This package includes CycleGAN, pix2pix, as well as other methods like BiGAN/ALI and Apple's paper S+U learning.
The code was written by Jun-Yan Zhu and Taesung Park.
Update: Please check out PyTorch implementation for CycleGAN and pix2pix.
The PyTorch version is under active development and can produce results comparable or better than this Torch version.

CPU models can be downloaded using:
bash pretrained_models/download_model.sh <name>_cpu
<name> can be
style_monet, etc. You just need to append
_cpu to the target model.
Training and Test Details
To train a model,
DATA_ROOT=/path/to/data/ name=expt_name th train.lua
Models are saved to
./checkpoints/expt_name (can be changed by passing
checkpoint_dir=your_dir in train.lua).
options.lua for additional training options.
To test the model,
DATA_ROOT=/path/to/data/ name=expt_name phase=test th test.lua
This will run the model named
expt_name in both directions on all images in
A webpage with result images will be saved to
./results/expt_name (can be changed by passing
results_dir=your_dir in test.lua).
options.lua for additional test options. Please use
model=one_direction_test if you only would like to generate outputs of the trained network in only one direction, and specify
which_direction=BtoA to set the direction.
There are other options that can be used. For example, you can specify
resize_or_crop=crop option to avoid resizing the image to squares. This is indeed how we trained GTA2Cityscapes model in the projet webpage and Cycada model. We prepared the images at 1024px resolution, and used
resize_or_crop=crop fineSize=360 to work with the cropped images of size 360x360. We also used
Download the datasets using the following script. Many of the datasets were collected by other researchers. Please cite their papers if you use the data.
bash ./datasets/download_dataset.sh dataset_name
facades: 400 images from the CMP Facades dataset. [Citation]
cityscapes: 2975 images from the Cityscapes training set. [Citation]
maps: 1096 training images scraped from Google Maps.
horse2zebra: 939 horse images and 1177 zebra images downloaded from ImageNet using the keywords
apple2orange: 996 apple images and 1020 orange images downloaded from ImageNet using the keywords
summer2winter_yosemite: 1273 summer Yosemite images and 854 winter Yosemite images were downloaded using Flickr API. See more details in our paper.
cezanne2photo: The art images were downloaded from Wikiart. The real photos are downloaded from Flickr using the combination of the tags landscape and landscapephotography. The training set size of each class is Monet:1074, Cezanne:584, Van Gogh:401, Ukiyo-e:1433, Photographs:6853.
iphone2dslr_flower: both classes of images were downloaded from Flickr. The training set size of each class is iPhone:1813, DSLR:3316. See more details in our paper.
Optionally, for displaying images during training and test, use the display package.
- Install it with:
luarocks install https://raw.githubusercontent.com/szym/display/master/display-scm-0.rockspec
- Then start the server with:
- Open this URL in your browser: http://localhost:8000
By default, the server listens on localhost. Pass
0.0.0.0 to allow external connections on any interface:
th -ldisplay.start 8000 0.0.0.0
http://(hostname):(port)/ in your browser to load the remote desktop.
Setup Training and Test data
To train CycleGAN model on your own datasets, you need to create a data folder with two subdirectories
trainB that contain images from domain A and B. You can test your model on your training set by setting
test.lua. You can also create subdirectories
testB if you have test data.
You should not expect our method to work on just any random combination of input and output datasets (e.g.
cats<->keyboards). From our experiments, we find it works better if two datasets share similar visual content. For example,
landscape painting<->landscape photographs works much better than
portrait painting <-> landscape photographs.
zebras<->horses achieves compelling results while
cats<->dogs completely fails. See the following section for more discussion.
Our model does not work well when the test image is rather different from the images on which the model is trained, as is the case in the figure to the left (we trained on horses and zebras without riders, but test here one a horse with a rider). See additional typical failure cases here. On translation tasks that involve color and texture changes, like many of those reported above, the method often succeeds. We have also explored tasks that require geometric changes, with little success. For example, on the task of
dog<->cat transfiguration, the learned translation degenerates into making minimal changes to the input. We also observe a lingering gap between the results achievable with paired training data and those achieved by our unpaired method. In some cases, this gap may be very hard -- or even impossible,-- to close: for example, our method sometimes permutes the labels for tree and building in the output of the cityscapes photos->labels task.
