Intro

Hey there! If you're reading this, you're probably new to AI image generation and want to learn more. If you're not, you probably already know more than me :). Yeah, full disclosure: I'm still pretty inexperienced at this whole thing, but I thought I could still share some of the things I've learned with you! So, in no particular order:

1. You can like your own posts

I doubt there's anyone who doesn't know this already, but if you're posting your favorite generations and you care about getting likes, you can always like them yourself. Sketchy? Kinda. Do I still do it? Yes. And on the topic of getting more likes:

2. Likes will often be returned

Whenever I receive a like on one of my posts, I'll look at that person's pictures and heart any that I particularly enjoy. I know a lot of people do this, so one of the best ways to get people to notice and like your content is to just browse through posts and be generous with your own likes. It's a great way to get inspiration too!

3. Use turbo/lightning LORAs

If you find yourself running out of credits, there are ways to conserve them. When I'm iterating on an idea, I'll use a SDXL model (Meina XL) paired with this LORA. This lets me get high quality images in 10 steps for only 0.4 credits! It's really nice, and works with any SDXL model. Unfortunately, if there is a similar method for speeding up SD 1.5 models I don't know it, so it only works with XL.

4. Use ADetailer smartly

ADetailer is the best solution I've found for improving faces and hands. It's also a little difficult to figure out. So, though I'm still not a professional with it, I thought I could share some of the tricks I've learned. The models I normally use are face_yolo8s.pt and hand_yolo8s.pt. The "8s" versions are better than the "8n" versions, though they are slightly slower. In addition to these models, I'll often add the Attractive Eyes and Perfect Hand LORAs respectively. These are all just little things you can do to improve these notoriously hard parts of image generation. Also, using ADetailer before upscaling the image is cheaper in terms of credits, though the upscaling process can sometimes mess up the hands and face a little bit so there's some give and take there.

5. Use an image editing app

Wait a minute, I hear you saying, isn't this a guide for using Tensor Art? Yes, but you can still use other tools to improve your images. If I don't like a specific part of my image, I'll download it, open it in Krita (Or Photoshop or Gimp) and work on it. My art skills are pretty bad, (which is why I'm using this site in the first place,) but I can still remove, recolor, or edit certain aspects of the image. I can then reupload it to Tensor Art, and Img2img with a high denoising strength to improve it further. You could also just try inpainting the specific thing you want to change, but I always find it a bit of a struggle to get inpaint to make the changes I want.

6. Experiment!

The best way to learn is to do, so just start generating images, fiddling with settings, and trying new things. I still feel like I'm learning new stuff every day, and this technology is improving so fast that I don't think anyone will ever truly master it. But we can still try our hardest and hone our skills through experimentation, sharing knowledge, and getting more familiar with these models.

And all the anime girls are a big plus too.

Outro

If you have anything to add, or even a tip you'd like to share, definitely leave a comment and maybe I can add it to this article. This list is obviously not exhaustive, and I'm no where near as talented as some of the people on this platform. Still though, I hope to have helped at least one person today. If that was you, maybe give the article a like? I appreciate it a ton, so if you enjoyed, just let me know. Thanks for reading!
