Hello, just a few suggestions:

1) Related images.

When you view images, you can view other related images, either by the same author, or different authors.

2) “Genius” images

These could show images based on your interests, such as what you search for. It could also suggest images based off of your bookmarks.

3) Image “bundles”

I believe that if an author uploads 5 images with people posing, they should be put into a bundle, like Graphic river. It’d make it much neater then having each image separate.

4) Bulk discounts?

Perhaps a good idea or not, if we order 10 images at one time, we could get a discount?

5) “Loyalty” scheme

This one is my favourite. The loyalty scheme is based on the way the author ratings work. If a user purchases ‘X’ amount, then they get ‘X’ discount.

For example:

100 Purchases: 5% discount on all items. (all marketplaces)

500 purchases: 10% discount on all items. (all marketplaces)

etc…

6) Most viewed/brought etc

I’d love to know which author has the best quality images (I.E the most views, sales, etc etc)

These are just a few suggestions,

Thanks, Thecodingdude.

Some great suggestions in there. I’ve added answers below.

If you go to any image and look under the description, you’ll see a list of other recent files from the author. It doesn’t do related images, which would be really cool, but it’s a start.
2) “Genius” images These could show images based on your interests, such as what you search for. It could also suggest images based off of your bookmarks.
Cool idea.

Interesting ideas, though that could really clutter up the marketplace and the upload queue. I think a loyalty scheme would make these less necessary.

5) “Loyalty” scheme

This one is my favourite. The loyalty scheme is based on the way the author ratings work. If a user purchases ‘X’ amount, then they get ‘X’ discount.

For example:

100 Purchases: 5% discount on all items. (all marketplaces)

500 purchases: 10% discount on all items. (all marketplaces)

etc…
I’d really love to do this eventually. Great suggestion.
6) Most viewed/brought etc I’d love to know which author has the best quality images (I.E the most views, sales, etc etc)
Under the community link you’ll find links to featured files, popular files, top authors, etc.

It would also be nice if there was a way to put thumbnails or links to a public collection that has similar photos. So authors can share related images. Maybe there is a way to do this that I’m not aware of.

UPDATE : sorry I didn’t read the previous posts thoroughly. :-)

To create a collection, just:
  1. go to a file
  2. go to the bottom of the right sidebar
  3. click “create new collection”
  4. you can make it public or private and add a main image and description
To add files to your new collection:
  1. go to a file
  2. go to the bottom of the right sidebar
  3. select your new collection from the dropdown
  4. click “bookmark this”
Collections are a great way to advertise your files on your item pages without having to update all your descriptions every time you upload something new.

How would I add a link to the collection on each item page?
