Wacom Yuify - the new 'anti-AI' platform - is in open beta

We covered the Wacom Yuify following our meeting with Wacom CEO Nobutaka Ide at The VFX Festival in London. This new blockchain platform from Wacom is designed to protect and record ownership of artists' work permanently and can even set up rights and licences. Basically, if you're art is used by an AI you can trace it and monetise it, which should see more cautious use of art found online.

The big news is Wacom Yuify can now be used by everyone as it's just launched in open beta. The platform is already available as a plugin for Photoshop, now supports Celsys’ Clip Studio Paint and Rebelle, which are becoming more popular ever since Adobe AI tools were added to digital art apps like Photoshop. (Read our best Clip Studio Paint tutorials to get up to speed with this painting app.)
