Having just gone through 106 messages, I can say that I saw...maybe 2/3 of the "links" I was given.
"I used your stock" Telling me you used my stock is great...thank you. But please give me a link to it as well. It's in my rules. I know the sentence in the rules sounds casual, but it's still a rule. I want to see what you've done.
"file not found" messages are annoying, especially if the link is less than a week old...but I understand that sometimes pieces just come down. However, if it's a case of a messed up link, I'm sorry I won't see your work unless you give me the link again.
"I used your stock here" ...where? Your "here" wasn't a link, you didn't give me another one, and when I visited your gallery, I couldn't figure out what piece you'd used it in. This happens way too often.
"I used your stock [link-to-my-stock]" Thank you for letting me know you used my picture, but I wanted to see your art, not the stock I posted.
OK, I know that sounded a little whine-y, but it was kind of getting to me between my model account, this one and texture account. I really do appreciate all of the comments and links you send me, and am truly amazed by some of the outstanding things you all can do with stock. I love art, I love taking pictures, and it makes me happy to see my pictures used in awesome art pieces!
New stock will come, I promise. My husband and I just moved into a new place and life is getting back to a normal-ish mode Expect pictures soon
..and if I can self-promote for a moment, there is some newer jewelry over at my art account:
...I love comments on my jewelry
Do not 'rip' or re-distribute my stock on this or any other site.
Be creative. Don't just throw a filter on it or, say, change the color of a bench and call it your 'art'.
Send me a link to your finished piece so I can see and it.
Credit me in your description.
Prints and off-site use are fine as long as my rules are followed.
