State of the art
Stable Diffusion is the new darling of the AI Art world. An open-source AI text-to-image algorithm that can go toe-to-toe with DALL-E and Imagen.
Images generated with Stable Diffusion are incredibly coherent. This image of a Llama wearing a hat was generated in just a few seconds from a fairly basic text-prompt. Read more about Stable Diffusion on NightCafe or dive right in and start creating now!
Text to image AI
Create beautiful art images from nothing but a text prompt with NightCafe Creator. Our AI image generator will "paint" anything you want - it's as simple as asking. Our text-to-image art generator can render just about anything you can put into words using VQGAN CLIP algorithms. Try a cultural reference, poem, lyric, or random phrase, and the AI transformer will turn the words into a piece of art. The creativity is in your words.
Finding the right combination of words to generate your intended output is the challenge. The initial result may not be what you had in mind, but it will always be interesting! With time, you will learn how to use the image generation tools and how to create the images you are looking for.
Create Coherent Images
NightCafe now also offers a second text-to-image AI algorithm called CLIP-Guided Diffusion, which we refer to as the "Coherent" algorithm. The coherent algorithm is fantastic at generating more realistic images, composed in a believable way, to look more like a photo. While VQGAN+CLIP often gives you things like buildings in the sky or repeating pixel patterns, Clip Guided Diffusion does a better job of obeying the laws of physics when you run the encoder.
No coding required, and takes seconds to learn. Type a text prompt then set the algorithm parameters with a few clicks to create amazing AI images.
Create artworks from text using your desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. View and manage your images from anywhere.

Thank you for the amazing work. I'm LOVING it, specially now that I figured my "style".— u/DadHunter22 on Reddit
The art of asking
Take a look into the mind of a convolutional neural network. VQGAN is a generative adversarial neural network that can generate images. CLIP judges how well an image matches your prompt. Put them together, repeat a few hundred times, and the results can be incredible!
Create AI generated images in a few clicks. No code required to generate your art!
Type a text prompt, add some keyword modifiers, then click "Create."
...for a minute or two while the AI text-to-image algorithm works its magic.
Admire your artwork for a while, then do whatever you like with it. You can even sell your images!

The "how" is easy. Just enter any word or phrase you like into the AI algorithm - this is known as the text prompt. E.g., "A cow jumping over the moon." We have also provided you with a list of popular modifier keywords that will help influence the style of your art. E.g. "Abstract," "Trending on Artstation," and "Water Color" just to name a few. Modifiers are optional settings when using VQGAN and CLIP. When you click "Create," our AI will work its magic to produce an image that matches your text prompt.
New algorithms available on NightCafe only take a few seconds! Older algorithms like VQGAN+CLIP and CLIP-Guided Diffusion take between 1 and 30 minutes depending on how long you choose to run them for. VQGAN AI is a transformer that changes the text prompts into images, and a longer run time gives your images a better chance of properly forming.
NightCafe currently offers more text-to-image AI algorithms than anywhere. Stable Diffusion, DALL-E 2, CLIP-Guided Diffusion and VQGAN+CLIP are all currently available on NightCafe.
VQGAN and CLIP are two state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms that work together to create art from a text prompt. VQGAN is an image generator, and CLIP can judge how well the image matches your prompt. CLIP gives feedback to VQGAN on how to make the image more like the text prompt even without prior training. Run this process a few hundred times, and some incredible results emerge during the generation process!
VQGAN and CLIP work together to produce amazing results. By playing around with the settings, you can create images that never cease to amaze.
CLIP-Guided Diffusion is a text-to-image AI algorithm that combines two types of neural networks to generate images. "Diffusion" works by gradually training a neural network to reverse a process of adding "noise" (random pixels) to an image. Once trained, the neural network can generate new images from nothing but random noise. In CLIP-Guided Diffusion, CLIP is used to "guide" the diffusion process towards an image that matches a particular text prompt.
Disco Diffusion refers to a particular implementation of CLIP-Guided Diffusion, available on an online programming platform called "Google Colab." Programs on Google Colab are usually referred to as "notebooks." The Disco Diffusion notebook combines a lot of improvements that various developers have made to the original CLIP-Guided Diffusion algorithm and is able to produce some amazing results.
VQGAN is a machine-learning algorithm that can be used to generate images. VQGAN stands for Vector Quantized Generative Adversarial Network. "Vector Quantization" is a data-compression technique that allows a large set of data points to be represented by a much smaller set of groups. "Generative Adverserial Network" is a type of neural network architecture that pits two neural networks against each other - one network aims to generate realistic images, and the other network aims to discriminate between real and generated images. As they both get better at their defined task, the images that they generate become more realistic.
VQGAN+CLIP and CLIP-Guided Diffusion are both text-to-image AI algorithms. VQGAN+CLIP (referred to on NightCafe as "Artistic") came first. VQGAN and CLIP are very good at generating images with beautiful textures based on text prompts with lots of artistic keywords. If you are looking to generate abstract and creative images, VQGAN might be the best approach. CLIP-Guided Diffusion (referred to on NightCafe as "Coherent") came later and uses a different process for generating images (see "What is CLIP-Guided Diffusion" above) but still uses CLIP to guide the visual generation. Diffusion is better at composing images in a coherent way than VQGAN, and you're more likely to get realistic-looking results when you run the diffusion algorithm on your prompts.
You can use NightCafe Creator to generate unlimited base Stable Diffusion creations for free. A base generation is thumb resolution, short runtime and a single image. More powerful settings, or other algorithms like DALL-E 2, CLIP-Guided Diffusion or VQGAN+CLIP cost credits. Everyone gets a free credit-topup every day, and you can also earn credits by participating in the community. To create more images, you can purchase a credit pack or earn credits by participating in the community. No subscriptions are required when you generate images.
NightCafe Creator is a web-based image generation app. You won't find it on any app store, but you can install it and run it on the home screen of your iPhone, Android phone, or tablet. Once the image generation app is installed on your device, you can begin to create beautiful images from text.
The results may not be what you expect, but they're always interesting!
I input "a sexy muffin dripping with butter" into a text-to-image generator and the results are some of the most terrifying images I've ever seen.— Eric Decker on Twitter
