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:

Hey deviants!
What are you all up to?
I started selling junk at a consignment shop about 2 months ago, opened up a patreon (few months ago) and working on trying not to go insane this 2017 for many MANY reasons.

What about you?

I'm enjoying the consignment shop so far - it gives me something other than art to obsess over, and satisfies my scavanger craving - now I have an excuse to junk for things I don't need, because I can sell them in the shop. XD

Anyway. Ramble over. Feel free to ramble back.

ps: I came here to advertise the 25% off my etsy until the end of January (code: 25MADMAN) but realized I'd also just like to reach out for the sake of reaching out.
sometimes trying to be an artist and a business person feels so conflicting.

is that your studio in the ID picture?....awesome place to let your creativity flow.....
zyphryus Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014
Yes it is! I have a studio in an old car factory - transformed into many many spaces for artists, offices, services etc.  Rent isn't bad and even though its a stretch each month, its worth having.
