If we build an HTML Template (or theme) that includes a PSD of it, can we also upload the PSD Template separately?

I’d prefer that you didn’t. The site will become too cluttered that way.

The site may become cluttered but on the other hand if PSD sales work out then it may make more sense for us to create a psd (which has a max resale value of $10) rather than the PSD & HTML for no more than $15…waiting to see how it works out but at the moment I’m asking myself why create the HTML also.

I also would like to rephrase xmdsys’s question. What if I create a PSD that generates high sales and have a market for an HTML version…is it then acceptable to sell two versions?

We’re allowed to post an HTML Template then also convert that for WordPress (or another CMS ) and post that as well though right?

I can certainly see that selling the same design in different formats could clutter the site, though yeah I’ve seen HTML templates reconfigured for WordPress.

I’m planning to wait and see how the PSD category does because on the flip side, if I sell my PSD a couple of times and an author uses that to sell a theme or template here, I could end up seeing that person rack up the sales while my PSD sits because it’s already been used here.

I do understand that the PSD category is designed to allow designers who don’t do any coding to participate in the marketplace. However, for example, currently hubby is “having fun” with IE6 so not coding would save some headaches for a similar profit.

So for now, I’ll just take a seat on this fence over here and watch what happens.

Hey guys,

This is definitely an issue that I’m considering. Let’s see how it goes this week. Though, I think it will be okay, if the psd does well, to also sell an html/wordpress version. As the others said, I’m only worried that the site will become cluttered.

I’ll clarify the rules later this week after a bit more review and a discussion with my bosses.

Umm… Maybe I’m misunderstanding what you said there but just to be clear, people can’t purchase a PSD template, code it into an HTML Template or Theme and then resell it here. ...right? If they can… that seems sketchy. That’s not allowed is it?

Well of course not. But if the same person that designed the psd wants to convert it to WordPress, that should be okay.

Thanks xmdsys!

This has been unclear in my head since learning about the PSD category, I’m happy to know I’m wrong!

Also, thanks Jeffrey for gathering all you can. Much to figure out with a new facet of the site, I’d imagine.

The site is already cluttered. All the guys are copying the best sellers templates.
