I’m not able to open the Envato Studio logo EPS files with Illustrator. I (ashamedly) still use CS5 and it says they were saved in a newer version. There are other ways around this, but I wanted to say something incase that wasn’t meant to be posted in a non-backward compatible format.

Yeah, just keep putting effort into spreading the reach of your products. My sales have been the highest ever and it’s going great.

Best to you.

All of a sudden how come sales dropping…..buyers plz come on..is it the responsive homepg reason ? Where’s the gap!!!

Not sure, but I don’t think it has anything to do with Envato. My sales have been the highest ever.. things are looking good.

Hopefully your sales pick up.

(Reposting to all the forums) Hello, i’m about to sell my first psd item on tf, however, they say in the “PSD Templates Submission requirements ” : Must be compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS3 or newer, I already know how the compatibiliy between versions work with after effects, and i wanted to know if it’s the same with photoshop. My ps version is cc 2014, how can i make it compatible with older versions ? thanks

I don’t think it’s just about saving back to a previous version, because if you’re using features that are not supported in older versions then the PSD won’t work properly. You should make sure that you’re only using features compatible with the version of Photoshop you need to accommodate for.

Best to you.

EDIT: Having re-read your post, they’re just saying it has to be with compatible with CS3 OR newer.. since you’re using version CC then it meets the criteria. You just need to specify in your item specs that it’s version CC (when you upload the item for submission).

To be completely honest, I think it’s just too generic and doesn’t have a distinct style to it. The best advice I could give you is to go look at other successful banner ads and identify what design practices they use compared to your own. Implement a stronger sense of design and resubmit. And to be clear, I’m not suggesting copying anyone else’s work, but rather identifying best practices and stylistic design choices that you don’t see in your work.

Best to you.

Purchased….Fearless

Ok, yeah.. like I said, you should always look to the author of the item for support first, but check here for his support for that item. If you can’t find your answer there, then follow his instructions to contact him.

Hello, I love using the actions but I can not figure out how to get them to just have the action itself in the photoshop image without the background. I go to the screen option but it makes the file transparent. Any help would be awsome. Thanks Jayson

Is this an action you’re trying to make, or an action you purchased on GraphicRiver? If it is an action you purchased then you can get support from the author. You can still get help from the community, but the author of the action would know their item better than anyone else.

Does anybody knew something about advertising in AdWords?
Do Envato provide it only for selected authors or for all? Or maybe it’s the authors who organize this advertising? I see quite often ad’s of items that I saw on Graphicriver (this is certainly the AdWords graphic ad). Do you know anything about this?
And one more – does being an “exlusive autor”, help in sales?

Being an exclusive author is a relative question. I think it depends on what kind of time you have to invest in your product and what type of products you create. In my personal opinion, I prefer to be an exclusive author to receive a higher percentage, and with my (current) limited time to devote to this per week it’s easier for me to manage one portfolio for all my items. You can always try out each way to try them out and test your success, and ultimately find what works best for you.

Others have said this, but to reiterate… in the long run it’s going to be better to have a less number items at a higher quality than many items of lesser quality. In my personal experience, I have a very small portfolio, but I have consistent sales each month. I am and will continue to add products to my portfolio, but I have a measure of good success with the limited number of items I have available. Having said that, there’s nothing wrong with having a lot of items in your portfolio.. just make sure to never upload anything less than your highest quality items. My advice would be to study items that are very successful, and learn how to improve your own items. Do not copy them, but use them as inspiration to create your own better product.

As for advertising, it is the author’s responsibility to market and advertise their products (or other author’s products if you’re building affiliate income). You can see more about promoting your items here.

Best to you.
