Giving curators the recognition they deserve.
With the launch of the Watch Feed, you can also now watch Collections made by other deviants. Collections are surfaced through the Watch Feed, creating a new way to discover and expose artwork on DeviantArt. Collections have been given additional exposure by appearing on deviation pages as well as tag pages.
“I am loving Collections as well. I am proud of my Collections and am glad they will finally be getting notice. And it also gives more exposure to the artists as this is more viral in nature than simply faving something then making an art feature journal to share it with others.” —GillianIvy
When you watch someone, you’ll automatically be watching all of their Collections — but you can also choose to enable or disable watching Collections on a deviant-by-deviant basis.
To watch only specific Collections from a deviant, uncheck “Collections” on their watch settings (now you’re watching none of their Collections), and then visit one of their Collections and then click “+Watch Collection.”
If you’d prefer not to have one of your
Collections displayed on other deviants' Activity Feeds, you can visit the Collection Options area of your Collection and check "Disable watching".
Collections on Deviation Pages
Art curators are among the unsung heroes of DeviantArt, and with these new changes, we’re now surfacing Collections on deviation pages, allowing you to discover curations of artwork that include that specific deviation.
Using the new Tags feature, you can now tag your Collections with relevant topics. Tags will display on your Collections. Relevant Collections will be displayed on tag pages, giving more exposure to curators’ work.
Share your thoughts on the new Collections features by posting a Status Update using the #Collections tag.Artist credit: Wall of Art by Roky320
