Showcase Your Items for Free in Kitely Market’s Ad Campaign

Post by Ilan Tochner » Sun Nov 23, 2014 7:36 am

Kitely Market is the leading metaverse marketplace, serving all Hypergrid-enabled destinations as well as several closed OpenSim grids. However, not everyone knows that, so we’ve decided to start advertising Kitely Market on virtual-world related websites to help spread the word.

Our advertising campaign will showcase the high-quality products that can be found on Kitely Market and delivered to the metaverse. If you’re a Kitely Market merchant and you want to get free exposure for your products then read this post to find out how to get them included in our advertising campaign.

If you have any questions, please ask them in this forums thread.

Hi Marstol,

This campaign is intended to be ongoing with updates to the ad selection made every few weeks. However, ads that continue to perform well won't likely be replaced so getting a great ad in early can help you get a spot which might not be available for that item category later. In any case, we want to start advertising early next month so I'd recommend sending us a few ads for your most attractive / best selling items as soon as you can.

It seems that GIMP cant save files with the .pst extension.
What other format do you accept? .xcf or a plain jpg?

I guess there might be a typo in the blog post.

Should .pst be .psd, which is the usual suffix for Photoshop files?

Hi Xzarina,

We need the files in PSD format but you can edit the files in GIMP (which opens PSD files) and save it to XCF then load the XCF into the free Paint.NET program and save it to PSD format with this plugin: https://psdplugin.codeplex.com/ (or you can just edit them in PAINT.NET to begin with).

Actually, in GIMP, if you choose Export instead of Save As and then manually change the format to .psd, it works and can be opened in Photoshop. :)

Some of the items I wanted to add are difficult to see against the light background. Are drop shadows, silk, shading or darkening of the background allowed?
