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.

Thanks for replying to my music question on midis. I play Bach on the organ but got all sorts of music software and my yahama keyboard to be creative. I don't have dsl as I live in the country so I don't download mp3's. You do nice photos.
