Welcome to Safe Stock Resources



"It's not about how many members we have, it's about who our members are. We care about our Resources & Stock Community. We strive to provide quality, safe, and legitimate stock resources for artists to use."

This group is based on the pledge that we as stock providers distribute safe and legitimate stock resources. We pledge to follow all dA Term and Guidelines regarding our stock resources, so that artists may use our stock without fear or penalty.

Safe-Stock-Resources was formed as a way to feature the stock providers that are known and trusted for their content. It was not created as your average 'submit anything' group. It is meant to be a place where artists can go to see a selection of stock providers that they can trust.

Only verified members will be allowed to join. The submission process will be strict and thorough. Not everyone will be approved. All potential members must be stock resource providers. If you are interested in joining, send the group a note, and we will put you into the consideration queue. If you are an artist seeking stock to use, please watch the group instead.

How To Credit Your Stock Providers Tutorial by CelticStrm-Stock Do's and Don'ts of Stock Photography by Tasastock Contests News and FeaturesWelcome to Stock & Resources 2013!
We hope you all had an excellent beginning to the New Year!  Please find below some very interesting contests, features and news.
Precut stock - all the problems :/
Precut stock is something that like Marmite, people either love, or hate.  Either way it brings its own special issues to stock providers and photomanipulators alike, so I've highlighted some very important points you should take into consideration below.
:bulletred: Precut stock is in its very nature "EDITED" therefore its is no longer in its original photographic form and should therefore be posted to resources/clipart OR stock/premade backgrounds/..  NOT to the usual stock galleries which should be reserved for original photography that has only very minor post production edits such as exposure/brightness/contrast etc. alterations according to DA's gallery definitions.
:bulletred: Precut stock - like all photo
Membership and Submission Guideline InformationThis is the outline of our group membership and submission requirements. Just like at The-Stock-Directory, everyone has a say in how this group is run. If you have a suggestion or addendum to the rules, please let us know. After this blog is published, I will be adding a folder so that you can submit your Stock Terms of Use journals, so feel free to submit them. Even though the membership requirements are strict and thorough, this group will not be an elitist snob society. I don't play by those rules.
If you are a new stock provider and are watching or considering this group, I encourage you to visit The-Stock-Directory and look over the Learning Resources for Stock Artists gallery. The-Stock-Directory is a learning based group that helps new providers grow and learn the ropes. I would also encourage you to familiarize yourself with the :devart: terms and guidelines regarding stock. That should




:star: Submission Guidelines:

:bulletblue: - All submissions must be listed in the Resources & Stock category of deviantART.

:bulletblue: - As this is a Featured Member group, only deviants who have been accepted as a member will have their work accepted.

If you know of a legitimate stock and resource provider invite them to join the group or have one of the admins send an invitation; please do not submit their stock to us unless they are a member here!

:bulletblue: - All submissions must adhere to dA Terms and Guidelines.

:bulletblue: - All Premade Backgrounds must be credited, whether it's your own resources or legitimate 3rd Party resources. (i.e. another dA stock provider that allows for premades.) Note: Premades should never be created with images from sxc.hu, DepositPhotos, etc. It violates their redistribution terms.)

:bulletblue: - All Precut Images must be of your own resources or precut with permission from the original stock provider. They must be credited in the artists comments. They should NEVER come from google images, retail websites, or other copyrighted images.

Stock & Resources


What you need to know about Pre-Cut Images:




Pre-cut images can be a very handy resource for artists looking to save some time on the extraction process of stock.  These images are isolated from their primary background in a .png or .psd format. These resources should be well extracted with a clear attention to detailed removal, and a lack of stray particle pixels.


What these should contain:



- They should come from resources that allow for redistribution, typically your own images.

- The pre-cut image should have its original source cited in the artist’s comments, including your own images.

- They should meet the minimum size requirements of 1000 x 1000 pixels.


What these should not contain:



- They should never contain Google, celebrity, anime, movie screen shots, or retail website images. These so-called “renders” are not permitted in the Stock & Resources gallery.

- They should not be smaller than the required minimum size guidelines.

- They should not contain excessive amounts of stray pixels or missing significant portions of the image being extracted.

- They should not come from resources that do not allow for adaptation and redistribution. This includes other stock websites and pay sites that have non-redistribution clauses in their EULA.


Relevant FAQ Regarding Pre-Cut Images:





FAQ #809: What are deviantART's stock image guidelines?

FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?

FAQ #257: What sort of permission do I need to use someone else's work?

FAQ #157: Can I use things created by other people in my submissions?

FAQ #792: As a stock art resource provider, how can I be of help in regards of stock art resource usage in prints?

FAQ #306: Does "Crediting" let me use whatever I want?


In closing:



Your obligation as a stock provider is to provide safe and legitimate resources for artists to use. By using your stock, they trust that you are adhering to DeviantArt Guidelines with the stock that you provide. Failure to abide by the guidelines that dA provides not only impacts you, but our community, and the artists that use your stock.

But what if we see someone sharing celebrity, etc. pre-cut images? Be a pillar of the community and show them how wonderful our stock world can be. Do not go on the offensive with attacks and shaming journals. Work with them, and try to teach them. It may be possible that they are new and are unaware of the guidelines regarding pre-cuts. If all else fails, use the proper reporting channels located on the right hand side of the deviation page.

The Stock & Resources Community is a unique and wonderful place. We support each other, and accept new providers with open arms.

Thanks for the invitation. I've started to upload some of the pictures I made at the island of Texel. I was so excited to finally see "the Slufter". Now I really want to go back some day with both high tide at spring tide when the waterlevel is at extreme height.
