Getty Images, a renowned company that sells professional photographs, has introduced its new service called Generative AI by Getty Images. This service utilizes images from Getty Images’ internal library, while the artificial intelligence system known as NVIDIA Picasso is used in the process.
The images generated by this service maintain the same essence as regular Getty Images photos that are not sold as exclusives. However, it is important to note that these generated images will not be reused or sold through Getty Images or iStock. This service is available on their website and also offers the ability to generate images through an API.
One of the key selling points of this service is that Getty Images commits to paying copyright fees to the image owners used for training the AI system. However, specific details regarding the payment rates have not been disclosed.
In conclusion, Getty Images has ventured into the field of generative AI with the launch of their service. Customers can now access unique generated images while ensuring the original work of photographers remains protected.
