Be Careful Out There
2023-11-15

Here is a very different kind of blog post. A warning, or something like that.

We need to talk about something really weird that’s happening on facebook. Recently there has been a huge spike in random “pages” posting AI generated images of a person and art with stupid captions like “my wife made this wooden owl with his own hand, appreciate it” or “my son made this and no one likes it, please like” and then, because most people are fucking stupid, the image gets literally thousands of likes and shares, along with boomer comments like “amazing talent” and stuff (sorry, not sorry, because most of the commenters are boomers). Here are a few I collected in the last 48 hours.

Now, it seems harmless, but why would “Life Is Beautiful” or “Garden Flowers” or “Love Dogs” take the time to post awful AI images just for some likes? It doesn’t add up to me. Maybe I am overthinking things, but I feel like this could be either a simple way to gather a list of names and profiles of very gullible people to later scam out of money or passwords – or even darker, what if something like this was a big bait-and-switch plan, and when the US election season heats up “Love Dogs” becomes “Vote Freedom” or something and starts spreading political misinformation or even worst, false political AI images. Again, I don’t know, but it’s freakin’ weird and nothing can be done about it because Facebook is a runaway monster. I hope I am just paranoid, but you never know.

Anyway, be careful out there. Don’t accept everything as truth, and always look at images very closely to make sure they are not fake. Question everything, because as I see it, this is only the beginning.

Joseph Niépce’s Chickens

Most photographers out there are well aware of the grainy black and white image taken by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, famously known as the first photograph. What is lesser known (and not true at all, completely made up for the sake of humor) is that the image is not...

Photoshop Generative Fill

Adobe just released a new Beta update adding an amazingly powerful tool to Photoshop called Generative Fill - and I stayed up way too late playing with it. I was actually shocked at the quality of the Firefly AI, but also the speed and ease of use. You just make a...
