We have released new features addressing AI-generated work
October 31, 2022
Greetings from pixiv.

As previously stated, on October 31st, 2022, we have released a number of new features addressing work in which all or most of the production process is carried out by AI (hereinafter referred to as "AI-generated work").
Please see this announcement for more information on pixiv's policy on AI-generated work.

■ New features
・You can now set your own AI-generated work as such
・You can now filter out AI-generated work on different pages, such as search results
・Separate rankings for AI-generated work will be added soon (scheduled to launch on November 1st, 2022 on desktop and mobile, and gradually from November 7th in the app)

These features are available to everybody and don't require a Premium membership.
You can find more details on each feature below.

You can now set your own work as AI-generated
This option allows you to specify whether or not your work was generated by AI.
We define "AI-generated" work as work in which all or most of the production process is carried out by AI.
Please check "Yes" at the bottom of the posting or editing pages of your work if it matches our criteria for AI-generated work.

■ How to set your work as AI-generated
You can do so from pixiv's posting or editing pages.
These settings are available for illustrations, Ugoira, manga, novels, and novel series.

Below is an example of an illustration posting page.

When a work is set to AI-generated, it will display a label with the same notation.

If you have already tagged your past illustrations, manga, and Ugoira with #AI-generated and other similar tags, these posts will be automatically marked as AI-generated when the feature is released.
If your work was incorrectly set as AI-generated, please change the settings yourself.
*The above doesn't apply when #AI-generated and other similar tags were added by third parties.

Novels and novel series aren't automatically marked as AI-generated, so please review our criteria for "AI-generated work" and select the appropriate option yourself.

Refer to the article below for more details.
"What is the "AI-generated" option in my work settings?"

Filter out AI-generated work in different pages
This feature allows you to choose whether or not to display AI-generated work on pixiv's main pages, such as search results.

■ How to change display settings
You can do so from your user settings, under "AI-generated work".

The "Display" option will be selected by default. If you want to filter out AI-generated work, select "Display fewer".

Refer to the article below for more details.
"What are display settings for AI-generated work?"

Separate rankings for AI-generated work
We will soon add separate rankings for AI-generated work.
For aggregation circumstances, the feature will be available from November 1st, 2022 on desktop and mobile, and gradually from November 7th in the app.

To learn more about the different types of ranking, refer to the article below.
"What types of rankings are there available?"

Please note that these changes are not necessarily permanent, and may be reviewed and modified as necessary. We're also considering taking additional measures, such as updating the service's Terms of Use and Guidelines and revising other pixiv features.

Thank you for your patronage with pixiv.
