Words of Power: The Essential Cheat Sheet for Super Prompts Techniques

Mastering the art of prompting can be a game-changer. This comprehensive guide serves as a toolkit to enhance your image prompting skills. Leveraging power words, super prompts, and strategically curated techniques, this handbook provides a foundational blueprint for creating prompts that yield phenomenal results.

Some of these prompts may already be embedded in your AI model, so we recommend trying these out to gauge their effectiveness. As the models continue to improve and evolve, so does the landscape of effective prompting. Hence, this guide is not intended to be a rigid formula, but a dynamic starting point that aligns with the fluidity of this innovative field.

Words of Power: The Essential Cheat Sheet for Super Prompts Techniques

Keep it Simple at First

It’s often beneficial to start off with smaller, concise prompts to establish a baseline. This allows you to get a sense of the types of images your AI is currently producing. From there, you can progressively build upon your prompts, adding more detail and specificity to fine-tune the output. When prompt engineering, it’s essential to maintain the image seed constant. This approach ensures you’re only altering one variable at a time – the prompt – allowing for a clean split test to evaluate what works best and what might require further refinement.

Remember, the effectiveness of a prompt doesn’t necessarily correlate with its length or complexity. Sometimes, the simplest prompts yield the most powerful results. The key is to test, evaluate, and iteratively refine your prompts.

Moving forward, we’ll be zooming in on fine-tuning diffusion models to streamline your prompting experience. If we venture into other models, rest assured, we’ll keep you in the loop. If you have any models you’d like us to experiment with, feel free to share. Together, we can navigate the exciting terrain of image prompting, exploring the vast possibilities of AI-driven creativity!

What is a Super Prompt?

A Super Prompt is a power-packed word or phrase that you can incorporate into nearly every image prompt to significantly enhance the final result. These are common terms that can instantly uplift the quality, details, and overall appeal of the generated image.

These super prompts may not work with all models, particularly the more modern ones, as they might have these prompts already embedded. Nonetheless, experimenting with one or more of these Super Prompts can potentially yield better outputs if such qualities are not inherently present.

In the following sections, we’ll delve deeper into embeddings and negative embeddings, their applications, and how you can utilize them to optimize your prompting process.

Embeddings, including negative ones, are powerful tools for influencing the generation of images in AI models. They function as markers or guides that help the model understand the specific characteristics or attributes you desire in your image.

For instance, you can have a ‘toy cat’ embedding that tells the model you want a representation of a toy cat. Similarly, negative embeddings, like ‘bad-artist’ or ‘bad hands’, tell the model to avoid certain qualities, such as poorly drawn figures or anatomically incorrect hands.

You can think of embeddings as adding details to a recipe. Just like you would add instructions like “no garlic” or “extra cheese” to personalize a dish, you can use embeddings to customize your image generation.

BadDream is good for dreamshaper style stuff, while UnrealisticDream is more suited for realistic images, but it’s not standalone. You should use it together with BadDream or with other negative words. These can be combined with, Fast Negative Embedding (+ FastNegativeV2)

Using Embeddings to Save Time

One of the key advantages of using embeddings is that they can save a lot of time. Instead of typing out a full description every time you want to generate an image, you can use an embedding. It’s a bit like using a shortcut or a code for a specific instruction or set of instructions.

The best part is that once you have created an embedding, you can save it and use it again whenever you need it. So, if you find yourself often generating images with specific characteristics, creating and using embeddings can make your work much more efficient.

For your convenience, we will provide a list of commonly used prompts and negative prompts below. This list can serve as a useful reference, helping you to get started with using embeddings to generate fantastic images!

These are the most commonly used prompts that does magic to your image generations that I call “Super Prompts.”

Learn the ins and outs of Stable Diffusion Prompt Weights for Automatic1111. I’ll be sharing my findings, breaking down complex concepts into easy-to-understand language, and providing practical examples along the way.


To wrap it up, the power and beauty of prompting is limited only by your imagination and creativity. Whether you’re diving into the basics of prompting, enhancing your skills with super prompts, or venturing into the advanced territory of embeddings and negative embeddings, this guide is designed to take you through every step of the journey.

Remember, there’s no “one size fits all” in this rapidly evolving landscape. With the continual improvements and evolution in AI models, we encourage you to experiment with prompts and negative prompts, to make each image better and more efficient. Start small, gauge the results, and gradually build on that foundation. Retain the same image seed when prompt engineering, to effectively split test what works best for you.

And finally, don’t forget the importance of time-efficiency. Make full use of embeddings as preset groups, which you can reuse over time, making the process of prompt engineering faster and easier.

This is just the beginning. As you traverse through the world of AI and image prompting, keep experimenting, learning, and above all, have fun. After all, the journey is just as important as the destination.

Until next time, keep prompting!
