“Envato support shall contact you shortly with more information”
Probably your file was reviewed by another person who didn’t find your item useful and therefore rejected it
No, just add both files the same way as you’d add one. Nothing changes here
Personally I don’t like it very much. It has some imperfections and probably wouldn’t be accepted on Themeforest But it’ always nice to see some fresh look, after few years you get used to actual Envato design so much that it starts to bore you…
You need to include both EPS10 and EPS11 versions and mention the whole situation to reviever.
The oldest tutorials I’ve found regarding “Blend if” are performed on Adobe CS and CS2, take a look here: http://www.ronbigelow.com/articles/blend-if/blend-if.htm
Depending on type of magazine you can have some/all your photos for free. Remember that they rather won’t be the best quality, but you can find some nice shoots. The most important part is that they most probably will be nature/building photos, not people. For model stocks I advise you to buy some from Photodune, so you can use them in other previews.
There’s a possibility for you to use watermarked Photodune photos, but you have to link to all of them in both descripton and readme file.
