Site Update



In addition to the feedback dA gathered from Beta Testers on the size testing tool, this week we're continuing our research by implementing a test that randomly assigns Beta Testers a different size for viewing thumbnails.


Over the next few days, dA will be rolling out a tool that will let you use Writer's toolbar and sidebar when commenting on files in . This will allow you to easily format your comments, and also give you the opportunity to include images in your comments on files.

In addition, for artists looking to collaborate or receive visual feedback on their work, this tool will allow deviants to make use of the recently launched integration of deviantART muro in to draw on the original file.
