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.
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?
Statistically, only 10-20% of people click the "download" button- that means 80-90% of watchers will miss out on what I want to REALLY show.
Give me back my "display art in resolution that I originally uploaded it in" button.
From the forum post on the issue:
"We've recently changed our requirements for t

Hi there!

After watching you for years now... I still see your cat's fur so healthy, so smooth, so shiny that I no longer can resist. I have to ask!
What do you do to keep them look this gorgeous? They're not even that young anymore if I recall correctly. They look so beautiful, so relaxed, so healthy... it can be clearly seen that you're a very good owner. :) It's really a pleasure to the eye to look at Loki and Theo. What's your "magic"? :D

Have an awesome day!

Hi Semy,

Theo and Loki are about 4 years old now so still in their prime :).

They both keep themselves very well groomed (and will groom one another's heads), and both have naturally soft fur (Loki's fur in particular - which is a trait of Bengals - is velvety soft) so I can't take any credit really for the condition of their fur! They're both indoor cats, which has pros and cons. They have plenty of cat trees and places to curl up though and I also walk Loki outside for half an hour on a leash most days and also take Theo out from time to time as well. They also get exercise from chasing one another and Loki insists I play with him for at least 20 minutes a day as well with a wand toy :).

I'm pleased you enjoy the photos :). I was very happy with the most recent one of Loki where I finally managed to properly capture the colours and patterns of his eye and some of the glitter in his coat! I've started sorting through old photos recently so I may end up posting some more kitten photos of them if any leap out at me which I didn't post back when I took them.
