Text-to-Image Generation with ControlNet Conditioning

Overview

Adding Conditional Control to Text-to-Image Diffusion Models by Lvmin Zhang and Maneesh Agrawala.

Using the pretrained models we can provide control images (for example, a depth map) to control Stable Diffusion text-to-image generation so that it follows the structure of the depth image and fills in the details.

The abstract of the paper is the following:

We present a neural network structure, ControlNet, to control pretrained large diffusion models to support additional input conditions. The ControlNet learns task-specific conditions in an end-to-end way, and the learning is robust even when the training dataset is small (< 50k). Moreover, training a ControlNet is as fast as fine-tuning a diffusion model, and the model can be trained on a personal devices. Alternatively, if powerful computation clusters are available, the model can scale to large amounts (millions to billions) of data. We report that large diffusion models like Stable Diffusion can be augmented with ControlNets to enable conditional inputs like edge maps, segmentation maps, keypoints, etc. This may enrich the methods to control large diffusion models and further facilitate related applications.

Usage example

In the following we give a simple example of how to use a ControlNet checkpoint with Diffusers for inference. The inference pipeline is the same for all pipelines:

Let’s have a look at a simple example using the Canny Edge ControlNet.

from diffusers import StableDiffusionControlNetPipeline
from diffusers.utils import load_image

# Let's load the popular vermeer image
image = load_image(
    "https://hf.co/datasets/huggingface/documentation-images/resolve/main/diffusers/input_image_vermeer.png"
)

img

Next, we process the image to get the canny image. This is step 1. - running the pre-conditioning processor. The pre-conditioning processor is different for every ControlNet. Please see the model cards of the official checkpoints for more information about other models.

First, we need to install opencv:

pip install opencv-contrib-python

Next, let’s also install all required Hugging Face libraries:

pip install diffusers transformers git+https://github.com/huggingface/accelerate.git

Then we can retrieve the canny edges of the image.

import cv2
from PIL import Image
import numpy as np

image = np.array(image)

low_threshold = 100
high_threshold = 200

image = cv2.Canny(image, low_threshold, high_threshold)
image = image[:, :, None]
image = np.concatenate([image, image, image], axis=2)
canny_image = Image.fromarray(image)

Let’s take a look at the processed image.

img

Now, we load the official Stable Diffusion 1.5 Model as well as the ControlNet for canny edges.

from diffusers import StableDiffusionControlNetPipeline, ControlNetModel
import torch

controlnet = ControlNetModel.from_pretrained("lllyasviel/sd-controlnet-canny", torch_dtype=torch.float16)
pipe = StableDiffusionControlNetPipeline.from_pretrained(
    "runwayml/stable-diffusion-v1-5", controlnet=controlnet, torch_dtype=torch.float16
)

To speed-up things and reduce memory, let’s enable model offloading and use the fast UniPCMultistepScheduler.

from diffusers import UniPCMultistepScheduler

pipe.scheduler = UniPCMultistepScheduler.from_config(pipe.scheduler.config)

# this command loads the individual model components on GPU on-demand.
pipe.enable_model_cpu_offload()

Finally, we can run the pipeline:

generator = torch.manual_seed(0)

out_image = pipe(
    "disco dancer with colorful lights", num_inference_steps=20, generator=generator, image=canny_image
).images[0]

This should take only around 3-4 seconds on GPU (depending on hardware). The output image then looks as follows:

img

Note: To see how to run all other ControlNet checkpoints, please have a look at ControlNet with Stable Diffusion 1.5

Available checkpoints

ControlNet requires a control image in addition to the text-to-image prompt. Each pretrained model is trained using a different conditioning method that requires different images for conditioning the generated outputs. For example, Canny edge conditioning requires the control image to be the output of a Canny filter, while depth conditioning requires the control image to be a depth map. See the overview and image examples below to know more.

All checkpoints can be found under the authors’ namespace lllyasviel.

