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

Hiya Darlings,



In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I'd share my experience with you today. As you know, I've dealt with ovarian cancer over the last year, so it's incredibly important for me to have a regular mammogram every year, despite being younger than the average requirement for it. (I'll be 35 on November 1st.) I know for some it can be a scary and awkward situation that you may dread or want to put off. You shouldn't, though. If you're at the age that your doctor suggest that you get them, do! It doesn't hurt at all. There's just a little pressure and a bit of awkwardness with a nurse moving your breast around on a plate. The entire process took about 30 minutes from the moment I entered the waiting room to the time I left. That 30 or so minutes out of your day could save your life. 


As I was leaving the radiology office, they gave me a little packet of information that I would like to share with you:




Do It Yourself: Monthly Breast Self-Exam




  • In the shower: Raise one arm. With fingers flat, touch every part of each breast, gently feeling for a lump or thickening. Use your right hand to examine your left breast, and your left hand for your right breast. (note: The diagram photo shows the unused arm lifted and bent behind the head.)
  • Before A Mirror: With your arms at your sides, then raised above  your head, look carefully for changes in the size, shape, and contour of each breast. Look for puckering, dimpling, or changes in skin texture.
  • Gently squeeze both nipples and look for discharge. (note: Originally I was concerned that I had breast cancer, as during this exam I had a clear green discharge a full year before I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.)
  • Lying Down: Place a towel or pillow under your right shoulder and your right hand behind your head. Examine your right breast with your left hand. Fingers flat, press gently in small circles at the outermost top edge of your breast and spiraling in toward the nipple. Examine every part of the breast. Repeat with left breast. 
  • With your arm resting on a firm surface (chair, table, etc.) use the same circular motion to examine the underarm area. This is breast tissue, too.

Keep in mind that these self exam techniques are not a substitute for periodic examinations by a qualified physician.

The ABCs of Breast Cancer Early Detection



Annual Mammogram: 


Start at age 40, and continue as long as you are in good health.


Breast Awareness:


Know how your breasts normally look and feel so that you will notice any changes and report them to your doctor right away. Breast self-exams are an option for increasing breast awareness.


Clinical Breast Exam:


Have one every year by your doctor or nurse if you are 40 or older, and every 3 years if you are in your 20s and 30s.






A Personal Action Plan will help you find breast cancer early.




  • Breast Cancer is the most common cancer (other than skin) that you may have to face in your lifetime.
  • It can occur at any age, but is much more likely after age 40 and as you get older.
  • Learn about breast cancer and how to find it early.
  • When found and treated when it is small and in it's earliest stage, the chance for successful treatment is greatest.
  • A mammogram can find cancer when it's very small, often years before a woman or her doctor would be able to feel it.

Here is what a mammogram looks like, and may be used for non-commercial anatomy references only. Yes, this is my own mammogram. I annoyed the technician and office people into giving me copies for stock, because that's just how I roll. :D

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.
