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

Chris

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 :)

Before I spent way too much time with photoshop I used to spend way too much time with racing simulations, notably LFS . All the different type cars I raced I created custom skins for. The below is my “mystery man” skin which I slipped on sometimes, changed my online name/account, then kicked all my teammates’ butts … lol … lots of laughs until they finally found out what was behind it all :)

That would be against the objective of Envato/GR. There are no “less good items” here. That is what sets Envato/GR apart. Only the very best, premium, outstanding quality files will be accepted here.

So two different price classes for two different quality classes are not really an option. Only the best quality will do here.

I agree with this. If you want to sell “ok files” you just have to do it on another marketplace. Nothing stops you from doing that. But they definitely should not be available here at a lesser price. That would just dilute the marketplace with a lot of lesser items and make it harder for the customer to find the great ones.

The Flyers Category and the buttons/UI category are getting increasingly difficult to have items accepted in if they are not near perfect quality and we’ve seen many nice files rejected there.

This could definitely do with some work:

1) the shapes look a bit like ghosts swirling in the circle, I’m sure this is not the message you intended to transmit

2) get rid of the monochrome versions they are boring and bland. Concentrate on the colour one

3) I’m not 100% convinced of the choice of font, play around with different ideas

4) give the shapes a little depth, not just flat colour

5) find a nice colour palette, at the moment the for colours don’t look very interesting

6) at the moment the images similar to too big and the text a little too small. Make sure they work together harmoniously

Hope this helps for a start

Cheers

Chris

||+519793|mKrukowski said-|| U.S. government wants to have their own Golden Shield Project so it will be easier to control people

... And once they have it they will apply pressure to the rest to follow in line.

Here in Spain we already have antipiracy laws (which I am in favour of in principle) which have been subject to tremendous pressure from the US (which I find pretty scary).

it is always dangerous to serve a rich few so as to control a poor many. You’d think that lesson had been learned many times….

well, I guess it’s too late now. :) I’m sure a Moderator will take care of it if it gets spotted … If not, I’m sure there’s worse things in the world :=)

I started the same way: Couldn’t believe the quality and creativeness of the files here and just had to buy a few, even just to see how they did it! I learnt a lot from files I purchased here…

Now I’m authroing myself, it’s a great hobby :)

Thanks for the kind words.

Chris
