U buttons upscale an image generating a larger version of the selected image and adding more details.

Personal Experience: Crafting a Horror Film Creature and a Gorgeous Landscape
I followed the same steps above to design a horror film monster and a breathtaking landscape. For the monster, I selected a base image of a chilling creature and added sharp teeth, luminous
eyes, and a dark, foreboding background. The image on the top of this page was created with the prompt "middle-aged man confronting a monster that is a hellish ghoulish monstrosity frightening and fierce.
I explored both the realistic and futuristic settings, which yielded distinct visual styles. The realistic setting produced a more convincing and terrifying appearance, while the futuristic setting infused the image with a mysterious, supernatural quality.
For the picturesque landscape, I began with a base image of a tranquil lake encircled by mountains. I modified the colors to generate a vivid sunset and incorporated futuristic elements, such as levitating islands and advanced structures. The realistic setting rendered the landscape like a stunning photograph, while the futuristic setting transformed it into an enchanting, dreamy scene.
