Providing Stock & Resources - A Beginners Guide

Providing Stock & Resources - A Beginners Guide is aimed at resource providers new and old - I'm trying to give some tips and pointers based on my experience both as a stocker and a photomanipulator. If you have anything to add, feel free to comment, I still feel like I forgot soooo much. Any other comments are of course welcome as well.

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
    Stock images, textures, brushes, premades & cut-out stock
    • ...give credit (with a link back here)
    • me what you've created (via note or comment)
    • ...redistribute my stock/brushes as it is (no repacks either!) - link people here instead -- my stock is not to be redistributed as part of tutorials packages!!!
    • ...create stock from my stock (incl. brushes, premade backgrounds)
    • ...upload your manips of my stock to the photography section - you did not take the picture, I did!
      YOU CAN...
    • ...use my stock for commercial use, incl. prints, book/cd covers, commissions etc - but excluding stock premades for sale!...
    • as long as you
    • more than minor adjustments (change colors, use filters, remove phone lines) - i.e. if it's your art you're selling, I'm perfectly fine - if you're trying to sell my photos, I'm not.
      YOU CAN ALSO...
    • ...use my stock to practice retouching/overpainting (i.e. minor adjustments, not full manips) as long as you keep to the rules above and upload to an appropriate category, for example Digital Art > Miscellaneous or your Scraps - NOT anywhere in Photography (you did not take the picture after all)! You are not allowed to sell retouches!
    • ...use my stock for reference in traditional art.
    • ...use my stock to illustrate webzines/news articles
    • ...create website layouts or dA journal layouts
    • ...use my stock in all kinds of personal projects
    • ...use my stock off dA (incl. ponybox, forums, etc)
      No need to ask! - just keep with the rules above especially concerning commercial use and all's good!

    Journal CSS
      If you use them, use them as they are or completely (!) exchange the images for your own. I put a lot of effort into my css and it stings when people tear the design apart to start mixing and matching my images with their own or those of other css creators. You can use the code as a basis for your own, but the images are not yours to drag through Photoshop - they are not stock! Also, please don't use the images individually for example as module backgrounds - you can only use them within the css.

      My tutorials are all (c) kuschelirmel-stock - I provide them for free because I believe in giving back to the community the help that I got when I started out. But that does not mean I want them redistributed and reprinted/copied all over the place. It takes lots of time to make them, so let me at least have the possibility to see all reactions first hand! I will not agree to translations, mostly because I cannot check if the translation is any good if I don't speak the language. Sorry, English only!

    I'm a process engineer who loves to create photomanips in her free time. My art account can be found at kuschelirmel. Here on my stock account, you'll find all sorts of resources from stock images to textures to tutorials. I don't have many rules when it comes to the usage, but I have a few and I expect you to take the time to read them if you download and use my stock.

    If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me via note or e-mail: kuschelirmel<at>

Black Forest Exclusives

This is EXCLUSIVE STOCK which you can download for points or win in a contest I donated it to.

Note me instead with your choice and I'll send you the photos in private

All my usual stock rules apply! Plus: do not share exclusive stock with others!

These were shot over the last few months in the Black Forest, Germany using my new Nikon D7200 -- this also means that the images are bigger than in my older packs :heart:

By downloading, you agree to abide by my rules - you can read them in my journal
They're not complicated, even though they seem lengthy.

Before we plunge into the features, I wanted to say THANK YOU! to all of you who use y stock and support me and to mercurycode for the (I'd love to say "recent", but let's face it, I'm too slow to do that ^^;) DD on one of my Dolomites stock images :love:

Rocky Ground 02 by kuschelirmel-stock

Can't wait to see you guys use it (as well as the other images) :love:

As far as personal updates go:
We have done "that kitchen thing" last weekend. I put it like that because I know most people outside of Germany find it strange that here, when you move, it's completely normal that you need to bring your own kitchen (though it gets increasingly more common to have a kitchen in a rented apartment at least in bigger cities and especially in small apartments). When I then go on to explain, that I actually want to do this all myself so the kitchen afterwards is just the way I want it, I can practically see them mentally writing me off as a lunatic ^^; Thing is: my boyfriend and I love to cook. This even went as far as creating a cookbook for my mum's 60th birthday, including writing the recepies and taking pictures of everything (though if I'd known what I was getting into I might've found something else to give her). Anyhow, to save at least some money, we decided to do it the way we'd done it in the previous apartment: go to IKEA and build it ourselves. It's not completely done yet, but everything is functional and the new stove and oven are my new favourite item in the whole apartment. Once the rest of the kitchen (and the my office) are finished at last, I hope to get more into food photography again. If I do, would you be interested in food related stock? Would you rather have some pictures of utensils and veggies etc or of complete dishes? The latter might not be too usable for stock though. What do you think?