( prompt: typing.Union[str, typing.List[str]] = None image: typing.Union[torch.FloatTensor, PIL.Image.Image, typing.List[torch.FloatTensor], typing.List[PIL.Image.Image]] = None height: typing.Optional[int] = None width: typing.Optional[int] = None num_inference_steps: int = 50 guidance_scale: float = 7.5 negative_prompt: typing.Union[str, typing.List[str], NoneType] = None num_images_per_prompt: typing.Optional[int] = 1 eta: float = 0.0 generator: typing.Union[torch._C.Generator, typing.List[torch._C.Generator], NoneType] = None latents: typing.Optional[torch.FloatTensor] = None prompt_embeds: typing.Optional[torch.FloatTensor] = None negative_prompt_embeds: typing.Optional[torch.FloatTensor] = None output_type: typing.Optional[str] = 'pil' return_dict: bool = True callback: typing.Union[typing.Callable[[int, int, torch.FloatTensor], NoneType], NoneType] = None callback_steps: int = 1 cross_attention_kwargs: typing.Union[typing.Dict[str, typing.Any], NoneType] = None controlnet_conditioning_scale: float = 1.0 ) StableDiffusionPipelineOutput or tuple

Parameters

  • prompt (str or List[str], optional) — The prompt or prompts to guide the image generation. If not defined, one has to pass prompt_embeds. instead.
  • image (torch.FloatTensor, PIL.Image.Image, List[torch.FloatTensor] or List[PIL.Image.Image]) — The ControlNet input condition. ControlNet uses this input condition to generate guidance to Unet. If the type is specified as Torch.FloatTensor, it is passed to ControlNet as is. PIL.Image.Image` can also be accepted as an image. The control image is automatically resized to fit the output image.
  • height (int, optional, defaults to self.unet.config.sample_size * self.vae_scale_factor) — The height in pixels of the generated image.
  • width (int, optional, defaults to self.unet.config.sample_size * self.vae_scale_factor) — The width in pixels of the generated image.
  • num_inference_steps (int, optional, defaults to 50) — The number of denoising steps. More denoising steps usually lead to a higher quality image at the expense of slower inference.
  • guidance_scale (float, optional, defaults to 7.5) — Guidance scale as defined in Classifier-Free Diffusion Guidance. guidance_scale is defined as w of equation 2. of Imagen Paper. Guidance scale is enabled by setting guidance_scale > 1. Higher guidance scale encourages to generate images that are closely linked to the text prompt, usually at the expense of lower image quality.
  • negative_prompt (str or List[str], optional) — The prompt or prompts not to guide the image generation. If not defined, one has to pass negative_prompt_embeds. instead. If not defined, one has to pass negative_prompt_embeds. instead. Ignored when not using guidance (i.e., ignored if guidance_scale is less than 1).
  • num_images_per_prompt (int, optional, defaults to 1) — The number of images to generate per prompt.
  • eta (float, optional, defaults to 0.0) — Corresponds to parameter eta (η) in the DDIM paper: https://arxiv.org/abs/2010.02502. Only applies to schedulers.DDIMScheduler, will be ignored for others.
  • generator (torch.Generator or List[torch.Generator], optional) — One or a list of torch generator(s) to make generation deterministic.
  • latents (torch.FloatTensor, optional) — Pre-generated noisy latents, sampled from a Gaussian distribution, to be used as inputs for image generation. Can be used to tweak the same generation with different prompts. If not provided, a latents tensor will ge generated by sampling using the supplied random generator.
  • prompt_embeds (torch.FloatTensor, optional) — Pre-generated text embeddings. Can be used to easily tweak text inputs, e.g. prompt weighting. If not provided, text embeddings will be generated from prompt input argument.
  • negative_prompt_embeds (torch.FloatTensor, optional) — Pre-generated negative text embeddings. Can be used to easily tweak text inputs, e.g. prompt weighting. If not provided, negative_prompt_embeds will be generated from negative_prompt input argument.
  • output_type (str, optional, defaults to "pil") — The output format of the generate image. Choose between PIL: PIL.Image.Image or np.array.
  • return_dict (bool, optional, defaults to True) — Whether or not to return a StableDiffusionPipelineOutput instead of a plain tuple.
  • callback (Callable, optional) — A function that will be called every callback_steps steps during inference. The function will be called with the following arguments: callback(step: int, timestep: int, latents: torch.FloatTensor).
  • callback_steps (int, optional, defaults to 1) — The frequency at which the callback function will be called. If not specified, the callback will be called at every step.
  • cross_attention_kwargs (dict, optional) — A kwargs dictionary that if specified is passed along to the AttnProcessor as defined under self.processor in diffusers.cross_attention.
  • controlnet_conditioning_scale (float, optional, defaults to 1.0) — The outputs of the controlnet are multiplied by controlnet_conditioning_scale before they are added to the residual in the original unet.

