I sat down with a client and had them look at some of the AWESOME templates available to them here on Theme Forest.
I was a little concerned though that so many of the preview images are very cluttered with “advertisements” about the theme. My client (not super tech savvy) had a hard time seeing the quality/detail of the theme. Heck, some of the preview images don’t even show the theme. What’s up with that?!?
I understand that it’s important to promote the features of the theme, like multiple color options, etc, but sometimes this can detract from previewing the actual theme.
I just want to encourage authors to try and show more of the theme in the preview image and try to condense the space that is taken up with the “ads”.
Am I wrong, dumb or ignorant? Thoughts?

Wow, I haven’t seen any of those files before. Great job!
Oh, that’s what the callback function does. Thanks!
Does Collis have an Australian accent? I couldn’t tell. He sounded American to me. Weird.
Oh man! That Adobe service looks awesome. I want in too!!!
I’m using multiple IEs, but IE6 doesn’t work like it does on a machine that only has IE6 installed. For example, I can’t use text boxes on my version of IE6 .
Better than nothing though.
I would recommend using CSS sprites. The arrows that appear above the page links have a bit of a delay before they show up when you hover over them. This wouldn’t happen using CSS sprites.
Just a small suggestion
Looks great contempoinc!
Content wise, it’s right on. I especially like the focus on sermon audio. Design wise, it doesn’t scream “church” to me. I would suggest adding cloud elements maybe, or play with some “light” ideas (since the theme is called “divine light”, etc.).
Again, looks really nice!
Looking forward to your submission!
