AI Creative Upscaler:
Upscale and Enhance Images with AI

The new Creative Upscaler by Stability AI can upscale your images to 4k resolution and create new details that weren't there before. Try it now or see some examples.

Drag and drop an image, or click to uploadTap to choose an image

Describe in detail the image that you want.


Higher creativity lets the AI "hallucinate" more details, lower creativity will be closer to your start image

Note: This feature is currently in ALPHA. We may make changes and optimizations based on feedback.

Upscale and enhance your images like never before

The Creative Upscaler by Stability AI is a best-in-class upscaler that not only increases the resolution of your images, but also adds new details that weren't there before.

It can upscale any low-quality image to 4k resolution (about 9 Megapixels) by combining the input image with a text prompt and "creativity" setting, then "hallucinating" new details to ensure your image looks crystal clear.

Goldeneye - Before
Goldeneye - After

Completely re-imagine ultra low-quality images.

Add new details to your images

Most AI upscalers work by first making the image larger, then smoothing out artifacts and sharpening edges. They don't actually add anything to your image.

The Creative Upscaler is different. It uses a text prompt in conjunction with your image to create new details that weren't there before.

In this example, the prompt included the name "Pierce Brosnan" which resulted in an incredible transformation of the original low-poly video game art into a high-quality cinematic image of Pierce Brosnan as James Bond.

Creative Upscaler FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions about the Creative Upscaler and NightCafe Creator

🎨 How do I use the Stability AI Creative Upscaler?

There are currently two ways to use the Creative Upscaler on NightCafe. The first is at the top of this page - upload an image, add a prompt and click "Enhance". The second way is to enhance an existing NightCafe creation - click the "Upscale" icon that overlays the image in the gallery, then choose "Creative Upscale".

❄️ What makes the Creative Upscaler special?

Unlike other AI upscalers, the Creative Upscaler doesn't just make your image larger, it adds new details that weren't there before. It's like a digital artist that can take your low-quality image and turn it into a high-quality masterpiece.

💸 Does it cost money to use the Creative Upscaler?

Yes. The Creative Upscaler is a premium feature. You must be a PRO member to use it, and it also costs credits to use.

🛠️ Why does the Creative Upscaler cost so much more than something like SDXL?

The Creative Upscaler uses a lot of compute power, and as such, it costs quite a bit more to use than the other AI algorithms on NightCafe. Over time, we expect the cost to come down as the technology improves and becomes more efficient.

🧠 What else can I do on NightCafe?

NightCafe uses multiple state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms such as Stable Diffusion, SDXL, DALL-E 2, Neural Style Transfer, VQGAN+CLIP & CLIP Guided Diffusion, and we implement the Real-ESRGAN algorithm that enhances your AI creations even further!

📱 What platforms does NightCafe Creator work on?

NightCafe Creator's generator works on the web, and can be installed to the home screen of your iPhone, Android phone or tablet so you can use your imagination anytime, anywhere.

🖼️ Do I own the images I generate?

Yes! As long as you own (or have permission to use) the original photo assets, we transfer any Copyright assignment to you - the creator. Please check the Copyright laws in your own country to confirm your local AI regulations. Copyright laws for AI-generated art are still evolving, and some jurisdictions will not grant any Copyright ownership at all.

Cheers to you, this awesome platform, and this incredible community. A heck ton of good days ahead.
