Prompts Guide

Prompts are incredibly important for Deft Imagine. As you play with the tool more, you’ll learn better ways to prompt it to get the desired outcome. Here are some of those strategies.

Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want

Your prompts are like guardrails. The less you provide, the more wild it will go. For example, if there is a brick fireplace in your uploaded photo that you don’t want to be changed, using “Lightly colored brick fireplace” is much better than “Don’t change the fireplace.” ​Describing what you want in the final image will protect the output.

Word Choice

Your choice of words matters! Instead of a “small chair,” use a “tiny brown dining chair.” The more specific, the better.

Make it more descriptive

Short prompts can work, but the less detail you give, the more the defaults will take over. See the example below.

The room features a bedroom with green walls, wooden floors, and a wooden ceiling with a brown exposed beam. The bed had a large black bench in front of it with two nightstands on either side. There are numerous books on the nightstands and a bookshelf behind the bed. The room is filled with various potted plants that line the walls and the floor. There is a couch on the left side of the room.

Use semicolons instead of commas

A weird quirk of AI is that it doesn’t like commas that much! If you have a really long prompt with commas, try separating some of those things with semicolons ; until we fix this.


The only difference is the “prompt”. You can see that the second one followed the guidelines more succinctly.
