Dribbble redesigns its shot view?(dribbble.com)

    Really liking the ability for larger shots, but they should've accounted for all shots posted before the launch. For those older than that date/time, they could get scaled down at half size, like they've been up until this point. That way they don't get pixelated! Or, just scale everything at half size period.

    Another downfall is the bigger shots are going to change what gets posted on Dribbble. Bigger shots = more detail = less WIP shots.

      Let's be honest, do we still use Dribbble for WIP shots?

        Many people do, but they don't often end up on the Popular page. A lot of the WIP aren't super rough, but are the beginning stages of a project and some details aren't as thought through. I have in the past (granted I don't post very often), but this definitely makes me more hesitant to do so.

          dribbble is for showoff, self-marketing and finding inspiration. that's it. a platform where designers can share their WIP was a nice dream 8 years ago, but it's not dribbble.

            That's your opinion. That doesn't make it the rule. Dribbble "shots" are intended to be smaller snapshots of a project. That plays much better with WIP type shots then polished, finished pieces. While a lot of the work on Dribbble doesn't feel like "WIP" work, the majority of it is—that's just because it's full of talented designers. You'll see several iterations of the same thing (ie WIP). Plus, I'm fairly certain that was the intention of Dribbble, regardless of what you think.

              That may have been the intention of dribbble but there is no way in hell that that is what it's known for now. Dribbble is to Behance as insta is to facebook. Same thing without all the bloat.

                This wasn't a question of what it is known for, for the record. I never refuted that!

                  Yeah but nah. You're saying the majority of the work on Dribbble is WIP when it just isn't.
