5. Working with Photos > 5.1. Hacks 70–82

Hacks 70–82

There are no two ways about it: a photo can make or break an auction.

Attractive, clear, well-composed photos will excite your customers and get you more money for your items. Poor photos, however, will make your item—and therefore your auction—less desirable. And, not surprisingly, having no photo is tantamount to auction suicide (aucticide?).

But there’s more to photos than the basic mechanics of transferring photos to your computer [Hack #73] , preparing the files, and putting them in your auctions. First, there’s proper composition and lighting [Hack #70] , something made easier if you assemble a makeshift studio [Hack #72] , and then there are the nuances of close-up photography [Hack #71] . But the real fun begins when you start coming up with creative ways to put photos in your listings and make them dance with a little JavaScript.
