Adobe Creates Guidelines for Submission of AI-Generated Content to Adobe Stock

Artificial intelligence can handle anything these days, including creating entire scenes out of thin air.

And with such capabilities comes a new debate about what constitutes original work and how AI-generated content should be treated in archives like Adobe Stock.

Now, as you can imagine, this is all a relatively new field and one that we’ve covered extensively over the past year.

With that in mind, Adobe took a sizeable step forward and codified guidelines around AI-generated content that should make this clearer in the future, including disclosing labels that differentiate AI-generated submissions from photography as well as “digital sourcing technologies” to help identify authors. from a work.

According to their blog post on the subject, many guidelines are for AI generated content and the standard fare is pretty much the same including the need for release when human subjects are shown etc.

However, Adobe does offer one interesting stipulation that is worth mentioning, and that is that Adobe Stock “prohibits submissions based on third-party content — including hints of text that make reference to a person, place, property, or artist style — without proper authorization.”

In other words, you can’t simply copy someone else’s unique style and call it your own or generally violate someone’s rights. When you consider some of the tools we’ve covered in this blog use nothing but text to generate images, it’s easier than most of us might think to get past this limit. Adobe also underlines that they believe, when properly labeled and when it fits their other guidelines, AI-generated content has a place alongside other stock media which is probably the bigger story here.
