How to Create Gorgeous Viral QR Code Art Using Stable Diffusion (...Even If You Don't Have a PC or High-Performance GPU)
Plus—how to install Stable Diffusion (and ControlNet): the two most buzzy open-source (that is, free) and largely uncensored art diffusion models out there.
Stable Diffusion is the most controversial, most disruptive, deep learning text-to-image model to ever exist.
To download it is to be stunned by it.
I’m going to show you how to get it working on your computer—or, if your computer’s processor isn’t up to snuff I’ll take you through the process of how to run it on a virtual machine with the first 15 minutes free. (With a video tutorial that shows me generating the QR codes using that free trial—and it working!) And I have a brand new, free application for running Stable Diffusion on your PC that just dropped that doesn’t involve any downloading of Python or Git if want to try that, too.
There are endless tutorials out there. Some of them work. Some don’t. Let me save you the hours and the headaches to show you how to go beyond saying “that’s pretty cool” to actually creating your very own QR art masterpiece—that directs right to the website of your own design.
Let’s get QRacking!
