All users of the art platform are able to sample DreamUp with up to five free prompts.
DeviantArt has joined the AI art space through the launch of its AI generator DreamUp(Opens in a new window). The online art community site has promised concerned creators that the AI will be “safe and fair” to their work, after initially prompting backlash for the move.
In an attempt to allay artists’ fears that their work could be replicated or used by the generator to produce images in their style, the website is giving creators the ability to choose(Opens in a new window) whether or not the tool can use their art for direct inspiration. 
In addition, the site is giving them the power to choose to allow their work to be used in datasets that train third-party AI models, Engadget report.
If content creators on the site do not want AI datasets to use their work, they are requested to add a “noai” flag to their creations, which informs AI to ignore their work.
In its announcement(Opens in a new window), the website said: “DeviantArt encourages other creator platforms to adopt this approach in order to ensure artists remain able to share their work with online audiences while retaining control over non-human usage.”
DreamUp is included in the art site’s paid Core subscription plans, but all users are able to sample it with up to five free prompts. DeviantArt’s paid plans range in price from $3.95 to $14.95 a month.
AI art generators have attracted headlines for producing art that has even won awards(Opens in a new window). A particularly popular AI is Dall-E(Opens in a new window), which can create as many as two million images from text per day alone.
