  1. After separating the image from the grid, you will notice options to edit the image. For instance, in the screenshot above, you can see options like Upscale and Vary. Here is a quick summary for each, with an example:


The Upscale (Subtle) option can double the size of the selected image while keeping similar details to the original. Meanwhile, the Upscale (Creative) does the same but adds new information to the image. Here are images for reference:

Upscale - Subtle
Upscale - Creative


The Vary options help you to create variations of a generated image. While the variations done by Subtle or Strong modes go by their name, if you’re looking for control over the variations, prefer Vary (Region).
