There is only on thing bugging me about the redesign and that is the consistency of button styles. Your ‘username/sign out button’ and ‘search’ icon below it have a 3D edge to it. Then below that you have the ‘Post a Reply’ button and ‘search’ icon in a flat style.
Not sure why you would need two different styles on the same page. It doesn’t look finished to me. I prefer the flat style.
Other than that, it all works lovely. Great work.
i find the decision right, however maybe the timing is not right but is still good step from envato taking the $ of some categories high. If we are going to be required to produce better quality, the price schould also match with the time we spend to create better files.
Some customers might think twice about buying lots of style packs and sales might go down. But the quality is getting very high and the amount of hours spent putting these files together needs to be recognised and paid for accordingly. I think in time, people will realise they are paying for quality files at, lets face it, still a very low price and sales will carry on nicely.
Very strange indeed, it also weird how some people have managed to upload layer style will only one and have it priced very high, you just never know it seems
I have noticed some style packs only have 1 style in and it is disheartening when you may have put a lot of effort into a complete pack and have it priced lower.
BTW , when exactly did the price go up? I got sales on 27th and 29th Nov and it was still at the lower rate.
Good point. I didn’t even know there was a font category until you pointed it out.
I worked for three afternoons on amazing layer styles:
..and then I merge the file for a preview, SLAM , it saves ontop of the styles. No way to recover, nothing. All I have now is a useless preview.. and for some **ing reason, the style file doesn’t even work.It pissed me off.. now I don’t feel like making any of them anymore.
It has happened to all of us. Don’t worry too much. Take a break and come back to it again. I promise you that you will manage to redo the whole lot in a quarter of the time it took the first time round because the ideas and techniques are still in your head. And I’m sure you’ll save a couple of versions this time too.
This probably only really means something to the British members here but… has anyone else bought Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Killing In The Name Of’ to make it Christmas Number 1?
We could really have a proper classic track at number one for Christmas instead of the X-Factor karaoke championships winner. I’m excited.
I have to say I can’t see anything wrong with these backgrounds at all. There are a lot of glow/curve/dark backgrounds around but that shouldn’t stop you adding some new ones.
Perhaps have a look at everything you included in the upload. Make sure you have the correct size preview, thumbnail. Leave the psd layered. Include a text help file. The size is just about acceptable so I don’t see that as the problem.
To envato: The day you launch this site, will be also the day you are going to loose many of your GraphicRiver authors…atleast, i am leaving.
Hmmmm…. If that happens I might be with you Thomas.
