WDWParksGal is my name and stock is my game! I have stock on this site, as well as at WDWParksGal-Stock and TheStockWarehouse. I am either a Founder or Co-Founder at the following stock groups:
Fantasy-Stock-Group Stock-For-Premades Joint-Stock WingIt-Stock
Groups that have a stock folder:
Mindspan Holidays DevNews 

My stocks are varied: Premade Backgrounds, Tubes and Cut-Outs, Landscapes, Skies, Clouds, Theme Parks, Fairs, Animals, Holidays, Objects and Textures, as well as creating wallpapers that can be used as a stock background, character references, digital scrapbook pages, gradients, banners, group and deviant avatars, tutorials and CSS backgrounds. I've provided stock for the community to use (unrestricted) for many years now. I would be happy to help anyone who would like to get started providing stock either on his/her current site or a new site created just for stock. From offering advice, finding tutorials to share, offering hints on creating different stock types, as well as other help, I'm open for "business". Just send me a note with any questions.

:iconnewsboyplz: Stock Hints and Tips:

:bulletgreen: If a new site is desired just for stock, remember that DeviantART requires a different email account for each DeviantART site, so a new email account may need to be created in order to set-up a new site.
:bulletgreen: Make sure any rules for use of the stock is clearly stated in the artist description and/or a journal and/or a widget on the profile page. Be clear and concise to make sure there isn't any misunderstanding about how the stock can be used. State whether the stock can be used off DA. Remember that once a stock is posted that all the rules in the world may not protect abuse of the stock, hot-linking or reloading the stock on to other sites. If there is concern about how the stock is used, an option is to use a watermark over the preview image then Points :points: can be charged to download the larger, unmarked stock.
:bulletgreen: :camera: Stocks should be clear and not fuzzy or grainy. Be sure to mark the Common License prior to submitting to verify the stock is for use in the community. 
:bulletgreen: The minimum size for any stock is 1000 x 1000 pixels. Tube and Clear-Cut PNG stocks are subjected to the same size limit.
:bulletgreen: Rotate Stocks so they are not posted sideways. Also, straighten stocks whenever possible. 
:bulletgreen: :police: Google is NOT a stock source! Do not post "celebrity" cut-outs, movie screenshots, official logos or anything else that is protected by a ©/™ (see FAQ below). 
:bulletgreen: It is a good idea to have a folder in the favorites just for stock uses. It is a way to give support to the artist using the stock, as well as keeping tracking of what stock is used where and when.
:bulletgreen: :helpdesk: For specifics regarding stock and fair use issues, make good use of the "Help and FAQs":
FAQ #792: As a stock art resource provider, how can I be of help in regards of stock art resource usage in prints?
FAQ #365: May I Sell Stock on the Premium Content Platform?

A Few Stock Tutorials and Information:

Some things we should talk aboutThis journal is here to highlight, debug and bust some myths for you all of stuff that goes on ALL the time, and is in part spurred by some recent events that leave me somewhat baffled and perplexed over some of the behavior we've been recently seeing across the DA communities, particularly Stock & Resources, and Photomanip since we work so closely together (and its apparently time I wrote a new wall of text to you all.)
Every community has them.  Those constant "issues" that make people angry and frustrated. Sometimes they can be easily solved with a little effort, and other times something just snaps and causes reactions that are far and away over the top.  Here are some of our top faves.
Its time for everyone to take a nice soothing deep breath, its a long one!
There will be a test at the end. :stare:

Hello, welcome to TEAM Stock and Resources!
   How to Stock 5- Gallery OrganizationWelcome to "How to Stock," a short series of articles on how to do some stock basics. We'll ask the big names in stock for their tips and opinions on how to get the best out of your stock shoot!
This fifth article is the special Stock & Resources Project Educate Week article.  For this article, I asked SenshiStock and kirilee just one question about their galleries.  Let's see what they said!

