A better (?) way of doing img2img by finding the noise which reconstructs the original image Img2Img

An idea i've had for a long while, but never really though that much into, is the concept of an image "compression" algorithm that uses some sort of image generation algorithm that takes a specific seed (previously generated with a preexisting image) and recreates that image via only the seed. Thereby effectively compressing the image far smaller than would ever be possible through conventional image compression.

This is basically that with the added benefit of not at all having a compressive effect die to the size and energy cost of actually running it, but also the ability to seamlessly edit any aspect of the image.

that’s true, but the trade off works the wrong way given the current resource landscape. storage and bandwidth are cheap compared to gpu time and energy.
