Text-to-image synthesis is a challenging task that generates realistic images from a textual description. The description contains limited information compared with the corresponding image and is ambiguous and abstract, which will complicate the generation and lead to low-quality images. To address this problem, we propose a novel generation text-to-image synthesis method, called RiFeGAN2, to enrich the given description. To improve the enrichment quality while accelerating the enrichment process, RiFeGAN2 exploits a domain-specific constrained model to limit the search scope and then uses an attention-based caption matching model to refine the compatible candidate captions based on constrained prior knowledge. To improve the semantic consistency between the given description and the synthesized results, RiFeGAN2 employs improved SAEMs, SAEM2s, to compact better features of the retrieved captions and effectively emphasize the descriptions via incorporating centre-attention layers. Finally, multi-caption attentional GANs are exploited to synthesize images from those features. Experiments performed on widely-used datasets show that the models can generate vivid images from enriched captions and effectually improve the semantic consistency.
