A picture is worth a thousand words and is invaluable to the sale of your item. Many buyers will not purchase an item sight unseen. So why not improve your chances? Take the time to take a well lit picture that showcases your item. Make sure you don't use a "busy" background that will detract from your product. A neutral color generally looks best. If it is an item to be worn, try displaying it on a mannequin or unique support. Get creative! But always remember to keep it in focus, check the lighting, and keep the pixels within the site parameters.
Remember when you start taking your photos, keep your megapixel setting around 4. There is no need to set it for the maximum that your camera can handle. The higher the megapixel setting, the larger the file size is; The larger the file size, the slower the photo loads, and the faster the buyer moves on to the next item for sale. OdzBodz Auctions Online has set a 1000 KB (1 MGB) maximum image size. The most ideal size for fast loading is 640x480 pixels.

All items listed for sale must have an actual photo of the item that a customer will receive. The only exception is if you are a drop shipper. In that case you may use a stock photo, but you must disclose that you are selling an item for a third party and that you are not the actual shipper of the item.
