Point you’ll be presented with four Options decide which one you like best And fits well within the context of your Image keep repeating this process and Extend your images in the directions Where you want to see more detail in my Case that is upwards and then to the Right if none of the generated images Are to your liking you can always click Cancel and rerun your prompts but keep In mind that each generation costs one Credit and you start with 53 credits for A new account This generation that I’m currently Performing on the screen didn’t fit the Larger context of the image at all you Can see that the cyan color featured Right above the generation box just cuts Off randomly this happened because I Didn’t overlap the top of the generation Box with the Scion collar so Dali had no References as to the color existing you Can see my new generation box included The cyan color so Dali was aware of its Existence and produced more fitting Variations unfortunately that did cost Me an extra variation to fill the bottom Right corner but the results were much Better So what are the end results in terms of Image size you can see my image went From 2304 by 1536 to 2816 by 2048 which Is great because the image increased by About 10 to 15 percent in size without

Sacrificing the quality a few points of Consideration and the downsides of using This method is that at times like in This example if you pay close attention You can spot small differences in the Color of the original mid-journey image And the Dali generated frames this is Not always the case and is less Prominent with brighter colors you can Observe this by looking at the brighter Areas at the top and compare those to The darker areas on the right side Another interesting use of the outbating Tool is to generate highly detailed Character portraits with mid-journey and Then out paint the backgrounds like I’ve Done here this allows my journey to Create detailed character portraits Because the character it takes up most Of your canvas unlike in our previous Example here there are no prominent Lines showing color inconsistencies Again this is due to The Brighter colors Of this composition but another thing Becomes apparent Dali is not as detailed In out painting as mid-journey is in its Image generation as you can see based on The left side of our composition where It looks a lot more painterly and loose Compared to the background in our Original image on the right side before The final tip if you found this useful Please like And subscribe as it helps The channel a lot if you use my journey

For extending a character portray try to Have your character centered as Dali Won’t be able to correctly replicate and Complete your character design and the Outbanking area will be extremely Obvious as you can see here this is why I was forced to extend my image only to The left side where the border of the Image it’s only the background and not The character itself I hope you have a Fantastic day and I’ll see you in the Next one
