+100 I fully agree. I’m haven’t made anything for graphicriver in some time, due to this fact. I’ve seen it in all areas from vectors to UI. Kinda sad when this is where you are supposed to go for quality. Hope it gets sorted out.

@MD9 You could do it all in one PSD . Since it’s really the same DPI . The 72PPI @2X is an element at twice the dimensions. A 200×200 72PPI element becomes 400×400 72PPI @2X

For the sake of organization I did separate files.

Hope that helps

Just a quick question about the soft rejections.

Q. How long will an item remain hidden for me to make adjustments?

I only ask cause I don’t have the time at the moment to make corrections, so I wanted to see how long an item will remain hidden for me to make the required adjustments for an approval. Am I better off deleting and re-submitting?

Thanks! Chris

Can’t say I would feel comfortable telling others how I produced the design. This would in effect stop people from buying an already (cheap) item and dissecting it. Which I have done when I wanted to know “how”. If everyone knows how, then the need to buy an item or design would fade. In turn devaluing the entire design community in respects to envato. Just my opinion.

+1 @ Jadove

With eye on the latest video editing software (fcpx) it seems apple is moving away from the pro market and I think they are developing the imac more actively and therefore problems are solved sooner.
... Unfortunately you are right.

For SSD I recommend The OCZ Revo3 PCIe cards. They are pricey like all SSD stuff right now, but you can get 1500 MB/s read/write which is insanely fast. and they pop into a spare PCIe slot. Not to mention you can have them handle other tasks as well.. Not sure if they work with mac or not, but it’s worth checking them out. Not sure if iMac supports it or not…

Run your applications and OS of SSD and use regular drives for storage. You’ll find both hybrid disk/SSD’s or just SSD drives or a SSD card. They are still new and a bit unstable. Read up on any SSD you plan on purchasing, cause when they go, you get no warning… they just go. Not like an old HD making noises when it’s about to poop.

The cheaper route is to run 10k RPM SATA III Drives. you can get up to about 400-500MB/s read/write if ran in a raid setting.

Do the new macs support SATA III 6GB /s or 3GB/s?

PC vs MAC … LOLz

The only 2 things going for MAC are Aesthetics and the (unix) OS That everyone loves. (including me) I will agree that Mac OS is far more superior than any Windows OS. To say one machine is better than the other is just plain silly. If Adobe ported their software to linux/unix I feel the shift would be back to PC.

Hardware wise they are the same. The good ol days of specific CPU differences are gone. It’s all Intel now. So if your comparing price… PC wins. I can build a much more powerful Windows machine for a fraction of what I can get a loaded MAC for. From a personal business standpoint. PC wins. If something goes down, I can replace it within the hour. For a MAC it’s a bit tougher, and may take a bit longer, considering I have to take it in and have it looked at to not void my warranty.

I’ve worked on both platforms, using Adobe products and have come to this conclusion: Essentially they are the same… Some stuff works better on MAC OS # and some other stuff works better on Windows. I can say that if you don’t want to deal with researching, building, and configuring a workstation, then buy a MAC . If you buy a HP or any pre-built machine then your going to end up bitching. Hardware compatibility is essential to having a solid running PC.

All in all, it’s personal preference, and what ever you feel works for you, But based on cost PC wins hands down.

I heard rumors that apple will be discontinuing the G5 towers next yr. (iMacs only?!) I think it will be a divided road in the future. Apple is going to dominate the mobile/laptop market and PC will win the workstation/power user market.

I took my site down in protest of these bills. It’s the least I and others can do to keep the internet free, considering we all use it to gain exposure and share are wares.

Envato doesn’t want to get into the politics of it. I am surprised this thread hasn’t been locked yet.

I’ve been trying to stay current on the whole SOPA ordeal. I have read that reddit & wikipedia are planning a blackout in protest of SOPA on the 18th. I feel as creatives who have our works posted on various sites (and sometimes not always by us) are in direct violation of the this proposed act. I think as a community we should join in the protest, and shut down our personal sites for the 24 hour blackout period… With landing pages that protest SOPA .

I know this may be a controversial subject and that many can’t afford to have a site down for 24 hours, but I feel as a mass of creatives and savvy web professionals, we should join the fight.

SOPA will threaten many of the things we do to gain exposure. It’s about more than just piracy.
