CPU upgrade is a welcome one, but SSD capacity is seriously lacking and RAM options not that great.
Perhaps that would be one possible solution, after all vector portfolios tend to be rather big (sometimes over 1000 of files), and have different RPI than rest of GR items.
So, if I want to use an image in flyer design and include photo, would “extended” photodune license suffice? Then I could sell entire flyer .psd with photo included? Or if I want to just use it in preview, would “standard” license be enough?
That said, when Photodune will open to general audience, otherwise it’s a moot point.
Yeah, if “presence quota” discussed above is not upheld, it’s only fair for non-exclusive authors to get no exposure on MP – after all, they are selling elsewhere, perhaps successfully, to appropriate audience. Exclusive authors are effectively in partnership with Envato – we provide content, Envato should provide exposure and sales. Current situation makes it very hard for exclusive authors, I myself withheld some uploads on GR for a while, but unfortunately there is no improvement in sight. An executive decision on bulk upload policy must be made, and soon. As was suggested earlier, overnight mass import of non-exclusive portfolio without flooding “new files” listings would be the best course of action, thus both allowing new author’s presence on the marketplace and not disturbing others.
Sony Vaio Z provides most power for least weight, it also has glorious matte FullHD 8bit screen that puts all Apple products to shame. At weight less than Air it has more power than top MBP so you might want to take a look at that.
As for migrating CS licenses – actually platform migration is free per Adobe policy, I believe. As for Macs – I’d go with MBP , but only after revision, it’s pointless to buy Apple products right now.
Hi fellow GR designers, I just wanted to share a quick tip. When working on a touch/app interface or something of that sort, I use maxivista to broadcast clone of working window to an iPad. This gives a representation of a real size of controls, knobs and other GUI elements. Because iPad ppi is higher than that of computer screen, sometimes you would draw those items smaller than they should be. But with maxivista you can preview your design in realtime on actual tablet screen and thus save time on later adjustments. Hope that helps.
Great Idea Sevo .
If anyone got a Dribble Invite, I really would like to get in for sharing some critic, feedback and ideas. If anyone thinks, i could fit in there, I would be glad to get the chance to join .
Forrst sounds also interessting, but it’s only for Web Designer and Developer or?Lung
To get on Dribbble you have to register there and just wait to be “enlisted”. So you have to post link to your profile here to get invite. It’s a bit complicated, yes.
