Progams for Painting/vector/photomanipulationI tried to order them from most interesting to less interesting ones, thinking as the drawing ones as most interesting and photomanipulation ones the least interesting (also, there are a lot of more photomanipulation apps than drawing apps). For me open source is a strong point in favour while commercial is a strong point against.
All icons should include a link to the official page. You can report to me if not. Also, take a look to Alternativeto.net . Painting programs.
The list is not complete, obviously. If you know about some software not listed here, please tell me in the comments.
Krita. Most people talk wonders about it. Open source. Free.
My Paint. Open source. Free.
Llama (en/es)Hello! You gave me a llama. I give you a llama back.
You are encouraged to use the icons I adapted to deviantart to show which tool, software, company or social web you used in the making of a deviation, in a journal, status post or comment.
I also doing some stocks.
If you use a tool, software or social web (or credit a character or company) I don't have the icon for, please tell me.
If you want 16x16 icons, you can search in my gallery by using the media menu and adding ultramini to the name of the software/etc you are searching.
There are currently 5 sizes: big (very few ones yet, greater size than 50x50), normal (50x50), mid (35x35, not all has this size), mini (21x21) and ultramini (16x16). There are also animated icons. Animated icons are done only on request.You can also add a minus before the term you want to be excluded from the search "XXXX by:linux-r
Final: extra tipsA. Tips I: . Those are tips for doing searches. They are valid for all users, but the examples are focused into finding my icons. You can ignore the part about llamas.
C. Real tips start here.
1. You can press control+e in any text field and that will let you access to the HTML mode. You can use HTML tags. You can see more here: and and
2. You can search by "title:example". The results will show only deviations with "example" in the title:
This is better explained in Operators explained I & Operators explained II

About copying codes
About vanishing icons, -1 and HTML modeThe most interesting tip when this happens, would be to be able to enter into the HTML mode for making a backup of a lenghty description.
When in HTML mode (that you enter with Control+E) you can save a description into a TXT notepad and have a copy if something happens to the description.
There is also another bug that I hope that don't appears to you. It appears with certain trigger words like "technical support". If you write that in any description the description turns into "-1" and you can lost everything in the description.
That is why is good idea to save the code of a description.
There are certain things to know about this. You can add as much icon as you want when in rich mode that most probably they won't vanish. Is when you reload the description (like editing again or coming from HTML mode) when the editor have problems to load all icons again and just remove them.
So, when you finish a description, you press Control+E and you can copy all the description to s
About the anti-spam filters of deviantartAnti-spam filters in deviantart I think that are good, they have a trigger (X comments in X minutes), and also based in the content of the message, and a precaution time: if you do again, you will have a longer penalization over time (like 15 minutes without being able to comment).
Well, I think this, and the overall response of community keep the site off spam in general.
But what happens when deviantart blocks links that are perflecty sane? I have come across a couple of art sites that are flagged here and I don't think they were because of spam.
So, I found a way of avoid these specific protections. But I am worried about spammers getting know of this and they of course may want to apply it on their sites, and deviantart will now and will deactive also this option... so, if any of you want to posts comments with its link to an art site with your profile but the site is flagged for no reason, you can send me a comment in this journal and I will send you a note about you how to
About linksSo, I percieved I am saying this tips a lot to different people, so, as is normal, I am stopying telling individually this and instead, redirecting people to this journal that explain basically the same.
So when you want to link an external page in deviantart you have plenty of options:
Copy (Control+C) (from the url bar , we'll see later why) and paste (Control+V) directly in the text field. Pasting from the url bar guarantees that you have also copied the http:// at the beginning. The url pasted should have a underline.With some browsers the underline don't appear (for example new versions of Chrome in Windows). But if there is an http:// at the beginning it will show as a link. Example: https://www.google.esThis has the consecuence that if you want to edit, you can't easily change the "title of the url". See down.
Using "Add media" → "Link". (this will let you to edit the link and g
About composed iconsHello!
So, I'll stop to personally telling people how to properly use composed icons so I think I should do a substitute in some way. I'll just comment with a link to this journal and send a llama too.
Here are some examples and the general procceding.
When you use composed icons, you might want to remove the blank spaces that the add media leave after each icon.
So, when you have this: (1) You can improve it by removing the central space, like this (2)

FAQ #1: Can I use an icon in my mobile phone?Answered Question #1
Can I use an icon in my mobile phone?
a) Yes, but it is a bit tedious You need to remember this code:
<da:emoticon id="XXXXXX" profile="deviation">* and replace the XXXXX with the numbers of the icon
b) anyway you can also paste the URL and it will transform in the icon. But this only works in comments (not profile comments for example, nor descriptions) and has a limit. Pasting URL is like pasting the :thumbcode: There is a limit of 5 images. While using the other method, there is not.
(they will start to fail from here, although when editing I see them perfectly)
I do requests of code/composition of descriptionsI can do requests of templates of descriptions. With a template a description looks better and is easier to manage.
I can also improve the look of a description and add format and also, teach how I did so you can modify for yourself.
I do this without any charge, for free.
All requests will be shared through pastebin so with a URL shortener you can have a template in a webpage very accesible.
For example if you have a facebook, youtube, twitter, tumblr, picarto.tv, patreon, instagram, vk, join.me, artfight, etc etc I can make a description that looks fancy with all of those links.
Example 1 (all links are void):
Facebook Youtube Youtube Tumblr
About watching this galleryFirst of all, thanks for watching.
Second, you may have watched me because I commented or faved one of your works.
So, you need to know these things:
1) This account is not very suitable to be watched. Sometimes I upload funny gifs and artistic reinterpretations of other people stocks but the main focus of the account are icons of software and companies so they will be the main number of publications.
2) I can publish over 1000 works in a week. Your global stack has a limit of 10.000 deviations (after that is reached, old ones start to dissapear automatically). So, think about this.
3) You may want to watch me about tricks and to know about this accoun to remember the search tips or to have a better access to the icons. You can do all of that without the need to watch all my deviations.
You can unwatch my deviations, but I will be still in your contact list, so you can find me easily etc:
Also, take a look to these journals:
