ValueError: Invalid image type. Expected either PIL.Image.Image, numpy.ndarray, torch.Tensor, tf.Tensor or jax.ndarray, but got

I am trying to train the Deplot model using Huggingface Library but facing Value Error.

I follow the pix2struct notebook as suggested in Deplot Code.

I have successfully trained pix2struct-base models using the same data format (image and text) without encountering any issues. However, I face this particular problem when training the “Deplot” model.

My Dataset format:

features: [‘image’, ‘text’],
num_rows: 14289

The code below displays “True”, meaning the format is correct.

print(isinstance(dataset[0][‘image’], Image.Image))

Code I used:

from import Dataset, DataLoader


class ImageCaptioningDataset(Dataset):
def init(self, dataset, processor):
self.dataset = dataset
self.processor = processor

def __len__(self):
    return len(self.dataset)

def __getitem__(self, idx):
    item = self.dataset[idx]
    encoding = self.processor(images=item["image"], text="Generate underlying data table of the figure below:", return_tensors="pt", add_special_tokens=True, max_patches=MAX_PATCHES)
    encoding = {k:v.squeeze() for k,v in encoding.items()}
    encoding["text"] = item["text"]
    return encoding

from transformers import AutoProcessor, Pix2StructForConditionalGeneration

processor = AutoProcessor.from_pretrained(“google/deplot”)
model = Pix2StructForConditionalGeneration.from_pretrained(“google/deplot”)

import torch

def collator(batch):
new_batch = {“flattened_patches”:, “attention_mask”:}
texts = [item[“text”] for item in batch]

text_inputs = processor(text=texts, padding="max_length", truncation=True, return_tensors="pt", add_special_tokens=True, max_length=512)

new_batch["labels"] = text_inputs.input_ids

for item in batch:

new_batch["flattened_patches"] = torch.stack(new_batch["flattened_patches"])
new_batch["attention_mask"] = torch.stack(new_batch["attention_mask"])

return new_batch

train_dataset = ImageCaptioningDataset(dataset, processor)
train_dataloader = DataLoader(train_dataset, shuffle=True, batch_size=2, collate_fn=collator)

import torch
from transformers.optimization import Adafactor, get_cosine_schedule_with_warmup
import os

EPOCHS = 5000

optimizer = Adafactor(model.parameters(), scale_parameter=False, relative_step=False, lr=0.01, weight_decay=1e-05)
scheduler = get_cosine_schedule_with_warmup(optimizer, num_warmup_steps=1000, num_training_steps=40000)

device = torch.device(“cuda:2”) if torch.cuda.is_available() else “cpu”


for epoch in range(EPOCHS):
print(“Epoch:”, epoch)

for idx, batch in enumerate(train_dataloader): 
    labels = batch.pop("labels").to(device)
    flattened_patches = batch.pop("flattened_patches").to(device)
    attention_mask = batch.pop("attention_mask").to(device)

    outputs = model(flattened_patches=flattened_patches,
    loss = outputs.loss

    print("Loss:", loss.item())


    scheduler.step()  # Update the learning rate scheduler

    if (epoch + 1) % 20 == 0:

        predictions = model.generate(flattened_patches=flattened_patches, attention_mask=attention_mask)        
        print("Predictions:", processor.batch_decode(predictions, skip_special_tokens=True))

Same question here! My guess is that since our new deplot processor aggregates both the bert-tokenizer processor and the pix2struct processor, it requires ‘images=’ parameter as used in the getitem method from the Dataset class but I have no idea what the images should be in the collator function

This pointed me towards a solution.

When running from the notebook, images and text are processed separately, images in ImageCaptioningDataset.__call__ and text in collator. Therefore processor does not get an image input when processing the text. However, since processor.image_processor.is_vqa is True, it expects an image.

In processor, the input should be treated as text only, but the conditional evaluates to False due to is_vqa, and self.image_processor(images, ...) gets called with None, causing the error message.

You can do a quick fix by setting processor.image_processor.is_vqa = False before iterating the dataloader.

Thank you, It worked :+1:

But from my understanding, the deplot pretraining render the input text “generate the underlying data” as a header to the input images. If we pass the processor.image_processor.is_vqa = False, the image wouldn’t get preprocessed correctly since the render_header will not be called. Therefore, leading to the incorrect result of input process.

So, I don’t think this is a proper solution. Still exploring the correct solutions, will post later

The problem is caused when is_vqa is set to true, they use the pix2struct image processor automatically which requires an image input.

Normally, when the processor input doesn’t include an image, it automatically switch back to a simple text tokenizer from image processor, however when is_vqa is set to true in pix2struct auto processor, seems this automatically handling doesn’t work, the processor stick to image processor even your input is text only. Therefore, a simple solution is to use the tokenizer from processor by processor.tokenizer when you would like to tokenize the text inputs, which actually is the ground truth text for model’s output: text_inputs = processor.tokenizer(text=texts, padding="max_length", return_tensors="pt", add_special_tokens=True, max_length=20)

I made some change to the dataset and collator as following, which works correctly:

class ChartParametersDataset(Dataset):
    def __init__(self, data_root) -> None:
    def __len__(self):
        return len(...)
    def __getitem__(self, idx):
        img ='yourimagehere.jpg').convert("RGB")
        prompt = "Generate underlying data table of the figure below:"
        text = "your ground truth output text"
        inputs = {
        return inputs

processor = AutoProcessor.from_pretrained("google/deplot")
model = Pix2StructForConditionalGeneration.from_pretrained("google/deplot")

def collator(batch):
    new_batch = {"flattened_patches":[], "attention_mask":[]}
    texts = [item["text"] for item in batch]
    images = [item["image"] for item in batch]
    prompts = [item["prompt"] for item in batch]
    text_inputs = processor.tokenizer(text=texts, padding="max_length", return_tensors="pt", add_special_tokens=True, max_length=20)
    new_batch["labels"] = text_inputs.input_ids
    encoding = processor(images=images, text=prompts,
                         return_tensors="pt", add_special_tokens=True, 


    new_batch["flattened_patches"] = encoding["flattened_patches"]
    new_batch["attention_mask"] = encoding["attention_mask"]

    return new_batch
