Fake images cause damage! We will now show them all to you!

I think it's more that the pictures being represented as real is what's damaging though...

Adobe Stock Contributor. Someone, as a contributor, listed these photos to earn a commission for sales for photo content they say is theirs and own the copyright for.

It’s a decent side hustle but I’d never upload AI crap.

Not great, but also not really Adobe's fault. Journalists using them are the problem. Back when the fakenews of Israel hitting that hospital with 500 dead went around there were plenty of news article that just had regular stock images from other completely unrelated bombings in the articles, which did nothing more than misguide the reader. That's the kind of stuff that really shouldn't be acceptable, but happens all to often.

The media needs much better standards when it comes to photos (e.g. include GPS coordinates and time so we can verify and cross check it easier). Just plastering stock images in articles, AI generated or not, is rarely helpful and often misleading.

Why does the most reasonable and balanced take have the most downvotes?

This is absolutely the journalists' fault. It doesn't matter if its AI-generated or not.

Because Adobe willingly selling these images is incredibly dangerous and unethical.

Both Journalists and Adobe are at fault. And it doesn't surprise me that a company as shitty as Adobe is doing something like this, but we can at least try to hold them accountable.

As has been prophesized... and it's only starting.

Is it selling fake AI images? Or fake images made by AI?

Sigh...this is only going to make things even worse!

This is why Bidens recent executive order is so important.
