Site Update



  • The New Submission Process

​DeviantART is proud to announce a new way to submit and share your art. dA's new submission process is powered by, our portable creative studio, making it quicker, easier, and more streamlined to submit art than ever before!

Bugs fixesEdit


  • Several obsolete, deleted categories still had deviations in them.
  • Firefox for Android was not recognized as a mobile browser.
  • For a brief period, Journals would always submit to the Personal category, no matter what category was selected.
  • Banned users could get stuck on the Llama Trade page.
  • For a short time, the navigation buttons for comments on some deviation pages were not working.
  • The Share button for Pinterest was broken on Prints pages.
  • The main menu was not working properly for Android browsers.
  • Blocked users visiting a critiqueable deviation received an odd message when trying to leave a critique.
  • .png images were not allowed into some categories where jpegs were allowed.
  • Under some circumstances, the profit display shown on a deviant's My Earnings page could be off by 1 penny due to a rounding error. This only affected the profit's display, and not the profit itself.
  • The "Next" and "Previous" buttons on a deviant's own Gallery and Favorites were briefly non-functional.

  • There were some rendering issues in comments for Safari 6 users with Mountain Lion.
  • Clicking "done" on Writer while deviantART muro was still saving changes made to an image in the document would cause Writer to exit before the drawing changes had been saved.

  • Some formatting issues occurred for literature and Journal thumbnails, particularly when included in a Journal.
