You’ve completed all our previous steps, so that means it’s time to upload!
Now before we jump into the technical parts of uploading, we strongly recommend you check out some of Envato’s item quality expectations before you upload your items. Things such as:
- Item Information & Item Presentation Requirements
- Technical Requirements
- Legal Requirements – it is your responsibility to ensure your items are clear of any potential legal issues before you upload.
We also have a great ongoing Envato Reveals series on our Author blog page that covers topics such as customer trends, insights and SEO essentials.
Uploading For Your Content Type
Here at Envato we do things a little differently. If your item type falls under these categories – Photography, Stock Video & Motion Graphics, Video Templates, Template Kits or Music, then you’ll have to upload your items through your Market account, whether that be on VideoHive, AudioJungle or ThemeForest.
If your item category is Graphics or Web & Code then you can upload directly through your Elements Dashboard.
We’ve included the different content types and where to upload here for you, to make things simple:
Stock Video/Motion Graphics
Web & Code
So now you wait for your items to be reviewed for Elements (keep an eye out as we have a Pro Tips article coming soon dedicated purely to the review process) and you finally hear back that you got approved! Welcome, it’s awesome to have you!!
But how do you now get your items across to Elements? No stress, we’ve broken it done in this table for each content type:
|Photos & Stock Video/Motion Graphics||After review, your approved items are transferred to Elements automatically by us – so you don’t have to worry. |
|Template Kits||After review, your approved items are transferred to Elements automatically by us – so you don’t have to worry.|
|Video Templates/Music Items||After review, your items can be *opted-in by you for Elements on the item’s ‘edit’ page on Envato Market.|
|Web and Code||Your items must first be published on Envato Market and can then be uploaded/linked through the ‘My Items’ section on your Envato Elements Dashboard.|
|Graphics||You can *upload your items directly through the ‘My Items’ section on your Envato Elements Dashboard.|
*Opting in your item through Market
*Uploading through your ‘My Items’ section on your Elements Dashboard
And that’s it for uploading to Elements. If you’d like to know more about the technical aspects of uploading your items and how to use our tooling, check out our Upload Methods Help Centre article where we use screen captures and step-by-step instructions for your specific content type. Or if you have any questions and would like to get in touch with us directly please email email@example.com.
