Ebay auctions will have increased impact. If a potential buyer reads about an item being in good condition, he migth believe it or not. If he sees a good picture showing a clean item in good condition he might enter a bid straight away.
Some tips about photographs:
- Try different angles with your digital camera
- Try taking pictures with or without flash
- If taking picture of metal object avoid reflection of the flash
Taking close-ups of smaller items with a digital camera can be tricky. Here a
can more appropriate. Eg hard drives or a stick of SDRAM can be easily placed on the scanner. The buyer will be able to eg read the text printed on the unit.
Most of my items will have a Gallery Picture - a bit extra cost but many more people will look at the item. Found that gallery items look best if they are about 600 to 800 pixels in one direction.
