Picking an AI

There are many different types of AI, and they each have different purposes. This guide will explain how to pick the right (open source) AI for what you’re doing.

Image generation AIs can create an image based on a text prompt input. Some also can use an image prompt too. There are many different factors in deciding which AI is best, some include speed, VRAM requirements, customizability, and accuracy (how close the image is to the input prompt).
