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, 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.

I Wish....

Sun Jan 25, 2015, 6:27 PM

Every now and then we find ourselves wishing for things. Here are a few thoughts and wishes that have crossed my mind regarding the Stock & Resources gallery.

- I wish that really awesome photograph/line art/fractal/whatever was listed as Stock & Resources. The permissions SAY people can use it, but it's not listed as stock. If it were, I'd totally DD blah blah blah, but I can't. It's NOT LISTED AS STOCK! :facepalm:

- I wish I'd get more DD suggestions. I always hear people saying "Oh this should get a DD" or "Oh I totally thought about suggesting this!" or "OMG You're such a great stock provider I wonder why you don't get much exposure, blah blah blah" so... WHY HAVEN'T YOU SUGGESTED IT?! I can't consider it if I don't see it 'cause it never got suggested. :stare: It's so easy. Go to my page. Send me a note. Title it "DD Suggestion." Include the thumb or link to the image you want to suggest. Say, "Yo, Cheryl, I'd like to suggest blah blah blah for a DD and this is why." EASY PEASY! :D You'd think that I get TONS of suggestions, but no. I get around 5 a month. No joke. The vast majority of the DDs I feature are ones that I hunt down myself.

- I wish more people would follow FAQ #809: What are deviantART's stock image guidelines? Only distribute the stuff you have created yourself or have the necessary permissions to redistribute. If you don't follow that faq, you are SOL on a DD feature from me, IMHO personally.

-  I wish people would stop thinking Daily Deviations are an "award" that they "win" when we "give" them to you. Stop hanging your self worth as an artist on a 24 hr feature. It's a feature! It's fun and it's great. I love featuring them. Having one or not doesn't define you as an artist or a person.

- I wish the drama llamas would get put out to pasture and the clique in-fighting would stop. It's been fairly decent lately, but seriously.. Stick together and encourage each other, don't start lists of shame that name people that might be making mistakes. They might not know any better because they're new. Don't set a bad example by acting like a bratty elementary school kid by saying "OoOooo such and such is doing this" in your journal. Go help them, don't make walls of shame or flaming journals of hate calling for the pitch forks and torches. If they're doing something wrong, TEACH THEM HOW TO DO IT RIGHT, not how to be a Class A Jerkface.

- I wish we could have a S&R chat event soon. It would be great to get everyone together and talking. We are a community, not competitors.

- I wish some of the stocks out there wouldn't be so heavily post processed. Leave a little room for the artists to work with them and create their own design. It's too limiting for the artists in my opinion.

That's about all I have for now. There's probably more, and this is entirely my own personal opinions and not a reflection of any official shenanigans.
