Deviantart did it. The finally forced even old users to the idiotic new search style. There is nothing that I like about it. I know,I know, it's new - and there is that 'new period' but I've tried to figure it out .. and I genuinely HATE the new search. I don't know why they took away the advanced search option , but it really makes finding stock a lot harder than it needs to be.
Has any one figured out any tips that I am just completely missing?

I get that you can type 'stock' after what you are looking for such as "black horse stock" - but it literally cuts the image selection in half (if not more) the majority of the time,  The paid 'points' images are always placed first, so you have to sift through them, and there is now, no designation as to if they are points or not until you click the imge. (Yes I know, it only takes a second to click the images to see. But I am petty and lazy and just.want.my.bloody.advanced.search.back)

There is a reasource "Folder/Topic" But you can't actually search within the resource section so it is utterly useless. I am not going to page sift through thousands of pages to find the one thing that I actually want.

I don't know anyone who was asking for this change. It makes everything 10xs harder. That's kind of the reverse of what an 'update' is suppose to do, isn't it?

God, yeah, it's so annoying. They took away the actual sections and turned them into "Topics" - I tried using an old /resources/textures URL to circumvent their new search and it was like "NOPE! TOPICS!" Their tagging and keyword system leaves a lot to be desired, as well, making it so hard to find what you're looking for now. It really feels like they're trying to get away from hosting resources and stock and move towards being a conglomerate of an online gallery that people can ~kind of~ search through for a certain subject of art, but mostly for people to just click or arrow key through. More ad revenue for them that way, I guess?

ugh I hate eclipse!  I am not a fan of the overall design and there is so much wasted space on an image page it looks terrible!  They made the download button super tiny and I always have to search for it now.  It's definitely not my go-to stock source anymore  👎
