Your Editing Workflow will never be the same again
This software speeds up the work of designers like a turbocharger.
Definitely a great tool for Outpainting.
This is by far the best solution out there for Stable Diffusion at this time.
+++ Good news: Photoshop 24.3 solves compatibily issue. Please upgrade Photoshop. +++ Biggest update ever ahead - check news on Twitter +++

Best overall Stable Diffusion experience with best Outpainting, great Inpainting and CLIP Guidance. Needs local installation on Windows or Linux PC.
Highest resolution and better overall image quality using text to image. It is Cloud based so Mac user can use it.
Popular community server. Might be useful for some special scenerious. Great Inpainting. Needs local installation.
Fall-back if there is no other option available. It does not reach quality of the others at the moment. But we expect huge improments here in the future.
You can use this plugin now with DALL-E 2 without installing a server (e.g. Mac users)
On the server side (which can be your own Windows PC running Photoshop as well) you need to run this server here: You can download and install this server and try some prompts in the web interface. If that runs you are ready to go with the Plugin. A decent NVidia graphics card is also required for a local installation of Gyre or Automatic1111.
Photoshop v23.5 or higher (not 23 or lower). It will run on any computer or operating system which supports the required version of Photoshop (Windows 10, MacOS, Apple Silicon, etc are all fine). For M1 Mac please activate "M1 Fix" in configuration.
We recommend at last 6GB and it has to be from NVIDIA only, 2600 or better. 1000er series is really slow and breaks artistic workflow too much in our opinion - better use a cloud server in that case. Server part does not run on any Mac. For higher resolution than 512x512 (e.g. 1024x1024) you need more GPU memory (e.g. a 3090).
For the normal Photoshop user - not really into this kind AI before -in daily business the workflow will change a lot:
1. Instead of searching for stock images, just user Text-To-Image AI
2. Instead of using Photoshop Content-Aware Fill - use Inpainting
3. If Image has to be in a spesific format/size just use Outpainting to enlarge it
4. For more artistic illustrations use Image-To-Image or specific style by using Text-To-Image
5. Instead of doing (little) correction by a brush, just use Inpainting
6. Instead of searching an object in a stock database and prepare it for adding to a scene just use Inpainting
For the advanced AI user knowing all kind of AI already this is also a huge change:
1. Instead of switching between different AI tools just use mainly this one
2. Instead of struggling with limitations of over-complicated web frontends just use the full power of Photoshop with layers, grouping, selection,...
3. Use this tool for correction of faces or hands from another AI like Midjourney V4
Sure get DALL-E 2 or a Dreamstudio account: https://beta.dreamstudio.ai/home That StabilityAI cloud version does not have the nice features from local server installation yet (see comparison table below). DALL-E 2 is very powerful with its own features. Warning: StabilityAI rewrites API at the moment from GRPC to REST so it doesn't work very well right now! Update: we will publish instructions to set up your own server in cloud very soon.
For image generation using "text to image" it offers special features like HiResFix, Tiling, or Face restoration. But it does not offer Clip Guidance and Outpainting quality is much worse than Gyre (former grpcServer). At Automatic1111 just Latent Noise will be used for Outpainting in combination with the Runway 1.5 Inpainting model. The MK2 Outpainting script of A1111 is not part of the API. Gyre on the other hand offers MK3 in combination with the Runway 1.5 Inpainting model and also Clip Guidance. Inpainting operations deliver similar results. So our recommendation which server to use is clearly Gyre but A1111 can be used additionally because the plugin supports multiple connectors.
Unlike our other products, flying dog for Stable Diffusion is sold directly through Adobe's marketplace. As such, it is subject to their terms and conditions, and you would need to contact Adobe Support for issues relating to the purchase itself at email@example.com (Of course we happy to provide the same technical support as always for the installed product). If the Adobe support can not help you in a refund situation, please contact our support anyway.
The plugin ships with connectors to four different server. This table will be updated with each version. Things are constantly changing on a weekly basis.

* only community support on our Discord. We cannot provide full support for this kind of server because it changes very often and so it could break and not work. Another reason: the installation is more complicated.
