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. Even Adobe has launched features for Photoshop that will allow users to replace parts of their image through AI with a simple text prompt. AI generated art is a big part of this wave of new technology as users can now create “art” simply by typing anything they can think of. The resulting imagery ranges from truly bizarre abominations to incredible masterpieces, a sign of the clear potential for the future of AI art.
How does it work? From JONDO, the newest member of the Sensaria family of brands:
Imagine if you wanted to create a bespoke coffee table. In a metaphorical sense, the AI generator takes all of the trees its system is fed, reduces them to sawdust, then makes a digital tree from this sawdust. This digital tree is then cut down and made into what the AI generator considers to be a “coffee table” based on what it has learned from information such as captions and alt text. It’s a diffusion process by which the generator sources imagery, breaks it down into raw content, and uses the resulting bytes and bits to assemble something wholly new and “original.” Some popular generators to do this include DALL-E 2, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, and DeepDream.
Increase Your POD Sales by Selling AI Art
AI art generators can accomplish some pretty amazing results, but it’s best to think of them as another tool for the artist or creator. It is they who ultimately makes the creative choices that will determine how the final image is composed. By thinking of AI art as a another tool to complement all the others, it can be used as part of one’s workflow to achieve new possibilities.
Whether used for mockups of ideas or generating the final art piece, AI art generators allow artists to create detailed pieces exponentially faster than before. They can iterate on different versions with small changes in between, thus allowing for larger bodies of work that can be made into AI canvas art or other photo products to sell to their audiences. Selling AI art opens up the amount of work that artists can create, freeing them from previous time constraints.
Where can you sell AI art? Individuals and businesses can look to traditional sites where art has been sold, including Shopify, Etsy, Amazon, retail locations, and others. Even some dedicated AI art marketplaces such as AI Art Shop are popping up to offer AI generated art for sale.
AI Image Upscaling
If you are looking into 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 be of assistance here through AI image upscalers such as Topaz Gigapixel AI or Let’s Enhance. These tools leverage artificial intelligence to increase the resolution of artwork files by 2x, 4x, and more while intelligently maintaining the detail and sharpness of the image, essentially smartly filling in pixels where required. This allows creatives to sell AI art at larger print sizes while keeping high quality.
