FuriousFotog does not use AI-generated (aka machine-generated) artwork when creating premade or custom covers. However, I am capable of replicating those artistic styles, if desired by Clients.
Furious Fotog does not accept Client-provided artwork that is 100% generated by systems such as Midjourney, DALL-E, Craiyon, Stable Diffusion, etc.
Furious Fotog does use several AI-powered tools in its workflows and Toolkit service, such as but not limited to Topaz Labs Sharpen AI, Topaz Labs Gigapixel AI, Anthropics Portrait Pro, and Photoshop's Neural Filters.
In keeping with this brand's Visions, Values, and Ethics, it is important for Furious Fotog to support others in the community of creatives. It is my view that the use of 100% machine-generated (AI) images is not something that helps our community despite being a remarkable and incredible breakthrough.
While using such systems enables everyone to participate in generating art, it is Furious Fotog's view that something is lost in translation when the human element is not present during the actual creation process. For there to be meaning (or lack thereof) in a piece there is a requirement of emotion, feeling, and life experiences - something that cannot be found in an algorithm made to replicate a line of text into a coalesced collection of stabilized noise meant to look like elements of images fed into the system (improperly licensed images, too, I might add, otherwise the tools would be unable to create copyrighted output or think watermarks and artist signatures are required). Also, frankly, generating images in this manner requires no investment in skill or time, despite claims that prompts are well-crafted, the results are still randomized results of an algorithm that has zero human decision-making.
Therefore, Furious Fotog does not use 100% machine-generated artwork in its design process nor do I accept images like this for use in design. There must be some element of human manipulation that transforms the direct output into something greater.
There are many other artists you can choose to use for your covers if you wish to use such imagery.
