Startup Stability AI launches Stable Doodle service, which turns sketches into images, reports TechCrunch.

The service uses the latest Stable Diffusion model to analyze the contours of a sketch and create a “visually pleasing” artistic image of it. It is available through the ClipDrop platform.

“Stable Doodle is geared toward both professionals and novices, regardless of their familiarity with AI tools,” explains Stability AI. “With Stable Doodle, anyone with basic drawing skills and online access can generate high-quality original images in seconds.”

Stable Doodle is unique in that it allows for more precise control over image creation. The service is based on the Stable Diffusion model – Stable Diffusion XL – combined with a “conditional control solution” developed by one of Tencent’s research divisions, the Applied Research Center (ARC). This solution, called the T2I-Adapter, allows Stable Diffusion XL to accept sketches as input and manipulate the model to fine-tune the final result.

“T2I-Adapter enable[s] Stable Doodle to understand the outlines of sketches and generate images based on prompts combined with the outlines defined by the model,” Stability AI explains.

We will remind that previously Stability AI raised $25 million with the help of convertible bonds, as a result of which the total amount of funds raised exceeded $125 million.
