Look for Art Thief: How to : Find Art ThievesPlease :+fav: this journal, so that a lot of people can read it.
I noticed that a lot of people don't know how to search for their photos on the internet, so here is a short tutorial. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do about art thieves, but i still think it is important to look out for them.

2. Go to the page of the photo you want to search and click "show image"
3. Copy the Link and paste it into google.
4. This page should open, click "search by image".
5. Now you can browse trough the results.

Creating Art feature: Let The Light In: Art Features:icongood-intention:
'Let The Light In (LTLI) is a new tutorial series from the group Good-Intention that will focus on the hows and whys of committing good deeds around the deviantART community.
The first edition of this series will focus on how to create an art feature in order to help fellow friends and artists gain some exposure for their work, regardless of the media. This is a fantastic way to brighten someone's day, and promote some positivity.

Users choose to create art features for a number of reasons, from showcasing artwork they admire, to helping under-appreciated artists gain more views, to promoting art from their friends or watchers. No matter what the motivation, art features are a great way t

The workflow is different from one person to another, but which technique is the best for the task at hand? That can be difficult to understand for users who just started to use Photoshop and are trying to improve but they do not know what to choose when there are so many ways of producing the same effect.

 Working on a single layer
First things first, no matter what you want to do in Photoshop it is always best to work on separate layers, leaving the background layer alone. This allows you to go back later and make changes to the layers you made. You don't like the color balance you modified back then? Don't worry, you have the flexibility of removing the layer or making changes to it so that it works with your concept and idea. 
This is what they call a non-destructive workfl
