If not, then how about if I tell you that there is a way where you can change the image style and themes to transform them from just a picture to a mesmerising visual in many different styles
Leonardo Ai Style Presets are the feature that lets you select themes in various varieties and incorporate them into your image with a finger click just when you enable the Alchemy mode.
So Let’s get into the presets and Alchemy world to discover Leonardo.Ai.
What are Leonardo Ai Style Presets?
Leonardo presets the themes provided to you according to different kinds of images when you enable Alchemy.
But if you are generating a standard image, you will be bound to choose between Leonardo or no style.
The excitement arrives when you turn on the Alchemy, which is costly but worth it. By enabling Alchemy mode, you have the independence to choose from a variety of different Leonardo presets.
How to use Leonardo ai Presets?
The Leonardo ai presets are different and can only be accessible by turning on Alchemy.
Let’s get into how to use these styles after enabling Alchemy mode.

After logging in to Leoanrdo, access the home screen. You will see the AI Image Generation option on the left panel.
Click on that to enter the world of creativity, where you will be introduced to Leonardo style and many other features like this.
Enable Alchemy mode
Without switching to Alchemy mode, you don’t have any option of styles except for one, which is Leonardo style.
If you want to experience something magical, then go ahead and turn on the Alchemy option to let the magic happen.
There must be more than choosing a preset to generate your desired image. To explain your requirements to Leonardo, you must also provide a description.
And for that, you can utilise the prompt or negative prompt box to convey your message to Leonardo.ai.
Here is the passport to enter whatever world of creativity you want.
You have multiple presets that you can select that suit your image. But remember to be careful while selecting because it costs extra tokens.
For instance, choose photography or general preset if your prompt is for portraits. Same way, if your prompt is linked to any building, choose environment and dynamic.
Set Image Settings
After entering the prompt and choosing a style, set your image settings like a number of images, photo real, prompt Magic, guidance scale, and more options.
Once you are done entering a proper description for your image and selecting the perfect Leonardo style. The only last step left is to attack that generate button now.
And then you will be just a few seconds away from your dream results.
