PoweredTemplate General File Preparation Guidelines

This article contains instructions on preparing your file for submission to PoweredTemplate. For help with our upload process including how to format your submission title, tags and description, view our item upload guide.

Save your Main File(s)

  • File must not exceed 100 MB.
  • Organize your design into easy to edit, clearly labeled layers and groups.
  • Organize and label common elements so that customers are able to easily edit your file.
  • The more editable your file is, the more valuable it is to customers.
  • Files should be logically structured and organised.

Check your Assets

Make sure you have the right to use any of your assets in a commercial resale work. If you have assets that are linked to the main file, be certain you’ve included them in your .ZIP file.

Create a Help File

You must include documentation to introduce the customer to your item and its components. This can be a text file or a PDF. The minimum requirements for documentation are that it must include:

  • The names of the fonts used in the item
  • Non-standard fonts (fonts that don’t come with an OS like Windows or OS X) should include links where they may be purchased and/or downloaded.
  • A clear explanation of any special techniques used for editing the file, such as the use of smart objects, layer styles or linked images.

Image Previews

Create preview images. They must be JPGs, JPEGs or PNGs no less than 800px on any of its sides, and named in the order that you want them to appear using one of the following formats:

  • 001_preview.jpg, 002_preview2.jpg, 003_closeup.jpg, 004_any_name.jpg;
  • slide1.jpg, slide2.jpg, slide3.jpg, …, slide999.jpg

The first image with 001_ or slide1 will be used as product main preview image. Make sure your preview image is an accurate representation of your file. Your preview image must not contain trademarks or images of celebrities.

You are also not permitted to artificially add any official PoweredTemplate graphical assets to your previews, e.g. community badges or trending assets. This is considered “gaming the system” and works against our terms and conditions.

Create “Preview” folder in your main product archive and place the preview images there.

Final Steps

Check that your preview image, thumbnail, title, description and tags follow our formatting standards. Put your finished design, previews, and all supporting information into a single zipped folder.
