In this brave new world with AI generation (which I love, but am cautious about) I have become a little skittish about others taking my images and using the online URL as an image source for prompting. Just prompting my own name resulted in images crazy close to what I make!
I was mulling this over this weekend and decided my IG strategy should be sharing reels--videos on other platforms. That way I can add visual effects that make it more difficult for others to grab images. Thoughts? Would this work? Am I missing something? For what it's worth, I am having a blast inputting my own images into Midjourney to see what the AI world can do with them.
This is the Wild West of image creation right now. I am trying to create a plan for sharing and yet protecting my work moving forward.
I have seen a few images of yours with the candle flames and it stopped me in my tracks! VERY cool!
In terms of videos vs. stills to prevent image theft, I think in theory it makes sense. I also think there are ways around it and that if people want it badly enough, they will figure out a way. (Hold to pause the video, then screenshot?)
Wild West is the perfect analogy....
