Themeforest`s download speeds are appalling. When a Seller decides to include sample video in an html theme (I dont know why the examples are copywritten anyway) you can get 600MB file downloads. Huh? This belies belief because even CMS themes with all the code and Quickstart packages arent that huge. I can understand where multi design pages per item but these often include placerholder images so the file is 38mb for example. Remembering that these are typically text files with a few placeholders and styling grahics/ icons it is getting silly large files. Im certainly going elsewhere for pictures and the odd design I need now because i cant vwait 6 hours because of themeforests` throttled down servers. Have they heard of Amazon CDN?

A joke!

I can see the issue here. You buy the psd but most people wont have psd editing software, so they want to recreate it in word, otherwise its a useless format. You have to edit psd files just to type standard letters! These psd templates are ideal if taken to printer service and used in a typewriter, which is rare nowadays. Its a heck of alot of work getting these psd anything useful other than eye candy. Ive used psd pdf and ai files for years but for the average user its a big headache not having an easy integration to standard desktop software like Word which in business, accounts for the majority of created business letters. Most people dont have pdf creation software I guess.
