I have just seen an user who has a porfolio based on circa 150 items uploaded to GR and PD. Is that proceder alowed? IMO it is not good to duplicate items… but maybe I am wrong ;/

cheers

It probably depends, the user could be uploading stock photos to PD while the GR files include .psd or vector files? Even then I am not sure this is allowed, hopefully staff will answer?

yaeh, all are vectors on GR and jpg files on PD. The thing is, that on GR the regular price for one particular vector item is $2 and on PD a jpg file starts from $3 (x-small size). In my opinion there is no sense to do it, that`s why I am curious if it is allowed.

There’s certainly a bit of crossover on the sites, but Mike is correct. PhotoDune is pretty much strictly for stock photography with the occasional manipulated photo/graphic. PSD ’s and vectors are for GraphicRiver.

So why are prices better on photodune with just a jpeg and on graphicriver you get the source file and get less?

I’m not sure where the $3 for x-small is coming from? My photos have always been $1 for x-small :)

I’m not a staff member (like KingDog), but I’d like to give my input as well. I remember some time ago (year-and a half, or more…?) there was an article on Envato Notes about “Double dipping”. It basically means that if you create something for one marketplace, which can be altered/adjusted to fit another marketplace, you’re not only allowed to do that, but highly welcomed to do it.

To give you an example: you have a Wordpress theme you built from scratch, including plugins, and you sell it on ThemeForest. You can separate your plugins and sell them on CodeCanyon as well. Another example is what you asked: if you already have an item on GraphicRiver (PSD or vector), you can export your work as plain JPG image(s) and upload them on PhotoDune… Why would you do that? Well, somebody might need just an image to post it quickly in his blog post and he can get it for $1. Or he/she doesn’t have PhotoShop or Illustrator or Corel Draw, or even the skills to open/edit your source file from Graphic River.

KingDog, please correct me if I’m wrong :)

Oh yeah, that was my mistake. Of course x-small costs $1 ;/
