How do I edit or delete my deviation or scrap submissions?

Editing Submissions:

To edit a deviation or scrap submission simply view the deviation you wish to edit and then click on the link entitled 'Edit Deviation', to the right of the image. From here you can choose to edit various components of the image file, including the title, the keywords, the description, the mature content rating, the critique preference, the category and the picture file itself.

Note that each edit is confined to exactly what you're editing - for example, if you alter the pictures description, only the description is changed, and the image itself is left untouched. The only exception is when you're uploading a new picture - in this case, the preview is being regenerated as well to match your work.
