Stock and ResourcesToday I'm going to give you a tour of Stock and Resources. The motto of Stock and Resources should be, "We're here to help and inspire you!"
Stock Terms that are going to pop up in the article:
Stocker: Stock provider
Stocking: Act of making stock
Who are the community volunteers for stock?
Stock and Resources has three cv's, CelticStrm-Stock, Elandria, and PirateLotus-Stock. These three ladies are very helpful and friendly.
So what exactly is stock?

Fantastic Stock And Where To Find it - Feature 32 I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artists
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

Stock Features 2013 - #01Providing stock to the DA community is maybe one of the most demanding and least rewarding jobs here on DA!
Stockers need to put up simple rules, like crediting and providing a link back to where the stock was used.
Maybe it's just me, but I think this should be a natural response to do. People have no problems with expressing their gratitude when it comes to any deviations other then stock. Most of the time people comment on stock because it is the stockers rule to do so.
A nice piece of recognition for a stocker to get is a DD.
These Daily Deviations are sometimes hard to come by.
Luckily for us stock providers we have the wonderful Elandria and PirateLotus-Stock to help keep us motivated with awarding those so desired DD's!
Having said this, I would like to finish this journal with some of my personal favorite stocks that really should have a DD notification under their stock photo!
For DD consideration...

Tools of the Trade: Choosing StockWhat to Look For
When it comes to stock images there is no better time to be picky. With both free and purchased stock, be discerning. Once you start being picky about what stock you use, and even better when you start using premium stock, you will notice your quality of work will increase a significant amount. Better ingredients means better results.
You want a crisp clear image with a very very low amount of noise, no motion blur caused by a shaky camera, and completely no artificial effects and edits. Noise is the most common issue, but also the easiest to deal with (to an extent) as long as the image is a good size. Which brings us to our next quality to look for.
The bigger the better. The bigger it is the easier it is to add details, fix defects, and overall just a million times easier to work with. In fact, unless you are a 100% web only hobbyist low resolution images are basically unusable. There is nothing
