What's New

Introducing the New Gallery Framed Print

We are proud to announce the Gallery Frame, our newest addition to an already stellar line of Prints Shop products.

DeviantART's new Gallery Frames are an alluring yet durable option for collectors looking to preserve the art they love. In addition to its elegant design and protective qualities, Gallery Frames are also our least expensive framing option, ranging from about $25 to $75! 

Writing Descriptions with Writer (Beta Testers)

As part of our initiative to make formatting and conversation easier and more dynamic, you can now use the Add Media tool to add content and formatting to deviation descriptions, item descriptions, and stack descriptions!

Your Feedback

Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say.
  • Feedback regarding the new username symbols was mixed. Common feedback was in regard to the symbol size or placement, and the lack of symbols for regular deviants.
  • Deviants were positive about the launch of Mentions.
  • Some deviants said that they dislike the icons displayed next to outgoing links.
  • In response to the Discuss topic, deviants mentioned that they generally prefer browsing Newest or Undiscovered rather than browsing What's Hot. A few deviants mentioned not being sure of the difference between What's Hot and Popular.



Deviant and Art Mentions were launched to all deviants last week, and we've since seen deviants being pulled into new and inspiring conversations like never before. Have you mentioned a deviant's art, or has your artwork been mentioned? How frequently do you find yourself mentioning others, or being mentioned by others?

I just submitted a journal and I noticed some spelling errors in my desciption and when I go to edit I can only edit the jornal itself and not my description. How do I do it.

I feel it's important to repost this here as well...

As a custom framer who has worked in the custom framing business for five years, I have to say the new gallery frames are disapointing. Not only is the overall design dated and not in line with current framing trends but there is no way that these are "archival" quality at those prices. You may be offering acid free mats, but that will not protect the print unless it is also framed behind UV glass or acrylic (From your pricing there is no way the acrylic offered is UV blocking as it is generally much more expensive than non UV glass) and mounted on acid free mount board/ foam core. Without these items the prints will fade and discolor. It's not a question of if but when. Misleading advertising, shame on you.

I was only mentioned once since last week, but I've mentioned several since then via submission descriptions, like when I credit another deviant for a base or lineart I use. Mentions are a great addition to the site.

That description writer needs to be released to non-premium members soon because HOLY SHIT THAT IS AWESOME.

I was a beta tester, but I've had severe issues with the new uploader. Along with several things not working right with <*small> and <*blockquote> mark ups, it changes the coding after I hit submit. It'll add several extra <*small> tags, and <*span>, completely screwing up my formatting on HARPG Horse References. 

My suggestion would be that the new editor be an option, much like it is in journals. It's nice for non-formatted submissions, but it's a pain in the rear to edit some existing deviations now.

Hi there! It is optional, same as in Journals. You can switch to HTML mode by pressing ctrl+E (command+E if you're on a Mac), if you don't want to use the Rich Text editor. :)
Argentievetri Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Thank you! This is a big help :)

Another bug I noticed is that when I press cntrl + E, the editor gets much smaller and it doesn't scroll like it should. I know it's probably just because it's a beta feature but I still thought I'd let you know :)
wreckling Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2013   Writer
You'll want to file a ticket about that in %devBUG's Issue Tracker, under the Description Writer project. :)
