Site Update



  • Coming Soon: New Submit

Beta testers are currently trying out the new submission process for, deviantART's upload and publishing platform. This new version includes a simplified and tidier interface that makes it easier to understand and use. The feedback on this new process has been very positive. If you'd like to try it out early, upgrade to a Premium Membership and enable Beta Testing in your Account Settings.


Just over a month ago, was released a preview of deviantART's new thumbnails. Since then, we've been tweaking the display of the thumbnails based on community feedback. Beta testers are now testing the new thumbnails throughout the site, including browse, search, galleries, and favourites.
