Calligraphy: A Scribe's Notes Art Blog
Since the changeover to the new ArtId format, I have noticed that the thumbnails of some work are getting cropped in an unflattering way. The thumbnail is taken from the center of the main image so if the focal point of your work is in a lower or higher quadrant it will get cropped off. This applies especially to objects versus 2-D works. If you are experiencing this problem with your work, consider re-cropping your pictures and re-uploading them. This will serve two purposes, your work will be considered by browsers faster and if you are a Gold or Silver member, your work will appear on the home page recent upload scroll. Did you know that when you click on a thumbnail and get a larger image you can click on that image and get an even bigger close up? Many more descriptive and style terms have been added so check and see if there are some new ones that may better categorize your work. These categories and descriptions are used for browsing purposes to help the browser narrow down their field of search. It's not to pigeon hole or make definitive statements about your work. We have also added "other" to all choices but most people will not be searching by "other". Check your site and see if anything needs adjusting so your work will show in the best possible light.
