Important: VAE is already baked in.
This is a Merge model of many of my favorite realistic SDXL Models (and some more artistic models put in for style and consistency) and I really like the output it makes.
Version 8: I have merged with some models newer models, tried to work on skin texture (but it is still not where I want it to be) and increasing the background details in images.
Version 7: I have merged with some models that claim to have improved Prompt Adherence (you still needs some cherry-picking of images, it is no Dalle.3) and some other new models with styles I liked the look of.
Version 6 has better/more detailed backgrounds and higher image contrast as well as some better NSFW capabilities. It also seems to give a wider variety of poses and image variations.
Version 5 has been merged with a few different SDXL eye Improvement Loras and several NSFW Loras. then merged back with older versions of the model and some Anime and Artistic models to bring back the artistic capabilities.
Version 4 incorporates newer released flexible models and seems to improve composition, skin texture, and artistic styles.
Version 3 incorporates hassansdxl_v10 NSFW model at a low 0.15.
And improves NSFW generations without affecting (probably Improving) overall consistency and artistic flare.
Version 2 incorporates
Colossus Project XL
and improves skin texture and overall composition.
Version 1 is a Merge of:
It is quite good at NSWF , prompting (boobs out) (naked) will usually be enough, but can be improved with the https://civitai.com/models/117603/finenude
Lora to add better detail.
Finally, a few recommendations for the settings:
Sampler: I like the Heun Sampler but it is slower than most.
CFG: 6-7 (Often use CFG 7 but 6 can look a bit pleasing/natural for photo-realistic images.)
Including: "35mm photograph, film, bokeh, professional, 4k, highly detailed" gives very good skin details in portraits.
I like to put the token (Bokeh) In the negative prompt to remove some blurring and improve the image.
Most of my sample Images have used the SXDL Styles Selector on the Photographic prompt injection setting.
I like to give all my output images at least a 2x upscale with img2img with high steps and a 0.15 - 0.6 Denoising strength.
Some times I the do a 4K upscale with Ultimate tiled upscale script extension.
