If you love it and everything works perfectly, yay!, let us know that too! Here's a simple Feedback Form.One of the changes is a new image editing tool that will make submitting photos and art more fun – and your work will look much better on the site. You can crop, fine-tune, rotate, resize, filter, and more. And there is also a way to upload individual vertical photos and illustrations to your blog.
