edit: can anyone send me the author name privately? I’m curious

It’s not a secret http://us1.campaign-archive1.com/?u=01a7104df9f31fd41e34ccbed&id=e0e1673408&e=8a90d2ed62

Hi

As a theme author I’m really careful about the copyrights issues, and especially about photos used in demo sites. We spend a lot of money on stocks to get nice content. In theme package, where we offer the demo XML file, all images are replaced with links to plain gray images from http://placehold.it/ I was under assumption it’s common and required practice.

However, as sometimes I also buy themes, recently I’ve checked one of the themes that had this ‘import demo’ feature, that makes exact copy of the demo sites on user servers, and downloads every image. I assume, as those images were in very good quality, that they are from stock sites. I’m pretty sure the license doesn’t allow that, and even if it does, it’s probably a lot more expensive, so having 30-40 images would be crazy expensive.

So, technically, the theme package does not contain any copyrighted images, the buyer downloads the images from the author server – who’s then breaking the law? Author or buyer?

Yes, updates are separate and I think no one really checks them in details. I have a theme waiting for review for a week now, and during that time I’ve made 4 updates for my other themes, and each one was accepted in ~2 hours

When we will see this in action?
We’ll begin work on this next Monday with the aim to be done by the end of the week.

AFAIK it is possible, but remember that the most visitors you’ll get in the first few days after accepting theme by Envato. If it won’t have good features then, it won’t attract buyers and gaining that momentum will be a lot harder later.

I still don’t understand why screenshots became priority over a live demo link.. screenshots are just complimentary to the live demo. The only case where screenshots should be priority is for PSD’s and graphics.. but why did it have to affect items like themes too, and in most cases theme authors aren’t even uploading screenshots. Envato should rather focus on creating specific functionality for the various types of items for better UX and to maximize conversions.
Exactly

if they could create audioplayer with soundwaves on audiojungle instead of screenshot, I’m sure making different links for PSD and for themes shouldn’t be that much of a problem that takes 2 weeks to solve..
