Precut Stock Providers who Name their SourcesEven if most of the precut stock providers are sincere, and only use their own resources... they don't often tell it! So, it is very hard to know who makes abusive precut stock pictures or not.Precut Stock Providers who Name their Sources by *Anne-Wipf
I would like to encourage every stock provider to name his sources (even if they are his own).
You'll find here the precut stock providers I found who always name their sources, as you can see they are not very numerous. I hope that every photomapulators will find it useful and that many other precut stock providers will join the move.
I'm sad to see that many of the best precut stock providers I know and who offer they own stock didn't take the time to TELL IT! So, alas, they will not be selected in this list. I hope they'll do in the future and the list will grow.

Today we're going to address the "Circle of Stock." Cue Disney's "The Lion King" theme song and call me Mufasa. Just like in the circle of life, what we do affects another group, and returns to affect us again. We have a responsibility to the artists that use our stock to provide legitimate and safe stock resources. As an administrator for a few art groups as well as stock groups, I have seen what happens to the artists who use invalid stock resources. They have had their art declined, or had to replace stock elements through no fault of their own. This especially includes those who includes celebrity or otherwise copyrighted material, even if it was uploaded to the Resources and Stocks section of . It isn't fair to the artists who use the "stock" and hurts the credibility of not only the stock provider who uploads it, but the stock

There's a butt-load of Photoshop Tutorial sites out there, covering how-to's on a wide range of software techniques.. How many of them get into the nitty gritty of fine-art though? Photoshop is a great tool, but it's just that - a tool. With SurrealPSD we want to go beyond the software, and use fine-art techniques from natural media in the creation of better art.
Some of the topics we enjoy include Lighting, Scale, Composition, Depth of Field, Colour Theory and more. We've just undergone a huge overhaul of our category system, so for your convenience - here's a lineup of our tutorials and articles:
• Photoshop Basics Tutorials
Tutorials covering the basics of Photoshop including Layers, Layer Masks, Adjustment Layers, Compositing Tools and more.
• Photoshop Compo
Photomanipulation walkthroughStep 1: Idea (message, composition)Photomanipulation walkthrough by *tamaraR
You decided that you want to make a photomanipulation. But what to make? There are so many photomanipulations already out there and mostly with the same theme. So you decide you don't just want to stick a pretty girl onto a beautiful background. No you want to be original and have your manipulation portray a message everyone can relate to.
Think of things that are important to you, that lay close to your heart. They can be emotions (love, hate, sadness, anger) or experiences, hobbies (art, sports etc), things you are struggling with. Or they can be global themes like (beauty, money, economy, eating disorders, war, relationships etc.)
Of course if you choose to portray something as love there are many ways to do so. Do you want it to be a surreal depiction of love, or dark, fantasy, sci-fi, conceptual, humourous... your choice will of course decide the whole 'feel' of the image.
So choose wisely as they say.
Now that you have your theme you nee
