Intro Image

SDXL-Lightning is a text-to-image generation model that can produce high-quality 1024px images in just a few steps. It utilizes progressive adversarial diffusion distillation to achieve impressive results. The model is available in different configurations, including 1-step, 2-step, 4-step, and 8-step distilled models, each offering varying levels of generation quality. The full UNet models are noted for their superior quality, while LoRA models are suitable for other base models. Users are advised to select the appropriate checkpoint based on the desired inference steps for optimal performance

The SDXL-Lightning model is a text-to-image generation tool that can produce high-quality images from text prompts. To use the model, you can follow these steps:

  1. Visit the SDXL-Lightning playground hosted on, which is a demonstration platform for the model
  2. Once you’re on the playground, you can enter your desired text prompt in the provided text field.
  3. The model will generate an image based on your input prompt.
