What is CF Spark and how do I use it?
Now you can create any image you can imagine and use it for your crafting projects. Spark your imagination with CF Spark by creating graphics based on a written description (also called a prompt) of what you would like to see. These creations are generated using Artificial Intelligence and are all one-of-a-kind.
On the Spark Create page you can try out different prompts until you find an image that you like, simply type what you’re imagining into the field and click the ignite button. If you need inspiration, make sure to check out the prompts used for creations by other creators and use the Prompt Book to find some fun examples. It creates different images for each of your prompts so you can choose your favorite ones. Please ensure you read and follow the Terms & Conditions before you start creating.
All Access Subscription & Speed Credits
With the All Access Subscription you get unlimited speed credits. These speed credits will create your prompts faster. Each time you add a prompt, CF Spark starts drawing. This costs quite a lot of computer power and there is only limited available. The speed credits allow you to jump the queue and will offer the fastest creation. Also, you can add multiple creations in the queue at the same time.
When you have the All Access Subscription you can also download your own creations, they come with the Spark license that allows you to use your images however you like.
If you don't want to pay you can use free credits. Right now free credits are unlimited, but you can only have 1 request in the queue and creation will be slower.
Can I earn with CF Spark?
Yes, with the Spark license you can monetise your creations by reselling, sub-licensing, sharing or (re)distributing any of the digital files you created, selling digital or physical end products featuring your creations or using them on Print-on-Demand (POD) sites. You can use your creations however you like!
Downloading your Spark creations
Click publish on the image you want to turn into a product on Creative Fabrica to download. When you open your creation, you'll see you are featured as the creator on the product page! You can download it with your All Access subscription or using coins. Other crafters can also download your design with the All Access subscription or using coins.
Can I remove my creations?
Yes! Simply go to the page of the creation you want to remove. In the right sidebar you will find the option to remove your listing when scroll down on the page.
Can I make my creations hidden?
With the All Access subscription you can generate private downloads of your creations in 4K without publishing them to the community. This way your creations is only available to you, which is great if you intend to use it commercially! All of your hidden creations are available on the My Private Downloads page.
My Creation is hanging, what should I do?
Sometimes it can look like your image takes forever to render. This happens when a prompt is blocked. Prompts can be blocked when they are seen as unsafe.
For example the prompts “A small girl riding a bike” will be seen as unsafe, even when it is clearly not for the human eye. However, we want to avoid misuse of the technology so when prompts involve children or racial slurs the tool will block it.
Images turn out blurry, how do I fix them?
If an image is shown blurry, this is because the AI thinks it is unsafe. This might not always be the right decision, but right now we prefer to choose the safe route. We will be fine-tuning this in the future.
Are images copyrighted?
CF Spark generates images completely through AI. This means it is never based on 1 image. Just like a human, when you draw something you refer to how something looks in your memory. If you would draw the Eiffel tower, you would either remember how it looks because you’ve seen it in a picture or in real life, or you have a picture with how it looks.
The AI works the same. We showed it many pictures of the Eiffel tower and told it that this is the Eiffel tower. This means that it is able to draw from scratch the Eiffel tower. Sometimes the images are not good quality or contain polluted data. This can cause bad results and we are working on improving that.
We used the free public data set LAION
How can I change the ratio of an image?
Between the text field where you write your prompt and the ignite button you’ll find a dropdown in which you can choose the ratio.
By default the selected ratio is 1:1 and makes a square image. You can also choose from three portrait style ratios; 9:16 is the ratio used for smartphones and is a great size for images you intend to use on social media posts, 2:3 and 4:5 are ratios commonly used for art prints. There are two landscape ratios, 16:9 is the ratio that works for smartphones in landscape mode and 3:2 is a common ratio for printing landscape style artworks.
Images are cut off, how do I fix this?
We are experimenting to improve this. We would advise you to add certain texts to your prompts such as “full portrait” or “show full face” or other prompts along those lines.
How do I change my name and avatar on my creations?
To update the name that appears on your creations and your profile, visit the edit my profile section of your account page and adjust the first and or last name. From here you can also upload your own profile image. Please note that it may take some time for these changes to reflect on Creative Fabrica, these updates will be performed in the background.
