Those who are not used to a command line are usually left out of current AI developments. Because if you want to try out scientific code, it is usually only executable under a UNIX environment.
But as is so often the case, there are always great developments to be discovered in the open source community. After the Stable Diffusion Model is already freely usable under an open licence, the developer Abdullah Alfaraj has been tackling a free integration in Photoshop for some time.
His "Auto-Photoshop-StableDiffusion-Plugin" has long made it possible for AI-unaffiliated users to use the stable diffusion model directly in Photoshop for their own experiments by allowing it to be used as a plugin within Photoshop in a familiar environment. Even a automatic installer is available.
Equally remarkable, however, is now the nimble integration of ControlNet. This addition has been added to introduced only a few days ago and allows much improved control over image composition by adding an "explanatory" image to the prompt.
With the new version, ControlNet can now also be used directly in Photoshop. There are lots of explanations and tutorials about the plugin on the GutHub project page.
Hats off, we are already installing and trying it out...
