I just realized that my PSD themes are not watermarked. Then I checked few other PSDs which are not watermarked as well. From what I remember PSD Previews were use to be watermarked as why would any one buy a PSD if they can just download most of the full size jpgs from themeforest.

I might be wrong, so please let me know if I am missing something. I know we can’t do our own watermark but envato use to generate watermarks automatically.

I see your fear, but when you want to do some serious, pixel perfect coding, you will need .psd files.

If were PSD previews watermarked, I’m almost 100% that your sales wouldn’t be any higher. Look the other way – someone who wants to buy your template is going to buy it and somebody who wants to rip it, is going to rip even though it’s watermarked.
