Discombobulate
2023-05-15

With AI imagery, anything you do to a prompt changes it. Moving things around, even the addition of a comma or something. I love, however, when you stumble upon a term that is REALLY full of magic, even if kinda silly and gibberish-ish.

I am a photographer. Many months ago I tested the term “Knolling” and it blew my mind. Knolling Photography is when you lay objects in an organized manner, like a form of product photography, but when you combine something random with Knolling – things get really fun (and funny).

Well, today I stumbled upon a new magical word… Discombobulate! A term I rarely use in real life, typically meaning to disturb or confuse, creates the most complex surrealist images I have ever seen, similar to some gibberish prompting, but with really interesting results when paired with a main idea. I found that you can add a high weight of this term to any idea (just add “:: Discombobulate::2” to any idea) and things get really busy, silly, and nonsensical. It’s like a weird drug induced hallucination with hints of Hieronymus Bosch and Dr Seuss. Seriously though, you all need to try it!

InPainting, aka Vary Region
