In a surprising U-turn, Getty Images has launched its own AI image generator, following months of staunch opposition to AI imagery. The service, aptly named 'Generative AI by Getty Images', is exclusively trained on Getty's extensive image library, making it the last major photo stock library to introduce its own AI image generator.

What sets Getty's AI generator apart is its "commercially safe" model, powered by NVIDIA and trained exclusively on Getty Images' high-quality creative content and data. Despite the recent criticism of AI tools by Getty, the company assures that the images generated and licensed through their AI tool are backed by their uncapped indemnification, emphasizing their commitment to copyright protection.

Does Getty's shift to AI threaten photographers' livelihood?

The DJI Mini 4 Pro, a game-changer in the <250g drone category, is now offering filmmakers unprecedented capabilities. The drone features 360Β° obstacle detection, 4K video at 100fps in 10-bit, and a new 48-megapixel CMOS sensor, ensuring crisp visuals. Unique features such as "dual native ISO fusion" offer maximum dynamic range and smooth slow-motion shooting modes. Its 20-mile transmission range enhances reliability at shorter distances, despite visual line-of-sight limitations.

In screenwriting, crafting captivating characters requires an understanding of internal and external conflicts. Internal conflicts occur within a character, like fear or indecision, while external conflicts involve physical obstacles or antagonistic characters. A well-rounded character experiences both, with each conflict type feeding off the other to add depth to the narrative. It's crucial to place a character with suitable internal conflict in an apt external conflict. For instance, a character struggling with trust issues might face an external conflict where trust is pivotal. By playing with these elements, writers can create more engaging and dynamic stories.
