Wow. How disgusting.
Starving people wanting food would have more self-restraint than those people.
Always great to hear the stories behind the people here and sometimes we can forget to show a little gratitude.
I personally wouldn’t delete unless it was something that zero sales after a good while. As long as it is up there, it has a chance to sell, if you delete it then it benefits no one. Leaving it up there gives you more variety, more selection, another item to link to the marketplaces with.
The only benefit I see for deleting poor-selling items is some sort of ego boost to see all high-selling items in your portfolio.
If you think there’s room for improvement with it, update it – that has revitalized a few of my items.
I know your more interested in the why behind what is happening, but since no one has mentioned it, this is a great little action to help:http://nomorebanding.com/
Theres even a page behind how it works: http://trojankitten.posterous.com/suddenly-a-photoshop-tutorial-avoiding-gradie
The information on that page mentions:
The problem is Adobe did half the job with their 16 bit mode. Although your 16 bit image has all the gradient data to avoid any possible banding, that’s not what you see on your screen. You see an 8 bit version of the underlying 16 bit data, poorly truncated (I suppose for speed) and showing banding, which isn’t there internally.
You’ve probably seen this if you’ve already searched, but on the off chance you havent, this one is pretty similar:http://graphicriver.net/item/colorful-shopping-basket/2064120?sso?WT.ac=search_item&WT.seg_1=search_item&WT.z_author=Dvarg
Perhaps it might be worth contacting this author directly to see if they can make something similar if it is not quite what you need. I don’t think a lot of vector authors tend to visit the forums – they often aren’t exclusive.
I had an awesome week last week. Today I’ve had precisely zero sales.
UXbarn saidI thought I was the only one doing that! I constantly double-click the text to select the word or triple-click to select the whole row, and then click again to de-select it, while reading. Also, when thinking about what to type, I press SHIFT or CAPS -LOCK keys… Like I have some kind of feeling in my fingers that they can’t rest but have to DO something…
I always drag my mouse pointer to select the text on the screen then click to release then do it again plus doing right click to show the context menu, repeatedly, when I’m reading something.
Yup, I do this as well, the highlighting and right-clicking.
It’s almost as if I’m trying to distract myself from trying to read something.
Edit: I do this on the desktop sometimes as well. Dragging and creating highlight boxes around specific areas of my background.
Love this thread. I’m all for sharing the love!
Flyer designs can get pretty samey, so I like anything that stands out a bit. Minkki and Loswl do quite often for me, so heres some designs from them.
