You might want to use sprites for the images, that blinking on hover is just too annoying for me. :)

i know but one of the sad things is that the use of sprites isn’t always loved by the buyers ;)

Basic images are easier to use, you can change the hover state button faster without using photoshop.

I only use sprites for high traffic sites to optimize the loading and decrease the amount of HTTP requests.

But i am now busy to switch with this admin to sprites…...why not ;)

Yeah, but on ThemeForest you have experienced developers working, and theme buyers are developers with quite low experience, and there is a big big big chance they don’t even know what sprites are and even less how to work with them.

It’s like comparing racing car with a production car, racing car will only be driven by a professional, a regular driver wouldn’t know how to drive it properly or change some part so he drives a production car.

i wanted to say that without making it sound like our buyers are stupid. It’s so true though, they just want to be able to pick up the css file and see what images goes with what element – simples.
