Photomanip Newsletter December 2018

Sun Dec 9, 2018, 6:43 AM

Hello friends!

We congratulate you on the onset of winter and the coming holidays and wish you a happy and merry season! This is the last photomanip review for this year:

:new: The latest news

:bulletred: Eclipse…
Eclipse Change Log: December 5, 2018

Eclipse is the main news which occupies our minds lately. Personally I didn’t have time to try it yet, and can’t judge, but I read reviews about it, both positive and negative, and the only thing I can do is to share some of them:
re: EclipseAlright, where do i begin? After having used the Eclipse Beta for a while, i have collected a bunch of thoughts – and i have also submitted lots of them as feedback through the appropriate channels. Regardless, i wanted to have all of them collected in one place, and this journal seems a good a place as any. Be warned, though, this is going to be fairly lengthy. And also rather negative, i’m afraid, so i apologize in advance if i seem overly blunt. But never forget, if i seem harsh, it is only because i care deeply about this place, and i would hate to see it gone or change into something different.
Anyway, i’ll begin with my conclusion, so you’ll all know where i stand:
Eclipse looks like an iPad app that has been blown up to fill a regular desktop monitor.
My second conclusion would be: If i wasn’t a member of DeviantArt before and was looking for a new site to feature my art prominently, then yes, i could see myself j
DeviantArt Eclipse

Yes I want to write one too.

I love where Eclipse is going!

No I'm not writing this just because I want to show my goodwill to the staff.

DA desperately need a change both front and backend. Eclipse uses a solid foundation (React) to bring you a new experience. And get rid of some legacy code that rests here since 2008 and before.

But could DeviantArt not simply extend existing stuff?

I think they try, but it's less error-prone to write something new instead to write modern code with legacy one that is 10 years old. Because you would have to add all the workarounds and exceptions for the old code again. Did you know that was able to display PDFs? Because of advance in technology and browsers this feature broke.

But they remove the custom box!

Yep, I use mine for the Daily Deviation Informations that could probably find another nice place too. No one said so far that there isn't going to come an alternative. But with the current journal editor we get a powerful tool that DA can extend as they wish with a clean codebase. @danlev I want embed-able cross-site content

My favourite thing about Eclipse so far

"llamas on fire"

The notes are easier to access nowThe Journal editor has a lot of potentialThe Pro Gallery Layouter and it's consistent useThe profile header, but I wish to reposition the imageI think gallery organisation goes a lot faster now, I don't mind the missing css for galleries. I had a userscript that removed them for me, because they usually looked awful anyway The Shop stuff, even tough I'm not doing commissions at the moment. But I consider open my shop here again.The Deviation pages and the love meter, I think especially with the love meter you can make a powerful algorithm to help you find new art that you like.Deviation backgrounds, they work great with less common formats like my diamond shaped PNG.

Would be cool to have some sort of product mockup on the Deviation Pages. You know with some lamps above it and simulating an actual wall in a room. This is especially something useful when DA wants to get big with the print service again.

The remove of the category-tree, labyrinth. I'm actually very glad this is gone. It makes the use of tags more important and you simply could write it as tag where you would place your deviation. I did that in the past anyway.

The dark theme: I like it, some legacy journal css need an update or else there is white font on white background - I'm glad you can switch between the light and dark theme, because they usually look okay with the bright theme, you all forgot to reset the css at the beginning of your custom journal skins - sloppy code .

Needs improvement on eclipse

Scraps, I think they are a very special case and gave the developers already a lot of headache. The Scrap folder managing just doesn't work. When I open it there are no Deviations listed that I assign as Thumbnail for the scraps folder.

Multiple selecting Notifications to get rid of them.

Finding the exact comment from the notification view is not easy, there is actually no link and you need to reply via the notification view.

Realtime notifications when they happen, with the native notification API. Shouldn't be that big deal with React now

Adding a deviation to a group is too small, especially with groups with long folder names gives you only the option to guess the correct folder.

DeviantArt API updates, I would love if this would happen. Since I became CV I'm more ready to make 3rd party applications than before. I know the API has low priority

Okay that's it for now - Love you guys

Eclipse: The Destruction of DeviantArtDear all,
Well, there have been many many many journals posted in the past weeks regarding Eclipse. I think it's safe to say lots of people have gone mental, and the site has sort of imploded with freak outs. I realised I haven't actually openly talked about Eclipse yet. I made a poll to see if you guys liked it, but that's about it. 
I don't want to repeat what others have already said more eloquently than I could. I'd recommend reading my partner in crime, Tanya's, recent journal: Eclipse, toxic community and why we can do better
I'm just gonna be really practical for two-seconds. Think about it this way. Whether you have a valid point or not, nobody is going to listen to the person running around in the streets yelling it's the end of the world. Heck, maybe it is the end of the world, but that lady running in the streets screaming it is just gonna be dub

