Commandments for Using Stock by LinzStock Commandments for Using Stock by LinzStock
Normally I do not allow others to post my images without alterations, but this is an exception. If you would like to use this on your stock photo site feel free to post it. I posted this second version without my image at the bottom to make it more universal.

As I was going over the rules on my main page, because so many people don't read them, (thank you to those of you who do read and abide by them) I was amused that they sort of fit with the 10 Commandments, so I decided to play off that and make it a graphic for my profile page. Now maybe if people don't read my rules, they might actually look at the graphic. Who knows.

Thank you again to all of you who are appreciative of your stock artists. It makes it worth dealing with the handful of jerks.

Hahaha hello. I dunno if i was allowed to, but i used your commandments for Stock using in my presentation for Copyrights and the right usage of pictures in the internet. Or better i would like to use them for it, since i need to hold this tomorrow and got told that i have to presentate it tomorrow :dummy:
I want to use it as a example of the Rules for Stock images and would also link you completly back for it. I appreciate and support your rules totally, for special since they respect the models.
Anyway, if you don't want me to use it, then i may excuse and when i see the message before i am holding the presentation i will care for it immediatly.

Btw i saw that i used one of your stocks as pose reference and didn't linked you back firstly or informed you! I am so sorry for it, i dunno what made me do that, but i wanna be honest so i hope you can forgive me. I changed the description when i saw it and linked you back for it. If you wanna look at it: ([link], i give you the link. I am really sorry for not doing that in the beginning, probably i was more scared about that instead of honest. Long story made short: I just hope that u can excuse me for both and that i may use your stocks again when i am in need of a reference. :icononibowplz:

And sorry for spamming you with suich a huge amount of text! :iconcryforeverplz:

Very well say ! I saved it because it's all what you must have in mind. Thank you so for the permission to use it ! Perhaps will I do when i'll have something to give to others ! I'm "young" at Deviant Art and for the moment I just enjoy my eyes with all the so beautiful stocks and art I see.

:) Anytime. I plan on using your stocks for some wonderful manips soon, so be expecting a wave of creation from me. Very clever with the 10 commandments~!

Wow.. I really would love to have this on my stock site! I have had SO many rude comments on my stock site about models or other things that just tick me off!

Okay, so always ask permission and link to the photo? I can easily do that.....

I find your rules very accommodating. If I ever get enough time to use your photos, I will follow these to the last detail [I sound like a total suck up, heh]

I ran across your work after we were both used in a recent manipulation, and wow! I wish I could attend the Stock Party you mentioned D:

In regards to this piece, I have only two words to say: HEAR, HEAR. (Or HERE HERE, I've never been sure which one was correct). Either way, it's good to see more stock photographers sticking up for themselves. Myself and ~zeldyn-stock have been noticing a painful upswing in uncredited and outside-DA use (to the point that my work was published in a book without my consent).

I am definitely going to put a version of this among my stock as well. <3

I'm glad that you like it, and someone else is sticking up for DA's stock photographers. Best Wishes!

What do you mean when you say 'created from?'

Like in the instance of photomaipulation where the photo is being directly used, or would something like looking at the photo to get an idea of how arms should be positioned count to? Plz halp. :(

^^ Great way to make the things clear!

I support this 10 Commandments :nod:

LinzStock Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
Hehe :) I'm glad that you like them!
Thank you for sharing this !
It's very big help for me as one of none-English speakers to get this kind of basic letters.... :boogie:
Especially i wish to translate this particular letter to my home language, more softly but with much more various nuance, on my tiny stock site in future, i'm not photographer though. :)
Great work this is ! :worship:

This is so cool! While it's all true, it still made me laugh! You have beautiful stock, by the way.
cradleofdoom Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Much appreciation. You are quite wise for posting this. Sometimes you gotta do things to make people listen! I like this. Very good idea. And you're right...without said stock image, a deviant's wouldn't exist. I vow if I want to use one of your images I will link back to you. :D
