Generating an image in any pose has become very easy with the image-to-image feature presented by Leonardo. Anyone can use it, whether you are a professional artist or just someone new to

You only need a simple image to guide and a simple description. From here, Leonardo will get you an image of your imagination. To ensure you get a fine and unique piece of art, you can edit features like “Init Strenght” or “Guiding Scale.” 


Is the image-to-image feature different from the image prompt feature? 

In the image prompt feature, incorporates both your text prompt and image prompt idea in one image, providing the result with the hint of both prompts and its own ideas. 
In the image-to-image feature, Leonardo generates an image exactly in the same position as the image reference. 

What to do if I can’t activate my image-to-image feature?

If you cannot switch to the image-to-image option, go to the prompt magic feature and disable that. This will grant you access to selecting your image.

Can I select multiple images as a reference in the Image-to-Image feature? accurately replicates the posture of your image reference into your final output. This means that it can not blend two images into one result. Therefore, you are only limited to selecting only one image in each generation.  

What should be the Init Strenght ratio for the perfect image in

The accuracy of the final image depends on how much you increase the Init strength of it. If you are adding a text prompt as well, it is advisable to reduce the Init Strenght a little bit.
As far as I have experienced, an ideal balance to get a blend of both text and image is usually achieved with the Init Strenght of  0.3
