It's one thing to know how to run Stable Diffusion on your computer to create AI generated images, but it's another thing to have the hardware to run it. Luckily, if you don't have the GPU power to rev up Stable Diffusion on your own computer, you can always use these sites to use Stable Diffusion right on your browser!

Tip: Check out these photo editors that use AI to enhance your images.

1. Prodia - Best for Prompt Practice

Pricing: Free / $4.99 (Pro) / $19.99 (Pro+)

Prodia might look basic, but it's a reliable site that lets you generate images on the fly. It has everything you need to make an image from a prompt, then tweak your seed and prompt until you get the image you want. The best thing about this site is that you can generate images with a variety of Stable Diffusion models for free and without limit - making it a good tool to practice prompt writing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I really need to buy a GPU to run Stable Diffusion?

The more important thing here is the VRAM. If your GPU doesn't have enough VRAM, expect a terribly slow generation with Stable Diffusion.

Why don't web apps that use Stable Diffusion allow importing of models?

The main reason why they don't lets you upload custom models is that these models can get pretty big. A single model alone can take tens or hundreds of gigabytes of storage. Now imagine thousands of people logging in to generate a single image from some obscure model - that's going to take up bandwidth and disk space pretty quick.

Why does Catbird take so long to generate images?

The first reason is that you might be mixing too many models. Try to reduce these, especially when you're using it at Chill Mode. The other is that there just might be too many users generating things at the same time, so it might be best to take another go at another time.

What diffusion model should I use for generating anime characters on Prodia?

On Prodia, you can use Anything V3, V4.5, and V5 to generate anime-style characters. Of these, Anything V5 has the best anime-looking style with crisp colors and contrast. Anything V3, on the other hand, has a more dreamy characteristic. You'll see more of that dreaminess on Anything V4.5.
