I’ve started selling here in 2011 and because of the fact, that sales were nice from the beginning I kept going and uploading more files on GR.

I’ve started with some flyers, but then found my passion in styles and text actions.

Imo, these days, it is harder to get sales from beginning, because there are tons of new files every day as the marketplace grows really fast and You will probably need to use social media and other graphic websites to show your files and start to build your followers base.

I also agree with Magicpixelss, that You will need a decent portfolio if You will be mostly doing illustrations. You may try to make items from different categories and find what suits You best ;)

Here are my starting earnings in 2011

When I click on any Category from top menu it goes to “something went wrong” page.

Using FF v.33

Other sites like TF, CC seems ok.

Please repair it asap.

EDIT: Seems ok now, just when i submit this post…

Thank You Jan

Thank You Alex, for your quick answer. That is what google translator said, but when i tried to search “needle” in google it shows only sewing and injection needles, so I thought that there is another word for these as in my langauge is.

So I will use “tree needles” to not confuse anyone :)

Hi Guys,

I’m preparing some new Christmas Actions and need one english word for these little parts on christmas tree. Google translator isn’t helping :/

So, how do You please call it?

Thank You for your help

I know it is a 1 year old post, but that shopping cart is really needed. Today I bought around 25 Photos from Photodune for a website and I spent like 20 mins only clicking and confirming buys.

Dear Envato developers, if this is in your pipeline, pls move it on top of your list (well just under add-ons category price increase). ;)

What I don’t understand is if what they are trying to say is that I must submit each individual set of shapes for sale so each set is previously approved before uploading a bundle?

You probably named your file with word “BUNDLE” and that word is reserved for making a bundle of allready approved items. Just rename it without using a word BUNDLE in your title. I would also split the file into more smaller files as Animation1000 suggest.

Hi Anastasia,

You can’t sell the exact same item elswhere, if You are selling it as an exclusive author here, but in your example You sell flowers as stand alone file on your site and You can use it as a part of your design for greeting card, etc. IMO You don’t need to change the style of the flowers as it is the part of whole design.

Didn’t found any easy way to do that. After few years of making layer styles and actions I’ve learned much about, what I can’t use in the project for compatibility.

The only way is to check what was new in cs4, cs5, cs6 and CC. These functions are missing in cs3, so don’t use them if they supose to be customizable.

For example if You want your file to be compatible with CS 1 – You can’t use smart objects as it was included from CS2 or if you are making an Actions, you can’t use layer styles on group of layers as it won’t work in CS4 (not sure about cs5). Also smart filters started in CS3.

There is also one more sollution, which should work without any problems. Just buy CS3 and make the projects in it. ;)

Confirmed. Same problem here, tried in FF and IE, both not working. In Chrome everything is ok for me.

I have some item, but price for it low. If I update item and add some new scene’s, price will change?

You can try it and leave a comment about it when updating your file, but You can’t be sure, they will increase it. Best of luck.
