Promote a Gallery on your deviations!
Add a Gallery Section to your deviations to promote your art! Install the Gallery Section on any of your deviation pages by clicking the “Add Gallery” option to start customizing. You can select your Featured Gallery, Latest Deviations, Adopted Deviations, Buy My Adoptables, or any Gallery or Collection you’ve created. Promote the other pages of your comic, lead viewers to the rest of a photo set or series, or showcase other deviations you have for sale. How you use it is up to you! Gallery Sections are a Core feature. All deviants can preview how it will look, but the preview will only be visible to you. If your Core Membership lapses, your Gallery Section settings will be saved so you don’t have to redo anything when you reactivate Core later. Try it now: View My Gallery or Upgrade to Core
