I am in the works of creating a template and I’m wondering what the buyer prefers and if anybody has a good suggestions then please let me know. Here is the scenario, I have a heading text field next to a small image over some other text and I want to make that heading editable via XML . Is it better to have that heading be an image so they can create their own image or is it better to just leave it a textfield and let them edit the text within it. Whats more useful for the common buyer.

I would assume that most buyers know how to make some graphics, thus they could make their own headings. But then I loose a lot of potential customers who don’t know how to do that.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Scott

I would definitely go for text, not for image. Ive seen many not getting how to work with images (think scale, quality, format, etc), but almost all of them know how to edit text. Cause thats the most basic thing. Anyone who can operate a computer, can edit text. Images, not that many

You could make it either or. The times I’ve done text, everyone asks for images and vice versa.

Do you have an example of what your talking about? So I can get my creative juices going.

depending on an option that should be placed in the external configuration file, the app creates a text field or load an external image. You can also load and image AND place a text field on top of it. (use image as background for text)

an option of both would always be the best.

for those people who do not understand, it would be much easier to have just editable text
