AI Generated Art


Welcome to the world of artificial intelligence!

“ A very wide range of unique and creative artworks created using AI algorithms is now available to you ”

To help you better understand this new technology, and to provide you with sufficient information (so that you can make an enlightened choice regarding the purchase of products generated by artificial intelligence), we thought we would create this informative page to be transparent as much as possible with you.

- The Digital ScrapBook Shop has set up rules for designers who want to sell AI-generated art.

- Two of them consist of having a paid plan/subscription with an AI site (and that the sale of the generated images is authorized) + designers must clearly indicate in the description of their products in store if any of their designs includes one or many AI generated elements, papers and/or tubes.

We believe that AI-generated art is an important and growing field, and we want to provide you with the opportunity to discover and purchase these innovative artworks.

* We reserves the right to change these conditions/terms to adjust to any new changes and/or law that may be made concerning AI in general.

- What Is AI Generated Art?
AI generated art refers to artwork that is created using artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, such as machine learning or neural networks (designed to recognize patterns in data). These algorithms are trained on data sets of images, and then used to generate new pieces that are similar in style or subject matter, through text prompts. The use of AI algorithms in art allows for the creation of unique and creative artworks that would be difficult or impossible to create using traditional methods.
- What does "AI" art mean?
In general, AI (artificial intelligence) art is created by feeding data (prompts) and algorithms into a computer, the output is a new artwork that could be in the same style, genre or theme as the input data, but with variations that make it unique and new.
- How is AI art done?
First, the text description is ‘mapped’ onto a representational space (think of it as a conceptual canvas; it doesn’t exist anywhere). Then your text is compared with massive amounts of captions and Alt Text for collated images that correspond to the semantic elements in the prompt text.
All this information has been encoded; it’s no longer the original in any form. Think of this like compost; once it’s all decomposed and disintegrated, you can’t tell any one leaf from any other. Or like coke bottles in a recycling plant.
Next, it goes through a diffusion process (yes, like in thermodynamics) that adds noise and then reduces it, effectively decomposing the images in pure Gaussian noise. This is the messy part.
The AI generator then reverse engineers from this slush and overlays it onto the initial representational mapping from the text description. The decoder stochastically reassembles these embeddings into something recognisable.
Finally, it uses additional textual information to assess whether what it assembled is semantically consistent with the input.
The variations in this reassembling process mean that not only is the image not an exact reconstruction of the source material but also that you never get the same image twice.
So the output is entirely original, in terms of both content and form.

- Who can use AI art?
These creative AI tools can be used by anyone.  There are also many tutorials and resources available online to help individuals get started with creating their own AI-generated art.
- Can AI generated art be sold?
Yes, AI generated art can be sold, just like any other artwork. However, the legal and financial aspects of selling AI generated art can be complex.
One issue is determining authorship and ownership of AI generated art. Since the art is created by an algorithm, the question of who owns the rights to the artwork can be a point of contention. This issue is not yet fully resolved by law, but some artists and organizations have tried to establish clear terms of authorship and ownership for their AI generated artworks.
Another issue is determining the value of AI generated art. Since AI generated art is often created using algorithms that can generate an almost infinite number of variations, it can be difficult to establish a unique value for each piece.
Despite these challenges, some AI generated artworks have been sold at high prices, and some artists and galleries have had success in selling and exhibiting AI generated art. As the field of AI art continues to evolve, it is likely that more legal and financial frameworks will be established to facilitate the sale and distribution of AI generated art.
- Does the final image created with an AI tool belong to you?
Whether or not the final image created with an AI tool belongs to you depends on the specific circumstances and the terms of use for the tool or algorithm that you used to create the image. It's important to review the terms of use for any AI tools or algorithms that you use and understand any limitations or requirements for using the images that they generate.
In general, if you created an AI algorithm yourself and you own the rights to that algorithm, then you would likely own the rights to any images that the algorithm generates. However, if you used a pre-existing AI tool or algorithm that is owned by someone else, then the terms of use for that tool or algorithm may dictate who owns the rights to the images that it generates (see line above depending of the rules of the site you use).
For example, if you use an open-source AI tool that is freely available to the public, the images generated with it may be considered open source as well, and anyone could use it freely. However, if you use a proprietary AI tool that you have licensed from a company, the terms of that license agreement would dictate how you can use the images generated by the tool.
- Who owns the image rights made by AI?
The ownership of the image rights made by AI can be a complex issue, as it depends on a number of factors such as the specific AI algorithm used, the terms of use of that algorithm, the originality of the image, and the laws of the jurisdiction in which the image is created and used.
For now, Europe and America do not have clear regulations on this, but it will probably come. In the meantime, the AI sites currently determine the rules, so copyright or no copyright, depending on what you want to pay or not. But in fact, if you use a free or trial account with an AI site, you are granted a Commons Noncommercial 4.0 Attribution International License. This simply means that you can use the images, as long as you don’t sell them or make money off them and as long as you give credit (“attribution”) to the AI site you used. If you are a paid member, then you own all assets you create, meaning you can use them for commercial purposes.
But again always read the terms of use of the site where you are creating your AI artwork.
- Is AI art legal?
AI art is legal, but the legal status of AI-generated art can be complex. In general, AI-generated art is subject to the same laws and regulations as any other form of art or intellectual property. As the field of AI art continues to evolve, it is likely that more legal and financial frameworks will be established to facilitate the use and distribution of AI generated art.
- Where to start making you own AI art
There are many tutorials and resources available online to help you get started with creating your own AI-generated art. Below are some examples, and these are just a few ones.
Dream by Wombo site --- FAQ here
Night Cafe site--- FAQ here
Craiyon site --- FAQ here
- There are marketplaces like Etsy, Adobe Stock, Shutterstock etc. where some sellers are selling AI-generated artworks and where you can find artworks created by AI algorithms and also purchase them. It's also worth noting that the terms of use regarding AI-generated art on these marketplaces may change over time as the AI platforms/sites continues to evolve. So, It is best to always check the platforms/sites terms of use before buying or selling AI-generated art.
