Contests News and FeaturesWelcome to Stock & Resources 2013!
We hope you all had an excellent beginning to the New Year!  Please find below some very interesting contests, features and news.
Precut stock - all the problems :/
Precut stock is something that like Marmite, people either love, or hate.  Either way it brings its own special issues to stock providers and photomanipulators alike, so I've highlighted some very important points you should take into consideration below.
:bulletred: Precut stock is in its very nature "EDITED" therefore its is no longer in its original photographic form and should therefore be posted to resources/clipart OR stock/premade backgrounds/..  NOT to the usual stock galleries which should be reserved for original photography that has only very minor post production edits such as exposure/brightness/contrast etc. alterations according to DA's gallery definitions.

Stock and Resources: Policy ClarificationThe Stock and Resources community is an integral part of deviantART, both for having an active community of its own as well as providing high quality stock to all deviants. 
As this community has grown so much over the years, so has the amount of invalid stock and resources that have been provided by some deviants. The Stock and Resources community feels like this reflects negatively on them, the volunteers have a hard time trying to teach people about valid stock and how to use it correctly, and it gives an appearance that deviantART Staff tolerate so-called “art theft” or copyright infringement.
In this article our aim is to reinforce our policies regarding stock and stock use and clear up some misconceptions.
Stock and Resource submissions to deviantART:
What are Invalid Stock and Resources?
In short, invalid stock or resources are anything which you do not have full permission to upload. This incl


Photomanipulation FAQsEverything you wanted to know . . . And MORE!

Hi! I'm looking for a particular reference which I've not found yet, not even in google, in pinterest or deviant (as long as I've searched): a figure of a man kneeling (both knees touching the floor, the arms doing nothing) from a high view or a bird's eye view. I wonder if someone has better lucky than I?

There are a few folders that are either full or inaccessible. "Object stock" doesn't have a + submission button.

Hi, sorry for the delay in response. The Object Stock folder is a parent folder for sub-folders that are open for submissions. The master folder is for selected featured images of the over all object category. :) What folders did you find that were full?
