Stability AI’s Stable Diffusion XL 1.0 (SDXL 1.0) foundation model is now generally available on-demand in Amazon Bedrock. SDXL 1.0 is the most advanced development in the Stable Diffusion text-to-image suite of models launched by Stability AI. The model generates images of high quality in virtually any art style and it excels at photorealism. Amazon Bedrock is a fully managed service that offers a choice of high-performing foundation models from leading AI companies, like Stability AI, along with a broad set of capabilities that provide you with the easiest way to build and scale generative AI applications with foundation models.

SDXL 1.0 is the flagship image model from Stability AI and requires only a few words to create complex, detailed, and aesthetically pleasing images. Distinct images can be prompted without having any particular ‘feel’ imparted by the model, ensuring absolute freedom of style. SDXL 1.0 is particularly well-tuned for vibrant and accurate colors, with better contrast, lighting, and shadows than its SDXL 0.8 predecessor, all in native 1024x1024 resolution. In addition, SDXL can generate concepts that are notoriously difficult for image models to render, such as hands and text or spatially arranged compositions (e.g., a woman in the background chasing a dog in the foreground).

Stability AI’s SDXL 1.0 model in Amazon Bedrock is available in the US East (N. Virginia) and US West (Oregon) AWS Regions. To learn more, read the Stable Diffusion XL on Amazon Bedrock product page and documentation. To get started with SDXL 1.0 in Amazon Bedrock, visit the Amazon Bedrock console.
