The purpose of the Stock Images community is to bring the option for using stock images into the Hive community, where we can easily reward and support the creators of these images. Instead of using outside sources you can tag, credit and reward your fellow Hivians for their talented work of art right here on the blockchain.
We get a lot of flower and nature photos, so it takes a lot to impress me in this genre. @brianhphotos has managed to, however, with these stacked images of a dandelion clock. You can even find links to his tutorials on how to stack.
@wonderful.aceh brings us some confronting images of a landfill in Indonesia, with cattle browsing through the waste. Once again reminding us that Stock Images aren't always about the pretty things in life.
When asked about the types of images people are wanting to use, emotions often comes up. Unfortunately, photographs of recognisable people require model releases for use when used in a way that makes an income of any kind, so we can't usually accept most photos of expressions. Some of our photographers have been getting inventive in order to work with this restriction and @my451r has cleverly used nails to achieve a depiction of sadness. I love that he places the focus off to the side in order for people to be able to add any of their own writing or embellishments.
@kaliphae does some beautiful dividers and this is a selection for Leo Finance users. It's past payout, but I still want to recognise this lovely graphic work.
