  • What is Sta.sh?
Sta.sh is a new system for submitting art to dA. You can find the link in your 'submit' menu.
  • Why use it?
Main advantages are that you can submit deviations faster, from more places (currently with apps for androidiPhotomaciOS, etc., as well as from email and FTP) and you can keep them private if you want. You can then share it only with those people you want - for example to ask their opinion before submitting it to your gallery.
  • How to submit?
Submitting basically happens in two parts.
  1. Upload the file
    • Image- and other files
Submit files from your computer by clicking Upload to Sta.sh (choose the file from your computer in the popup). Most browsers (at least Chrome, Firefox, Safari) support selecting multiple files at once here, that Sta.sh will then upload one by one into a new stack.
These browsers also support drag and drop for one or more files; open Sta.sh in one window, open your folder with the file(s) in another, and drag the file(s) from the folder to Sta.sh.
    • Literature
For literature, there's Sta.sh Writer ("Write to Sta.sh"). It's a WYSIWYT editor (What You See Is What You Type); this means you can choose if you want to use HTML codes or rich text (or both). In the writer, you can choose to write up your deviation and use the formatting buttons, or paste rich text from somewhere else - say, the Word file where you wrote it. You can also add html codes manually. All formatting in the original file should be transferred over.
    • Muro
There is no option to submit a muro drawing directly to Sta.sh yet. You can however draw in deviantART muro, choose "export image" (under "File"), save the file to your computer and submit it like any other file.
  1. Edit and Publish
Once the file is in your Sta.sh and uploaded, the next you do is edit it! Hover over the thumb in Sta.sh, then go over the title and click "edit". Now you can choose a title, category, licence, etc. In the right hand menu choose whether you want to publish the piece to your gallery and watchers, or leave it hidden as a Sta.sh (untick "my deviantART Gallery" etc.). You can also submit it to a group right there (also allowing you to submit exclusively to a group) or if it has the right specifications, as a print (also allowing you to submit a print without a [public] deviation attached).
  • Stacks
When you submit a bunch of files at once as described above, it automatically becomes a stack. You can also merge deviations into a stack by dragging and dropping a file on top of another, or selecting several files and use "File > Merge Selected". You can also click "Upload Files" on the stack page to add new pieces. To remove a Sta.sh deviation from a stack, go with the mouse over the thumb, and choose "Move to Sta.sh".
  • Sharing
Before publishing, you can share a sta.sh deviation by giving them the "Quick share" link to the top right of the deviation page. You can also share an entire stack the same way.
  • It doesn't work right! D:
Sta.sh, and especially sta.sh writer, are relatively new and in development still. So some hiccups can happen! To report it contact the Help Desk.

I originally wrote this tutorial in Open Office (also to test the copy-paste from there to stash writer:dummy:) and this tutorial is so concise that it fits on one A4 page there :P (though I did make some edits since)


If you want to give your opinion on the feature please do so on one of the Site Update Blogs at #hq so that your voice will be heard :D But feel free to comment on the tutorial here, or ask me questions if something isn't clear ^^;

The 'Simple Stash Tutorial' is a concise and comprehensive usage guide describing the new (beta) Stash Feature in dA. The procedure, as outlined, is written in clear, understandable terms. The amount of detail neither under- nor overwhelms the reader (of English). The author has demonstrated that he has a working knowledge of the process and an understanding of the audience this piece addresses.
Tha author has taken care to proof the document for spelling and syntax errors. (suggestion: substitute "once" for "when" in the opening sentence under 'Edit & Publish'). The style is comfortable and flows easily from beginning to end. Written at an intermediate comprehension level that will not challenge or insult the reader.
Anyone who is minimally familiar with uploading should be able to achieve success with a single reading.
What do you think?

You cannot move a deviation into sta.sh directly, no. Of course you can remove or store the deviation and reupload the same file into sta.sh.

For some file types, you can - you click "Submit to DeviantArt", then top right of the current thumb there's a pencil icon. Click that and one of the options will be "Change preview image" :)

No worries, you do not! Whether you can add a preview image only depends on the file type of the work you're submitting :)

Okay I think I know how to ad preview tho I am kinda disapointed as I thought I would be able to only let my viewers view the full size image and keep the smaller view behind the preview.

Mistress: Hi I am currently being attacked by a deviant art user, who is using her friends to take my account down by reporting me allot of times. And someone did make a journal about it to do a wager but the girl won't accept it rather attack me some more with her friends bashing on me threw the journal I have created about her and the comment section. I was never the one who did this whole attack she started the very first attack threw my comment section and made i don't know how many journal rants about me and even went as low to make a video rant about me as well. And I haven't even got the chance to defend myself up until now. I was willing to take the journal down to you know settle this like mature people but she won't do it. Rather keep on attacking me out of rage. I am trying to get help but its not easy when I am being harassed and threaten. I have reported her and allot of people who attacked me threw my comment section. I really want help and for her to stop bothering me I just want to have a nice DA life on here without people attacking me over and over. For something that I already calmed down for and ended and wish to end it once more. You can check the dates of the rude comments threw my profile comments and even the date when she posted the rant journal about me. I am not lying when she made it first. I know it was wrong of me to feed onto her but I don't want this continue. I am trying to tell her to take her rants about me down so with her friends but they haven't done anything yet but ignore the person who is helping me settle this down. If you could somehow do something about this? I mean if you can? I really want help :(

Did you block these people? You can also hide their comments on your page if you want.

take my account down by reporting me allot of times
What rules did you break? If you didn't break rules, reporting won't do anything to your account. If they're reporting a lot of things that don't break the rules, they'll lose their ability to report things for a while, and nothing will happen to you.

I can't do more for you sorry ^^

I finally figured out what's wrong. For some reason, it's not letting me upload any art at all. It's effecting several other deviants, too, and likely all of deviantART at that. This is a problem only the deviantART staff can solve.

You can submit several items at the same time, or drag and drop one item on top of another, or select several items in your sta.sh and look for the merge button :) in each case the items will then be in one stack (folder)!

Say it's text, just a customized link, like 'Commissions' and it links to just the page in the sta.sh
Reply
:iconnamenotrequired:
namenotrequired Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2015  Student Interface Designer
Ah! You write:
<a href="URL">TEXT</a>

Where you replace URL by the link and TEXT by the text you'd like to show such as "Commissions" here :)

It's explained here as well: FAQ #81: How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?

Does that work for you? :D
