🖍️ Scribble Diffusion

Scribble Diffusion is a free and open-source AI-powered web app that lets you draw a rough sketch, add a text prompt, and generate images based on your sketch. This can be an excellent way to:
  • Generate images for content you are creating (slideshows, documents, websites, etc.)
  • Generate images to serve as writing prompts or story starters for students.
  • Generate images to illustrate student writing, stories, poems, etc.

Here's how it works... 
  • Start by going to the Scribble Diffusion website at
  • Click on the "Clear" option to get a blank canvas.
  • Use your mouse to draw a simple sketch of what you want.

  • Next type in a text prompt describing what you want the picture to be.

  • Finally click the "Go" button.
  • The AI will now generate an image based off of your sketch and your text prompt.

  • If you want another version of the image, simple click the "Go" button again and the AI will generate a new picture.

  • If needed, you can edit the text for your prompt, or even edit your original sketch, and then click "Go" again to make an image based off of your adjusted prompt and/or sketch.

  • At any point, you can download or copy any of the generated images. 
  • Simply right click on the image and choose to save or copy the picture. 
  • You can then use the image any way you like.

💰 Pricing

Scribble Diffusion is free to use however you like!
