Why not price everything the same? But, I agree with the others that the pricing is too low. I know I never joined GR because of the low prices and low royalties. It didn't seem worth it.
Once you start trying to upload you find all kinds of other reasons not to bother.

Their upload procedure is a real eyeopener. They want separate thumbnails and preview images in specific sizes, as well as 30 keywords rather than 50, and the list goes on.   

Then they may just choose to reject it because you aren't offering a premium enough package for their site that charges peanuts and pays a cr*ppy percentage of that.

At least it looks like they may be listening now.

I never meant to discount complex stuff. I just don't agree that because an image is simple it should be cheap. My point was that illustration done well is difficult and should be priced accordingly. This pricing is absurd. Do they price their photos this way as well? Photo of a barn $2, photo of a barn with mountains $4, photo of a barn with mountains and a pond $6?

Good one! :)

you should post this on their forum as well.. I have posted my opinions on the corresponding thread on GR forum as well..

Well it has been over a month, I wonder if we are due a nice New Year's surprise or not?

Has anyone heard anything about this?

Reminds me of the attitude the the Vector upload process. Great at responding with a quick "we are looking into it" but then nothing actually gets down.

They have been talking about sorting out uploads for as long as I have heard about the site, I hope vector pricing doesn't get kicked into the long grass the same way!

Great point there! Even istockphoto can not rival their upload process..

Looking into it is good, but doing something about it will be great..

Hi guys :) We are still working on this.  Will let you know as soon as I have something solid to share.

Thanks! - Josh

Can I revive this old thread Josh...

It is now near the end of March and still no word on vector price rises at Envato. This REALLY needs to be addressed.

Please please please let us know how and when things will improve on this issue if you can.

Hi everyone!  I wanted to pop in real quick with and update on the issue of vector pricing at GraphicRiver.  Please take a look at the following post for more details.

Thanks for your time! - Josh


hey josh..

$1 increase for items that sell for $30 elsewhere is still funny.. that is not going to get us uploading.. also, I think my items are still priced the same.. I don't see any increase for most of my files.. or maybe I didn't notice it, since the difference is very small..

still the lowest of all the site I have images on..

abysmal upload process is another big hurdle.. losing my confidence in graphicriver..
