Once enabled, the extension provides various buttons that allow you to resize images easily.

Resizing Images with Different Ratios:

Using the Aspect Ratio Helper, you can effortlessly generate images with specific ratios. To select your desired aspect ratio (e.g., square ratio - 1:1, landscape ratio - 16:9) click on little square next to the width and height properties: extensions-to-optimize-your-stable-diffusion-ui-workflow_aspect_ratio_helper_nextdiffusion_6.png

When the Aspect Ratio Helper is enabled, modifying either the width or height will automatically adjust the corresponding properties. For instance, if the aspect ratio is set to 1:1 and the height is changed to 700, the width will also be automatically adjusted to 700.

Now it is time to generate some amazing images using my selected 16:9 ratio. Load your prompts and click on "Generate". The resulting images will be in the chosen format.
