Hmm, I’ve seen stuff like that on 123RF but he may well have drawn them himself, they are pretty simple.

We deffo need the forum to be a true forum – ie we get emailed when a thread we’re following gets a reply.

Thanks to everybody for their input here, appreciate it.

I think this thread has run it’s course so I’ll round it up for others that might visit this thread in the future:

I feel there is a gap in the market for photos that are sensibly priced and come with the rights for designers to use in themes so there’s no waiting around for permission to arrive (if ever) and no having to use 15credits+ on sites like 123RF to get a decent photo to use.

Whilst I understand no theme should really be based around a photo I would argue that sites including TemplateMonster do just that and make a lot of $$ plus open the gates for their designers to be far more creative. I don’t want to anger anybody here, you are all very talented but I think the ‘ThemeForest’ default theme of ‘text+scrolling image’ has ran it’s course and there needs to be more creativity to keep us all going.

Thanks everybody for your comments, appreciate it. I understand you can use images from stock photo sites but to use such images on a template for sale means buying a ‘bigger’ license which costs £silly.

I’m thinking maybe Envato (or someone similar) could make a site that sells stock photos for all commercial uses. I don’t expect Envato to give us amazing photos for free (although I do feel that creativity here would explode and earn us more money), however, I do still feel they could offer us better photos. I have tried sxc.hu but most of the time the photo owner doesnt respond which (copyright law) maens I cant use the image. Why would I want to search for hours for the ‘right photo’ just to never receive permission.

This isn’t Envato’s fault; it’s the greedy stock photo sites but surely between us (see ‘kevinsturf’ post) we could get some decent photos on here for us authors to use??

With so many rules to the themes how could we ever sell something like my latest design on TF : http://www.robbydesigns.com/temp/int-des/

With all respect to all the amazingly talented designers on the Envato network, I feel creativity is crushed by Envato’s lack of decent images for us all to use. Would you agree?

I think this is pretty simple but I just cant think of the solution.

My client wants the Accordeon to stay open (not hide when you open another part of the accordeon…ie..you could have them ALL open if you like) ...preview here:

Thanks guys, appreciate your feedback. The blue gradient is just a filler for an image fade ie one image fades out, next fades in. I didn’t put an image there because I’m not interested in paying £15+ for one photo with commercial rights for a theme that would sell for all of about £7. The paragraphs at the bottom are purposely plain because it’s a minimalism theme (:

I’ve been playing with a minimalism theme for a few days but not sure how it would go down on TF, here’s a preview, what do you think please?

Thanks guys, still looking for a real coomunity though. Most of these Developer forums get about 1 reply for every 4,000 reads! Yikes.

I’m looking especially for a place I can learn to turn my designs into CSS
