We have added a new feature in XCS called xArt, the AI-generated art tool! Well, if you haven't tried it, we highly recommend downloading the latest XCS and giving it a go. But here's the thing - to get the best results, you need to know how to write an effective prompt. A good prompt is the foundation for creating a unique and visually appealing piece of art. It should include a central theme, style, and mood, among other details. And that's why we're here to help you with our tips on how to write an effective prompt for xArt!
A prompt should ideally be concise. While xArt accommodates up to 1000 characters, we recommend limiting your prompts to under 50 words. The prompts should be written in English and devoid of emojis or non-English words, which xArt might not recognize. Case sensitivity does not influence the outcome, so you're free to write your prompts in lowercase if you prefer.

Prompt Composition Template
A prompt usually follows the following template. We will get to each part in the following sections.
Begin by entering a detailed descriptive sentence in the text box, like a photo caption. Your prompt should have these 3 core elements:
Subject description: subject, scene, and action Environmental scene: the light, atmosphere, and color. Angle of view: such as a close-up, two-point perspective, wide-angle lens, depth of field, front view, or full-body photo.
These simple prompts lay the foundation for your image.
Style plays a crucial role in your prompt, impacting the final image. Below the text box, we've included built-in keywords for various styles to help create images more suitable for laser engraving.
Our styles include Line art, Paper cut, Lowpoly art, Silhouette, Steampunk, Realistic, Gothic, Minimalist, Zentangle, and Typography.
Here is a preview of what they look like:
Dos & Don'ts
To maximize the potential of your prompt, follow these handy tips:
Start your prompt with the most important prompt, and try to maintain consistency in positioning similar words.
Use style descriptors to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the generated image.
Specify quantities when describing multiple subjects.
Maintain a positive phrasing for your prompts.
Avoid using a single word, as they often yield less artistic results.
when describing quantities, avoid using vague plural words like “cats”
Refrain from using negative words like “not”, “but”, “except”, and “without”, which might difficult for the text-to-image model to understand.
