Two reasons, one, don’t resubmit the preview images again with exactly the same name, (Envato software has a bug, you should always slightly change the name when resubmitting) otherwise Envato may get the original version, not the update?
Well, two, using paint, geesh, no wonder it looks like crap? A but like a master painter using a preshool watercolor kit?
I think that we are getting to tech, here, after all it is the preview image, not the product?
Not sure about the ping one, never used it?
Yes, Nico, sounds like this guy is in a pickle since he is close to a victory?
Yes, no need whatsoever to bring up the original, (which is probably already a jpeg) and save it again as such.
I tend to bring up the original, then right click on the layer, then click on “group into smart object”, (well, something like that) then press Control T, then scale down.
And if scaling down, by hand, be very careful not to distort. Probably best to use the grid numbers at the top of Photoshops screen, til you get the hand of it?
Then rasterise the layer, (right click on layer, “resterise”) and go from there.
Or Google smart objects in cs?
