To achieve disentangled image manipulation, previous works depend heavily on manual annotation. Meanwhile, the available manipulations are limited to a pre-defined set the models were trained for. We propose a novel framework, i.e., Predict, Prevent, and Evaluate (PPE), for disentangled text-driven image manipulation that requires little manual annotation while being applicable to a wide variety of manipulations. Our method approaches the targets by deeply exploiting the power of the

Then, based on the predicted attributes, we introduce an entanglement loss to Prevent entanglements during training. Finally, we propose a new evaluation metric to Evaluate the disentangled image manipulation. We verify the effectiveness of our method on the challenging face editing task. Extensive experiments show that the proposed PPE framework achieves much better quantitative and qualitative results than the up-to-date StyleCLIP baseline.
