Stable Diffusion 2.0: No more spaghetti hands, just better AI-generated images

Stability AI, the creator of the popular prompt-based AI image generator Stable Diffusion, has announced its latest version, SDXL 0.9, which promises to deliver significantly more photorealistic images and improved hand rendering. The announcement, although briefly featured in a now-deleted blog post, has been reported by Bloomberg, generating excitement among AI enthusiasts and creators.

According to Stability AI, SDXL 0.9 represents a remarkable leap in creative possibilities for generative AI imagery. Sample images showcased in the blog post demonstrate the notable advancements achieved when comparing the same prompts in the previous beta version, Stable Diffusion XL, and the new SDXL 0.9. The images generated using the latest model exhibit finer details and more convincing hand representations, a significant improvement from earlier iterations. Hands, which were often a telltale sign of AI-generated art, have become increasingly realistic, particularly with the emergence of Midjourney v5, a competing platform running on Discord, launched earlier this year.