How do you keep your gallery organized, concise, and well-representing of you?
:iconsenshistock: SenshiStock says:
There's a few methods which I employ to try to manage the gallery as it gets larger. First, I use a series of folders to help sort poses into categories. There are a lot of folders, and sometimes images fit into more than one folder. For example, I might have a pose where I'm using a sword, but I'm also kneeling. This image would go both in the Sit and Kneel Drawing Poses f

Hy folks
As I am lately back with some manips, I thought its about time 
to make a journal with some of my favourite stockers :)
Why they are my favourite? Well they are for several reasons!
Each of those who will be listed here, will have:
:bulletpink: good to excellent quality, 
:bulletpink: Sizes which are usable beyond webpics shortest side at least 1200, 
(that excludes cutouts, jewellery or any stuff you wouldn't need as primary object in your manip and seamless patterns)
:bulletblue: Rules that allow commercial usage (at least on dA and on request for outside dA) 
:bulletblue: Rules that allow outside dA usage without being forced to slap the stockers name ON the artwork itself. 
:bulletblue: or Rules that are fully unrestricted
:bulletred: This includes stock-providers that take a few points for their stock, because I rather pay a few points if the TOU's & quality are grea
  Stock Copyright - Shutterstock, iStock vs. DAFirst and foremost, I am not a lawyer. This journal contains my personal understanding of copyright law, terms and conditions for the mentioned websites as it relates to the stock and the artistic community here on DeviantArt (DA).
However, please feel free to share this journal.
 
Recently, one of DA’s most active and respected stock users came under fire for using off site (meaning outside DA) stocks in her work. As a “stocker”, I was surprised to hear of this - It was my understanding that this was common practice for artists to do.
It prompted me to look into the matter and dust off the little bit of arts law I studied whilst doing my post grad in Arts Management. (And I will save you the definition of IP law and the fact that copyright stays in effect for about 150 years, give or take a few. If you want to read a bit more about the basics in easy to und

I updated and added new stuff on: March 9th 2014
Hy folks,
before I started doing my own art, I was an avid incredimail email- stationary creator.
(All legal always with freeware, according to terms, with written permission etc)
For that reason I have collected a massive bunch of pages with stockphotos (free for profit reasons)
free & shareware fonts, plugin pages and so on.
I thought that it might be as useful for creating art for some of you.
The quality and resolution of the images varies so check yourself :)
I met several people who don't know much free stock outside dA..
although dA holds fantastic stock photographers and artists too! one can never have enough choice ;)
Where possible I added a link to their TOU (Terms of use) beside the link to the mainpage
As a disclaimer:
I am not affiliated with one of the pages linked to, nor am I to hold liable for any content there. You visit those sides at your own ris

and first I'll tell because I started getting interested in this subject. three things happened that made me pay attention in this detail.
1 - a long time ago, I used the stock from pixabay in some premades. and unfortunately I did not know that this site is not reliable, so I was denounced and I had all my contents posted in stock removed.
2 - I used a premade, but the person who did this premade used a stock that was not allowed to be used, and this premade was denounced and people who used also have been denounced and had my manipulation was moved to scrap for infringed copyright.

Despite so many of the complaints some people have against it, DeviantART is a very good social network geared specifically towards artists and people who appreciate art.  DeviantART is, in fact, one of the very first sites of its kind, predating even such social networking giants as Facebook and Myspace.
It is a wonderful place to share your work, to look at the work other artists have created, to offer and receive advice on artwork, and many other functions.  You will find that there are lots of fellow Deviants out there who want the best for you and want to see you excel as an artist and as a member of the DeviantART community.  On the other hand, you will also find an alarming number of people who like to troll, flame, spam, and just generally cause trouble for fellow Deviants.  Every place has them, and there's no escaping it.
That said, there are a few ways you can survive the onslaught of some of

No, I'm a freelance writer. I taught for 25 yrs. and when I had to retire, I wasn't good at it.
If you go to my website, I'm all over the place. It just sort of happened. One day nada, the next, I'd been published.
