How to Post a Thumbnail -- Big and Small by MichelleRamey How to Post a Thumbnail -- Big and Small by MichelleRamey
7/21/14 edit: I made this 4 years ago, and dA has changed a lot since then! I don't go on very often, so I recommend you take a look at their FAQs to figure out their ever-changing thumb policies. (I would link a FAQ myself, but the link would probably be dead and/or replaced shortly...)

10/15/12 Edit: To post a big thumb, just add "big" after the first colon in the thumb code. Example: :bigthumb######:

Also, dA has since added another thumb code source below in the "details" section on the right side--it's the same exact code that you'll get from using the dropdown method shown in the sceenshot.

-------

A lot of people seem to be confused about how to send thumbs to enter my contests, so I've decided to make a super simple tutorial!
---------------

To post a thumb of a deviation, copy the code inside the box ( :thumb#########: ) circled in red in the screenshot.

Everyone can use them in:
:bulletblack: Deviation thumbshare forum
:bulletblack: News articles
:bulletblack: Notes

Only premium members can use them in:
:bulletblack: Journals
:bulletblack: Artist's descriptions (like this one)

They cannot be used (by anyone) in:
:bulletblack: Comments
:bulletblack: Critiques

Let me know if I forgot anything!

Here's a thumb!

So you can't do it in comment any more? I wasn't sure since I used one once in comments, and then I tried to now and it never works so I thought it was just me xD
