This isn’t the first time I’ve talked to you about art-generating AIs, but there’s a feature found in DallE-2 and Stable Diffusion that’s really cool and I invite you to try it today: Outpainting.
Outpainting consists of generating everything outside the image field (or erased from the image) from an existing image, thanks to AI.
And even if the result is sometimes approximate, it’s fun to do. Infinity Diffusion Stable thus proposes a web interface for Stable Diffusion that makes it possible to fill a “Canvas” (a canvas wat) that is infinite.
So, starting with an Instagram photo of my feisty person…
I was able to use a few basic prompts to get this result:
So yes, it’s ugly, but I didn’t spend hours there either. I think by taking it easy, taking a lot of time and testing a lot, you can come up with something more cohesive and beautiful.
But beware, once you put your finger in it you’ll be there all day, so watch out.
To install this thing you can either launch the local install or go directly to the colab. But if you don’t want to waste time, it’s like every time on HuggingFace it happens.
