Demand Adobe stop selling AI-generated images of war and conflict immediately

Adobe is selling AI-generated images of the Israel-Gaza war, and it's not just irresponsible — it's downright dangerous. Business Insider recently reported that images of "war-torn streets, explosions, soldiers, tanks, and buildings on fire, and children standing in rubble" from Adobe Stock — all fake — are being used across the internet.

It gets worse: "It's unclear whether those who used the AI-generated image on their websites or in their social media posts were aware that it isn't a real photo."

We've witnessed untold horrors over the past two months, and with violence increasing we need to do all we can to safeguard people's lives. AI-generated images of war have incredible potential to fuel misinformation, inflame tensions, and erase the very real human suffering that people are experiencing.

Days ago, in the face of critical media coverage, Adobe admitted that it needed to do more to rein in and curb the potential for misinformation and harm by updating its submission and usage policies for AI-generated photos. It's a positive step forward, but it's still not enough.

Adobe's willingness to profit from such misleading content is disgraceful. No matter how they tweak and change their guidelines, Adobe can never control how these images are used after the point of sale. The good news? There's one clear way Adobe can fully avoid complicity in ANY disinformation — and the way to do it is to stop selling AI-generated images of war now.

Send Adobe Systems CEO Shantanu Narayen a letter today to demand Adobe stop selling AI-generated images of war and conflict immediately.
To Shantanu Narayen, Adobe Systems CEO:

I am writing to express my deep concern and disappointment regarding Adobe Stock's sale of AI-generated images depicting the Israel-Gaza war. Adobe should stop selling these images immediately.

Adobe's sale of AI-generated images of war raises serious questions about its commitment to ethical standards in digital media. Multiple outlets, including Business Insider, The Washington Post, Petapixel, and more, have already reported on the risks these images pose. People sharing this content has the potential to blur the lines between reality and fiction — increasing misinformation, distorting public perception, and erasing the lived experiences of people on the ground.

I urge Adobe to end the sale of AI-generated images of war.

Thank you for your attention to this matter,
