Shutterstock has expanded its partnership with AI lab OpenAI to sell stock images generated by the DALL-E 2 model.
Users will be able to create a picture directly in the service. The cost of the works generated by AI is not reported.
Shutterstock will also launch a Contributor Fund. It is designed to compensate artists whose work was used to train the AI model.
Funds will be credited every six months. The amount of compensation will be announced closer to the integration of the tool into Shutterstock.
The photo bank will also prohibit the sale of images created by other text generators.
“We recognize our great responsibility to embrace this evolution and ensure that generative technologies that drive innovation are based on ethical practices,” said Shutterstock CEO Paul Hennessy.
The head of OpenAI, Sam Altman, said that artificial intelligence is becoming an integral part of the creative and workflows of artists.
The launch of the integration of DALL-E 2 into the photo stock is planned “in the coming months.”
Shutterstock and OpenAI have been partnering since 2021. The photo bank sold images and metadata to the AI Lab to help build DALL-E.
Earlier, Shutterstock began to remove images created by artificial intelligence. Then the company did not comment on the situation, although the user agreement did not prohibit posting such content.
Recall that in September, Getty Images banned the placement of AI-generated content on the platform. The company attributed this to the risks associated with copyright infringement.
In October, OpenAI opened access to DALL-E 2 to everyone without a waiting list.
