  • The New deviantART Comments

One of deviantART's strongest assets is the community's ability to bring self-expression into conversation, pushing the boundaries of creativity to a new level. We've improved creative communication by launching a new way to comment on deviantART, with access to formatting, emoticons, and, for Premium Members, the ability to include artwork and files in your comments.

A new tool for importing images into deviantART muro has been launched!

When using deviantART muro, there is a new "Import" button located in the right column, beneath the opacity slider. When clicked, the sidebar will change and expand to match the style of Writer's sidebar. This change reinforces consistency between products, and also makes it easier for files to be imported with a single click, be it from your computer, your, or even from your deviantART Gallery!

  • The one-month Premium Membership option can now be purchased with PayPal or deviantART Points.
  • Premium Membership rebilling cancellation and updating notifications were visually improved.
