TL;DR: We introduce Fast Image Semantically Edit (FISEdit), a framework for image editing based on minor textual modifications. FISEdit automatically identifies the region to edit and sparsely updates the image to improve efficiency.
Abstract: Due to the recent success of diffusion models, text-to-image generation is becoming increasingly popular and achieves a wide range of applications. Among them, text-to-image editing, or continuous text-to-image generation, attracts lots of attention and can potentially improve the quality of generated images. It's common to see that users may want to slightly edit the generated image by making minor modifications to their input textual descriptions for several rounds of diffusion inference. However, such an image editing process suffers from long-standing heuristics and low inference efficiency. This means that the extent of image editing is uncontrollable, and unnecessary editing invariably leads to extra computation. To solve this problem, we introduce Fast Image Semantically Edit (FISEdit), a cached-enabled sparse diffusion model inference method for efficient text-to-image editing. Extensive empirical results show that FISEdit can be $3.4\times$ and $4.4\times$ faster than existing methods on NVIDIA TITAN RTX and A100 GPUs respectively, and even generates more satisfactory images.
