    seems to be a disconnect in the expectations set up in this announcement and the reality of what people are actually using the product for.

      Haha indeed. Customer development in progress. Although planned as generative photography to replace Shutterstock, we've found three unexpected usages:

      1. For the lulz: memes, all flavors of absurd, incredibly creative ways of hinting sex, etc.
      2. Disassembling the collages for masked images
      3. Using https://photos.icons8.com/creator as a lightweight photo editor, sometimes without our photos at all.

      We are adding all three as a feature. Suggestions about the priorities? You're welcome here.
