I'm assuming a few of you might be missing the plans for DA's new thumbnail layout so I have to make a journal entry about it, I urge everyone to head over to the planned feature's [journal] and leave your input (even though DA seem to be ignoring absolutely everyone even though they leave the same crit), you'll need to be a BETA tester but that can easily be turned on/off in settings.

To give a quick overview I took some shots of my own gallery, though it doesn't quite look as awful as it is since these are shrunken:

OLD


:bulletgreen: Neat and Tidy

NEW


:bulletred: HUGE thumbnails making you see less art at once
:bulletred: Zero breathing room between each thumbnail
:bulletred: Organized grid all gone
:bulletred: Ugly white rim for "odd" picture sizes
:bulletred: Cropped titles
:bulletred: Near unreadable Folder and Comment text under titles
:bulletblue: I guess the left align text is kinda nice though....?

Most of all it will make all your art blur together and give a cluttered unprofessional look, it also takes longer to get a good overview if you're skimming for something in particular....

There used to be an option for disabling shadows under thumbnails. Is that gone completely, or just a premium feature now?

I look at this new layout and I can't see any room to breathe. If that makes any sense.
It just looks unsettling.

i like it and hate it all at once. Why can't they do a combination of the too? You know like making the thumbnail bigger when you mouse over it?

OH NOES CHANGES
。・・(>A<)・・。

... I actually like the new layout. Please, this is nothing to whine about. If they changed the thumbnails so they would be cropped in some way, or the titles obnoxiously large/small, I would understand. This looks nice, in my opinion. The grids forced the thumbnails to be shrunk down so I couldn't see anything on a device smaller than a laptop. Seriously though, aren't nice-sized previews better?

It does crop too tall images in a really ugly way, though none was included in my screenshot. When previws are this big it also discourages people actually clicking on it to get a better look since it's already so clear. From what I've heard phone surfing people say new is worse for phones too.
