Simple prompt organization with dynamic prompts (no dynamics needed)

Simple prompt organization with dynamic prompts (no dynamics needed)

My prompts tend to get away from me, extensive in determination and detail, and their structure tended to vary wildly from one mini project to another. So I got organized. This was possible because I installed and enabled the Dynamic Prompts extension, which allows you to mark lines as comments, excluded from the actual prompt itself, only holding your notes.

For different aims I have different templates. For images that feature humans, I use the following, with examples for each section. The sections guide me to enter what's important, and I ignore or leave out line items for what's not important.

# POSITIVE CATEGORY : HUMANS

# SETUP: SHOOT, FOCUS, DETAIL, LIGHT

model shoot, crystal clear, intricate, sunlight,

# MODEL/PERSON

a gorgeous forty year old model,

# LOCATION / BACKGROUND

on the shore of the Isle of Man,

# GENRE

vacation,

# WEARING/CLOTHING: OUTFIT/DRESS, SHIRT, PANT/SHORTS/SKIRT, SHOES, HAT, OR NUDE

winter clothes, fur hat,

# VIEWING / LOOKING AT

looking at viewer,

# BODY ATTRIBUTES: SKIN TYPE N COLOR, BODY PARTS (NOSE...)

creamy skin,

# EYES : COLOR, LIDDED, EYE ENHANCEMENT

brown eyes,

# HAIR COLOR

{__hair_colors__},

# HAIR STYLE

ponytail,

# POSITION / ORIENTATION

sitting on a park bench,

# EXPRESSION

smirking,

# ACTIVITY

sticking her tongue out,

# EXTRAS

# ENHANCERS (OVERALL)

Highly organized, but if you also turn on the Dynamic Prompts setting for turning all whitespace into a single space each, it doesn't eat up your tokens, as this is what that template actually spills out:

model shoot, crystal clear, intricate, sunlight, a gorgeous forty year old model, on the shore of the Isle of Man, vacation, winter clothes, fur hat, looking at viewer, creamy skin, brown eyes, blonde, ponytail, sitting on a park bench, smirking, sticking her tongue out, <lora:wowifierV3:1.4>, <lyco:add_a_box_of_crazy_details>

...and this is also the cover image for the article. The template I use for artworks is a little stranger, with different sections. :)

I've also created an organization for my negative prompts. Most are incorporated into Automatic1111 styles now, but the exercise to organize was informative and will pay off immediately when I need to amend a negative prompt. Here's the template I use, with a few examples. With Dynamic Prompts enabled, I keep the # comment lines in.

# NEGATIVE CATEGORY : ART PAINTINGS / PGM

# TASK/PROJECT SPECIFIC

(leather helmet),

# QUALITY

(blurry:1.3),

# COMPOSITION and COLORS

monochrome, desaturated, face out of frame,

# DEFORMITY

extra heads,

# WATERMARKS

logo, signature,

# GENERAL EMBEDDINGS

bad-ears-mark-229,

I hope you find this technique as useful as I do.
