Advanced Guide for QR Code AI Art with Stable Diffusion
Create QR codes with advanced setting
In the advanced settings, you'll find additional options that can significantly elevate your QR code's design. Here, you have the opportunity to customize your QR codes in three various aspects: corner options, stable diffusion sampling steps, and stable diffusion models, offering a level of detail and precision beyond what's available in the beginner setup.
1) Corner options of QR Code
In the advanced settings, you can start by shaping the corners of your QR code. Using "Corner Square Options" and "Corner Dots Options," you can weave elements of your QR code into your design.
For example, with a prompt like "a puppy playing with a ball," these options could turn part of the QR code into the ball itself, seamlessly merging function with design.
Stable Diffusion Setting
The advanced setup includes the 'Stable Diffusion' setting, a key element for tailoring your QR code. Stable Diffusion with 'Control Net', serves as the foundation of our QR generator. Stable Diffusion' is an AI tool responsible for generating the image embedded in your QR code.
In the Advanced setting, you can choose a specific Stable Diffusion model and specify the number of steps that directly influence the appearance of the input image for your QR code.
2) Sampling Steps
If you don't want to stick to standard settings, I suggest starting to experiment with adjusting the sampling steps within the Stable Diffusion Settings immediately after creating your prompt. The optimal number of steps significantly influences the quality and stability of the generated QR code. Finding the best combination for each prompt, model, and URL can be tricky, as different numbers of sampling steps may work best. Discovering the optimal combination ensures that the QR code is readable and boasts the most attractive design.
What are Stable Diffusion sampling steps
Think of Stable Diffusion as a makeover for random noise to become a clear picture. The sampling steps decide how many times the model tweaks this noise. Each tweak makes the picture better, revealing more details. Having more tweaks doesn't always mean more details, but it can make the picture look more real. In the end, we get a clear picture that started from random noise, and it all stays organized and makes sense.

How to Find the Optimal Number of Sampling Steps
Various suggestions exist for setting the ideal number of sampler steps; it might also be a matter of personal taste for the desired result.
However, when we discuss sampling steps connected to creating QR codes, the number of steps becomes a very specific topic. The readability of the QR code comes into play, posing the question of how many steps are best for ideal balance.
In certain cases, our basic 20-step setup works best for a specific QR Code template. However, in my experience, 33 steps are often emerge as the sweet spot, seamlessly marrying functionality with design aesthetics.
It's worth noting that luck can also play a role. You may find yourself clicking the generate button four times with poor results, 'and on the fifth attempt, you could get two amazing-looking QR codes.' This scenario is a common aspect of the generation process and can manifest when one sporadically adjusts the number of sampler steps.
3) Stable Diffusion Models
Stable Diffusion models, a type of AI, generate unique images from text inputs. Developed by various creators, each model has distinct capabilities learned from a variety of images and their descriptions. Trained to understand the connection between words and visual elements, such as colors and shapes, these models offer diverse and unique interpretations of written descriptions, making them valuable for artistic creations and visualizing ideas.
In the process of creating QR codes, choosing the right model can have a significant impact on the result and efficiency of the QR code. Everything depends on the specific prompt and chosen settings and how they all come together.
