Inference Endpoint for ControlNet using runwayml/stable-diffusion-v1-5

ControlNet is a neural network structure to control diffusion models by adding extra conditions. Official repository: https://github.com/lllyasviel/ControlNet

Blog post: Controlled text to image generation with Inference Endpoints

This repository implements a custom handler task for controlled text-to-image generation on 🤗 Inference Endpoints. The code for the customized pipeline is in the handler.py.

There is also a notebook included, on how to create the handler.py


expected Request payload

    "inputs": "A prompt used for image generation",
    "negative_prompt": "low res, bad anatomy, worst quality, low quality",
    "controlnet_type": "depth",

supported controlnet_type are: canny_edge, pose, depth, scribble, segmentation, normal, hed, hough

below is an example on how to run a request using Python and requests.

Use Python to send requests

  1. Get image
wget https://huggingface.co/datasets/diffusers/test-arrays/resolve/main/stable_diffusion_imgvar/input_image_vermeer.png
  1. Use the following code to send a request to the endpoint
import json
from typing import List
import requests as r
import base64
from PIL import Image
from io import BytesIO

ENDPOINT_URL = "" # your endpoint url
HF_TOKEN = "" # your huggingface token `hf_xxx`

# helper image utils
def encode_image(image_path):
  with open(image_path, "rb") as i:
    b64 = base64.b64encode(i.read())
  return b64.decode("utf-8")

def predict(prompt, image, negative_prompt=None, controlnet_type = "normal"):
    image = encode_image(image)

    # prepare sample payload
    request = {"inputs": prompt, "image": image, "negative_prompt": negative_prompt, "controlnet_type": controlnet_type}
    # headers
    headers = {
        "Authorization": f"Bearer {HF_TOKEN}",
        "Content-Type": "application/json",
        "Accept": "image/png" # important to get an image back

    response = r.post(ENDPOINT_URL, headers=headers, json=request)
    if response.status_code != 200:
        raise Exception("Prediction failed")
    img = Image.open(BytesIO(response.content))
    return img

prediction = predict(
  prompt = "cloudy sky background lush landscape house and green trees, RAW photo (high detailed skin:1.2), 8k uhd, dslr, soft lighting, high quality, film grain, Fujifilm XT3",
  negative_prompt ="lowres, bad anatomy, worst quality, low quality, city, traffic",
  controlnet_type = "hed",
  image = "huggingface.png"

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.
