    Hello all,

    I have noticed quite a few threads about taking photos of a good standard for ebay listings.
    The priority for all ebay photos is to make sure the image is clear, fills the frame and has no distractions in the background.
    For those who don't want to pay an additional expense for a lightbox and do not want to use up time cutting out images in a photo suite, here is a cheap and cheerful alternative which will give you very acceptable results.

    I've seen this idea before but its not something that many think of. Thank you so much for taking the time to post it here for our members.

    I've made it a sticky for this month so that people can put this cost saver into action.

    i didnt read all the posts, but i can just share what i know and do in this matter,
    i think having a good digital camera is a must, i have a cypershot 7.2 mega pixel, and its just perfect,
    the best photos are taken in the daylight with no flash, and you have to get the macro option on in your camera, the macro will get the smallest details of the item, after taking the picture, get a software that will do the crop, resize and even insert watermark to protect your picture of being used by someone else on the web, well, it will be all about experience in a while and thats it ;)
