On Monday, September 22, 2003, the WC! Reference Image Library celebrated having finally hit 20,000 images for our members to use.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/22-Sep-2003/2123-ril20000.jpg

The library started with merely a handfull of photographs from a stock library Scott had invested in and has grown to a massive database of photographs generously provided by our members.

The software that runs the library has been vital in implementing the changes that allow the ease in uploading that we have today. Categories can be added and expanded to meet the needs as we grow.

This celebration would not have happened, had it not been for all those members who donate their images and their time. Thanks to all of you, our library is a wonderful resource for all our members to use.

So take a look in the Reference Image Library (http://www.wetcanvas.com/RefLib/ ) and take a look the next time you are in need of inspiration or if you have great photos you'd like to share with all our members.

And as always, please feel free to PM/email me if you have questions about the library!

I think a lot of your hard work has also helped in it's success:D

I would be lost without the image library...I don't paint from photos all the time...but when I'm stuck it's been a wonderful font of inspiration.

I think at least 5 of the paintings on the bottom of my posting are from the RL...the portrait of Jen was noticed by her Mum and is now on it's way to New Zealand as a christmas gift!

THANK YOU:clap:

The phots's on this site are a great help to me, they are a blessing as sometimes I cannot get out my flat.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed.
