Attention Photo Manipulators

No photo manipulation will be accepted without credit links to original stock image if stock is from DeviantArt.
If the stock photos are not available anymore then the link to the stock providers will suffice.
If you use your own photos or other legitimate stock sites, mention it in the description.

Stock in a nutshell Hi there, good to meet you! 
You're probably here because you're beginning to work on a photo-manipulation and want to use some stock images. You may have heard terms like legitimate stock thrown around, but not explained; maybe someone declined accepting your work into their group because of lack of proper credits.
We, as in the team of CRPhotomanipulation, decided to compile a bunch of suggestions and advice that will help you navigate the murky waters of all the most common problems you might encounter in your budding career as a photo manipulation artist.
If you're new or just confused, you're in a good place.

Longer chapters will also have a tl;dr section at the bottom for those who don't like to read a lot. Though, you know, reading it in full could be fun. :happy birthday:
If you're looking for information on a specific subject outlined below, here's a list of what I'm going
Stock sites, tutorials and photomanip groupsExamples of good stock sites
Version 2.0, updated on: xx.08.2018.
New positions have a New *tag.
Please note that this list is meant to give an overview of available stock sites that we would recommend to use, but it is in no way meant to be complete, and we do not take responsibility for the legitimacy of every photo uploaded on these websites. We recommend that you check the rules of every stock photo you download there and the specific Terms of Use (ToU) of the website.
The following list is divided into several subsections, paid and free stocks, and attribution required or not required.***
What does attribution mean exactly? It basically says that you're obliged to credit the stock provider whenever you use their stock in your work.
Stocks for purchase
