1: Life Like Diffusion

Like Like Diffusion is a powerful and versatile photorealistic stable diffusion model available on Civitai, Although it is not as popular as other models this model outperforms all other model when it comes to photorealism. This model excels at creating realistic images of people and is designed to capture the true essence of human subjects, including all their imperfections. Unlike many other models, Like Like Diffusion is capable of producing high-quality images of individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds. It supports various ethnicities, including but not limited to Native American, Indian, Arab, Hispanic, Latino, South Asian, Turkish, Black/African, Korean, and Chinese. With its comprehensive range of ethnic representation, Like Like Diffusion offers exceptional results for creating life like portraits.

2: Realistic Vision 2.0

Realistic Vision 1.3 is currently most downloaded photorealistic stable diffusion model available on civitai. The level of detail that this model can capture in its generated images is unparalleled, making it a top choice for photorealistic diffusion. This model’s ability to produce images with such remarkable accuracy and detail is what sets it apart from all other stable diffusion models.

3: Dreamlike Photoreal 2.0

Dreamlike Photoreal 2.0 is another great photorealistic model that can produce high-quality images, although may not be as good as realistic vision, it certainly has a dreamlike style of its own. This model was trained on high-quality portraits to produce great results. Most models including realistic vision, with the help of checkpoint merging, have incorporated dreamlike diffusion and protogen models into their custom models hence they perform better in most circumstances.

4. Analog Diffusion

Just like dreamlike diffusion, Analog Diffusion is another model that was trained on high-quality images to produce a specific style. Analog Diffusion produces images that are dreamy-like and stands out from the crowd. While the model can produce realistic images, it falls short in capturing some of the finer details that distinguish real-life objects from generated ones and has a late 80s style in its images. This model also requires more work to get decent photos. You might need to fiddle around and try different prompts to get what you are looking for.

5. ChilloutMix

chilloutmix is another model that can produce very good, photorealistic images with little effort. The model generates highly realistic human images that closely resemble real-life individuals. This model was trained on many high-quality portraits, hence producing very good results although it seems to be better at producing east Asian faces and falls short with south Asian and south American portraits.


In conclusion, Civitai provides great models for generating unique works of art, including, realistic Vision 2.0, Dreamlike Photoreal 2.0, Analog Diffusion, and ChilloutMix. These models produce high-quality images and are suitable for various styles, although they may not be as powerful as Life Like Diffusion. The Life Like Diffusion model in my opinion the best photorealistic stable diffusion custom model available currently. It stands out from all other stable diffusion models available on civitai due to its remarkable ability to accurately reproduce images with unparalleled detail.

However, it is essential to keep in mind that creating images of real faces can be risky, and it is crucial to take precautions. Using generated images of real people without their consent is a violation of their privacy and can lead to severe legal consequences. You may see many Lora or checkpoint models on civitai which were specifically trained to depict the faces of a specific celebrity. This in my opinion will soon lead to many lawsuits once the mainstream media learns about the existence of these models. Therefore, it is crucial to avoid generating faces of real people and only use the models for artistic purposes.
