I’m happy to say I have added a new print template to my portfolio today. I researched similar files on the marketplace before creating my file and found that every other product was only created in Photoshop.

If like me you use Indesign in your day to day workflow you’ll know that Photoshop has shortcomings when it comes to text formatting. Indesign is a great text editor and ideal for print files and page layouts, after all it is an industry standard. Therefore I find it baffling why authors chose only to supply PSD files.

I know that a PSD file is a must for many buyers because they lack Indesign knowledge. Based on this fact I have created an item that contains an Indesign and Photoshop file for end users. As my item seems to be the only file containing these two options in the DVD packaging category I thought this would be reflected in the item price. I understand that reviewers probably work to a pricing structure but I do feel files with more options should be slightly higher priced than the simple alternatives, what do you think?

sorbamedia,

From what I have seen… In some cases items are priced higher than others when they contain alternate formats. In other cases I’ve seen, items have been priced the same as others when they contain “additional” files or formats.

What I feel is the right thing to do for any item is: if an item is provided in multiple formats, the value should be increased if the same amount of effort and energy went into designing the second format. In many cases when items provide multiple formats, very little if any energy was given to creating the second item because its formatting took place with the click of a button.

I can save a .psd as a layered .pdf with the click of a button. It will retain all of its layered information.

However, I may not be able to save an .id file as a .psd file with the click of a button. In this case, creating a .psd file from scratch is necessary. This is where I would think your energy and efforts in creating the.psd file should up the price of your item.

I contacted support a few days ago, waiting for a response.

UnknownDepths you are right as there is no quick fix to produce a .PSD file from an .INDD file time and effort is spent converting the design. As Photoshop is not a page layout application the design process is not always as intuitive as it is when designing in Indesign.
