When this all dies down, maybe you guys could consider adding a status.envato.com type page (on a different server), where you could post alerts to this effect? That’d give us all the information we need and avoid Envato support being bombarded with questions when something like this happens.
That is a brilliant, tried and tested way to keep customers informed. I second the request for that to be implemented—it only takes minutes to set up and your customers would love you for it. Please follow up on that, Envato!
I second that, this does not tell us if we are allowed to use those images in Banners for example, which have a width of eg. 2000px but only a height of 800px.
Still very confused…
Muchas felicidades y saludos de Valencia!
Where did you get that info from by the way? I have checked the licensing but it doesn’t say anything about images that can’t be larger than 1000×1000.10.You can’t use an Item in a digital format at a resolution greater than 1200×800 pixels, unless the Item is incorporated into a digital product (like a website design) such that the Item can’t be extracted.http://photodune.net/licenses/photodune_regular
Hi, we got that from here http://notes.envato.com/authors/using-photodune-images-in-your-marketplace-files/
it’s as confusing to us as it is to you.
We just came across the guideline for using stock images from PhotoDune, including the following:
” You are not allowed to distribute or display any PhotoDune images in any digital format at a resolution greater than 1000×1000 pixels in on–line or electronic publications, including web pages, unless it is included in your site’s design.”
Isn’t that a little outdated? What about retina displays, or those giant full screen banners you see in many recent designs. Yes there is the argument of copycats etc. but on the other hand most Online-Demos of the Themes we publish here, are also completely accessible.
It just kept us from actually buying stock photos for our latest theme, which is a shame as there are many great photos available
So sorry to hear that. I guess it’s true what some say, never invest the money you depend on in stock. It’s like investing into a slot machine.
Hope everything will turn out ok for you!
While some themes just break the boundaries of Wordpress, showing off what an amazing CMS it has become, the last months a lot of submitted themes look almost identically.
It’s not only Wordpress. We just released a theme that in it’s category sold well during the last 2 weeks. As it’s our first theme, we were very happy with the feedback.
And now this theme has been released, by someone else:
There goes originality.
