Introduction to Stable Diffusion for Developers & Designers

Learn how to create new images using Stable Diffusion and Python programming language
Pattern figure


There are several available tools for this purpose and one of the most used is Stable Diffusion developed by Stability AI. It is Open Source, has great usability, and speed, and can generate high-quality images. As it is open source, developers have created many extensions that can generate an infinite variety of images in the most different styles. In this course, you will learn everything you need to know to create new images using Stable Diffusion and Python programming language.

Why this

In this course, you will learn:
  • Understand the basics of Stable Diffusion to create new images
  • Learn how to use Stable Diffusion parameters to get different results
  • Create images using other models provided by the Open-Source community
  • Learn about Prompt Engineering to choose the best keywords to generate the best images
  • How to use negative prompts to indicate what should not appear in the images
  • Use fine-tuning to create your custom model to generate your images
  • Send initial images to condition image generation
  • Use inpainting to edit images, remove unwanted elements, or swap objects

Programming logic and Python basics are desirable but not required


Generative AI is a subset of AI that focuses on understanding patterns and structure in data and then using that to create more data like it.

Until now, machines couldn’t exhibit behavior that was indistinguishable from human responses. Generative AI has made that possible. In a world that operates on the principle of ‘Survival of the Fittest’, embracing Generative AI could be the edge you need to boost your productivity, improve operations, be more reliable and consistent, and do so much more.


Yes, absolutely! The Introduction to Stable Diffusion for Developers & Designers online course is a virtual, instructor-led program so you can enroll and learn from anywhere.

This course is designed to be highly hands-on for all learners. Roughly 70% of this course would be hands-on practical training while 30% would be theoretical studies.

Yes! There will be a pre- and post-assessment for every module during this Stable Diffusion online training course.
