  1. I believe the purpose is not to have you use the same photo at all. It simply shows you how to do the effects, and you can then choose your own photos to edit.

  2. WHAT exactly is the purpose of trying to have us follow a tutorial with stock images that are not free?? Are we expected to purchase them JUST for the purpose of following this tutorial? I’m confused.

    • Try to understand it from the writers view. I wish everything is free but bot everything is free on the web and often times the photos needed are not available free. The way I see tutorials is learn… but don’t copy. The tutorial appears like it can be completed with a different model picture. Find a model picture on DeviantART or use Google.

    • You don’t have to use the photo they linked to. There are plenty of free stock photos and they work on this tutorial. The point is to learn not to copy.
