Adobe accepts AI-generated stock art that can be put in the bin
Adobe used to be known as the company that created Acrobat and PhotoShop. However, Addobe is increasingly known as one of the great digital tools of modern times.
from it shonky subscription model arrive get people to pay for certain colors in PhotoShop (Also Pantone is working in a decision made “together”), the company, like so many others in these tumultuous times, is more concerned with growing its profits at any cost than taking a moment to consider the needs of its customers. use or consequences of their actions.
I’m bringing this up today because, a week after forcing people to check if they read Onion story when learning about color thingThe company has announced that it is embracing the art of AI, which is not only a huge undertaking, but also a serious threat to the livelihoods of artists large and small around the world.
I have already made it very clear how I feel about AI on this website—I wrote this feature in August to interview a wide range of artists in the entertainment and video game industries—and think that’s bad not only because it’s a threat to artists but to art. While everyone’s work is of course important, we’re not just talking about cottonseed here, and In many ways this is the division of labor vs capital; we are talking about a process that encroaches on basic human pastimes and creative pursuits.
Machines do not make art. They are machines! They’re just making an approximate casserole from human artwork that’s been included, in a large number of cases without credit or compensation. Like Dan Sheehan says in his wonderful piece Art in the age of optimizationit is merely “a technology that clearly exists to remove the human element from the process of artistic expression”.

Anyway! Last week Adobe dropped an announcement says that AI-generated art will be made available as part of the company’s massive archived image library, going as far as to say the field is “amplifying human creativity”. The company boldly says over and over that it has “carefully considered these questions and implemented a new submission policy that we believe will ensure our content uses AI technology responsibly.” by creators as well as customers” and that “Creative AI is a big step forward for creators, leveraging the incredible power of machine learning to think faster by developing visuals using using words, sketches and gestures”.
Creator? Get out! These people do not create anything! They were typing words into a loaded computer really Art! And even if Adobe could, as they claim, only release images that have been “properly constructed, used, and disclosed”, that would still be bad! OH! Try to do well one about AI art problems—artwork theft—doesn’t solve this problem with its other problems, such as the fact that these images or their creations have nothing to do with to art!
Of course, the reaction among artists has been as overwhelmingly negative as any other AI art announcement of the past six months, with some criticizing the company while others resorting to traditional appeals. more: namely, the artists simply pirated PhotoShop instead of paying a dime more to the company.
