Summary:

The paper proposes a method for text-to-image generation using rich text prompts that support various text attributes such as font family, size, color, and footnote. The method enables precise control of text-to-image synthesis regarding colors, styles, and object details compared to plain text. The paper demonstrates that the proposed method outperforms strong baselines with quantitative evaluations.

Key Insights & Learnings:

  • Plain text has limitations in accurately describing desired outputs, especially for specifying continuous quantities and creating detailed text prompts for complex scenes.
  • Rich text editors offer unique solutions for incorporating conditional information separate from the text, such as font color, size, style, and footnotes.
  • The proposed method decomposes a rich-text prompt into a short plain-text prompt and multiple region-specific prompts that include text attributes.
  • The method achieves precise color rendering, distinct styles, and accurate details compared to plain text-based methods.
  • The proposed method outperforms strong baselines with quantitative evaluations.
