Image chooser Description

Image chooser is a custom node that halts the workflow, allowing users to select an image or latent to continue the process.

Image chooser Introduction

The cg-image-picker extension is a powerful tool designed to enhance your workflow by allowing you to preview and select images within your AI art projects. This extension is particularly useful for AI artists who need to manage multiple images and make selections based on visual previews. By integrating cg-image-picker into your workflow, you can streamline the process of choosing the best images to pass on to subsequent stages, whether as images or latent representations. This can save you time and effort, ensuring that your creative process is both efficient and effective.

How Image chooser Works

The cg-image-picker extension operates by pausing your workflow at designated points, allowing you to preview a set of images. You can then select one or more images to continue through the workflow. Think of it as a visual checkpoint where you can make decisions based on what you see. This is particularly useful in AI art workflows where visual quality and specific image characteristics are crucial.

Here's a simple analogy: imagine you're a photographer reviewing a contact sheet of photos. You pick the best shots to develop further. Similarly, cg-image-picker lets you review generated images and choose the ones that meet your criteria to proceed in the workflow.

Image chooser Features

Image and Latent Selection

  • Preview and Select: Pause the workflow to preview images and select the ones you want to continue with.
  • Latent Handling: If you have latent inputs, the same latents are output as images in the order you selected them.

Customizable Modes

  • Always Pause: Default mode where the workflow always waits for your selection.
  • Repeat Last Selection: Automatically uses the last selection if nothing upstream has changed.
  • Only Pause if Batch: Pauses only if there is more than one image; otherwise, it passes the single image through.
  • Progress First Pick: Automatically progresses the first selected image without needing an additional click.
  • Pass Through: Bypasses the node, passing all images through without pausing.
  • Take First n: Passes the first n images.
  • Take Last n: Passes the last n images.

Hotkeys and Alerts

  • Hotkeys: Use keys 1...9 to select images and 0 to either progress selected images or cancel the run.
  • Alert Sound: A ping sound alerts you when the chooser node is waiting. This can be customized or turned off in the settings.

HUD Position Control

  • HUD Settings: Adjust the position of the Heads-Up Display (HUD) in the main settings menu for better visibility and convenience.

Image chooser Models

The cg-image-picker extension does not use different models in the traditional sense but offers various modes to customize how images are selected and passed through the workflow. Each mode serves a specific purpose and can be tailored to fit different stages of your creative process.

Troubleshooting Image chooser

Common Issues and Solutions

  • Workflow Not Pausing: Ensure that the node is correctly set to "Always Pause" mode.

  • Latents Not Passing Through: Make sure latents are connected and the mode is set to handle latents.
  • Hotkeys Not Working: Verify that hotkeys are configured correctly in the settings menu.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I change other widgets while the workflow is paused?
  • No, changes to other widgets during a pause are not applied to the current run. However, you can use the "Repeat last selection" mode for similar functionality.
  • How do I turn off the alert sound?
  • You can disable the alert sound or change it by replacing the js/ding.mp3 file with any audio file of your choice.
