Totally not related to topic. Is it safe to install Magic lantern on my Canon? Could anything possibly goes wrong?
You don’t really install anything. You just create a bootable memory card. When you use that card your camera is running ML, when you swap the cards the camera is back to normal. If something goes wrong. Simply remove the battery to reset the camera and that’s it.
Well every author has a right to offer customization services. And there is nothing to get upset if someone earns more for customization that you earn for a sale. keep in mind that you have made your file once and keep earning with every sale. guy who customized template earned once for the job and will never earn again for the same customization service he completed.
100$ for a customization is really not much. It might seem easy, but it actually involves a lot of things. I’ve rendered some of my logo projects for 100$ but I’m not willing to do it any more. In fact i have ceased offering those services at all because I’m not willing to do what it takes for cheap a no one is ready to pay me what I want to earn for it. So I’m actually suggesting my clients to look for customization services on forum.
I just accidently found this old thread and went to check if they have actually updated the logo and they have. I wish I had pointed them to http://graphicriver.net/category/logo-templates after all.
They probably wasted few thousands of my hard earned tax money to create that new logo.
This is the original logo that got this thread started 2 years ago
I would recommend finding place to stay through airbnb.com You can get authentic local experience and cheaper than hotel or you get more for the same price. I spent several days in a similar setting near Munchen this summer and it was amazing.
Can’t remember the bus number, but when I was last in Berlin I was recommended to take a Bus that is a regular city bus, but goes exactly where sightseeing tours would take you. They are nice doubledeckers like in London. So you see the same for just the fraction of cost and if you get in the buss at the first stop you might be lucky to get in the front seat on the second floor and get a better view that driver.
I was once asked if I would sell one of my templates and then delete it from my account (I assumed buyer would upload it here or somewhere else…not sure). It was a popular item making me at least $200 – $300 a month for more than a year and with sales on that item not really slowing down much. When asked how much I wanted I said I’ll let it go for $3000 (equal to 15 months income on average for the item), the buyer said I’m crazy… “Item is only $20, how can you sell it for $3000”. I explained the maths to him and he never replied.
Well, if that buyer were intending to simply get exclusive license and use it as a project for himself and make sure no one else will use it again, then 3000$ might seam a bit high, but if he wanted it to be an investment that he will keep selling then price of 15x monthly profit is really cheap.
Then again your loss of revenue source is no different in any of those two scenarios so I believe for you the 15x price is still really cheap. And i’m with Massfocus here. Whoever that byer was – he missed an excellent deal.
Imagine If someone purchase portfolio and then get rejected 20-30% of the items, probably older ones.
What I meant is not to sell files in the portfolio. But the whole thing. In my case it would mean change user name, disconnect the reviewer/admin privileges and sell my password to a new owner who fully operates the existing account with all the badges, commision ammount, followers, recognizability, file ratings, sales amount etc. That’s the only way for buyer to estimate the future income and purchased value. Selling just the rights for files isn’t worth much if they are dragged out of existing ecosystem where they have specific role on the marketplace, existing referral links, search rankings etc.
But since I’m a staff I have to state that I have no idea about the legal issues with this and it’s only theoretic discussion from an author standpoint.
Not sure about the legal issues, but I guess I would be willing to sell mine for no less than average monthly income x 60 months (5years) or so. That’s a lot of money, but I would be able to invest that money in places where it would generate similar monthly income and i’m not selling my creativity, so any time I could start a new account and grow my portfolio again.
