List of unrestricted stock By francescamwA big thanks to :iconfrancescamw: for providing this list to the group directly from her journal. MAKE SURE TO FAV THIS!More Like This
This is mostly inspired by other lists and journals around DA. It's not comprehensive-I am being a little picky about what I include. I try not to include providers who put theme restrictions on their unrestricted stocks, but some of these say "no hate or violence." I have run across a few who say "nothing immoral." But that's very subjective (I think an image of two women kissing is normal, but it's no doubt someone else's porn or immorality) and, well, restrictive.
I'll try to keep this up-to-date. I am on the lookout for more accounts to put in the "Completely Unrestricted" column. That means not one single restriction--even credit and notification, let alone commercial or thematic restrictions. So if you know of any I don't have listed, let me know.
Providing Stock+Resources - A Beginners Guide Pt01The following five part guide is a collection of tips and tricks for stockers and those who would like to become stockers but don't know where to start - based on my personal experence. While reading, keep in mind that most of what is outlined below are guidelines and not a set of rules you never ever cross - there are exception to everything but the very first rule (I would say copyright is not debatable, after all, you expect others to respect yours, too). Also, this has gotten very long and still, I feel I forgot stuff... So if you have any additions you'd like to see in here, feel free to comment!More Like This

My Model StockHey folksMore Like This
Today I am going to feature some of my own model stock. My friend Rob (the model) and myself, really enjoy doing these shoots and seeing the amazing art that can be created with the photos but recently the same shots are being used over and over again, so it would be nice to see others being used too. I also have stock up featuring Rob's girlfriend and my close friend Clare
Please show them some love!

Tools of the Trade: Choosing StockWhat to Look ForMore Like This
When it comes to stock images there is no better time to be picky. With both free and purchased stock, be discerning. Once you start being picky about what stock you use, and even better when you start using premium stock, you will notice your quality of work will increase a significant amount. Better ingredients means better results.
You want a crisp clear image with a very very low amount of noise, no motion blur caused by a shaky camera, and completely no artificial effects and edits. Noise is the most common issue, but also the easiest to deal with (to an extent) as long as the image is a good size. Which brings us to our next quality to look for.
The bigger the better. The bigger it is the easier it is to add details, fix defects, and overall just a million times easier to work with. In fact, unless you are a 100% web only hobbyist low resolution images are basically unusable. There is nothing
Thank You FeatureAs promised, here is my very first feature.More Like This
I decided to use it as a little thank you for some wonderful fellow stockers I had the pleasure to meet here and who have always supported me with comments, faves, features and a lot of kind words over the last couple of years and some also more recent.
Thank you so much for all your support

My favorites and stocks that I recommend ( part 1)These are galleries that I have in my favorites because I do not usually look at stocks that are on the popular Deviantart because I always see pictures stolen and porn (see tips here ) then for me not to see these things, I use only the stocks that I have in my watchersMore Like This
In this journal I'll add providers that have more stocks Premades, PNGs, and photographs stocks nature and architecture ....

Know your Basics - TexturesThere are a lot of tutorials out there on how to create / photograph texture as well as how to use them on a technical level, but the question of why and when to use textures is rarely touched. This article wants to fill that gap and therefore looks at texures from a slightly different perspective.More Like This
Textures in Manips as you know them
For a photomanipulator, the first thing that comes to mind when hearing the word "texture" are images that can be used in soft light or overlay mode to texture a manipulation or parts thereof. What most manipulators therefore have in mind, are images like the following:
Beautiful textures, sure, and useful, too, but have you ever thought of doing more with them than the aforementioned overlays? And have you ever considered using other kinds of textures, too?

Fave the article if you want to self-promote while promoting others (and not having to feel guilty about it). You can suggest your own work or another deviant’s...as long as it has under 300 faves. If you suggest someone else, I will credit you as the suggester, unless you don't want me to. I especially need literature suggestions!
I seem to have made a mistake copy/pasting some of the notifications about being featured here. If your work doesn't say on here that you were suggested to me, then I either found your art of my own accord or you were suggested by an anonymous source. Sorry about that.

Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 17I’ve been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artistsMore Like This
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can’t provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I’m sure you’ll agree, just click on their deviation.

Winter has finally shown it's face. It's been snowing off and on since Friday. We now have a lovely white blanket covering everything. Sadly, my balcony door is frozen and I can't take pictures. I'll see if I can get someone to fix it this week.
My Dr. says I am doing fine. He changed a couple of meds and Tuesday I go for a bone density test. Other than that nothing is wrong.
There is a child in the apartment over me. Make it go home.!!!!!!!!! The amount of noise one toddler can make is amazing.
