An AI Image App That Puts Clothes on Nude Women is Suddenly Popular

A “DignifAI” example.

After PetaPixel reported AI image apps that “undress” women are on the rise, a new AI image tool aimed at women is gaining traction — but this one puts clothes on instead of removing them.

“DignifAI” has emerged from the controversial messaging board website 4chan with people using generative AI tools to add clothing to women’s pictures and even remove their tattoos.

Many have been outraged by DignifAI, with the Metro’s Katherine Fidler calling it a “need to control women’s bodies” and The Daily Caller labeling it “pathetic.”

The DignifAI movement has an X account (formerly Twitter) where it posted some images taken at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards in which Miley Cyrus and Doja Cat have their appearance changed. Doja Cat has her tattoos removed meanwhile Miley gets a whole new wardrobe change.

Not all of the X account is women, Post Malone has his hallmark tattoos taken off his face meanwhile the infamous image of Elon Musk on a boat sees him covered up in a suit using generative AI.

DignifAI even has a website that contains instructions on how to set up the AI image generator tool. Which, like most dubious AI image tools, is operated via an offline version of Stable Diffusion.

According to Know Your Meme, DignifAI was started by 4Chan members who say they want to eradicate e-girls who post suggestive photos of themselves by using AI to edit their photos so it looks as if they are wearing more clothing.

The movement was turbo-charged by conservative influencer Jack Posobiec after he began retweeting DignifAI posts.

A report by Graphika in December showed that AI apps that generate nude pictures of women were proliferating leading to scandals in high school communities in New Jersey and Spain.

With the rise of AI, those types of scandals were foreseeable but the DignifAI movement is something different; rooted in the “Trad” culture — internet slang for traditional — which advocates for a more conservative society from yesteryear.

In an editorial for the right-leaning Daily Caller, Kay Smythe writes, “I’m not exactly sure how slut shaming confident women is going to help bring dignity back to the internet.”
