The photos of the items for your listings are a very important part of marketing your items. They represent your item first in terms of attracting customers to your listing. People often use the look of the item in the photo as a way of determining the condition of the item. With that in mind, I suggest that you may careful attention to the photos you take for your listings. Once that is done, you may need to do a few things to clean up the picture.
Adobe Photoshop is an expensive option for cleaning the images and making them more attractive to a potential buyer. At nearly $700 for the latest version, that software may not be the best option for the typical seller. Thankful, there is another tool that can help and it will not make that large a dent in your budget.
