Taking Quality Pictures of eBay Items

Part of the Starting an eBay Business For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Taking a quality photo of an item that you want to sell in an eBay auction is important. These eBay photography tips will help you present a professional image to enhance your merchandise and fetch top dollar on eBay:

  • Be sure that the item is clean, unwrinkled, and lint-free.

  • Take the photo against a solid, undecorated background.

  • Make sure the picture is in focus.

  • Check that you have enough lighting to show the details of your item.

  • Take second and third images to show specific details, such as a signature or a detail that better identifies your item.

  • It's unnecessary to use an image that's more than 72 dpi for online purposes. Don't worry about megapixels.

  • Try to keep the total size of your pictures in the description less than 50K for a smooth and swift download. eBay compresses the photos you upload for the top of the listing but does not compress the photos in the description.
