Since I posted the first Oregon 💚 image half a year ago, a lot has happened in the image generating world.
I got access to DALL-2 some months ago, but didn’t bother to blog about it. I did include some DALL-2 generated images in some of my AI Tales, e.g. Doge at The Cataract.
Stable Diffusion is now the latest thing everyone is talking about, partly because it is much more accessible than DALL-E 2. It produces better results than VQGAN+CLIP and runs flawlessly on my consumer GPU from 2019. I use a web UI developed by sd-webui to generate images, and it has become my go-to for image generation. For example, Stable Diffusion created a compelling image for the latest installment of the Assandra & Capybara series.
Anyway, I thought it would be appropriate to see what comes out of the “Oregon 💚” prompt with Stable Diffusion. The headlines below correspond to the prompt used, and I spent very little time curating the images.
