I have to admit that I rarely use photo editing software to correct photos that I take casually on my smart phone, but maybe some of you do. When I did the research for this article, I was complete blown away by the number of choices out there (and most of them are free).
My photography these days is mostly limited to taking photos of items that I am going to list on my website or in my eBay store. And, until now, I havn’t needed to do much to use them as intended.
But recently I purchased a custom layout template for my listings in eBay. This addition created a whole new set of problems with my images that I wasn’t expecting. So now I’m really digging into photo editing software and guess what? You get to go along for the ride.
My goal is to list at least five new products a day on eBay, which means editing at least three to five or six photos for each item. To accomplish this, I need something that will make these photos meet the necessary quality standards for the layout template with just a few clicks.
I also work with various sources for my photos: some from my smart phone, some from a digital camera, and many from my suppliers right off the web. I’ll report my results of my first choice next time. Until then, Happy Shuttering!
