One of the great joys of having generative art (Stable Diffusion here) is that I never have to explain to a human artist what weird combination of circumstances needs me to commission "dragon sleeping on a bed of credit cards." t.co/K2hVRHaO5O

If I just get a weeeeeee bit more time-efficient at prompt engineering I think I can replace my usual workflow for finding Twitter card illustrations for essays, which is "Search for royalty free stock images and sigh as I have to click past all the ones with a brand visible."

"Why do you have to click past the ones with a brand visible?" Because no matter how many disclaimers I put on things there is someone in capitalism whose job it is to care keenly about every time their competitor's logo gets put into any sort of marketing artifact of a partner.

"But stock art artists clearly know that this is a constraint and they carefully choose angles to avoid showing e.g. credit card brands, right." Yes, but not all of them are as aware that the trade dress of various credit card readers is instantly perceptible by many people.
