Do I still own my hero banner if I list it?
Yes, listing your hero banner on our platform does not transfer ownership. You retain all rights to your work and can remove your banner from the marketplace at any time. For banners that have been sold multiple times, a six-month notice period is required for removal to allow customers adequate time to download the banner.
How does a hero banner get featured?
Our featured section showcases exceptional banners selected for their creativity and visual appeal. To enhance your chances of being featured, we recommend uploading at least six images in a 16:9 aspect ratio along with your listing.
How are thumbnail images selected?
Upon uploading your images, you'll have the option to choose one as the cover image. This image will be used as both the thumbnail and the featured image on your listing.
How are popular banners determined?
Popularity is assessed based on a combination of sales and views.
Why are my views not constantly changing on my profile?
Views on your listings are updated every 24 hours, so there may be a delay in the reflection of the view count.
