Adobe Stock To Start Selling AI-Generated Images

Adobe will allow uploading and selling generative AI artwork on its stock images service but only as long as it meets certain criteria.

Adobe has revealed that it's opening its stock images service, Adobe Stock, to images generated by AI-powered text-to-image services such as DALL-E and Stable Diffusion.

As reported by Axios, the company said it will now be accepting creations submitted by artists who used AI to generate the images on the same terms as other works. However, those images should be labeled as generated by AI and creators will be required to affirm they have proper rights to the works they submit.

Axios noted that Adobe has already started testing such images prior to the announcement and was "pleasantly surprised" by this new integration. "It meets our quality standards and it has been performing well," said Adobe senior director Sarah Casillas.

Earlier, the provider of stock images Shutterstock announced that it has extended its partnership with OpenAI to integrate the AI lab's text-to-image model DALL-E 2 into the platform. At the same time, the company noted that it will be banning the sale of AI images that were not generated using the DALL-E integration.

However, there are other companies that have a more conservative stance on selling AI-generated art – for instance, another supplier of stock images, Getty Images, banned the upload and sale of creations generated by AI, citing concerns about the legality of such content. Other user-generated content platforms, including Newgrounds, PurplePort, and FurAffinity, also made similar decisions earlier.
