Hope you are all having a great day. It came to my attention some problems about what sites are legal stock providers and witch ones are not.
I have made a very extensive research to make sure I'm not making a mistake by declining images with not confirmed sources. Please read very carefully, i will not battle about this later.
So here a list of the ones that are confirmed,legal and used often: Dreamstime Photoexpress Stockvault Sxc.hu (only with the written permission of the owner) Istockphoto Renderosity123rf.com fotolia.com freeimages.com pixabay.com freestock.ca rgbstock.com Shutterstock.com Gettyimages istockphoto flickrNow about this site that is given me headache each time. Flickr has a search engine like Google (not a valid source), that has all types of images in one place for you to find, BUT according to all sites i read, you can use the advanced search on the site to look up relevant Creative Commons-licensed photos and artwork. Be careful when using CC-licensed images to ensure that you follow the terms of the license completely. So from now one, the images i declined that has the CC licensed confirmed feel free to resubmit, the rest will be declined so don't even bother.About Nasa I’m well aware of the rules they have, this is a personal choice, I dont want amazing photos to be manipulated or changed, they should have a museum for those photos, not to be used by us. If you dont like it, dont buy it.SXC.HU stocks are now forbidden Unless you get the permission from the owner. This is their new rule too. Sites that are NOT confirmed nor will i accept: Photobucket Gfxspot and the similar ones NASA Google mediamilitia.com Facebook Tumblr Taringa mrg.bz brushlovers.com imageshack.com model-kartei.de. publicdomainpictures.net srv1.jpg.co.il vipad.fr blogspot.com Model Mayhem MorgueFile wikimedia.org shop.scrapbookgraphics.com/ Renders of any type or site Any wallpapers site.As always i recommend using DeviantArt resources gallery following each rules. So here its all you need to know to avoid problems in my groups.What the other groups policy is, i DON'T CARE nor will change anything here. So if you don't like it, feel free to leave this groups.
