Adobe requires access to your creations

Adobe Photoshop's new Terms of Service require the right to access your work so the company can train its AI program.

Adobe, Photoshop

Those who work with Adobe's Photoshop were in for an unusual surprise this week. A new pop-up appeared when opening Photoshop notifying them of changes to the terms of service.

This in itself is not that unusual. Companies change their Terms of Service all the time, and just to bypass the pop-ups, you've probably agreed to all these texts lightly.

However, upon closer examination, artists working with Photoshop realized that Adobe was not simply changing one parameter of the license but was requesting the right to access the work produced by these programs for a myriad of purposes, including the education of artificial intelligence. intelligence.

Think of it as if Microsoft asked for permission to be able to read the texts you wrote in Word. The terms of service, as listed on the Adobe website, it appears that they have changed since February 17th of this year and that they apply to all Adobe applications.

However, the company pushed the warning pop-up to Photoshop users for the first time this week. Adobe's pop-up prevents creators from using Photoshop until they agree to the terms of service changes. Of course, designers are not happy about the new rules.

Sam Santala, founder of Songhorn Studios, posted on X comments which criticizes Adobe. The director Duncan Jones was equally angry. And X in general is full of creators making similar complaints to Adobe, with threats to abandon its products. The company does not yet appear to have commented on the situation.
