Group Abuse: Killing our CommunitiesGroups! What a great feature on deviantART. They kicked off last year and have been a huge success. Nothing but good has come from the groups system or has it? I can tell you that right now under the layer of hype lies a deep, dark problem that's slowly killing our communities, unknown artists, and our ART. I'm going to tell you my own story, then explain.
I'm the founder of a large photography group here on deviantART. We've been using the groups system since the very first day they officially released. At the time of this writing, we have almost 3600 members. We've grown rapidly to become one of the largest and most successful photography groups around. As a founder, it's always interesting to see how your group is doing. It's a lot of fun to look at statistics, new members, submissions, and comments. Until now.
We had an excellent discussion in our group chat debating the following issues. Together, we came up with these issues and decided to raise them to the communit

Image theft: Helpful info and interviewLately, over the last few months, and really, over the last few years, there has been a lot of talk about image theft, and copyright infringement. There is little that can be done about it, its just a fact of eLife they say.. It is if you let it. There are several ways to combat image theft, be it in photoshop, or in the court room.
So you've been ripped.. Now What?
Firstly, let me say that image ripping is wrong, but we all rip music, so there is also the debate about that.. Is it wrong? Some argue the fact that people are collecting your work, using sites like flikr to collect their favorite images into one place.. Is that wrong? YES. deviantART offers free accounts with a favorite option.. Which i have seen many an account with only favorites.
That leads us to blogs. One of my images was used on an emo blog based in Russia, i couldn't understand anything, but after having it translated, m
About DDs, GMs and Admins-What you Should have KWhat you should have known...
...Before Posting that comment
on the newest DD that you thought was "undeserving" of a DD.
Daily Deviations are a 24 hour feature. Nothing more.
GMs select DDs based on their own feelings towards a piece of art. As artists themselves, they do not always reflect every deviants beliefs and views of art1.
A deviant receiving a DD does not have any say in the matter. In fact they probably didn't know they even had a chance at getting a DD!
...Before sending that GM a disrespectful note
about their newest given DD.
Gallery Moderators are volunteers
GMs are human just like you
GMs feature art they think is amazing. If they featured it they had a reason behind it.
Using Swear words and disrespect tends to get you ignored instead of an answer. Try writing a GM with respect.
Try seeing it their way from t

How to make your uploads StrongerHow to make your uploads Stronger
This is a guide to making your uploads more individual and taken more seriously.
Not a absolute answer guide, just some suggestions.
* Try not to upload 10 images in a row, make sure you only upload 1-2 each day.
People need time to look through their center and if you upload to much, they are most likely to jump over a few of them.
The other thing is that it might seem to people that you just snapshot and upload right away, even though you might used a lot of time on it.
*What title should i give my image? Make sure you give a title you think suits the image, a image with a strong title makes the artwork
itself better and change the way people see the theme and concept.
My suggestion is that you think about the feeling you had when you worked on the image, or the feeling you want the image to show.
Let`s say you worked on a painting that reminded you about your childhood. You there have many titles; Childhood

C O M P O S I T I O N - simple guidelinesAfter reading some photography books such as Petersens Big Book of Photography, 2009; Learning to See Creatively, 2003; and many other books, local magazine, and international magazine lately, desire has been filled my heart to share something here.
Its all about C O M P O S I T I O N, why? Simply because composition has been the most important things in art. Every painting, drawing, and even music needs a nice composition within them to be enjoyed by people. And since photography is an art, I can say that composition is its soul. Do you agree with me?
The thing now is composition comes from our heart combined with our mind. It is almost impossible to formulate it. You can learn it from your own experience or others experiences, but there isnt stick rules to it. Arts never have any rules. Thats why I called this guidelines, not rules, of composition. Just to make it easier for all who want to start their ph
