Just wanted to share a bit of photomanipulation loveliness with you this evening.
I hope there are some pieces here that you haven't yet seen!
Celebrating Diversity #3Hello, everyone!
When we don't see enough of a particular art form, it is difficult for us to understand or appreciate it. This project aims to bring you features that you might not have seen otherwise from a variety of galleries around dA. For example, I tend to live and breathe photomanipulations and (to a lesser extent) digital art, and I really enjoyed taking a moment to browse the non-photomanipulation galleries for treasures. I found many, and I hope you will enjoy the features I have chosen.
These are the things I love:

Photomanip News and Feature - 09 SeptOur photomanipulation community rocks.
I am excited to share with you some of the exciting things going on in the photomanipulation community. There are many, many ways to get involved-- and I hope you will! The thing about belonging to a community is that it's kind-of like a team, and we sink or swim together.
Let's get started!

IMPORTANT: Regarding Premades
There has been a lot of talk recently-- a LOT of talk-- about premades and what is and is not permissible to use for stock. I've had a lot of people ask me to write articles about it, but really I have been writing them for a couple of months now (see my previous journals and news articles). Moreover, I think that there have been some really wond
About sxc.hu stockGreetings!
A few of you have been really worried lately about using stock from sxc.hu here because of the change in their ownership. Basically, you were concerned that their license says that you cannot redistribute their stock in whole or in part, by itself or combined with other elements, without the written approval of the original photographer.
As we all know by now, creating a photomanipulation is considered "making a derivative image." And we know we can't make premade backgrounds without permission from the photographers, as doing so is redistributing their work.
I advised a couple of you to check with the Help Desk and sxc.hu to find out the whole truth before making rash decisions about your group that could potentially make everyone panic.
Using my own personal account, I wrote to sxc.hu to find out what the story was. Here's what I said:
I was just wondering whether creating phot
Photomanipulation vs. Digital Mixed MediaWhat is this series?
The "Fix that Miscat" series has been designed to help educate deviantART members about the different galleries to which they can submit their art. Tired of submitting to a particular gallery and having your art moved to a different one? We will help minimize this occurrence by examining pairs of categories that frequently get confused and doing our best to clarify them for you.
What is a Photomanipulation?
What it is:
On deviantART, we define photomanipulation as "two or more PHOTOGRAPHIC elements that have been combined to form something NEW."
This means that:
At least 2 elements must be from photographs.
The result must be something new and different, distinguishable from the original.
What it is not:
It does not involve 3D images, even if there are also photos involved.
Pure Photomanipulation GoodnessHi all,
The photomanipulation community has been busy pumping out some amazing works lately, and I wanted to share some of them with you. I will have news shortly, but if you are not doing so already, you can tune in to projecteducate to see what we're up to this month!

Conceptual PhotomanipulationHi all,
While many of us would agree that "good" art tells a story, conceptual art has a concept that transcends the art itself. I wanted to share with you some treasures (some new, some older) I've discovered from the Photomanipulation > Conceptual gallery. Perhaps you will find something new to collect, or perhaps you will be able to see an old favorite with a new eye.
Want to know more about conceptual photomanipulation? Here is an article from Project Educate that might interest you. Hope you enjoy.
Photomanip Phenoms Vol. 01Outstanding photomanips. Outstanding artists.
Exposed, but not overexposed.
I hope I am introducing some of you to new artists to watch and love.
And if you've loved them before, here's your chance to love them again!
These artists were carefully chosen because their work displays not only technical prowess and knowledge of the medium, but also a great deal of creativity. They are always imitated but never duplicated. They make me want to reach inside myself and be a better artist-- learn more, be more patient, try and try again. I hope you will also get inspiration from these pieces.

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 DDs
I 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.

Celebrating Diversity #13In this issue of Celebrating Diversity, I would like to remind you of an amazing feeling...when you see a piece of art created in a medium or genre that you have little or no experience of working in, and it feels like you're witnessing something magical, something beyond your comprehension.
It's wonderful to revel in the joy of How do they do that? and find inspiration in the creations of other artists. So I challenge you to take a step outside of the galleries that you regularly browse and immerse yourself in the experience of indulging in something new.
How do you celebrate diversity?
Do you regularly browse, comment on and collect art that's wildly different from what you create?
Do you watch artists who use mediums that you don't use in your own

As the old year begins to fade into the sunset, it is customary to reflect on the passing year and make plans for the upcoming one. Some do this in the form of resolutions, some people make action plans, some people just swing into the new year the same way they swung out of the old one Whatever way you intend to welcome in 2013, I hope you're surrounded by love and that you do it safely!
I've been reflecting on the year and like many, with some focus on the unimaginable events of the last few weeks. Specifically, the shooting in Newtown. I know that it's "human nature" to want to find
