And proud of it. :-b

But I seriously do use Google like ALL the time during the day. By far the best search engine around.

And I use GMail for my e-mail and google Maps....

Yeah, I am addicted to it.

Maybe this has been posted here and sorry if I am asking something that has been discussed before but where do people get stock photos and what makes a good stock photo?

Where for me would be:

http://www.flickr.com
http://www.sxc.hu
http://www.caedes.net

Those should get you most anything you want or need.

What makes for a good stock depends on what you are wanting. Something with pretty high contrast can work good for lighting or accents.

The big thing is play around with blurring the stocks and the layer style (linear light/dodge is what I use a lot of the time) ;-D

Ok guys how can I enlarge a picture and not have it pixelate on me?? Is there a way to make copies of the render and change settings or make it blurry and help it out a bit?I'm trying to get a bigger starting pic but its a pic of a stock car and I think I have the only 2 that were taken before race season started...I would go and take new ones but the car has been rolled and isnt nearly as purdy as it was...

you can never get it as sharp when enlarging a picture. i try to never do it unless im using it in a background where its faded and not noticed as much. you can always try using the "sharpen" effect. it works pretty well...but if you are getting pixelation...you might need more than that as it must be a really small pic to begin with. maybe a blur then shapen :-?

either way it most likely wont come out as clean as you would like. :-/

Yep, pretty much what I was going to say. There's not a whole lot that you can do.
