Another turn off is a screen covered in finger print smudges. Yes they all get smudges, but clean the damn thing before posting pictures!

I would say that stops unscrupulous sellers from using that pic in their own ad.

considering this is a photography forum though, i'd say most that are decent at photoshop can fix that up with their own name in under 2 mins...

Thieves are surprisingly lazy. They won't spend time removing a name if it requires any kind of effort; they'll just move on and take a clean image.

People who would spend the effort removing a card like that are more likely to spend the effort taking their own photograph instead.

When i'm selling on craigslist i usually have really good pictures, to the point where the buyer would ask in the email if i can take a picture with my cell phone. They think it's a stock photo i got off the internet. LOL

It has become much easier to use a cell or Ipad to list things these days..My I pad takes far better pics than some I've seen posted.

"Awesome" doesn't mean retouched to remove flaws. That's not awesome, that's fraud. Awesome basically means clean, clear, sharp, and close.

but what about all those food vendors with their product shots that look wayyyy better than what they actually serve you?

Is that fraud too?

Here's another classic example. If a seller can't be bothered to take even a couple of basic photos I'm not interested and will move on to the next item. None of the photo gear I am interested in is rare or unique.

Do not feel pictures are necessary. Please refer to my feedback, which speaks for itself.

McDonald's has some YouTube videos of their chef and photographer plus various assistants putting together a shoot for one of their burgers. They used everything right from the restaurant and managed to display it perfectly so it looked nothing like what you buy.

It's all in the management and employees at each franchise. We happen to have a franchise in this area that is really on top of things and their burges pretty much look like the ads, are always fresh, and taste great. I've been to quite a few outside my area that are pretty bad and I've gotten to the point of not going to their places unless I'm familiar with them.

Inspired by this thread :

I'm actually giving away this film p&s, but i'm broke so no shipping, if you want it you can pick it up from me anytime you want :)
Edit : I just remembered the rules, Admins please don't ban me, i'm not selling i'm giving away, and i attached a blurry picture just for fun and to keep the current theme of this thread going.

I hate it when people don't take good pics of their stuff!
Even when I do, though, I can't seem to sell anything. :(


I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."

A few years ago I took some pictures of things I was putting up on Ebay. A few days after posting my auctions I received a message from someone on Ebay claiming there was someone else using my photos. Low and behold I checked it out and he used all my photos to sell his identical item. No messages sent to the seller were responded to. I also watermark all my photos now too.

This lens picture hurts my eyes.

I saw another "LNIB" lens offered on another forum. Someone asked the seller to post pictures. Seller responds with "It's LNIB, I don't need to waste my time with pictures". :lol:

I agree if they can't put the effort in for pictures, what kind of effort will you get when packing and shipping.
