How to do thumbnail links in deviantart
Thumbnails make it easy to share any kind of artwork on DeviantART. (BananaStock/BananaStock/Getty Images)

DeviantART is an online art community in which members display their artwork and writing in a gallery free of charge. However, it is possible to purchase a subscription to DeviantART, and subscribers have many more options and features than non-subscribers. One of these features is the ability to easily make thumbnails of any work on DeviantART to feature in forums, artist comments or journals. The code for a thumbnail of an image is on the same page as the full-sized image.
