The paper introduces Pure and Lightning ID customization (PuLID), an innovative tuning-free method for customizing identities in text-to-image generation models. PuLID combines a Lightning T2I branch with a standard diffusion branch, enabling the incorporation of both contrastive alignment loss and accurate ID loss. This approach minimizes disruption to the original model while ensuring high fidelity in the generated images.

Experimental results demonstrate that PuLID outperforms existing methods in terms of identity fidelity and editability. The method’s ability to maintain consistency in image elements such as background, lighting, composition, and style before and after the identity insertion is a particularly attractive feature. This ensures that the generated images remain coherent and visually appealing, even after the customization process.

PuLID’s tuning-free nature and its ability to preserve the original model’s integrity make it a promising solution for identity customization in text-to-image generation tasks. The proposed method has the potential to enhance the quality and flexibility of generated images, opening up new possibilities for applications in various domains, such as creative industries, marketing, and personalized content creation.
