## ⠀⠀⠀⠀**A test of the best known PONY checkpoints.**

⠀

**⠀****As the Creator of High-Quality LoRAs, I also pay close attention to appropriate Checkpoints**

⠀

⠀

⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀**Update 24.08.24** - *European date format - dd/mm/yy*

⠀

Some newer versions of pony Checkpoints have been added to the list.

⠀

Unfortunately, I had to part with other Checkpoints that were not good enough in my eyes. Reasons for this are often. Prompt accuracy, bad faces which is especially noticeable when upscaling, the tendency to overdraw and compatibility with many LoRAs. Since I don't do anything with comics, all but a few of these checkpoints have been removed regardless of their quality!

⠀

⠀

⠀

⠀

⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀**Update 11.07.24** - *European date format - dd/mm/yy*

⠀

42 new tests added plus 4 new Checkpoints.

⠀

The Survey showed that ⍃ dpmpp_3m_sde_gpu + normal ⍄ was desired as a Test,

but with only 12 votes it was not very meaningful and, as you can see from the Test, unfortunately a bad choice.

⠀

The whole Article has now been shortened to the

*CFG vs Steps vs Sampler*tests as these Cover everything that is included in the other Tests. If you are interested you can still find all the old tests in**my Archive**.

⠀

⠀

⠀

⠀

⠀

**General Test of all Checkpoints**

⠀

General Test of all Checkpoints with 4 different seeds and this several times with smaller CFG and step values because only very few use the high quality but also very time-consuming settings like I do.

⠀

Here is the first example to show, the others are then only linked.

**Flux Comparison**

This is what the same Prompt looks like with **Flux Pro**. You can see immediately that many prompts are completely ignored no matter how good the result is ♥

Flux only creates exactly what you want with a lot of luck!

Checkpoint: **Flux** **Pro**, Steps: 50, CFG, 5

⠀

⠀

⠀

**>>> Testpicture 1 <<<**

simple quality settings therefore also very quick to create. i personally only use this to test a prompt but for many it is standard. A somewhat heavier concept, especially crossed legs, often leads to errors.

⠀

⠀

⠀

**>>> Testpicture 2 <<<**

just like the Testpicture 1 only slightly increased quality settings chosen. with a extrem super easy to create portrait photo concept.

⠀

⠀

⠀

**>>> Testpicture 3 <<<**

High quality settings chosen for generating even if it takes at least twice as long!

*how many hours is that?*

In addition, this time the concept is deliberately very difficult, which inevitably leads to errors. But this shows all the better what the checkpoints can do with it!

With the Flux Comparison picture I only got 2 pieces showing the legs after 50 attempts. Camera angle, position and reflections are impossible to get right. Flux is nowhere near as Prompt accurate as people like to claim!

⠀

⠀

*Do I have to mention that for test purposes, of course, no upscaling, no LoRA, no ControlNet or In/Outpainting is used?*

⠀

What is clearly noticeable in this test is that at very **low CFG** settings the **light**, **shadows **and any **gloss effects** are not really present or look very weak in comparison.

⠀

If you want pictures that look like amateur shots, this is your setting, otherwise clearly not.

⠀

At ⍃ dpmpp_3m_sde + exponential ⍄ you can now see very clearly that errors quickly occur at high CFG values. **BUT these disappear** again at **high step values**, which many do not want to believe!

⠀

(of course the Lady **doesn't look anatomically correct** everywhere, but that's normal when you use the same seed for all checkpoints. What looks very good at one checkpoint is a nightmare at another. So never pay attention to the anatomy but to the details such as the lights, for example.)

⠀

⠀

**Positive Prompt:**

score_9, score_8_up, score_7_up,

a realistic photo of a mature milf, detailed face, detailed eyes, medium breasts, body freckles, beauty marks, (oiled skin:0.9),

big hair, long brunette curly hair, (slightly blonde hair highlights:0.9), burgundy nail polish, long fingernails, detailed fingernails, best hand,

she kneeling, (female masturbation:1.2), (pussy juice:0.9), shaved vagina,

glossy off shoulder one piece pattern swimsuit, cleavage, bracelet, tiny necklace,

outdoor, (dappled sunlight:1.2), pillows, patio, tree, flowers, plants, wooden floor, clouds, hills, foliage picnic blanket, picnic,

low angle, stunning photorealistic background, detailed shadows,

⠀

⠀

**Negative Prompt:**

score_3_up, score_4_up, score_5_up,

⠀

⠀

**Metadata:**

Steps: 50 - 150, Sampler: euler_ancestral, CFG scale: 5 - 25, Seed: 3338496265, Size: 1472x1280, VAE hash: 235745af8d, VAE: sdxl_vae, "", Version: ComfyUI, Hashes: {"model": "8933475d0a", "vae": "235745af8d"}⠀⠀

**Interesting BUG**

⠀

Sometimes there are problems with the generation of images when **Adobe Photoshop** is open.👇

⠀

⠀

⠀

This is what it looks like for me when I close Photoshop! 👇

⠀

It only gets worse when I open **Adobe Premiere Pro**. Even if no project is loaded, almost nothing generating works then now. With **Davinci Reslove **this does not happen!

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get around this?

⠀

It can't be the RAM and CPU, for example. I have 64GB RAM and only 20 GB of it is in use and the CPU works at 25% on average
