Introducing Pirate Diffusion, a new community on Telegram

We’re proud to announce the launch of Pirate Diffusion, a new artificial intelligence artist community powered by Gradient AI.  It’s a free AI art maker with multiple rooms and and a built-in chat component.

Accessibility and casual ease of use were big inspirations for the application. “You can now create AI images on the go quickly just by chatting on Telegram, on our channel, or take it over to your own existing private Telegram group. Nothing to install, nothing to buy. We’re paying for everyone’s GPU time right now, and some patrons are donating to help us bring on a second server. You can join us and start rendering for free. It’s on us.”

And there’s a lot to like. For beginners, it’s very easy to use. If you get stuck or don’t know what to do, there’s a thousand other people there chatting and creating along side you.

For professionals, there are many fine-tune controls and additional commands that the app responds to, like being able to define a style without tying a long description (prompt) every time, or giving an AI image a quick “face lift” within seconds to improve the fidelity. For example, creators going for that painterly-styled Midjourney look can program a macro to do just that.

For this use case, Graydient AI’s solution is a custom implementation of many proprietary processes, an upscaler, and various open source libraries. What’s unique over many other free render applications, Pirate Diffusion is an open anonymous community that is also creating a custom “catalog” of images, such as current events, not found in the vanilla open source distributions of AI render libraries, but is based on Stable Diffusion.

“Someone’s gotta do it”, said Tlack, Chief Technology Pirate. “Some of our community members are focused on cataloguing important news happenings from five minutes ago, and we’re also automating a lot of that. We’re building a very useful data set. It’s not just for funny pictures, it’s quite versatile.”

Here’s an example of how it works:


Graydient AI is a groupware software company that puts the magic of creating any kind of photo or painting into multiple hands at once. That means that as a team, on any social media, anyone can create art in a fun, collaborative way.

You’re probably here because you want to generate AI images, and you’re in the right place. We’re here to help you do that in an easier, better way than ever before, and we want to make it more collaborative and more fun.
