Honestly, the whole thing looks like copy and paste of various elements to me, but not one flowing design. Somehow it doesn’t feel connected.

Sorry I can’t be more precise, it’s just a feeling I’m having when I see it.

$1 per watch – but I would like to see a sample before comitting :) I have an intern here who’s bored … otherwise I wouldn’t dive into this :D

Automatic actions were never get you the same quality results results manual adjustments will give you. So it’s really a question of how much time/money you are prepared to invest or how much quality you are prepared to sacrifice.

There are some actions out there Which can do this for you, I have to admit that I have not tried them personally though. I usually either do it myself or hire someone to do it for me (see Mudi’s proposal above) when I need top quality cutouts.

It may be worth your while taking a look at something like this:

Ah! That make sense, sorry, that’s my bad, I looked at the samples but didn’t really think about the implications of the smart object.

It would probably be a good idea to include that in the description as any non-savvy photo shop users may not be aware of that.

Having sat that, from a pure style point of view, I still think it should look as great as the samples I gave above, and honestly for the moment I don’t think it does. But again, maybe the preview doesn’t do your file justice?

Cheers

If you never created a milestone thread, then this is a milestone! Lol :)

Well done on the achievements!

You’ve got some really nice files there, I’m sure they’ll keep selling for a while. Things like the stamp styles will always have an interest. Other things like the retro themed gui will probably be out of fashion at some point.

I would estimate it’s hit and miss. The more generic files were probably have a longer lifespan. However that’s just me thinking out loud, I do not have any empiric evidence to support my theory :)

Well done on the sales! Always nice to see when quality pays off…

Cheers

You are a brave man investing so much time on an item that’s top spot on the “not needed” list! So the return is well-deserved. Definitely an awesome set of icons!

I would think that the problem with the file is that it simply does not have the quality of similar files available.

Take a look at these for example:

http://graphicriver.net/item/dimensions-3d-generator-action/234665 http://graphicriver.net/item/new-3d-text-styles/151424

So as a potential customer I have no incentive of buying your file. You really need to offer something of similar quality to the above – maybe even adding a unique touch.

I like these much better. The very white icons are probably a little too bright, but for my taste this is now heading in the right direction.

I would still work the typography. Now it’s all a bit samey samey. I think that’s “wisdom script”? I wouldn’t use it for all. I think at the bottom it’s nicer than the social URLs. Maybe try some straighter type there.

I’d like to see a completely different colour on the icons. Just for comparison sake as logic tells me there’s nothing wrong with the blue there, but looking at it somehow bugs me :)

Cheers

Chris
