Well, it seems there has been some kind of mix-up, bad communication and confusion behind the curtains?

The items have been “accepted” once again.

Hurra!

Grats! This is really good news!

Hi my friend, yes in some sense this is very good for me :)

But there are some confusions regards the upload of backgrounds, whether they should be on photodune or graphic river for all authors here.

Glad to hear it got fixed! You make a good point about contacting authors before disabling items. That’s something that we should really be doing. Let me talk to some people :)

Yes, it’s mighty fine all now.

And yes, I think it would be appropriate to warn your members before disabling the files. Remember how much work that has gone into making these files.

But I still need to know what I shall go by.

The 11 pack bundles are now back to port ….

But no. 12 has been rejected, the same reason? or lost in the crowd?

No. 13 hangs in the queue now?

Will my urban backgrounds continue to be accepted on graphicriver?

Sincerely, :)

I am glad to hear everything is fine (sort of) but i can’t seem to stop wondering if this post had anything to do with your files being accepted again. PS: Keep up the good work!

I’m very very happy that your problem was resolved even partly :-)

But cos I had similar rejections I think it’s time somebody to clarify again the rules about manipulated photos using in graphicriver items including

> urban backgrounds

> textures – > fabrics, walls, bricks, close-up nature, grounds, food etc

> patterns based on photos

If there are new rules we must know them before spending lots of working hours.

Dear TanyDi

I agree and I’m sure that envato listening now!

I believe that as soon as a photo is very manipulated, it has no place in photodune but here!

I understand, however envatos considerations, my urban backgrounds are perhaps right on the border if we follow the requirements described here below:

As a general rule, files on GraphicRiver are:
  • Layered files
  • Able to be sold in packs
  • Highly editable
  • Used as elements of a wider design
While files on PhotoDune are:
  • Flattened .jpg files
  • Sold only as single images
  • Commercially useful in their current form
  • Used as stand-alone images, requiring minimal or no editing


They fit well on some of graphicrivers “requirements”: Able to be sold in packs, Used as elements of a wider design.

But also fits very well at all photodunes “requirements” with the big difference that the guaranteed sell much better on graphic river than photodune.

I understand that envato is forced to clean up, but you can not just delete people’s files without warning. They could give me a chance to re-edit / develop my backgrounds so they could meet more of the necessary requirements, if that’s what they wanted. Well, it was also an error in this case.

I agree that there is a need to highlight some guidelines for exactly the kind of files you mention here.

Best / /
