Shutterstock and Open AI announced a partnership to integrate its DALL-E 2 AI program to generate images from a text description. Now, users of Shutterstock's online design platform Creative Flow will be able to generate images from text descriptions using a DALL-E 2-based tool.

The ability to license AI-generated images is a major feature of the new tool, which appears to be unnamed. One of Shutterstock's biggest competitors, Getty Images, is currently suing images created with Stability AI's Stable Diffusion Generative Algorithm. The reason for the lawsuit was the ability by developers to train their algorithms of images hosted on the Getty Images platform.
With this move, the Shutterstock service is putting itself in opposition to Getty Images, which is well-known for its content authors who are dissatisfied with the fact that their work is being trained by generative neural networks. Microsoft invested $1 billion in Open AI in 2019, and recently announced plans to invest billions more.
Shutterstock has announced a partnership with Meta* Platforms, the parent company of Facebook*, Instagram*, and WhatsApp, which will use Shutterstock's photo and media libraries to train its own AI algorithms. Ultimately, we can anticipate the development of new algorithms based on generative neural networks.
