I’m wondering why it’s so difficult and you have to create your own preview and thumbnail. Please tell me if this is correct because I’m confused.
1. I begin with my adobe.eps vector file and from it 2. I have to create a jpg preview file that is 590 pixels wide (the height doesnt matter?) 3. Then I reduce it to an 80×80 pixels and create a thumbnail jpg. (Why can’t the preview file I created be used as a thumbnail?) 4. Then I zip my main .eps file 5. and I zip my preview set of the 2 jpgs 6. next I fill out all the information including the pixel sizes of the files? So the preview jpg I have to list the size in pixels and then the adobe.eps I have to list the print size? 7. finish filling out and submit
Is this correct and is this all? Seems excessive.
The height matters a bit for the preview, it’s what shows up when people hover over the thumbnail in search results. If it’s too short (less than 700px) it might look funny. I think this is still true at least.
You don’t have to reduce it to 80×80, but maybe choose the best way to present your file in that space to attract the more people to click on it.
You can use both of those previews to help sell your file.
You don’t zip up the large preview file or the thumbnail, but if you have extra preview files you can zip those up and add them. They are not required.
You don’t need to write in the print size for vectors, because they are vectors. Make sure you are uploading to the correct section. On the upload page you can switch in the box in the upper right corner of the page ‘Switch Upload Category’.
