Art portals have banned the works of image generators

More and more platforms prohibit the uploading of works created with artificial intelligence.

Artificial intelligence image generators like Dall-E caused the biggest craze of the summer and left users in awe. However, the first art sites have now banned works created by artificial intelligence image generators. American blogger Andy Baio collected the portals that made such a decision, but noted that the two most popular platforms, DeviantArt and ArtStation, have not yet responded, although calls to ban the affected works from their communities are growing louder.

In a particularly well-commented post on the DeviantArt forum, the platform was called on to do something about the phenomenon. The site has already been flooded with images created by artificial intelligence image generators and, as a countermeasure, the daily posts cap van need. Such photos banned it specifically banned by Newgrounds, Inkblot and Fur Affinity platforms.

Some of the statements pointed out that the artificial intelligence recordings are based on the creations of countless artists, with which the applied software was trained. Fur Affinity, for example written by, that it wants to support artists and their content, but AI content does not serve the interests of the community. Newgrounds takes a similar position represents, but allowed backgrounds from artificial intelligence – if specifically referenced. Inkblot on Twitter’s zero tolerance policy spoke against artificial intelligence works.


Image generators such as Midjourney, Dall-E or more recently Stable Diffusion create images based on textual guides. In recent months, a real frenzy has developed around such software. The results are of varying quality, but especially Midjourney and Stable Diffusion have been wowing the world wide web for weeks. A related debate about art reached the masses. However, since generators can also deceptively imitate photographs, there are signs that disinformation has become much easier again.

A few days ago, an image generated by artificial intelligence won an art competition in the United States of America, sparking a worldwide debate. There has been talk of the death of art, and now more arguments are being exchanged in the debate about artificial intelligence images appearing on art platforms. Perhaps the biggest concern is that image generators can create images in such large numbers and frequency that handmade creations get lost in the flood. This is one of the main criticisms in the discussion on DeviantArt. Others point out that the works come from the AI ​​used, not the uploader himself.

Another critique of AI art is likely to become increasingly important in the coming months, given the current frenzy: Even if it’s mostly unclear what kind of curriculum the algorithms and their works are based on, it’s becoming clear time and time again that among them are many works that , whose creators probably never consented to such use. Baio collected it, that millions of images in Stable Diffusion’s training material come from Pinterest, where images are aggregated from other sources. A broad copyright dispute over Midjourney and his peers seems inevitable, in part because the AI ​​technology is able to create images in the style of certain artists thanks to the curriculum.
