AI art is getting increasingly popular. Despite its visual aspect, there are not many options for how you can utilize it. An excellent new technique of generating AI art might be helpful for brand communication or even merch production - a new way to utilize QR codes. Let’s learn how to generate AI art with a readable QR code!
1. Download and install Stable Diffusion WebUI
As you have installed the WebUI, go to the “extensions tabs” and then to the “available” tab. Find “ControlNet,” click “install,” and then restart your WebUI.
An alternative extension install method is to install from the URL:
Download the tile ControlNet model
Download the brightness ControlNet model
We won't use AI to generate a QR code, but we will use an existing one as an input image. There are many free websites. I am using the DNSCHECKER, and you can use any site you prefer. Choose "error correction level:L" and image size 250x250 and download the generated image.

ugly, disfigured, low quality, blurry, nsfw
Make sure to check with different sizes on the screen. Some tend to have issues when they are large. You won’t get a functional QR Code with every single image. The success rate is about one in four. Generate more images and check for the keepers.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to make AI art with a readable QR code with Stable Diffusion WebUI. You can play around with the ControlNet settings to manipulate results according to the prompt, reducing or increasing the control weights. This process works better with smaller QR codes and high fault tolerance. It might take some tries to generate the right image.
