If i sign up to the envato elements does that mean I can download any theme on here ? ie one that cost $70 I can download that free once i subscribe to an Individuals account ?
Elements allows you to download any item from www.elements.envato.com NOT any item form any of the marketplaces.
On top of this bear in mind that:
Elements items do not come with the same support or updates that purchases form the main marketplaces do
You must be subscribed when completing a project using an item from Elements i.e. you cannot stockpile for future use
