This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get a premium membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get a premium membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
This is just a journal I'll be linking to/from in the next (turns out to be about 66) uploads I'll be making of screenshots of many .raw file previews from the past few years. See previous journal for more detail, but I have no processing software at the moment. I am sort of attention deficit so getting some free software and learning it takes a backseat to this little project.
'Constructive criticism' is always welcome and noted. Please keep in mind that these are previews of image data that haven't been touched by any optimization software, either in camera or on a computer. So they are going to be lacking in contrast, color, color balance and brightness.
As a rule of thumb (if anyone has concerns about their own image appearances) your digital camera LCD displays all images you take with its own version of what 'it thinks' the image should look like based on its processing algorithms. Almost always, they won't look the same once on your PC unless you have a good color management structure in place.
Many of my horizons will probably suck. Also, get a load of the dead pixels in some of the night photos. It will be good to mention many of the daytime photos are handhelds...Can you tell which are which? Also, they're all going to be pretty small. I'm still using Adobe Bridge to preview my .raw files, and that's the biggest they would go for screenshot purposes. I'll be putting thumbnails of all of these uploads on this journal when they're all up. Will be interested to know what you think!
"Existence, being infinitely resolved, utterly transcends narrow resolution models like quantum mechanics ... which means that existence is so infinitely ineffable, even physics does not signify it."

Favorite Quote:
"So much has been discarded so that we may be a taller impression of resemblance, it has altogether disappeared. It is from such a collective position of error that we pass through layer after layer of alternating beauty and flame, love and war, sacred and profane. Whatever we each have done, we are not to praise or to blame....
...Ideas, in civilization as it now exists globally are dismally domesticated in the delusional fallacy of willful self-identity, which utterly undermines the evolution of a coherent ideological ecosystem (noosphere). Rational consciousness is in great danger of extinction if this does not very quickly change.
This writing will be clear to nearly everyone—perhaps before 2015. It is inevitable.
The integrity of civilization that globally exists now and in the next few years, no matter how token, superficial and shortsighted it in fact still is, has to be sustained throughout the transition to a more coherent civilization worldwide. We must understand that people are sincere in what they believe, no matter how fallacious and existentially incoherent it is and how destructive the external cost of what they do because of what they believe. It is absolutely essential that no-one be coerced. The new knowledge must be so obviously coherent, that nearly everyone spontaneously recognizes it as the truth over what they currently believe, or else it is not yet the truth."
