This program cannot be used on regular browsers, but needs to be launched from the Discord platform, which generally brings together internet "communities" by offering an online gathering space. Additionally, MidJourney is free for a limited period only, followed by a subscription ranging from $12 to approximately $73 per month based on usage time on the platform.
Stable Diffusion boasts the ability to create "photo-realistic images" by combining individual creativity with various databases on the platform. Usable directly from the internet, it brings creations to life through both positive commands (like "decorated pot, green and gold") and negative commands (like "no white").
Image generated automatically with Stable Diffusion using the aforementioned commands as examples.
Although its level of accuracy may vary, especially depending on the specificity of the request, a strength of Stable Diffusion is its active community that provides entire libraries of pre-created images on various topics. Furthermore, the platform is particularly accessible thanks to its free nature and the absence of a need for preliminary skills to use it.
Dall-E 2 is a software that belongs to the same family as the much more famous ChatGPT. Extremely refined, the resources of this platform can be leveraged directly online through a highly intuitive interface that allows ample creative freedom for the user. Despite the many advantages it offers, such as the existence of a profile that can be shared and used for professional purposes, there is currently no free plan that allows the generation of desired images - not even for a limited period. It is necessary to purchase packages of 115 credits in order to carry out as many creations, at a price of $15 per package.
Probably the tool most adaptable to individual needs, Neutral Love is software that can be used directly online not only to create images, but also to improve existing ones. The online interface allows easy navigation between different sections of the site, both for generating and drawing inspiration from creations already made available by the community.
