This is definitely a spet further now. Looks much cleaner.

My pleasure, good luck with it!

that’s a huge difference, the must be something wrong there.

If you can post image than I’d be happy to try and compress myself, see what I get.

I’m on PC and usually the value I get from the preview is pretty much correct.

Cheers

Hmmm, I’m two sales away from my first 100 … shall I make it a thread? lol :)

Honestly, I see both sides. We are proud we’ve achieved something great and we want to share it with the rest of the community, maybe even say thanks. Nothing wrong with that whatsoever.

On the other hand, we do get a lot of paws and milestones threads which in the end bring little to the quality of the forum.

I guess it’s a judgement call … By tomorrow or so you will see what judgement I made on my milestone … lol :)

Cheers

Hi Liam,

The buttons/UI category is one of the most difficult to that items accepted for. We’ve seen great looking items rejected. And if you look at some of the top Sellers in the category you will see the absolute perfection and balance of the designs. This is what you must achieve, otherwise you will get rejected, no matter how good you think your file is.

I think your file can do with quite a bit of work actually. Overall I think it lacks balance and harmony. It looks like several different styles thrown together as opposed to following one line of design style. Plus several of the elements and not very well defined, look a bit smudgy look a bit off. You gradients in general need a bit of work. There are some nice examples but there are also ones which are completely off, like the bottom hover state for example.

I’ve taken the liberty to simply add some comments of your image as it will save me a lot of typing. Obviously some of this is just personal opinion, but I think that most would agree that your item lacks one distinct line of design style and definition on various of the elements.

\\

Hope this helps

Chris

hi,

This is the GraphicRiver items forum, not the Theme Forest one.

Also without seeing any sort of preview images for your item were cannot really comment.

The reviewer has given you quite a few tips on how to improve I suggest you start following those to get going.

Cheers

The changes definitely for the better!

I’m not sure why this is not not be unacceptable logo shape, I don’t really see anything wrong with it.

Have you tried applying more than one colour to the icon shape itself? It may make it more interesting.

Cheers

Hmmm, I don’t know about CS3 , in CS5 these options are definitely available.

do you have the skew and free transformation controls available? You can always use these to fake the perspective or distortion effects.

You can also create one layer which is not a smart object, distorted, then simply use it as a mask and used are free transform controls of the smart object layer to bend it into the same shape…

Hope this helps

My last two items were held for a day and then approved immediately. I was thinking that it may have something to do with the new queueing system as it hadn’t happened to me before… always makes you nervous, regardless, but as I said, in my case is either immediate acceptance. So surely there’s nothing to worry about :)

Cheers

Chris
