I think this stamp says it all. I am making a commitment to provide safe and legitimate stock resources for the :devart: community. You will never find celebrity or google images in my gallery. I pledge to adhere to all dA terms and guidelines regarding stock images.

If you are a stock provider that feels the same, feel free to post the thumb on your profile, in stock rules, or in the artists comments. Just let me know that you've used it. (You don't have to notify me more than once if you intend to place it in your artists comments.)

We at :iconthe-stock-directory: have created a sister group for verified safe stock resources providers called:

:iconsafe-stock-resources:

This stamp was made entirely on photoshop using paint, gradient, and text tools. I made it as an add-on for my updated stock terms of use.

I don't think so.. I would check the redistribution info in the terms of use on the site to be sure. :)

It's just that a certain stocker is uploading them as her photos - so I wanted to check before I report the deviation - thank you :hug:

Really, it's a fantastic idea! I have so much stock saved to my computer (cause you never know when someone will leave dA - ugh!) and I now have to go through it all. I especially love getting unrestricted stock. But one of the stockers who had amazing unrestricted stocks, has removed almost ALL of it... and when looking at an online store, I realized why. They had taken the photos from the site, extracted the objects, then offered it as stock :no:

I am all about copyright and respecting it, so it kills me to know I have probably used illegitimate stock.

I truly hope that more stockers will take this approach (especially those who offer mostly object stocks). So again, bravo for hopefully starting a much needed movement! :love:

I've been on a tear through the stock directory's galleries lately to make sure it's up to code, so I thought I'd make that little stamp. :D Starting a movement is a great idea! I can start a blog on the subject in the group and maybe get it rolling, at least a little bit. :D I know what you mean about saving tons of stocks in case someone poofs. My external hard drive is almost like a mini-dA. lol I have the stocks separated by provider, and then inside those folders, I have different folders of subjects or colors. lol I think I may be slightly ocd with it. I had to delete an entire folder once because of someone ripping off google images too. :sniff: I even had to re-do a couple of my premades.

I have 1,083 folders, with 25,472 files in my main stock folder :faint: Although, that does include my own personal stocks (although not all of it...) It's no wonder my hard drive is almost completely full :lmao: I have it sorted by type (Male, Women, Nature, Places (Exterior, Interior, Misc), etc. And then within those, they're sorted by deviant. It's exhausting trying to keep up with it!

Anyway, yes, I truly think a movement is needed. And the stock galleries are a prime place for it to start. You should see if you can submit this stamp to some of the stock groups (if you haven't already).

Hehe wow! I can sympathize! I haven't got a clue how many files are in my folders. lol I haven't submitted them to stock groups yet, but I did post a blog about it and mentioned you in it. :D Here is the link: [link]
