Points: A Brief Word on Scams and Other NonsenseAlbino.
A second word about scams?
Now, after those brief words, I wanted to say that if you ever see anything like "You give me 10 points and I'll give you 100" IT WILL 100% OF THE TIME BE A SCAM!
If there is some random deviant that you don't know wanting you to give them points for a magical "X" number afterwards, they are LYING and you will never see those points again.
You would think this would be common sense, but it unfortunately is not. At all.
Remember that 10 points is 8 cents. A homeless guy would curse you out if you tried giving him 8 cents. Also, remember that all points transfers are AT YOUR OWN RISK. YOU chose to give those points out. YOU gambled, hoping to get 100 or whatever number the guy promised, and lost. Scammers like that prey on gullible schmucks, so don't be a gullible schmuck.
I wish common sense things like this became a meme and traveled through people's comments instead of "FB

THIS is the direct link.
If you are a seller, you will receive your Rejected and Approved prints emails there with information on why a rejection may have occurred.
If you are a buyer, You will get promotional emails and other such awesomeness, as well. You will also receive all of your transactional emails there, from the "We have received your order" one all the way to the "Your Super Awesome Prints of Great Taste and Skill have shipped out!"
If you have not received an e
Prints 101: Editing your PrintsHello again, it's $renonevada with another article about how to make sure your prints are the best they can be.
This time I'm going back to Prints 101 and tell you how to edit existing prints and add prints to deviations that already exist. This is a frequent question in the Help Desk and in the %printscommunity.
Most of these instructions will apply to submitting a new deviation as well. A brief article was written about new submit here, if you would like to check that out here.
Editing your Print
If you have a deviation with a print already enabled, you will see the button below right on the deviation page, which looks like the image below.
Click that button and you will be taken directly to the Edit page for that print.
You will notice that a few sizes have been pre-selected for you. Those are defaults that deviantART chooses based on the size of you
Prints Tips: Cropping and the Bleed EdgeHello, everybody! I'm $renonevada. For those that don't know, one of my jobs here at deviantART HQ is as quality control for prints. I look at every print before it is purchased for the first time to make sure that it will print properly. Some of the things I look out for are copyright infringement, cropping, pixelation, and to make sure it doesn't violate other policies, such as being too pornographic.
I plan on making a series of journals explaining how to make sure your prints will be approved when they get to me. I know that I'm excited to see the notification letting me know a print has been sold and I want to do what I can to make sure you all see it, as well.
For this journal, I want to speak about Cropping and the Bleed Edge.
This is hands down the number 1 reason why I am forced to reject a print, which in turn will cancel a sale. Because of this, I have tried to make this journal as detailed as possible.
The Bleed Edge is the v
Commission Prices and the HomelessSo I was walking around outside for lunch, like I tend to do, when a homeless person asked me for $0.35, like they tend to do.
I got to thinking about that.
A homeless person asking for spare change is asking for more than what some users charge for commissions here.
35 cents is 28 points... But some people charge 10 and 20 points for commissions.
There are two sides to why people do this. One is they just want to practice and don't actually care about making a lot of points. They just want to draw and this way gives them a little bonus.
The second side is that since everyone else charges this, why should they charge more and possibly miss out on commissions?
As a rebuttal to this, I would say that you should charge more simply because you're worth more than spare change so measly that a bum doesn't even want to ask for that little.
You may lose out on a few commissions, sure, but what you will gain with the ones you do get to do will far outweigh all of the extra work you would have t
A Sneak Peek
Here is a question for you. What costs less and is lighter, but equally awesome?
Here's a hint: It's not an elephant on a diet.
Are you prepared?
I'm 12 years old and what is this?That's right, my dA birthday was yesterday and I've officially been on here for 12 years. In just a year, my account can have its own account here!
Tips and Tricks: Adjust Image ToolIt's $renonevada again with another %printscommunity How To feature.
In my previous article, Prints 101: Editing your Prints, I broke down the basics of editing your print and gave you a n introduction to the Adjust Image tool. With this one, I am going to go into more depth, as there are some things you can do that are not immediately noticeable. I promise to do as little rehashing as possible, so if you have not checked out that previous article and are not comfortable with our prints tools yet, I would suggest checking it out.
Here is the Adjust Image tool, which is found by clicking the Adjust Image button on the Edit Print page.
Funky Little White Boxes
The first thing I want you to notice are the small white squares around the image. You can click and drag the squares to crop your image, if it is necessary.

Recommend A Friend Project: Startup InformationHey all. Welcome to the Recommend A Friend Project. This journal's purpose will be to describe this little project, and to tell you information about signing up. Please be sure to read all the following information carefully in order for things to run smoothly. If you'd like to spread word about this project or even just favorite this journal so it reaches a larger audience, it would be most appreciated!
Basically, I noticed a part of my profile seemed a little blank, so I decided to create a custom box on my page dedicated to featuring deviants of all talents weekly . The box will feature a recommended friend, and the deviant that recommended them. It will also include a tidbit about the recommended friend, including why you should check them out Each duo will be up for a week, and at the end of the month, I will collect all of the features and create one big journal feature, with everyone that participated that month.
