Summary of how to use 'AI Picasso' that allows you to quickly use image generation AI 'Stable Diffusion' on your smartphone, also supports 'img2img'
Stable Diffusion , an AI that outputs images in response to sentences such as ``bears playing in the forest'' and ``a family of cats sleeping in bed,'' is gaining great popularity because it can easily generate images that closely resemble the image. The application ' AI Picasso - Dream Art Studio (AI Picasso) ' that allows you to use such Stable Diffusion on your smartphone has been released, so I have summarized the installation procedure and how to use it.
'AI Picasso - Dream Art Studio' on the App Store
At the time of writing the article, only the iOS version of AI Picasso has been released, and the Android version is in preparation. This time, I will install the iOS version on my iPhone and use it.
First, access the App Storedistribution page and tap 'Get'.
When the authentication screen is displayed, perform authentication such as Touch ID or Face ID and continue the installation.
When installation is complete, tap 'Open'.

Saving is complete when 'Saved!' is displayed. Tap OK to close the dialog.
The image generated this time looks like this. The resolution is 512 x 512 pixels. I'm concerned that the area around the obi feels strange and that there is a credit-like pattern on the bottom right of the image, but considering that it was able to output just by specifying the text, the result is amazing.
If you want to generate a different image based on the same sentence, tap the update button at the bottom left of the screen.
After a while, another image will appear. A different image will be generated each time you tap the update button, but the old image will be deleted when a new image is generated, so be careful not to forget to save the image you like.

Next, enter the text in the input field and tap 'Create'. This time, I entered 'Anime style, cat'.
The output result is below. Roughly drawn features such as triangular ears, round eyes, mouth shape, and long whiskers are reflected.
If you want to specify an image already saved on your smartphone as a reference image, tap 'Photo Library'.
The first time, you will be asked for permission, so tap 'Allow access to all photos'.
Next, select the image you want to specify as the reference image.
