Group Info

We here look foward to being a much more personal group that wants to get to know its members and provide helpful information and tutorials as no one is ever done improving!

So, interested in manipulations? Well, we're interested in you and seeing what you're capable of! We're open to all types of manipulations as well as manipulated stock and are open to all of your wonderful suggestions!

If you have ideas about things for the group or things we should do, let us know, we're more than interested to hear what you have to say.

Because this is a group for learning, growing, and becoming better manipulators, if your work is declined, you will always know why, specifically why without ever having to ask us.

I-M is very much in need of new contributors, three or four or more to be exact so that we can get images accepted quicker than one day.


Judge whether or not an image is intermediate or better, aka, some effort involved and no edge lines showing on cut out stock.

Always leave a message on why you declined an image.

Willing to vote on images often.

Always check to make sure an image is being submitted to the right category, i.e. Fantasy is Fantasy is Fantasy and Dark is Dark is Dark.

Any takers? Apply below, thanks!

Hello group! I just want to pinpoint that favourites -> Landscape - Mountains is closed for submissions.
suolasPhotography Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2016
I need some advice if anyone's willing to help, There's some images on DA that are perfect for this piece I am working on, the images aren't specified as stock so I have tried to contact the image owners to seek permission. There has been no answer from any contact attempts at their profiles here or through any links they have listed on their pages. I've tried searching for alternates but have found literally nothing else suitable.
Does this mean, among other things, the piece cannot be published to DA/ my own site (I attach full credits wherever I publish) regardless of what I have done to seek permission.
Any info/advice would be greatly appreciated.