:bulletred: Throwback Thursday on CRPhotomanipulation

I remind Throwback Thursdays is a series of features, organized by Gejda:icongejda:  and lauraypablo:iconlauraypablo:. They include include awesome DDs, fascinating tutorials, beautiful manips and outstanding stock:
Throwback Thursday #21HELLO THERE!
Throwback Thursdays are a bi-weekly series of features over here at CRPhotomanipulation, organised by  Gejda and lauraypablo. We're going to show you four things - three Daily Deviations, three older tutorials, three random works from our gallery from last month, and three older stock photos. Once a month, you're going to see stunning works that are at least a year old, and two weeks later, you're going to see beautiful works from the month before. At the end of each journal, there's going to be a question and sometimes, a few words from us or other deviants from the community to start off a discussion. 
Also, we shamelessly stole the idea from CRLiterature. They were first. 
Let's start!


:bulletred: AMA is back!

The AMA (Amazing Manipulation Award) is an award given to photo-manipulation artists for their arts, dedication, imagination, innovation, ideas, creativity, etc., which is remarkable for the community of manipulation, and deserves an award. Winners will be featured and will receive a prize. Some time ago this project broke off but now it’s back with some changes. The next AMAs will be different, read this journal to understand better:

I, Lora-Vysotskaya:iconlora-vysotskaya:, was honored to be awarded with Deviousness for December 2018! I’m so proud to get such an awesome recognition of my humble merits! Many thanks to DA team and all my friends who made December 1st the most special my day on DevianfArt!

Introducing lora-vysotskaya
My name is Lora Vysotskaya, I was born and live in Ukraine. When I was a child, I loved to draw. I didn't learn drawing, but I loved to copy illustrations from books and photos from magazines about cinema. After that short period in my youth, I didn't do anything creative until accidentally stepped into the world of photo manipulation -- 4.5 years ago. It happened when my husband asked me to make a couple of collages for his work. At that time I h

:bulletred: A bit of humor 

Do you want to know how CVs select Daily Deviations?;) Read their joking answers here:
How CVs Select Daily Deviations
Hey all!
I gave my watchers the chance to win the power to dictate what my next journal was going to be. death-tribble won and wanted an article addressing how CVs select DDs, either serious or humorous. I decided to go the humorous route :dummy:
I basically select Daily Deviations based on the photographer who has the best equipment. Obviously, it's impossible to take a good photograph without thousands of euros worth of material. If you don't have state of the art camera equipment, there's no chance I'm ever going to give you a DD, sorry!
I make sure to DD the same 10 or so people all of the time, new people are just not interesting to me. Plus usually the artists I feature are already popular, so I KNOW they're good!
1 - The first thing that I'm looking for a DD is big boobies. You know, a manga/anime girl

deviantART Artist’s storydeviantART 

I decided to rename the rubric “Monthly spotlight” to “Artist’s story”, because recently its content looks rather like little life stories written by the artists themselves, than just my presentations. Btw I invoke skillful photomanip artists to share their stories. Tell us about yourself and your art, what is photomanipulation for you, how you became and growing as artists, describe your way on DeviantArt, share some your secrets and advices with beginners. Please send me your stories by note and I will put them into the next newsletters with your best works together.

Today our guest is Hazel :iconwhimsicalblue:, an amazing artist, a wonderful person and a great friend:

“My artistic journey started since I stumbled across DA. As an artist, I struggled a lot in learning photoshop, it’s method and techniques, it was different than sketching( I used to do sketching) as it consists of stock images and brushes. I vividly remember having a difficult time in understanding the idea of digital brush as it was foreign to me and not like handling ariel brush. I quit the idea of quitting art with the support and encouragement of my fellow artists on DA. DA is special to me as I met many wonderful and beautiful artist.
Art for me is an expression of freedom. It’s a journey of a free soul wandering in a new realm, new paths and new ideas. I believe here dreams come true. I prefer giving undivided attention to my art than doodling between many artworks.The best art is the one which speaks to it’s viewer, when words fail. It’s an expression of art. I choose my stocks carefully and am very particular about the colours, texture and composition to evoke feelings of love, sadness and peace. I experiment with lots of adjustments.( my favourites are curve, selective color and color lookup).
My emotional art defines me. To me it’s like a storytelling, a poetry, it’s an escape from reality. So I roughly sketch a story before working on any project. I lay the base with actual scenery and concept especially if it’s surrealistic or conceptual theme. It’s here that I like to challenge myself the most.

“Art should startle the viewer in to thinking about the meaning of life” ~ Antoni Tapies
Art without meaning is just like a day without sun. As human beings, we need art to enable us to gain or share ideas. To create art from heart and soul is to bring that beauty alive. The key to be a successful artist is to create an imaginative world with balance and conscious use of skills!”

Thanks a lot to Hazel for her wonderful story!

Photo manipulation, I believe it is an amazing concept. I think some pictures are left in pieces like a incomplete story waiting for a single person who can join them and complete the story. It is amazing....
