Are you "cropping" yourself short?
I'm not tech savvy at all so I can't give you any specific pixel schmixel info but I can tell you that you should totally crop your eBay pictures SQUARE size.
If you're not, you're not maximizing the amount of exposure your listing gets.
Do a search on eBay...
Notice how the pictures that are cropped at a perfect square appear to be bigger than the pictures that are cropped like a rectangle?
If you're picture is a square the ENTIRE space that eBay provides for pictures is filled.
In order to be able to crop your pictures this way you have to keep it in mind while you're actually taking the pictures. As I look through the view finder, I visually try to calculate and make sure that I can indeed crop the image square without cropping off any of my actual item(s).
Every little bit helps with eBay as far as presenting your item in the best possible way to get it SOLD!
People say that June is slow but my sales for the past 7 days has been $721 and I don't have a store stocked full of thousands of items or anything. More like 90.
Have a great week... this heat might melt us all! :)
