At cabinet7, high quality photos play an important role in the description of an item. Potential buyers and collectors will inspect your photography in great detail. Clear, high-quality imagery is very important.
The better the picture, the higher the sales price.
Good quality images help to prevent buyer dissatisfaction.
Please take a look at our tips for taking great pictures of your item.
1. Use a neutral background
- Use a neutral, and if possible white background to make your item stand out.
- Consider using a large piece of cardboard, or a white wall.
2. Use proper lighting
- Please take photos in broad daylight, as it helps to enhance the details of an item.
- Artificial light obscures the true colours of an item. Do not use flash photography because it looks unattractive.
- Make sure there is no shade on the bottle.
3. Steady your camera
- If the camera moves while a photo is being taken, the image will lose focus.
- Please use a tripod for your camera so the photo is sharp.
4. Only depict the item you’re selling
- Only take pictures of the item you want to value and/or sell.
- The background should be neutral.
5. Pick your camera carefully
- A digital camera is far better than a smartphone camera for taking photos, especially close-up shots.
6. No self-portraits
- Do not take pictures where parts of the body are visible.
7. Bottle: Upright standing & entirely on photo
- Please make sure to show the bottle standing upright. When taking a full size photo, make sure to show the whole bottle and not to cut off the top or bottom.
- Do not take the picture from above or below, but from the side.
8. Sharp and focus
- Avoid unclear, fuzzy photos.
- The focus should be on the bottle, not on the background.
- For closeup shots, make sure the part on which you’re focusing is clear.
