Training ChatGPT for Prompt Generation

If you like what I do, buy Stoke a brew

PROBLEM: The well of inspiration runneth dry

REACTION: Resort to same subject/style/(insert inspiration vampire here) tired old prompts

SOLUTION: Fire up ChatGPT to get inspired like you never thought possible.

We've all been there. Out of inspiration so generating endless images of your white Jack Russell terrier (Minnie) wearing a suit of armour, fighting in WWI, as a cyborg, etc. We've all been there? Right? ...whispers hopefully not just me...

Once we have a list of prompts we can set them up and go do something else for a while, come back and be amazed at what has been generated. That's the way we imagine it anyway, but after a while the prompts don't come as easy and plentiful as they used to.

Step forth ChatGPT. Just constantly nudge and remind it what you are after and you may just be amazed at what comes out. I have started a ChatGPT conversation from scratch to show you the process at it's simplest. Just make sure not to delete your conversation (remember you can rename them now) and the more you work with it the better the results get.

You can usually get 15 prompts out in one generation, but i just prefer the number 20 so have to press 'continue generating' now and again.

Below is a link to the ChatGPT conversation if you want to read it over there, the full transcript will be pasted below that link if you would prefer to stay here and read it. Thanks to artistabrunoofc935 and Anomaly_Diffusion for nudging me to get this done (as this is the first I have written on CivitAI, but gotta say I am liking this site and community more and more).

PASTED TRANSCRIPT OF CONVERSATION

User

I would like some help with inspiration in regard to prompting text2image ai generation software like stablediffusion, dall-e, etc. Are you aware of these types of software and if that is the case could you give me an example of a prompt to create a landscape image please?

ChatGPT

Yes, I'm familiar with text-to-image generation software like DALL-E and StableDiffusion. These models can generate images based on textual prompts. Here's an example of a prompt you can use to generate a landscape image:

"Generate a serene landscape with rolling green hills, a calm lake in the foreground, and a vibrant sunset sky. Include a couple of tall, slender trees on the left side of the image, and a small wooden cabin nestled among the hills. The atmosphere should evoke a sense of tranquility and peace."

Feel free to modify or expand upon this prompt according to your specific requirements or preferences. The more detailed and specific the prompt, the better the chances of getting an image that matches your desired vision.

User

With your help I would like to develop a specific style of prompt mainly for use with StableDiffusion. We will refer to this style of prompting (from henceforth) as HiQualPrompts (although when i am feeling lazy all lowercase means the same: hiqualprompts).

HiQualPrompts are to be constructed with the subject at the start (be as descriptive as you like), then the style (oil painting, sketch, illustration, photograph, etc), then an example of an artist/photographer/sculptor/architect/etc appropriate for then chosen style (more than one artist/etc can be used: by Roger Dean and by Moebius), then we can have (if needed, as sometimes this part can be of less importance than others) an over all feeling of the image or the lens and aperture used (dramatic overtones, 28mm lens @f/1.2), then last we have tags to help with the quality of the image (hi-res, 8K, getty images, pixelated, sharply focused, hyperfocal, etc). And that is our finished prompt. I will provide samples soon, but first I want to know what you would refer to the parts of the prompt as to see if we are on the as me page as each other.

Reply like this:

The parts of a HiQualPrompt are:

how you would refer to part 1 goes here

how you would refer to part 2 goes here

how you would refer to part 3 goes here

etc, etc, etc

ChatGPT

Certainly! Here's how I would refer to the different parts of a HiQualPrompt:

Subject: The descriptive portion at the start of the prompt that outlines the main elements or theme of the image.

Style: The desired artistic style or medium in which the image should be generated (e.g., oil painting, sketch, illustration, photograph, etc.).

Artists/Photographers/etc.: Mentioning specific artists, photographers, sculptors, architects, or other creative individuals whose work exemplifies the chosen style.

Mood/Lens/Aperture: This optional part describes the overall feeling or atmosphere of the image, or specific technical details related to the photography aspect, such as the lens and aperture settings.

Image Quality Tags: Additional tags or descriptors that specify the desired quality or characteristics of the image (e.g., hi-res, 8K, Getty Images, pixelated, sharply focused, hyperfocal, etc.).

These parts together form a HiQualPrompt, allowing for a structured and detailed approach to generating specific images.

User

one word to describe this: Mood/Lens/Aperture

ChatGPT

One word to describe the "Mood/Lens/Aperture" part of the HiQualPrompt could be "Aesthetic." This term encompasses the overall visual and emotional tone of the image, as well as any specific technical details related to the lens and aperture settings.

User

again one word please: Artists/Photographers/etc

ChatGPT

"References"

User

Excellent. So from now on we will have QualPrompts and HiQualPrompts.

A QualPrompt consists of:

Subject, Style, References (preferred however not essential), Quality.

A HiQualPrompt consists of:

Subject, Style, References, Aesthetic, Quality - all parts of a hiqualprompt are essential.

Would you prefer me to give some examples or are you feeling confident enough to give me your first HiQualPrompt? If you are I would like it to include a man with a beard.

ChatGPT

I'm confident enough to provide you with a HiQualPrompt. Here it is:

Subject: An adventurous man with a well-groomed beard exploring a misty forest.

Style: Oil painting.

References: Inspired by the works of Ivan Shishkin and Caspar David Friedrich.

Aesthetic: Enveloped in a sense of mystery and tranquility, with a soft and diffused lighting capturing the ethereal atmosphere of the forest.

Quality: High-resolution image suitable for large-scale printing and display.

Feel free to modify any part of the prompt according to your preferences or requirements.

User

Excellent. Each part has plenty of info. However I would like them to be formatted in a style that StableDiffusion would like better.

Your prompt output:

Subject: An adventurous man with a well-groomed beard exploring a misty forest.

Style: Oil painting.

References: Inspired by the works of Ivan Shishkin and Caspar David Friedrich.

Aesthetic: Enveloped in a sense of mystery and tranquility, with a soft and diffused lighting capturing the ethereal atmosphere of the forest.

Quality: High-resolution image suitable for large-scale printing and display.

StableDiffusion preferred prompt format (also QualPrompt and HiQualPrompt essential format):

An adventurous man with a well-groomed beard exploring a misty forest, oil painting, by Ivan Shishkin and by Caspar David Friedrich, Enveloped in a sense of mystery and tranquility, soft and diffused lighting, ethereal atmosphere, high resolution, large-scale print, for display.

ChatGPT

Certainly! Here's the same HiQualPrompt formatted in a way that StableDiffusion would prefer:

An adventurous man with a well-groomed beard exploring a misty forest, oil painting, by Ivan Shishkin and by Caspar David Friedrich, enveloped in a sense of mystery and tranquility, soft and diffused lighting capturing the ethereal atmosphere, high resolution, suitable for large-scale printing and display.

This format condenses the information while still maintaining all the essential components of the HiQualPrompt.
