Site Update


GeneralEdit is your personal creative space on deviantART, a home to images, writing, animation and everything in between. For writers, creation has also been a part of the environment, with the inclusion of Writer . To help further the potential of creation, we've incorporated deviantART muro within!

DA muro

The top bar of deviantART muro has been changed to white to reflect its function as a creation tool, and hovering over the deviantART muro logo in the top left corner will now prompt the menu to appear. In addition, deviantART muro can now be accessed in menu from the menu the top left corner, or by clicking on the "Draw with deviantART muro " button in the right column.

The other new addition is the integration of deviantART muro into Writer . When in Writer , you can pull images from your to include in the Writer document, and those images will have a pencil menu button in the top right corner of the image.

An option labeled "Edit in deviantART Muro " has been added to the pencil menu. When selected, it will transfer you to deviantART muro . Once you click Done in deviantART muro , the file will save, and you'll be returned to Writer to continue where you left off.

  • Art 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!
