I think that the idea of having the nav vertical is cool but besides that your design is way to minimal.
For me there is nothing in the design which would make it worth for me buying it. And that is partly because any element including your buttons can be redone in photoshop within seconds.
if you open up the psd which you uploaded to ThemeForest and open it up you’ll see how minimal it is without the photos. Too plain.
For the PSD category.
Any buyer (this is not aimed at anyone in particular) who is deterred or feel hard done by for having to pay up to $50 for a complete Wordpress theme is crazy – do they not realize how much competitor sites costs let alone a bespoke theme!
Obviously would like the authors to be in an optimum position to make money that they deserve but still think it is very valuable to note the incredible work you get here for next to nothing.
Dreamweaver is not for opening .psd files
.psd file is the photoshop document file type, you will need photoshop for that.
I noticed this once a few months ago, I was working on get a sheriff badge and I found a template on a warez site I quickly checked the item on ThemeForest and to my surprise the theme was uploaded just a day ago and it only had 1 sales.
So I quickly notified the author and envato as well, thinking that it is possible to track down who put the item online since there has been only 1 sales.
I don’t know what happened afterwards though, the author wrote me that he will also write to support but there my part ended.
Wow I had no idea that all of those are design principles,
I think I am doing the uncertainty principle most of the time
I don’t know what will happen on the photoshop canvas until I start photoshop. And when I close it there is a website design. That pretty much sums up my process.
Of course this works only if you are creating Templates. For a client work you are restricted since there is a brief for the project.
I started using, playing with photoshop around 1997, it was Photoshop 4.0 But I made my first client project only in 2004 when I was 24 years old, it was a logo design. And ever since that time I use photoshop daily for work and still feel that I am a far away from a professional.
