Earlier this year we let GraphicRiver authors know about a more general trial we planned to run on a subset of Envato Market item pages to analyze the performance benefits and cost effectiveness of automatically optimizing pages.
As a reminder, our goal with this is to responsibly serve images to our customers, not change how our authors build and market their item descriptions.
One of the key aspects of this is limiting image height in item previews (via upload form) and item descriptions (added via HTML field) to a max of 8000px. We’re about to move to the next phase of the trial and there are still files out there with heights above this value.
As it’s not a fully automatic process, we would appreciate if you could please update any of your files above this height within the next four weeks. Any items that are still above this height after December 10 will be cropped to 8000px.
We highly recommend that you to update your preview images now to avoid any potential quality loss or unwanted impact on your item pages.
We’ll be actively monitoring this post for the next seven days answering questions related to the above. Please remember our community guidelines when posting.
