The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Hey everyone!
I am working very hard on the website at the moment but I would like to have your input on something.

I have posted several stock packs on this account, photographed by me. I did edit the coloring in photoshop to make them look more interesting. Of course I will be posting these and more on the website. Here comes the question:

Would you prefer the original images without the editing so that you can put your own actions/coloring on them OR do you want me to just post the edited photos?
I will say that the original images aren't nearly as good as the ones I posted here, but you can do alot of cool things with actions.

Any feedback on this subject would be very much appreciated, I hope you all have a great day and I am hoping to get the website up later this week ;)

~ Claudia

Having both seems to be the most logical choice, however, one would have to consider the the time involved into fulfilling such a suggestion. My answer is simply this: "Whichever option that gives you the most enjoyment." I am sure that the results you deliver will inevitably be fantastic.

Aww thank you :)
And you are right, having to put up both would take up twice as much time.
When editing I sometimes put like 20 different actions over 1 photo just to see which one looks best :P

Exactly. One could only imagine the time, effort, even heartache that goes into making your superb textures. What you have just described to me is probably just the tip of the iceberg! I personally love your edited textures, as they are so unique and classy.

Can't wait to see your website, Insha'Allah it'll be great!

i prefer an edited one, but not heavily edited. sometimes it saves time for us to play around with the pictures when it is already edited and you can straightaway turn it into textures or layout =)

I would say both in diffrent packs. That way your visitors can have a choice on which pack they want to chose. Though you have given me an idea for some of mine.

My opinion will not be helpful. . . I'll say the both maybe in a different pack

Both? Maybe you can make 2 packs, one with edited photos, and in the other packs the original photos?
Or you put them in 1 pack!
(wat overzichtelijker ook voor jouzelf denk ik.)

Can you post both?
I guess for who is at beginning with PS and the graphic word, can be more helpful the ones who you have edited...
And for the others the original one...
Or... Here you can post the edited one (with a link back to the site), and on the web site the original?
