January 20, 2018 — Trending image sort option has been added to image search and browsing
In an effort to better represent the variety of images found on OfficialPSDs, we have added a new "Trending" sort method when browsing and searching images which will show images based on recent download activity.
January 20, 2018 — Mature-flagged images will now show placeholder notices in search results
To better inform users and members with safe mode enabled how many images they are unable to see with safe mode enabled, mature-flagged images will now show a place holder notice informing users that more images are available once they login and disable Safe Mode in their settings.
January 7, 2018 — We have completely rewritten and replaced the Download System
Due to several strange issues with some browser versions, especially Microsoft Edge and Safari, we have completely rewritten and replaced our download system.
The new download process should be smoother and work much better.
January 5, 2018 — Downloads with Safari web browser should be working now
There was a strange scenario causing Safari downloads to fail near the end of the download process no matter the file size of the download. This issue should be resolved now for Safari browsers.
January 4, 2018 — Large image downloads should be working now!
There were a couple of issues with large downloads timing out before they completed the download process, but they should be working correctly now. I have also increased the transfer rate of logged-in members when downloading images.
December 27, 2017 — Welcome to the new OfficialPSDs site!
OfficialPSDs (OP) is under new ownership!! Yes, I know that announcement can be scary sometimes, but fortunately, this is not one of those times!
The next big announcement is that I have been developing a completely new site for OP! The old site and the software behind it were quite old and required a great deal of re-coding just to get it running on newer servers.
The new site was designed and developed from scratch specifically for OP that combines what everyone loved about the old site with a more modern site design that offers better functionality, more features, mobile device support, and a lot more. Once you login or sign-up, make sure you check out the Settings page as there are several ways you can customise the site the way you want it and more will be added soon!
Most importantly, the new OP site also puts a lot more focus on the artists behind the uploads, featuring their profiles on every image download page. Artists who upload will be able to promote their web site, social media accounts, etc. on image pages. I have also added several social features to the site such as following members and there are several more planned in the future.
I have also moved OP to newer and faster servers that should provide much faster performance and improved reliability over the old site. The new servers are located in a major data center with several connections to the major backbone networks of the internet, which should offer great response times throughout the internet.
One thing that I am most excited about is that OP finally has forums again! The old site's forums were heavily spammed to the point they had to be shut down and what was once a great community was lost as a result. With the new forums, I am working on a layered access system along with spam protection systems to help defend against spam attacks.
I hope in time we can build an OP community that brings artists, designers, and creative souls together!
We hope you are as excited as we are!
