Accomplice newsletter #1: A great launch week, updated pricing, dark mode, updated Terms of Service, and more
Accomplice product updates for the week starting Monday, Sep 20, 2021
🚀 Last week’s launch
Thanks to everyone who helped Accomplice launch on Product Hunt last Monday. It was an exciting way to kickstart a product with an amazing future!
💵 Pricing updates
My biggest unknown going into launch week was how Accomplice would scale under a real world load. The answer was: great! 🙌🏼 And as a result I was able to lower subscription and credits prices!
If you’ve already bought credits or a subscription, your extra credits have already been deposited into your account, and your subscription price has been updated to the new, lower price.
And if you haven’t yet, subscriptions now start at $41/month for the yearly plan ($499 per year) and $49/month for month to month. And credits now start at just $9.99 for 20 and go all the way up to 150 for just $39.99!
🌝 Dark mode
Dark mode was a feature that didn't quite make the launch, but it’s here and your prompts are now guaranteed to look amazing both day and night!
📄 Terms of Service updated
The Terms of Service has been updated to more accurately reflect what you can do with what you create using Accomplice.
The most important part of the update is here:
“Content created or provided by a user remains the exclusive property of said user.”
In other words: whatever you create with Accomplice is yours to do with as you like! No royalties. No rights management. You pay for Accomplice and whatever you create with it is yours forever. Nice and simple just like it should be.
👩🏽🎨 New illustration course starring Accomplice!
Tony Laidig isn’t just an early Accomplice community super user… he’s a former book cover designer turned online instructor who has designed over 600 book covers in his career! And during his time as a book designer one thing that stood out to him was how so many authors wrote children’s books that would never see the light of day.
Why? The illustrations!
For the past 10 years, he’s tested every piece of software he could find for making that process easier, and now he's leading a course called “Illustrate Your Stories: AI Edition”, where Accomplice will be one of the two the pieces of software he focuses the entire course on!
“What I love about Accomplice is that I have full semantic influence. I can take a line from a story and the software interprets it. It may still not be what I had in mind, but with the ability to use influences like artist names, artistic styles, etc. I can finally create progressive visual storyboards for the first time!”
The course started tonight, Monday the 20th, and runs for 2 more Mondays. And it's not too late to signup because Tony will be recording every live training session, so head over to Tony’s website and learn more about how to illustrate your stories using Accomplice!
💪🏼 And more!
- Updated profile, shared iteration, and community designs that give way more space to, and do a much better job of highlighting, everyone’s amazing prompts and iterations!
Not a bad first week, right? Thanks for reading and happy creating!
