1 Open Google colab VQGAN+CLIP sign in and connect
2 Download Required Python Packages
3 Choose Model to Download. For this tutorial we will use imagenet_16384 because its probably the best and faster to download, You can try all of them
4 Download Libraries for Neural Network
5 Art Generator Parameters:
Text: Firstly the most important parameter, This will be anything you want, Example psychedelic nightmares illustration flowers Height & width: Leave it at 500x500 because thats the max height, You can use ESRGAN to super-enhance it to 1760x1760 but in this tutorial we will leave it like that
Modal: Next its the modal, You will change this to any modal you have installed previously from the step 3, Since we install only imagenet_16384 we will leave it like that.
interval_image:50 A.I. will show us 1 image every 50 images it creates.
initial & objective images: We can give some images for A.I to start with or work on those images. We are not going to use this in this tutorial so leave it as it is
Seed: A number that is telling A.I. what path its taking as it generate the image, Currently its set to negative (-1) that will generate new random seed everytime we generate the images. For our purposes we will leave it like that.
max_iterations: This is the maximun number of steps that A.I. will take before finish running, I recomend -1 since the A.I. gets better on every step
6 Run the Art Generator :)
Once you run it, it will show an image that A.I. starts with. It will be an image like the example bellow.
The more A.I. works the better results you will see.
It will show us 1 image every 50 it create.
If you are willing to use to a lot I would recomend to buy the pro version of Google colab which will go 5 times faster.
Once you have the results you want stop it and download the image. After 3000 (images) I stoped it and have the following results, I can say that it looks like what I have asked psychedelic nightmares illustration flowers
7 Optional Step - Generate a video from generated frames
8 Show Video in Colab
9 Download Video
Once its finished it will download a video which will show as all images (frames) that A.I. generates in order to have our image results
2 Once you download it you will see the option to import an existing wallet or create a new wallet
3 Once your wallet is ready you will need to add Polygon Network because we need it to upload and sell our nft with lower fees. To add Polygon Network on the top right click Ethereum Mainnet, click Add Network and copy paste the informations same as bellow and click Save
4 Buy some Matic, You will need a few matic tokens in order to sell your NFT. You can use Uniswap to get some matic tokens. If you dont have any other tokens to swap to matic you can buy some with credit card.
You can use your Binance wallet or Crypto.com Wallet to buy some. I used crypto.com to buy some Polygon (matic) with my credit card.
Once you have bought some Polygon (matic) go at polygon wallet and connect your metamask wallet and open Polygon Wallet
Click Receive and send the Polygon (matic) tokens you bought before on that account through Polygon Network. Once you send the tokens you will see them in your account in a few minutes on Polygon Wallet and Metamask too
Upload and sell your NFT
1 Once you have created a new image that you want to make an NFT and you setup your metamask wallet with a few Matic tokens on it lets add our first NFT and sell it
2 Go at opensea.io and login with your metamask wallet
3 Once you are logged in hover your mouse on your profile picture and click My Collection
4 Click Create a collection
5 Create a collection there with the information asked. Once you are ready go at the Blockchain Field and select Polygon and click Create
6 Once you create your collection open it and click Add item
Image, Video, Audio, or 3D Model: Upload the NFT you created before
Name: Name your NFT
External link: If you have an website for your nft write it there, if you dont leave it blank
Description: Provide a detailed description of your item
Collection: Select your collection where your NFT will be uploaded
Supply: How many copies of your nft you want
7 Click Create
8 Once you uploded your NFT click Sell on the top right
Quantity: How many copies you want to sell
Price per unit: How much you want to sell it
9 Click Complete listing sign in with your metamask account and Done
