What are deviantART's stock image guidelines?

To avoid having staff/volunteers move/remove your images - please ensure they follow these guidelines:

  • Size must be a MINIMUM of 1000x1000pixels (excluding vintage portraits that are relatively small and of low quality)
  • No heavy distortion due to blur/noise/grain (this rule is case-by-case and at the staff/volunteers discretion for the usability of the image in question.)
  • No webcams or cell phone images
  • No sexually explicit imagery
  • No celebrity images or "editions"
  • No anime "renders"
  • No images taken from search engines such as Google
  • No "premade" or "precut" images taken from stock sites that do not allow redistribution
