I just curious about 2 issues, and hope I can get the honest answers:
1) I’m a PSD designer. Previously quite lots of developers found me via forum to seeking for partnerships. If I agreed to partner with them, means we both are working under non-profit upfront. (PSD designing – waiting PSD approval – converting HTML – coding – waiting approval – sell – earn) Like most of developers worry about: getting rejected If getting rejected, then developers how? PSD designer how? break up from continue partnerships? If approved, after got ppl buy and earn profit, 50% to themeforest, 50% remaining divide by both party. Now, my main concern is here: a) how PSD designers can ensure that web developers won’t ‘disappear’ after designers submit PSD files to them? b) how to ensure that money can really 100% receive on both party?
2) Why most web developers still want to invest time, skills and man powers to waiting for approval via themeforest? Why don’t just open a ‘themeforest’ alike website and start to generate sales from own website?
Is it a wordpress theme created from a rasterized layers acceptable and will approve by reviewers? Please advice.
Do you know where can download royalty-free photos, and it’s free as well, to use for our PSD theme design purpose? (human, natural, scenic, buildings, pets etc photos)
As this is not really the place for self promotion – why do you not submit the designs for sale here? You will make a lot more long term.
If then you want to sell the designs you will have a lot more luck if they are approved and proven to be up to standard for TF
EDIT: FINAL DESTINY BEAT ME TO IT!
You’re right. In fact, how much average could be a PSD designer earn from a theme monthly?
