Web Server & UI

Invoke runs a locally hosted web server & React UI with an industry-leading user experience.

Unified Canvas

The Unified Canvas is a fully integrated canvas implementation with support for all core generation capabilities, in/out-painting, brush tools, and more. This creative tool unlocks the capability for artists to create with AI as a creative collaborator, and can be used to augment AI-generated imagery, sketches, photography, renders, and more.

Workflows & Nodes

Invoke offers a fully featured workflow management solution, enabling users to combine the power of node-based workflows with the easy of a UI. This allows for customizable generation pipelines to be developed and shared by users looking to create specific workflows to support their production use-cases.

Invoke features an organized gallery system for easily storing, accessing, and remixing your content in the Invoke workspace. Images can be dragged/dropped onto any Image-base UI element in the application, and rich metadata within the Image allows for easy recall of key prompts or settings used in your workflow.
