Model overview

diffbir is a versatile AI model developed by researcher Xinqi Lin and team that can tackle various blind image restoration tasks, including blind image super-resolution, blind face restoration, and blind image denoising. Unlike traditional image restoration models that rely on fixed degradation assumptions, diffbir leverages the power of generative diffusion models to handle a wide range of real-world image degradations in a blind manner. This approach enables diffbir to produce high-quality restored images without requiring prior knowledge about the specific degradation process.

The model is similar to other powerful image restoration models like GFPGAN, which specializes in restoring old photos and AI-generated faces, and SuperIR, which practices model scaling for photo-realistic image restoration. However, diffbir distinguishes itself by its broad applicability and its ability to handle a wide range of real-world image degradations in a unified manner.

Model inputs and outputs

Inputs

  • input: Path to the input image you want to enhance.
  • upscaling_model_type: Choose the type of model best suited for the primary content of the image: 'faces' for portraits and 'general_scenes' for everything else.
  • restoration_model_type: Select the restoration model that aligns with the content of your image. This model is responsible for image restoration which removes degradations.
  • super_resolution_factor: Factor by which the input image resolution should be increased. For instance, a factor of 4 will make the resolution 4 times greater in both height and width.
  • steps: The number of enhancement iterations to perform. More steps might result in a clearer image but can also introduce artifacts.
  • repeat_times: Number of times the enhancement process is repeated by feeding the output back as input. This can refine the result but might also introduce over-enhancement issues.
  • tiled: Whether to use patch-based sampling. This can be useful for very large images to enhance them in smaller chunks rather than all at once.
  • tile_size: Size of each tile (or patch) when 'tiled' option is enabled. Determines how the image is divided during patch-based enhancement.
  • tile_stride: Distance between the start of each tile when the image is divided for patch-based enhancement. A smaller stride means more overlap between tiles.
  • use_guidance: Use latent image guidance for enhancement. This can help in achieving more accurate and contextually relevant enhancements.
  • guidance_scale: For 'general_scenes': Scale factor for the guidance mechanism. Adjusts the influence of guidance on the enhancement process.
  • guidance_space: For 'general_scenes': Determines in which space (RGB or latent) the guidance operates. 'latent' can often provide more subtle and context-aware enhancements.
  • guidance_repeat: For 'general_scenes': Number of times the guidance process is repeated during enhancement.
  • guidance_time_start: For 'general_scenes': Specifies when (at which step) the guidance mechanism starts influencing the enhancement.
  • guidance_time_stop: For 'general_scenes': Specifies when (at which step) the guidance mechanism stops influencing the enhancement.
  • has_aligned: For 'faces' mode: Indicates if the input images are already cropped and aligned to faces. If not, the model will attempt to do this.
  • only_center_face: For 'faces' mode: If multiple faces are detected, only enhance the center-most face in the image.
  • background_upsampler: For 'faces' mode: Model used to upscale the background in images where the primary subject is a face.
  • face_detection_model: For 'faces' mode: Model used for detecting faces in the image. Choose based on accuracy and speed preferences.
  • background_upsampler_tile: For 'faces' mode: Size of each tile used by the background upsampler when dividing the image into patches.
  • background_upsampler_tile_stride: For 'faces' mode: Distance between the start of each tile when the background is divided for upscaling. A smaller stride means more overlap between tiles.

Outputs

  • Output: The enhanced image(s) produced by the diffbir model.

Capabilities

diffbir can handle a wide range of real-world image degradations, including low resolution, noise, and blur, without requiring prior knowledge about the specific degradation process. The model is capable of performing blind image super-resolution, blind face restoration, and blind image denoising, producing high-quality results that outperform traditional restoration methods.

What can I use it for?

You can use diffbir to enhance various types of images, from portraits and landscapes to old photos and AI-generated images. The model's versatility makes it a powerful tool for tasks such as:

  • Upscaling low-resolution images while preserving details and avoiding artifacts
  • Restoring degraded or low-quality facial images, such as those from old photos or AI-generated faces
  • Removing noise and artifacts from images, improving their overall quality and clarity

The broad applicability of diffbir makes it a valuable resource for photographers, digital artists, and anyone working with visual content that requires restoration or enhancement.

Things to try

One interesting aspect of diffbir is its ability to leverage latent image guidance for more accurate and context-aware enhancements. By specifying the appropriate guidance settings, you can explore how this feature affects the restoration results and find the right balance between quality and fidelity.

Another feature worth experimenting with is the patch-based sampling approach, which can be useful for enhancing very large images. By dividing the image into smaller tiles and processing them individually, you can reduce the memory requirements and potentially achieve better results, especially for high upscaling factors.

Overall, the versatility and performance of diffbir make it a compelling choice for a wide range of image restoration and enhancement tasks. By exploring the various options and capabilities of the model, you can unlock its full potential and achieve impressive results.
