So just what is stock anyway?Stock resources are images and resources provided by a photographer, model, commercial or amateur artist, which they may or may not charge for, as obviously there are many many stock companies that manage stock for photographers commercially.So just what is stock anyway? by skydancer-stock
Stock may also be a collaborative and cooperative venture where imagery is placed for the use of other artists to create derivative work from, or for where its not possible or not practical for the artist to work with them face to face.
Stock may also be your own work, photograph or modeling that you use in your own artwork, either as references or as photo collage and manipulation work. Its a very wide area of photography and in fact extends well beyond it these days with the use of modeling programs and 3D rendering programs that can produce scenes, backgrounds, atmospherics and even digital figures for use in stock work.
I do think it should be very clearly stated and respected for any rules or guidelines controlling the usage of the imag
Thank you PirateLotus-Stock!Today is PirateLotus-Stock is retiring from being a Stock and Resources community volunteer! Let's all go give Erin some love! She has been an integral part of our community for the past several years through picking dd's, features, and being a part of projects like the Art History Project. She was my CV training person and taught my the ropes of doing the cv stuff which was totally awesome.Thank you PirateLotus-Stock! by Cassy-Blue
Once again If I could I would shove Erin's entire gallery into this, but I can't so here's some of my favorite stocks in her gallery!

Helpful infoAfter receiving and responding to a commercial request this week I thought I would share/remind everyone of some info about stock.Helpful info by magikstock
Just because stock is uploaded on DA doesn't mean you can use it for every project.
Some places, and even objects, are controlled by third parties or copyrighted. Even if the stock artist took the image they may not have permission to use the likeness in the image.
Example: An image taken of the Eiffel tower at night is copyrighted. Meaning that you can take a picture of it, but you cannot use it in any type of commercial endeavor (including prints).
From SETE website "The various illuminations of the Eiffel Tower (golden illumination, twinkling, beacon and events lighting) are protected. The use of the image of the Eiffel Tower at night is therefore subject to prior authorisation by the SETE. This use is subject to payment of rights, the amount of which is determined by the intended use, the media plan, etc."
Copyright Resources CompilationFan ArtCopyright Resources Compilation by Lyricanna
When we talk about Fan Art, the question of copyright tends to come up. There have been a lot of resources posted on the subject on DA over the years and sometimes they can be tricky to find. So this is a comprehensive compilation on the topic posted by staff, who have had legal consultation. I have left out older articles that are similar to the ones I included as the more recent ones would have the most accurate information.
DA's Copyright Policy
<- This is the big one, specific to Fan Art and it comes with video.
(and more specifically , and )
While I have shared official articles and FAQs here, I know there are a lot of unofficial articles on the topic.
