Where do I put the files? A guide to understanding the Stable Diffusion file structure.


If you're new to Stable Diffusion and the AUTOMATIC1111 Web UI, you may be wondering what to do with all these model files you can get on Civitai. Allow me to be your guide as I endeavor to clear that mystery up just a little bit.

Quick Guide

Base Models | File Type: .ckpt or .safetensors | Save To: \stable-diffusion-webui\models\Stable-diffusion

LoRA | File Type: .safetensors | Save To: \stable-diffusion-webui\models\Lora

LyCORIS | File Type: .safetensors |

  • A1111 version < 1.5 Save To: \stable-diffusion-webui\models\LyCORIS

  • A1111 version >= 1.5 Save To: \stable-diffusion-webui\models\Lora

Textual Inversion | File Type: .safetensors or .pt or .bin | Save To: \stable-diffusion-webui\embeddings

Upscaler | File Type: .pth | Save To: \stable-diffusion-webui\models\ESRGAN

VAE | File Type: .safetensors | Save To: \stable-diffusion-webui\models\VAE
