How to use the Stable Doodle sketch-to-image AI tool

12:01 AM July 18, 2023

Popular AI image generator Stable Diffusion launched another tool called Stable Doodle. The website says it “transforms your doodles into real images in seconds.” For example, you can turn a poorly-drawn dog into an adorable detailed canine. Also, it could be a fun toy for turning your kids’ sketches into realistic illustrations.

Artificial intelligence makes art more accessible by letting people with little to no skills draw beautiful pictures. Moreover, it could handle mundane, repetitive tasks for artists to facilitate their work.

Everyone should understand tools like Stable Doodle to maximize their benefits in daily life. This article will discuss using Stable Diffusion and explain how the AI tool works. Later, I will explain how this program could significantly improve AI image generators.

The best part about this tool is it is super easy to use. Like ChatGPT, it lets you use the program for free and pay a monthly subscription for extra features. Here’s how easy Stable Doodle is:

  1. Go to
  2. Next, draw on the white box by pressing the left mouse button and dragging it.
  3. Afterward, click the No Style button to choose a visual theme or ignore it.
  4. Then, describe what you want your doodle to look like.
  5. Click the Generate button.
  6. Wait until the website loads three versions of your request.
  7. Click one to download a high-quality version.

The free version severely limits how often you can use the program and how large your images are. Conversely, the Pro version removes these restrictions for $7 monthly. The owner, Stability AI, explained its objectives to TechCrunch:

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

Nowadays, many sketch-to-image AI tools like ad-supported apps and open-source projects exist. Yet, Doodle stands above the rest because it enables more “precise” control over image generation.

It uses the Stable Diffusion XL AI model and a “conditional control solution” from one of Tencent’s R&D departments, the Applied Research Center (ARC). The latter is T2I-Adapter enables Stable aI to accept sketches as inputs.

The ARC also enhances fine-tuning of output artworks. “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 explained.

How could it affect AI image generation?

The progress of generative AI has been blindingly quick. ChatGPT is barely a year old, but it already changed how people perform daily tasks. People became amazed at how image generators like DALL-E can create accurate and aesthetically-pleasing images from text.

Later, Midjourney reversed the process with an image-to-text program. Text-to-image conversion is convenient, but it can be finicky. Sometimes, you may require numerous trials and errors to produce specific results.

You may need to rewrite your text prompts to get what you want. Stable Doodle makes that service more convenient by letting you submit rough sketches. Stability AI shared this explanation with Lifewire:

“The Stable Doodle tool has the potential to democratize AI image generation by making it more accessible to a wider audience. With text prompts, users were often limited by the language barrier and struggled to precisely articulate their desired image.”

“Sketching a doodle, on the other hand, taps into human intuition and creative expression, bridging the gap between individuals and AI algorithms, tech adviser Jeff “Fuzzy” Wenzel told the publication.

This technology could radically boost productivity for artists. For example, you can train an AI model on your content to generate a storyboard for your next manhwa or Korean comic book.

A rough draft of a storyboard lets artists plan scenes for comic book pages. Then, the artists could place the finishing touches. As a result, artists boost efficiency while maintaining their livelihoods.


Stability AI launched a new artificial intelligence program called Stable Doodle. It lets users create realistic images from crude scribbles, making text-to-image tools more accessible.

It could become an essential tool for artists as AI becomes more popular worldwide. However, nations must find ways to protect their intellectual property and livelihoods.

These regulations would allow artists to receive proper compensation for their passions. Learn more about the latest digital tips and trends at Inquirer Tech.
