Illegitimate Stock sites

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. 


Two such sites have come to my notice where most of the images are either stolen from other artists or taken from google or all over the internet.

http://pngimg.com/

https://pngtree.com/


I recommend you to please refrain from using images from the above mentioned sites.

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

I was sent news about the KueKuatsu7 account because someone found this other journal about him--> Call Against Kuekuatsu7
I want to say first and foremost that attacking is not and never has been something I approve of. The journal made by this other person is definitely an attack journal, but I'm citing it here just for the sake of showing the screenshots of conversations with him. I am not encourag
