_Stable Diffusion

Stable Diffusion is a open-source text to image generative AI model created by Stability AI.

Stable Diffusion is an open-source image generator. This large language model (LLM) permits both text and image as input. It can either create an image from a text prompt, change an image based on a prompt and an image, or even create a video.

This model has been researched and updated in different versions. Stable Diffusion 3 is the most advanced model with the best image quality and speed. It can also respond to multi-object prompts better than older models. Stable Diffusion XL is the older model, and thus, more developers participated in this open-source software project, creating software or websites based on this model. These two models are under permissive licenses for both commercial and non-commercial use, making them available to users for any purpose. Stable Video Diffusion is a video generator capable of generating videos of 2-5 seconds and up to 30 frames per second based on either text or image. However, this model is not yet licensed for commercial use.

The pricing of this model is in the form of credits, with $10 per 1,000 credits and an initial free 25 credits. Different versions of the model cost different credits for image generation, with 6.5 credits for Stable Diffusion 3 and 0.2-0.6 credits for Stable Diffusion XL, and 20 credits for Stable Diffusion Video.

Since this model is available as an API, certain developer skills and coding skills are needed to use it. However, one can also access this model through software created by Stability AI or a user interface created by another developer. For example, Stable Assistant is Stability AI’s chatbot that uses the Stable Diffusion model, allowing prompts to generate images in a chat box interface. This is charged from a standard to premium version (from $9 to $99 per month), which varies by the limit of credits per month. Another way to access it is through a Discord server and use Stable Artisan – the Discord bot by Stability AI – which has the same pricing as Stable Assistant.
