Image Adjustments and Cropping in deviantART muro
Last week, we launched a new set of tools for Muro to Beta Testers, and thanks to the efforts of the Beta Testers in reporting bugs, and mudimba's quick work fixing those bugs, we are launching these tools to everyone!
The new "Adjust" panel allows you to adjust a variety of color settings, including contrast, tint, and color temperature. These changes can be applied to an individual layer or the whole image, giving you an even broader means of creating dynamic works of art!

WE ALL LOVE PRINT!
I mean - we REALLY REALLY REALLY love print!
Nobody - NO-BO-DY! - wants to kill print. Not Madefire, not deviantART, not any other digital art, comic or literature provider. That isn't the point of digital at all! That conversation should be forced to stand in a corner with a dunce hat on, because it really is THAT dumb and isn't worth our time. Don't look at it. Don't talk to it. And definitely don't feel sorry for it! It's a trolling meme and doesn't have a worthy or generous thought in it's very small brainpan. It's an evil little turd with a mean spirit and no imagination.
And don't feed it either!
Let's rip open our skulls and publish directly into our brains shall we? Let's stream story-forms to our liminal cortex and mainline creativity! Let's unlearn everything we thought we knew about words, pictures, motion, sound, and the mediums we know so well, bec

:iconestunt:Some thoughts from Matt (mattdanna)
Being raised Roman Catholic, Christmas is a big ordeal for my family. On Christmas Eve, we would always celebrate Christmas with my Mom's side of the family and we would participate in this weird yankee swap gift exchange. It's such an evil game because only one person really ends up being happy with the gift they receive, and everyone else wants to strangle that person. Unfortunately, I always ended up with a gag gift. On Christmas Day, we would go to church and then have my Dad's side of the family over for a gluttonous late lunch/early dinner.
I participated in these annual traditions for 21 years. Last Christmas was the first year I did not travel home for the holidays. I had just moved out to Los Angeles a couple mon

Cyan, or aqua, is the colour midway in the spectrum between blue and green. Other blue-greens include turquoise, teal, and aquamarine.
Some blue pigments and dyes are made from minerals and plants, while others, such as Prussian blue and synthetic ultramarine, have been created by chemists in the laboratory.

Our Ongoing Battle Against Malicious Ads
Toward the end of April, deviantART released a community-wide news article that outlined and reaffirmed our stance against advertisements that auto-play audio, contain pop-ups or redirects, and promote virus or malware activity. Three months later, we'd like to provide an update on our efforts to block malicious advertising from running on the site.
We're taking these concerns seriously
DeviantART takes all concerns on this topic very seriously and immediately implemented a number of changes to reduce the chance those type of ads would get served by our ad partners. These initial steps w

For the fellow Snaiad fans!I have an idea that I'd like to explore! There has been a bit of a lack of Snaiad related artwork around here lately, so I think I'd like to invoke some fan-art creativity with this "contest".For the fellow Snaiad fans!8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so it's not really a contest, 'cause there's nothing to win, but I think it would be fun if we came up with artwork of Snaiadi citizens interacting in some way with the planet's local fauna. Like, for example, we have humans playing with their pets, visiting creatures at a zoo, tending to a sick/injured creature, taking biological surveys, or even getting attacked by a Snaiadi creature! The idea for this came from the fact that there isn't a whole lot of Snaiad art involving interaction with either the creatures or the environment.
So anyway, if anybody is interested in doing this, I'd be really excited to see what you come up with! I wish I could offer some kind of prize, but maybe just the satisfaction of creating something like this would be enough.

■ Why did you started suggesting Daily Deviations?
It feels great giving other artists the opportunity to have their art recognized. Not to mention it's a great challenge to have the suggestion accepted, and I adore challenges. Every moderator is entitled to his or her own opinion on each work, and it's rather fun figuring out where they stand.
■ How did you become aware of the Daily Deviations?
Like many others, I one day saw the strip at the bottom of certain pages throughout the site. I wondered why those specific pieces were being featured like that, and after browsing several of them I noticed the little badge each one had stating it was selected as a Daily Deviation. The curiosit
PROCRASTINATIONProcrastination... Being a sloth... it's a disease.PROCRASTINATION4 years ago in Personal More Like This
All of us struggle with it. On certain days you just don't feel like doing nothing at all. Other days you feel that you worked hard on something and that you're owed time-off for it. And there's that period where you KNOW you should've been working on something; after a lot of time have passed you eventually find yourself wondering WHY you even went along doing nothing for so long.
We're not perfect creatures, it HAPPENS.
But being a procrastinator compared to being a hard-worker is a measure of how serious you take yourself.
If you have a regular 9-5, come home whether it's a long commute or short one, and then taking care of family matters (wife, kids, or parents), it can be pretty hard to keep yourself focused. That's a valid reason for struggling trying to stay focused on a creative project. Life is hard in that aspect. You're definitely a hard-worker in that regard. If you do all that and then work your
