@Meli62 Thanks for your reply. Do you know of any sites that will approve images like these? I do a lot of "NEWS" images Fires, Crime Scene, Sports and Weather Spotting. Do those kinds of images sell or is it better to just hold off??
Quoted Message: I have a few pictures retouched with the help of filters. For instance a general view of a park in London that now looks like an oil painting. Are these sort of pictures acceptable? thank you
Generally no, but in some cases they are. Only way to learn what works is to try them.
Keep in mind that many designers who buy these are often looking for a starting point they can use to build and modify for their book, album, CD, magazine cover from but if you filter your original image right out of existence, there's less for them to work with.
