How to Make Money with AI by Selling AI Art Prompts
Artificial intelligence is changing the world. While many will be losing their jobs soon, AI would be creating many more jobs. As of recent, a new profession of AI engineers came to light. AI experts can make money by generating AI prompts that help users with their problems.
What are AI prompts?
Ever tried creating AI images using the many free websites offering the facility? Your first few attempts would end up creating aliens if they look like creatures at all. Sometimes the hands are conjoined, and sometimes the legs are separated. While anyone can create prompts, getting the desired results is difficult.
One has to create both prompts and negative prompts to get the desired results. This may seem simple but one has to research a lot to get the desired result. Thus, a person creating AI content is called a “prompt engineer.”
What does an AI prompt look like?
Let us assume that we need to create an AI prompt for an image. The prompt/s would be as follows:
Positive prompt: A portrait of a man, fine - art photography, soft portrait shot 8 k, mid length, ultrarealistic uhd faces, unsplash, kodak ultra max 800, 85 mm, intricate, casual pose, centered symmetrical composition, stunning photos, masterpiece, grainy, centered composition
Negative prompt: blender, cropped, lowres, poorly drawn face, out of frame, poorly drawn hands, blurry, bad art, blurred, text, watermark, disfigured, deformed, closed eyes
If we ignored the negative prompts or limited the original prompts, AI would be at free will to decide how to create the image. But now, you could get a nearly realistic image.
Can you sell AI prompts? If yes, how and what can you earn?
While a few experts can create AI prompts and thus content through it, yet it is a difficult task. Thus, users buy AI prompts and modify the base for personal use. AI prompts can be sold for a few dollars per download. The benefit of downloading AI prompts is that AI art is finally being recognized by platforms and it is a cheap alternative to manually created art.
Now, since you earn a few dollars for creating art that needs hours, selling it can be profitable only if sold in numbers. Thus, AI engineers who create well-in-demand content earn a lot.
