ADOBE has announced the launch of a range of generative artificial intelligence (AI) features across its software, following months of testing. These features, which include the ability to generate images from text, have been incorporated into Adobe’s popular editing tools such as Photoshop, forming an integral part of the company’s Creative Cloud subscription software.
One of the key focuses for Adobe has been ensuring that the content generated by its AI systems is legally safe to use. To address this, Adobe has based its system on content that it either has rights to or is in the public domain. In order to further reassure its customers, the company is also offering a financial indemnity.
In addition to the introduction of AI features, Adobe has announced plans to increase the prices of many of its subscription products. Starting in November, prices are set to rise by $2 to $5 per month.
However, Adobe customers will receive a certain number of “credits” that can be used towards accessing the generative AI features. Once these credits have been exhausted, users can choose to purchase more credits or continue using the features at reduced speeds.
Furthermore, Adobe has committed to compensating the contributors to its stock imagery databases, whose work is used to train its AI systems. This year, Adobe will distribute a one-time “contributor” bonus to artists based on the number of images they have contributed to Adobe’s database and the number of times their images have been licensed through traditional means.
Subsequently, Adobe will continue to provide annual payouts to artists for their ongoing training work with the AI systems. This move aims to incentivize contributors to continue providing valuable content for the stock market and support the training of these AI models.
