Auto resizing your art since March 18th!
I've just been made aware that DA has decided to (temporarily?) take away our choice of showcasing art in any width we desire.
That's right- if you upload a new deviation right now, you won't get a choice of "900 width" or "display original size".
Everything I upload, auto-resizes!

I decided to write a news article about this development of interest, since I don't see any official news or topics about this new implementation anywhere... only after 30 minutes found a topic about it on the forum.
What if today I want to upload a comic book artwork that is MEANT to be scrolled horizontally with very little height?
What if today I want to show a wallpaper that's 1800 pixels wide?
Statistically, only 10-20% of people click the "download" button- that means 80-90% of watchers will miss out on what I want to REALLY show.
Give me back my "display art in resolution that I originally uploaded it in" button.
From the forum post on the issue:

Updates Come to Those Who Wait

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 3, 2014, 2:16 PM

I'm just being mean, I should've updated sooner. :P

I'm living in my university's town for the summer. I haven't lived at my parents' home in a year now but I still haven't told myself that I've moved out. Then I would have to be a grownup and stuff.

I'm currently pursuing a degree in biodiversity (a branch of biology related to ecology), with hopes to start a master's degree soon after. I'm working part time and also participating in a number of projects for various professors who have a need for expendable undergrads, as it were (they jest, but I still watch to make sure they're not experimenting on me).

I also now have a best beloved, as my mother calls him. :) He's pretty fantastic. Very intelligent, loves sailing, a great cook, the whole kit and caboodle. Don't pinch me, I don't want to wake up. :love:


As always I have a few pieces of art on the go. My goal right now is to get 2 done by the end of the summer. At the very least though I'll be keeping up with messages for the next while.


Brighten up your week

They're random this time - I clicked Random Deviant a bunch of times and chose my favourites.
