About me: I am in my mid-twenties and sit to pee. My profession is not Photography FYI, but related. Therefore, I don't have great photography equipment, but will be upgrading.
But most of the stock I post CC Att 3.0--free--anyway is stock that wouldn't be accepted on Dreamstime or needs work in some way, whether you only use pieces or remove extensive color fringing. The ready-made excellent stuff I don't post.
So sorry for the quality.
Hi, welcome to Graphic Pineapple Stock, or as I had to name it, GraphicPAStock! This stock resource was established to help fellow aspiring book cover artists, and by someone frustrated by having to pay big $$$ for stock images to even practice my skills on. I was also sick of seeing, like, no stock of dudes of any note. DevArt is a total estrogen fest. Come on, guys, where are ya? So it’s just me here, with my piece of crap camera.
Wish I had a real one but take it for what it is.
Things you don’t normally see on DevArt that you will see here:
Dynamic (if not well-lighted or shot by a professional camera) poses
Males that aren’t wearing ridiculous wizard’s hats
A lot of Creative Commons photos of real castles/forts, flowers/plants with plain backgrounds, monuments/architectural details, shots from America, Canada, and Europe, furniture, a ton of odd antiques, romantic memes, etc.
Things I like (which you will probably also see here):
Donations (lol hoping? 0_0)
TERMS OF USAGE OF STOCK PHOTOS FROM GRAPHICPASTOCK AS OF 17 APRIL 2012:
Well here it is, I have to do this. Thar be monsters out there, and all, y’know. My terms really are quite generous, so don’t fear.
'My images' means content the account holder has uploaded to GraphicPAStock.
‘Live model(s)’ or ‘model(s)’ refer to humans, in whole or in part, who are featured in my stock on GraphicPAStock.
You must credit me as something like "original photo by GraphicPAStock" or something like it. If in DA you must link back to my page or the image. If using three or more pieces of my stock in one image, you can just go something like "jar, bag, and model stock by GraphicPAStock (link to my page)" I also love to see your work, so you can drop a comment, but as of right now I'm not requiring it.
You ARE free to always always always sell DA prints of manipulations/compositions/sketches from my work as reference. Still credit me, however small and even if it's in the "bleed" or framing area of your printed work.
You are NOT to put my stock or parts of my stock on stock sites such as but not limited to Alamy, Stock Exchange, Getty, IStockfoto, fotalia, or Dreamstime. While I try to put stock on DA that needs fixing in some way or would probably be rejected by such sites, if I release an especially good stock I do check these sites. Just because I have a stock listed as Creative Commons 3.0 Attribution Commercial and you put a filter on it and used high pass does not make it your original work. If it looks enough like stock still to sell on these sites then you are clearly not using my work as it was intended, to make art and composite manipulations. And for this, I will tell you right now, I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN WITH A DMCA COMPLAINT AND WORSE.
You can NOT make stock out of my own stock. See above.
You can NOT claim my original stock, as downloadable here on this account, as your own. I shot these.
You can NOT redistribute my stock “as is”—that is to say, my work exactly as downloaded on GraphicPAStock. If you know someone who would want the raw original stock found here, direct him or her to this account.
You can NOT use my images/work that features live models in a way that features or implies overt sexual activity. For instance…shirtless male model manipulated to have wings? Okay. Clothed and holding hands/embracing another clothed person? Okay.
You can NOT sell stock found on GraphicPAStock for the purpose of pornography or sexual purposes.
You can NOT use any of my work for purposes illegal under U.S., Canadian, or German law. For instance, don’t turn my stock into album compilations for you to slap up on Isohunt.
Again, ALL of my license require attribution unless we've worked out a deal. if you cannot credit me, either don’t use my stock, or contact me to pay for it!!! I am setting up payment capabilities.
Final Disclaimer: Neither I nor my models personally endorse any product, ideal, or idea represented by someone who has used GraphicPAStock images for their own purpose.
Still unsure? Don’t use it, or contact me!
