Seems the original issue was fixed but the other one I mentioned in my post wasn’t. Since I think they may be related and I’ve seen other authors mentioning this, here goes a screenshot from my profile page:

Hello, thanks for reporting the issue. As I have been unable to replicate could you provide me with the URL you are seeing this on and the web browser you are using.

This is happening to me too… I was almost sure a while ago this was also happening on IE and Chrome, but now it only happens on Firefox. Just go to any Popular Items page on Firefox and that will happen. Also seems to affect Profile pages: I have two 306px wide images side by side, and the second one will move down… this didn’t happen before the background color update. It also only happens on Firefox. EDIT: this last behavior of the image moving down actually happens on Firefox and IE, Chrome is fine…

Damn, mine didn’t even make the highlights list… Guess no one at envato likes espressos to start a rainy day ;)

I kid, congrats to the winners, it was fun creating a cinematograph!

Eh, this just reminded me of a thread from… apparently, a year ago… time flies: http://videohive.net/forums/thread/can-upload-the-preview-video-in-fullhd-1920x1080/110216?page=2&message_id=900231#900231

I don’t remember seeing other stock footage marketplaces with bigger preview videos than videohive… but they do seem to have a higher bit-rate encoding which gives a better looking image. One of these other marketplaces has a “View Full Frame Still” which is a good way to judge image quality, on stock footage at least.

The difference with those sites are that they were all planned and designed from top to bottom to account for content, spacing and the white background.

Yes, completely agree… I was just mentioning how strange it was that everyone (even if half joking) was suddenly blinded by the white background, even though many other high-traffic sites also have it.

For what it’s worth, to me the envatomarket doesn’t look coherent, these visual patches that keep appearing seem devoid of any final goal and feel like changing something just for the hell of it.

I’m gonna play devil’s advocate, but sites like google, reddit, wikipedia, apple… they have (by default) a white background… no one’s gone crazy over it yet. And like someone mentioned, most themeforest items have a white background. This is a strange backlash… yes, its bright as the sun, because we were used to the grey… which to me didn’t need to be “fixed” but I guess those polls said otherwise.

Now, what really bothers me are these text changes…

Flag badges with white color get a bit messed with this background color… the Poland badge is now a red bowl.

That’s crazy bright… and these fonts make everything seem dispersed.

Also, the Popular Item pages have some bug… and I had on my profile page description two 306px wide images side by side, now they moved down to a single column… is this permanent or also a bug?

@julianstevenson

I’ve filled the form a while ago and I’m not sure if I mentioned this, so here goes:

When I upload a new thumbnail image to an existing item, even if it has the same exact filename, it will exist with a different URL than the previous thumbnail. What this means is: many authors like myself who cross reference items in the descriptions of other items (using the envato hosted thumbnails) will have those descriptions showing the old versions of the thumbnail instead of the new ones; same for any audiojungle items that use a thumbnail of a videohive item on the description.

Wouldn’t it make more sense to have a unique URL for an item’s thumbnail so that any cross references are always up to date whenever a new image is uploaded? Or at least, if the new image has the same exact filename, simply replace the old one, keeping the original url? I really can’t see any advantage in keeping outdated thumbnails in the servers.

Thanks
