Photomanipulation News November 25, 2012*Thanks to `StarsColdNight for her significant contribution in helping with this newsletter! Thanks also to the many others who helped gather the news!Welcome, and update!Welcome to your bigger, better photomanipulation newsletter. We are pleased to bring you up-to-date information about things that are going on in the community. It's been a busy few weeks, and we have a lot to share with you!Direct link requirements on DDsI spoke with $fourteenthstar and $Moonbeam13, and we decided that you should no longer have to put direct links to stock pictures in order to get a DD. So, you no longer need to direct link your stock pictures for DD purposes. (You DO still need to credit stock, though!) However, many groups still require those direct links for submissions, and that decision is entirely up to the group administrators. We hope this change will help make suggesting and posting DDs easier.