StableDiffusionPipelineOutput if return_dict is True, otherwise a tuple. When returning a tuple, the first element is a list with the generated images, and the second element is a list of bools denoting whether the corresponding generated image likely represents "not-safe-for-work" (nsfw) content, according to the safety_checker`.

enable_attention_slicing

< >

( slice_size: typing.Union[str, int, NoneType] = 'auto' )

Parameters

  • slice_size (str or int, optional, defaults to "auto") — When "auto", halves the input to the attention heads, so attention will be computed in two steps. If "max", maxium amount of memory will be saved by running only one slice at a time. If a number is provided, uses as many slices as attention_head_dim // slice_size. In this case, attention_head_dim must be a multiple of slice_size.

Enable sliced attention computation.

When this option is enabled, the attention module will split the input tensor in slices, to compute attention in several steps. This is useful to save some memory in exchange for a small speed decrease.

disable_attention_slicing

< >

( )

Disable sliced attention computation. If enable_attention_slicing was previously invoked, this method will go back to computing attention in one step.

enable_vae_slicing

< >

( )

Enable sliced VAE decoding.

When this option is enabled, the VAE will split the input tensor in slices to compute decoding in several steps. This is useful to save some memory and allow larger batch sizes.

disable_vae_slicing

< >

( )

Disable sliced VAE decoding. If enable_vae_slicing was previously invoked, this method will go back to computing decoding in one step.

enable_xformers_memory_efficient_attention

< >

( attention_op: typing.Optional[typing.Callable] = None )

Parameters

  • attention_op (Callable, optional) — Override the default None operator for use as op argument to the memory_efficient_attention() function of xFormers.

Enable memory efficient attention as implemented in xformers.

When this option is enabled, you should observe lower GPU memory usage and a potential speed up at inference time. Speed up at training time is not guaranteed.

Warning: When Memory Efficient Attention and Sliced attention are both enabled, the Memory Efficient Attention is used.

Examples:

>>> import torch
>>> from diffusers import DiffusionPipeline
>>> from xformers.ops import MemoryEfficientAttentionFlashAttentionOp

>>> pipe = DiffusionPipeline.from_pretrained("stabilityai/stable-diffusion-2-1", torch_dtype=torch.float16)
>>> pipe = pipe.to("cuda")
>>> pipe.enable_xformers_memory_efficient_attention(attention_op=MemoryEfficientAttentionFlashAttentionOp)
>>> # Workaround for not accepting attention shape using VAE for Flash Attention
>>> pipe.vae.enable_xformers_memory_efficient_attention(attention_op=None)

disable_xformers_memory_efficient_attention

< >

( )

Disable memory efficient attention as implemented in xformers.

enable_model_cpu_offload

< >

( gpu_id = 0 )

Offloads all models to CPU using accelerate, reducing memory usage with a low impact on performance. Compared to enable_sequential_cpu_offload, this method moves one whole model at a time to the GPU when its forward method is called, and the model remains in GPU until the next model runs. Memory savings are lower than with enable_sequential_cpu_offload, but performance is much better due to the iterative execution of the unet.

enable_sequential_cpu_offload

< >

( gpu_id = 0 )

Offloads all models to CPU using accelerate, significantly reducing memory usage. When called, unet, text_encoder, vae, controlnet, and safety checker have their state dicts saved to CPU and then are moved to a torch.device('meta') and loaded to GPU only when their specific submodule has its forwardmethod called. Note that offloading happens on a submodule basis. Memory savings are higher than withenable_model_cpu_offload`, but performance is lower.
