SUPIR Image Enhance / Upscale is Literally Like From Science Fiction Movies

Complete Guide to SUPIR Enhancing and Upscaling Images Like in Sci-Fi Movies on Your PC for Free :

In this video, I explain how to 1 click install and use the most advanced image upscaler / enhancer in the world that is both commercially and open source available. The upscaler that I am going to introduce you is open source #SUPIR and it is free to use. SUPIR upscaler is many times better than both paid Topaz AI and Magnific AI and you can use this upscaler on your computer for free forever. The difference of SUPIR vs #Topaz and #Magnific is like ages. So in this tutorial you are going to learn everything about how to install, update and use SUPIR upscaler on your personal computer. The video shows Windows but it works perfectly fine on Linux as well.

Scaling Up to Excellence: Practicing Model Scaling for Photo-Realistic Image Restoration In the Wild :

Authors introduce SUPIR (Scaling-UP Image Restoration), a groundbreaking image restoration method that harnesses generative prior and the power of model scaling up. Leveraging multi-modal techniques and advanced generative prior, SUPIR marks a significant advance in intelligent and realistic image restoration. As a pivotal catalyst within SUPIR, model scaling dramatically enhances its capabilities and demonstrates new potential for image restoration. Authors collect a dataset comprising 20 million high-resolution, high-quality images for model training, each enriched with descriptive text annotations. SUPIR provides the capability to restore images guided by textual prompts, broadening its application scope and potential. Moreover, Authors introduce negative-quality prompts to further improve perceptual quality. Authors also develop a restoration-guided sampling method to suppress the fidelity issue encountered in generative-based restoration. Experiments demonstrate SUPIR’s exceptional restoration effects and its novel capacity to manipulate restoration through textual prompts.
