There are many cutting-edge image editing tools out there, but finding one that’s easy to use and completely open-source is a bit harder. I introduce you to Paint by Text!
This innovative website provides a simple interface for modifying images using text-based instructions. With Paint by Text, you can upload an image, provide a text prompt describing how to change that image, and generate new images based on the prompt.
But what powers this amazing image generation? InstructPix2Pix, an open-source machine learning model that combines the knowledge from GPT-3 and Stable Diffusion to generate a large dataset of image editing examples.
Created by Tim Brooks, Aleksander Holynski, and Alexei A. Efros at the University of California, Berkeley, this model is hosted on Replicate, which exposes a cloud API for running predictions.
Plus, the source code is publicly available on GitHub, so anyone can contribute to this amazing project.
So why wait? Try Paint by Text today and see if this open-source image editing application is as viable alternative to Midjourney.
