How do I start using the Image Generator tool?
First, select which type of image you want to create: Concept art, gameplay examples, icons or headers (feature graphics).
Then, input keywords, phrases, or game titles in the input box.
You can provide additional inputs in the filters section, which will help you achieve a certain look if you want. See the question below for further details.
Have fun, experiment, and remember to save the results you like to your "Favorites" by clicking "Add To Favorites" on the top right of an image.
What are the different image generation modes?
Art: Game concept art or other artistic creations in general.
Gameplay: Create images that depict gameplay, that is, images similar to game screenshots.
Icons: Game icons with 1:1 format, similar to the ones found in App Store or Play Store.
Header: Game header with 2:1 format, similar to the ones found in Play Store.
What kind of inputs can I provide?
You can provide any combination of keywords, existing games, game mechanics, themes, etc. You can be vague if you are looking for inspiration or very specific if you are trying to create a specific image (in this case, make sure that the Creative Mode is disabled).
Make sure to first select the generation mode and any applicable filters (see below).
Here are some examples of good valid inputs:
- astronaut on a tropical beach with a volcano in the background
- dragon ball, pokemon
- fantasy rpg set in medieval japan
- Need for Speed (Ghost Games), zombie apocalypse
- [Gameplay mode] swipe to destroy decorations in a rotating christmas tree
- [Gameplay mode] Block Blast! (Hungry Studio)
How can the Image Generator enhance my ideation process?
The Image Generator is a tool that generates visual representations based on your descriptions and concepts. It helps you visualize your ideas, making them more tangible and inspiring. These generated images can be used as references or mood boards during the development phase.
What do the different filters do?
Genres: Follow the style of the given game genre(s). Especially relevant for Gameplay mode.
Colors: Choose the main colors you want to see in the generated image. You can also type in any other more specific colors in the main input box (using a common English color name).
Art Style: Follow the selected art style.
Aspect Ratio: The aspect ratio of the generated images. The Icon and Header modes will ignore this selection.
Creative Mode: Enable this option if you want to get more varied and creative outputs. Behind the scenes, Ludo will automatically generate additional prompts based on your inputs, resulting in a much larger output variety. The relevance of the results may also vary though, so experimentation is key.
Can I use a reference image to generate an image?
Yes. Click the “Choose initial image” button and you can select any image from your device or your favorites to let Ludo.ai use as a reference image.
Ludo.ai will then use your source image to generate something similar that resembles the image you uploaded. You should also provide an input describing what you want to see in the final image. For example, if you upload an image of a dinosaur, you could type in "dinosaur catching balls".
You can control what to retain from the original image:
- Details: Keep the main image edges (including fine details)
- Composition: Keep the overall composition (depth map)
- Color: Keep the colors of original image.
- Image strength: Control the influence of the original image. Higher values will result in images that are closer to the original.
As always, exploration and experimentation are key to getting the results you want.
Can I edit or improve a generated image?
Yes. If you want to improve or modify one of the generated images, click on the edit button "Generate Similar Images" in the top right of an image (on hover).
New images will be generated that are based on that initial one. You can control how to modify the original image by changing the text input or any of the filters. You can also decide what you want to retain from the original image, and how closely you want to stick to it. See the question above for further details on what these options do.
