New deviantART ThumbnailsHey folks!New deviantART Thumbnails3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may remember a while back we showed off some brand new thumbnails in #hq's Journal. Well, after many weeks of porting and tweaking based on community feedback, we finally got these brand new thumbs ready for beta testing!
The new thumbnails
UPDATE (May 19, 2012): Based on feedback received, we've updated the new thumbnails to be justified. Thumbnails are now spaced out across the rows, making them flush against the left and right sides of the page. When a browser's window is too small, justification cannot happen without leaving larger awkward spaces. In these cases, justification is turned off and thumbnails become left aligned. We think these changes present the most appealing interface for both cases.
For those of you who didn't see the new thumbs when they were previewed a month back, here's a re

(Sorry for spamming, but I really want to set things straight. I don't like knowing that someone is trying to make my friends and I sound like shit, when we didn't even do anything wrong.)
Hey everyone. This is journal to warn everyone, there is someone who is out there on DA (Making new/fake accounts.) and tumblr, personally messaging our followers (You guys) and telling them things about us (Hannah, Orange, & I). (Idk what "things" but apparently it's not good, and they're trying to make us seem like we are horrid people ((Hannah and I)).)
I didn't really want to post this journal at all, I didn't even want to make this a public kind of thing, but now that the troll has gone and made it public, I have no choice. Everyone agreed that it would be better to

Thanks so much to everyone for helping contact the original artists, submitting reports, commenting on the stolen works to redirect attention to the proper original artists and doing what they can to get this issue resolved!
Quỳnh Anh (M è o M ỡ)'s account has since been "deactivated". I'm not familiar with Flickr's terminology so I don't know if this means Flickr banned her or if she chose to deactivate her account herself. But I hope through it all Quỳnh Anh (M è o M ỡ) has learned her lesson: don't steal art!
I hope this brings fruitpunch1 and all other artists involved at least some sense of closure
I think it's important to voice outrage and demonstrate to those who do wrong that what they're doing is not acceptable and will not be looked upon nicely by the general public be it art th
Walkthrough: TestingThis is based off an article I was asked to write for Model Mayhem, I’ve edited it to make it hopefully more interesting and useful to those of you looking to test with agencies, or who want more information about how tests work - this isn’t necessarily an example of a standard test, it’s more to show how unpredictable the world of Fashion is and hopefully to teach you to just roll with it!Walkthrough: Testing2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Tests (sometimes referred to online as TFP but only ever called tests in the real world) are when people come together and collaborate - essentially offering their work for free in return for photos for their portfolios.
Tests sometimes involve a full team (hair, make up, styling etc) or sometimes just involve the photographer and a model, there’s no set rules.

You use the device in your hands to look at something and you press a button to capture the image you want.
That's the gist of it, but there's considerably more to it than that, especially if you want to take something that accurately represents your intentions.
For Project Educate, I'll be featuring some deviation tutorials on Photography that I like and hope that you yourself will find useful as a budding, seasoned or humbled expert photographer.
They will be broken down in the form of Technical and Creative tutorials. Some will be focused on numbers and basic ideas to compose and make a quality photo and others will be focused on what you can do with those techniques to make advanced visual creations.
For the most part, these tutorials apply to anyone that owns a camera, whether it be your compact, point and shoot or a DSLR.

New deviantART Thumbnails - Thumb GridHello again, everyone!New deviantART Thumbnails - Thumb Grid2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Back in April we launched the new deviantART thumbnails to beta. Over the last few months we've received a great deal of feedback from the community on them. We're always working to ensure that we put out products that are best for our community, and so today we'd like to announce some new options being added to these thumbnails to give you the best browsing experience.
Very quickly, we'd like to recap what the New Thumbnails are, and the feedback we've received on them. We made the decision to change our thumbnails based on a multitude of factors. While the smaller thumbnails did their job, there's always a great deal of room for improvement as we move toward the future and look for better ways to present your art to the deviantART community, and the world.
To further this, we increased the size of the t

Project Educate: Composition BasicsThe action of putting things together; formation or construction.Project Educate: Composition Basics3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The term composition simply means 'putting together' and is applied to all forms of art. In this respect, composition is all about the placement, arrangement or organisation of the individual elements within a photo. The composition of a photograph is what catches the viewer's attention and is what makes the image pleasing to the eye. By practicing and developing basic composition techniques, you can produce pieces of work which can recreate the impact of the original scene.
Some tips for developing composition skills are;
Look around using the viewfinder every time you take a picture.Look at each element and how it impacts the overall composition.Become familiar with your camera. Learn how it works, play around with settings and really get to know how each setting changes the overall image.Experiment and practice. Experiment and practice.

New deviantART ThumbnailsIn the weekly Site Updates, we've been telling you all about the changes that have been launched to deviantART, getting your feedback, and reporting all the bugs that have been fixed.New deviantART Thumbnails3 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
This change is a little different, since it involves a feature that has been in place for a long time. We think it deserves an announcement of its own, ahead of time.
The current deviantART thumbnails (the smaller versions of deviations) have served the community well for years; however, there's always room for improvement.
Some of the problems with existing thumbnails are: they leave a lot of blank space around them, there isn't a lot of room for text for literature deviations, and the thumbnails don't present very tall/wide images well.
The New Thumbnails
Now, we've created a new style of thumbnail, which hopes to solve a lot of these problems.

Update to deviantART Mobile
In October, we launched the new mobile site to everyone, and while we stand by its design and functionality, we received valid statements regarding older devices not being compatible with the new layout. With this in mind, we've brought back the old mobile site for older devices, with the option to switch to one or the other depending on your preference.
For said devices, a banner will appear on the main deviantART page that says, "Touch here to switch to deviantART's legacy mobile site," which will reload the page with the old mobil
