Artists begin selling AI-generated artwork on stock photography websites

Looking for strategies for "monetizing" AI-generated artwork Some artists have submitted their AI-generated paintings to stock photography sites like Shutterstock. The search terms "AI produced" as well as "Midjourney" (a well-known image Synthesis service) yield hundreds of results on the website. In some instances, a small portion of the work that's not classified by the term "AI generated" is also evidently in Midjourney's style of art, which is the most used image synthesis tool available on the site right now. At the time of writing, the terms of use of Shutterstock permit the submission of AI-generated art. Shutterstock contributors earn a share of the licensing fees that range from 15 to 40 percent of the revenue Shutterstock earns out of the material. Ai generated artwork A recent video tutorial by Vanessa, a Canadian portrait photographer called Vanessa on YouTube, describes her method of looking for stock websites that would accept AI artworks created by Midjourney before choosing Shutterstock. Vanessa explained that she had to increase the resolution of the AI-generated artwork before submitting it since the majority of output from image synthesis currently isn't a high enough solution to meet the requirements of Shutterstock. AI generated artwork This is amidst a heated debate on the ethics of AI-assisted art in recent months. Certain artist groups are taking action against submissions overflowing their sites because they are generated virtually unlimitedly. While artists who embrace the latest AI techniques continue pushing their work into new and exciting directions, and the technology continues progressing unhindered. It's not a secret that image synthesis models such as Stable Diffusion have been trained partly through stock photography websites. However, with AI art being exhibited on websites such as Shutterstock and if the future AI models of images prepared on scraped pictures found on internet sources take their learning from work, The end of art could be highly recursive.
