How important are theme/template screenshots for sales? I see a lot of authors – <strike> even </strike> especially top selling ones that don’t bother with screenshots at all…

I’m asking because there are some creative things some authors put in screenshot section like:
  • screens of theme options and variants not showed in demo (to prevent piracy I guess?)
  • screens of admin area showing theme options (not avaible in demo)
  • photographic proof that theme was really tested on the iPhone or other devices
  • one author (forgot the name) in particular fused together like 20 different screenshots to show all the cursors and mouse over effects on the page!
  • showing screenshots of tests/validators/other tools showing how good the theme is coded/made

Do buyers notice that kind of effort?

Do buyers look more than at the frontpage? That would be my question :)))

On topic: I do. And it’s a pity if there are none. Sometimes it’s easier to looks at screenshots than an actual demo. If a demo is down or just slow because of bad hosting choice f.i.

As a buyer I always look if there are screenshots of the admin area, which can’t be seen in the demo. And unfortunately, most often there are none :-/

It depends. Some buyers do, some don’t. But I can be sure that there are buyers who actually see the screenshots (like I do :D).

Screenshots also (at least) can give an idea about the template / theme, in case authors’ servers do not work.

+1. Sometimes this decides whether you get a sale or not :)
