Recently with an influx of so many sites offering free stock images for manipulation artists it has become kinda difficult to prove the legitimacy of the images provided therein. And especially for new or amateur artists who aren't aware of the copyright issues or the legitimacy rights of those images, and so they tend to go for ones where stocks are being offered in png formats.

This journal is just to give a heads-up to all my watchers/friends who are manipulation artists to be careful of where they download stock images from. And also henceforth any artists who makes use of images from these sites
