2. Brief

Searching for the perfect stock photo can be a pain. Free stock photo sites like Unsplash are great, but they may not always have the exact photo you need, or the photos might be too generic and used by everyone. But what if you could create your own stock photos with AI?

Using AI to create your own stock photos is a great way to make sure you have the perfect photo for your blog or website. With AI, you can create photos that are unique and that nobody else has. It’s also much quicker than searching for stock photos and licensing them.

To get started, you’ll need to find a photo that’s similar to what you’re looking for on a stock photo site. For example, if you’re looking for a photo of people in a business meeting, you can search for that on Unsplash. Once you’ve found the photo you like, you’ll need to write a prompt for the AI. This should include the basics of the photo you’re looking for, like the number of people, what they’re doing, and the type of camera you want to use.

Once you’ve written your prompt, you can then use an AI-driven photo editing tool to create your own stock photo. These tools allow you to change the photo’s elements, such as color, saturation, and brightness, until you get the perfect photo. You can also add effects and filters to make the photo more unique.

Another way to create your own stock photos with AI is to “scrape” a photo from a stock photo site. This means you’ll copy the photo’s URL and use it as the base image for your AI-generated photo. This can be a bit of a grey area as it’s not clear if this is allowed or not. It’s best to use your good judgment when scraping photos and make sure you modify the photo enough to make it your own.

Once you’ve created your own stock photo with AI, you can use it on your blog or website without worrying about attribution or licensing. You also don’t need to worry about using a stock photo that’s too generic or seen everywhere.

Creating your own stock photos with AI is a great way to make sure you have unique photos for your blog or website. It’s also much faster than searching for stock photos and licensing them. Just remember to use your good judgment when scraping photos and be sure to make the photos your own so you don’t infringe on someone else’s copyright. With AI, you can make stock photos that are unique and perfect for your needs.
