusion is a technique used to create AI-generated art images, often in the style of a particular artist or artwork. 🎨🖌️

It’s often used by apps like OpenAI’s Dall-E 2, Craiyon, Midjourney,, Simplified, Stable Diffusion, Wombo Dream, and Starryai, which allow users to experiment and get creative with different styles, subjects, and models, from a description in natural language.

It can be a fantastic way to design unique and diverse images — that is, if you know how to control the total randomness of the generation process. One of the key factors to mastering stable diffusion and getting the best out of these apps is the quality of the prompts given. ️💬

💡 *Writing a perfect prompt can be challenging but is crucial for getting the desired output.

What is a Prompt in AI-Art Generator Apps

Simply speaking, a prompt is a command that you give to the app. The AI won’t really think about what you wrote and analyze it. It will just follow your orders. 🫡

So the more specific and direct you are, the higher the chances of you getting a truly unique and beautiful AI-generated art image.

Some examples of prompts are:

“Generate an abstract portrait of Frida Kahlo”

“Create a landscape painting in the style of Bob Ross, with a river and a forest”

“Make a still life image of fruits in the style of Paul Cezanne”

How to Write the Best Prompts to Generate AI-Art

To write the best prompts for stable diffusion, it’s important to keep a few things in mind. Here are some tips for you to write prompts that result in high-quality AI-generated art images:

1. Be specific

The more specific your prompt, the more likely it is that the AI will generate an image that closely matches your desired output.

For example, instead of asking the AI to generate an image of a “landscape,” you could ask it to generate an image of a “beach landscape with a rising sun, with palm trees over the sand”.

2. Use high-quality reference images

If you wish, you can create variations of an image you already have. The AI will use the reference image you provide as a guide for generating the new images.

Make sure that you use high-quality, well-composed reference images. This will help ensure that the AI generates an image that is visually pleasing.

3. Be consistent with the prompt

Be consistent with the theme and the style you want the output image to have.

Adding contrasting styles to the same prompt will only confuse the AI, and you’ll probably not get what you’re looking for.

If you request an image “as an oil painting”, for instance, it wouldn’t make sense to also add to the prompt “as a pencil drawing”.

Same for styles. Asking for an image “in the style of Andy Warhol” won’t generate pics “in a photorealistic style” — so make up your mind before writing your request.

4. Be clear and concise

Avoid using overly complicated language or terminology, and stick to simple, straightforward instructions.

This will make it easier for the AI to understand your commands and to follow them.

5. Provide ample context and negative prompts if needed

If your prompt is asking the AI to generate an image based on a specific topic, you should provide ample context that can help the AI understand what the topic is about.

Say you want a cabin in the mountains during summer. It should have no snow, right? You can improve context by adding negative prompts.

These consist of instructions on what not to include in the arts, or on what to prioritize within the models. Each app will have its specific guidelines for that, so it’s worth checking their procedures.

Wrapping up

If you follow these tips, the more likely it will be for the generated art to match the desired output from start. This opens a door to infinite creative possibilities and gives you access to a virtually limitless supply of AI-generated art images in a wide range of styles and subjects. 🚀

Of course, the more you practice with stable diffusion, the better you will be at crafting the perfect prompts to generate images that stand out.

It’s a fun and exciting way to explore your imaginative side — even if you don’t have that many artistic skills yourself! 😁
