The only way I did it is by clicking the "Download button"

Can you only have real photography as stock?, as I use both 2D and 3D programs.

If you have the chance to answer this, I just have a question. What type of lights do you use? Whenever I try to take stock photos, my lighting is always too orange.
treebeliever Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2007
Oh, this is quite useful. I've been meaning to start a stock account. Thank you for posting this! :fav+: :)
Avarim Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2007   Interface Designer
lol Do you regret calling yourself AttempteStock? I don't think it's a bad name at all.

Thanks for the tips. Ever since I learned that there were people here on DA that had stock accounts I have considered making one of my own...

Thanks for posting that tutorial :D I am more inspired about making my own stock account and a little more confident about the idea.

This guide is awesome! It has been a ton of help to me getting my stock account started. Thanks!
selene13immortal Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
This tutorial was awesome! My friend and I have long been interested in starting and co-running a small fantasy stock account and knowing how to go about it has really motivated me!

One quick question is are you aquainted with Chimera lighting equipment?
We need new lights and lightbanks, made of nice fabric that will survive the trials and tribulations of being walked sat on by evil siblings....*cough*, but Chimera lighting runs a little high.

If you, or anyone else, has experience with their lighting equipment I'd love to have opinions!

Thanks for the tutorial!!!
Epika Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2007
do you really have to own an account with "mynickname-stock" or could I use the one I have now for stock photography?
o-kaykay Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
You don't have to include "stock" in your name at all, a lot of people do just to let others now it's a stock account if they haven't visited their page before:)
Epika Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2007
yep, I've noticed a lot of people do that. that's why I was asking :D
