Why deviantART Will Never Be Perfect"This isn't worthy of a Daily Deviation!" "This user should be banned!" "OMG, moderators please remove this news article!!" "deviantART is going downhill... "I can't even begin to count the times I have heard a complaint regarding deviantART. Gallery changes, changes to the overall layout, the introduction of llamas, a new moderator, a Daily Deviation, a new senior member... you name it, I've seen people complaining about it. No wait, not complaining but BITCHING.Calling people names, making threats, rallying up friends/fans - it seems people would do anything to get their point across and have their say. And, sadly, in most cases these kinds of complaints turn into personal vendettas. All of a sudden EVERYTHING deviantART does is bad. EVERY SINGLE THING.They don't cater to you specifically? They never asked what is your stance on llamas? They never even wanted to know what you thought of that oh-so-famous deviant green? NO?Well in all honesty, let's be realistic here. W

Tips and Tricks for PhotographyI'm fairly new to photography, and I always love hearing new tips. So I thought the best way to help myself as well as others was to contact some people I admire. I've gotten some great responses, and here are the results!1. JessicaBader says:-When shooting outdoors, the sun should be behind you (unless you're shooting the sunrise/set).-If you're taking a close-up of the face, put your focus on the eyes.-Use a tripod for long shutter speeds so that your subject is always in focus. 2. Ursylla says:-"Practice from the heart and not competitively... following trends in photography gets you nowhere because all trends come to an end eventually." 3. mediocre-matt says:-"Experiment with different techniques. Don't be afraid of what other people say, just do what YOU want to. When it comes to photography, be selfish. It's all about YOU.":
TMD: 10 X 1010 X 10: A History of deviantARTProud to be a deviant? This history belongs to you. Is it long? You bet it's long-- ten years in the making long, told by ten of the deviants who built deviantART and kept it alive. So brew up a fresh pot, print up some pages, and sit down to the story of the decade
matteo (co-founder, deviantART): I was eighteen when deviantART first opened its doors. I was so young and naive. I had this idealistic vision of an online community of artists, coming together to promote creativity and the freedom of expression. We had no idea that it would actually succeed beyond our wildest dreams.jark (co-founder, deviantART): At the time deviantART was conceived, I was living in Chiba, Japan. I had been working on websites for a few years and was actively brainstorming ideas for a new website. My main experience up through that point had been in the MP3 scene; I worked on a site called CyberTropix, briefly ran a skin
Surviving (and thriving) on deviantARTSURVIVING (AND THRIVING) IN THE MINTY GREEN JUNGLEFINDING HAPPINESS ON DEVIANTARTIf you want to get something out of it, put something into it. Visibility on deviantART is mostly a numbers game; there are so many users that unless you're interacting with others, even the highest-quality work may go nearly unseen. This advice sounds like a truism, but people seem to have difficulty understanding that no, their work is not some kind of miracle that breaks all the rules. Don't expect the community to fawn all over you for existing. You have to make them see you.Don't expect the community to fawn over you, period. These people are usually your peers, but even if you don't think they are - they are not your buttmonkeys. Don't treat people that way.The people who let you treat them terribly are not the ones you want. Some people will allow, and even encourage you to treat them like slaves. The
Popularity: A refreshing viewI've read stuff in other people's journals (and in the forums, continuously) about dA being a popularity contest, how unfair it is that some people are popular and other, more deserving people aren't etc. And I'd just like to say...umm, no! There is no such thing as 'deserving' or 'undeserving' when it comes to art, because art gains popularity simply from people looking at it and liking it, and there is no one type of art that 'deserves' to be liked more than any other type. Art is about the message it sends out, inspiring the viewer, getting a reaction, making people think. And it doesn't have to be some amazing complex detailed painting that took six weeks to do to have this effect on people who look at it.I don't want to get into a whole 'what is art' thing here, cause that's not what this is about. It's about dA and the perceived popularity contest. People whine about 'unknown' artists not getting enough

Photoshop tutorial- PS basics for newbiesPhotoshop tutorialsAnd I decided to make more useful journals You have to wait for my next tutorial A LOT, so I decided to make short tutorials here...in journals.

So in this article you'll find tutorials: How to make layers, How to change color to a layer, How to make groups/folders, How to change background color, How to rotate canvas and all basics in tool menu on the right side.
