Updates to the New Submit Art Page (Available to some Beta Testers)


Please note: The new Submit Art page is being A/B tested -- meaning that we're comparing the effectiveness of two different versions of the feature. If you're a Beta Tester, there's a 50% chance you'll either see the new or old version of the Submit Art page. This is expected behavior and there's no way to switch between the two groups.

Integration of Prints Submission


The Prints submission menu has been incorporated into the Submit page! This change makes for a complete integration of the submission process, allowing you to upload, submit, and sell your art, all in one process, all from one page.

Remember These Settings


A checkbox has been added to the bottom of the Submit page that, when selected, will retain the settings you use for your submission, and then apply them to the next file you submit. For deviants who often submit with the same settings, this will make the submission process more fluid and efficient.


Change Main File


After uploading a file, the "Change Main File" option (available under the pencil menu) allows users to replace the file that they uploaded. Originally, this feature used the old "File Deck" that was part of the old submission process. We've removed the File Deck to immediately allow you to select a file, for efficiency and ease of use.


Try it out!

As always, the Submit page can be reached by clicking on the Submit menu in the top bar of the site. If you come across any problems, let us know by filing a ticket in the #devBUG Issue Tracker under the New Submit project.

Art Thumbnails in Journal Thumbnails


When encountering Journal thumbnails on site, the scrolling thumbnail will now also display thumbnails of the artwork included in those journals, so you can see the included artwork before viewing the Journal!

Try it out! You can see this in effect when searching in the Journals category. If you come across any problems, please let us know by commenting on this Journal.


We've made some changes to the new Submit page, and added a new feature as well!

Hello! I have the same problem as ~Dialgaz44 and few others. When i want to change the main file of the deviation nothing happens. I've reported a bug and i've tried to do what they told me (change the file on another computer), but again, nothing happens. It's been like this for at least 5-6 months, is there a solution?

Hey there, not sure if this has been mentioned beforehand, but when I try to change the main file of a submission to a new one nothing happens and the original is still in the preview? Any idea why this has happened? Been doing this for a good month and a bit now.

Hey $Wreckling~! Lately I've posted the prologue to a fan fiction (through stash) and now I want to add a thumb so people will read it.. But when I go on 'edit' I can't change the main file. Any ideas why? =)

Hi there! When submitting your fanfiction, do you use Sta.sh Writer, or are you using the Enter text option on the Submit page?

Ah, that will be the problem then. You can't add thumbnails to Sta.sh Writer documents at this time. It's something we're looking into, but don't currently have a solution for. Sorry about that! :/

Know what would be cool on the new submit page? When you choose a category and it shows you some thumbnails of examples, it would be great to be able to click those, because I've seen some cool ones and I dunno who they're by and wnat to see the full view lol

Hey there! If you use a phone that doesn't have the most recent Android or iOS release, then we don't actually support it. That said, you can still upload to your Sta.sh via email and then submit them once you've gotten to a computer, if that helps. :)

When you submit your stories, are you using the Enter Text option on the submit page? If so, once the text has uploaded, you should be able to click on the pencil button in the top right and select "Change preview image" and upload from there. Are you able to do that before you encounter any issue?

I hate this change.

I use dA alot on mobile, and using this to submit is complicated and basically prevents me from being active.

The category selections wouldn't load, and I can't scroll to edit my text uploads.

Seriously unimpressed, I want the old page back.

I found some options I like, such as adding to two folders at once and removing download option.

Still won't let me choose a category though.
