A Quick Intro to AI-Generated Art

AI has taken the world by storm, and major tech companies are increasingly incorporating elements of the technology into their flagship products. Adobe has introduced Generative AI in Photoshop allowing users to replace parts of their image with AI through a simple text prompt. AI art generators are a major component of the wave of new AI technology as users can now create “art” simply by typing anything they can think of. The resulting imagery ranges from truly bizarre interpretations to incredibly composed masterpieces, a sign of the clear potential for the future of AI art.

How Do AI Art Generators Work?

To help understand how AI art generators work, imagine you want to create artwork of a serene landscape. You describe your vision for this landscape in a text prompt like: “A calm lake with mountains in the background under a bright sunset in the style of a traditional oil painting.” The AI generator processes this text and matches it with its vast database of images and patterns, learning from millions of examples. It analyzes the prompt to understand the scene you envision, and then uses its trained neural network to piece together a unique image that matches your description.

The AI generator isn’t simply copying existing images, it creates original artwork by blending elements from its learned database. Complex algorithms capture the essence of a landscape and create a unique interpretation of your prompt. This creative process can involve multiple iterations, adjusting, and refining based on the generator’s understanding, ultimately producing an original and vibrant depiction of the scene you imagined.

Some popular generators to do this include DALL-E 2, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, and DeepDream.

Can You Sell AI-Generated Art?

Yes, you can sell AI-generated art, which has gained acceptance in art communities and commercial markets thanks to the advancements in AI technology. AI art generators are tools that enhance the capabilities of artists, enabling them to experiment and expand their creative possibilities. However, it is important to note AI art cannot be copyrighted and it’s important to be transparent to your customers about if your art was created using AI.

These generators allow artists to quickly create detailed artworks as well as bring ideas or concepts to life as a starting point for more complex pieces. This accelerates the creation process and enables them to produce and sell more works of art. This efficiency helps artists to meet market demand more effectively, making AI art generators a valuable addition to the artist’s toolkit. Whether used for initial mockups or final art pieces, AI-generated art opens new opportunities for artists, allowing them to explore innovative avenues and expand their offerings in various art markets.

Where To Sell AI Art?

The best place to sell AI art depends on your target audience. Individuals and businesses can sell AI art on traditional platforms like Shopify, Etsy, and Amazon, where different audiences may prefer to shop. Some AI art might sell better on Etsy, while others may thrive on platforms like Instagram or through retail locations. Dedicated websites like AI Art Shop have emerged, providing specialized platforms for selling AI-generated art.

AI Image Upscaling

When selling AI art, you should work with high-resolution print files to maintain high quality through the print process. Current AI art generators have a limitation of low resolutions 1024px x 1024px. AI can also help increase print resolution through AI image upscalers such as Topaz Gigapixel AI or Let’s Enhance. These tools use artificial intelligence to enhance the resolution of artwork files by 2x, 4x, or more while maintaining the detail and sharpness of the image by correctly filling in pixels where required. This allows creatives to sell AI art at larger print sizes while keeping the pictures high quality.
