Mrrrky Posted May 14 Share Posted May 14 (edited) Let me add a few words in favor of AI images. When it comes to creating art, many people still cling to traditional techniques like photography and I really respect it, and love photography, but the only reason to short towards the AI is the cost of making images with a camera. To produce quality images I need to invest a few hundreds or thousands of dollars into my shoots and to pray it will sell, and to be into a plus at the end of the month, well that's hard. It's hard to see our images not selling even though we invested o lot of effort into it. However, using AI in art has several benefits over traditional methods. With AI, artists can create unique and innovative images that are not constrained by the limitations of photography. It's important to note that working with AI is not just about clicking buttons - it requires a lot of work and skill to achieve a desired result. Please try to make a realistic image of 10 people to look professional, it simply wont be sufficient just to generate it. You have to put a lot of hours into that one images to correct the mistakes of an AI. I will again emphasize the advantage of using AI. Traditional photography can be expensive, with the cost of cameras, lenses, and equipment adding up quickly. AI can be a cost-effective alternative that allows artists to create stunning works of art without breaking the bank. Also this a lot of reminds my of a battle between painters and photographers earlier in history when photography started to develop as a technique. Traditional painters hated the new technique since it was a lot easier and quicker to produce a portrait that the just paint with a brush. It's similar how photographers nowadays look at AI. You just input a text, and you have an image. But that is precisely one of the advantages. I really don't have the time to write all of this, but since people are somewhat banning AI art from Midjourney in saying, that in that way we are stealing other people images, I don't know what to say. Maybe precisely some of my images were used to create someones art, and I don't object to that. I for a fact know that people can quite easily steal in another way my images, and maybe they are doing that just because they cannot afford them, not because they want to harm me ad that is also ok. They haven't physically harmed me and no matter what we do, people will find a way to pirate our images no matter what we do. So saying that Midjourney is not ethical, maybe it isn't completely, but it is a lot more cost effective for us contributors. That's it, thanks for reading, I will try to reply to all of your thoughts. Edited May 14 by Mrrrky 2 4 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
