Auto resizing your art since March 18th!I've just been made aware that DA has decided to (temporarily?) take away our choice of showcasing art in any width we desire.Auto resizing your art since March 18th! by alexiuss
That's right- if you upload a new deviation right now, you won't get a choice of "900 width" or "display original size".
Everything I upload, auto-resizes!
I decided to write a news article about this development of interest, since I don't see any official news or topics about this new implementation anywhere... only after 30 minutes found a topic about it on the forum.
What if today I want to upload a comic book artwork that is MEANT to be scrolled horizontally with very little height?
What if today I want to show a wallpaper that's 1800 pixels wide?

|Things you need to know: I am basically never here. DA has basically become a writhing cesspool of softcore pornographers, art thieves, a useless and unresponsive staff that doesn't care one lick about its userbase, terrible memes and macros, Nazi sympathizers, enormous racists, people who think rape isn't a big deal, and ye olde "it's my styyyyyle" whiners, so these days I only ever come here to look at a few specific artists' work. On top of that, real life tends to take precedence over the internet, and I'm not a good enough artist for art to be anything but a hobby, so don't be surprised if I take EONS to respond to any messages, if I even manage. I realize I sound like a crusty old curmudgeon, but that's because, by internet standards... well, I am. If you want to befriend me, try tumblr, although you may be put off by all of my angry liberal blogging. Sorry. : /|
