So one thing that I’ve noticed is that, with the camera ability to take pictures of your products being kind of buggy and not letting people focus the picutre, I figured I’d give a trick to helping your phone to auto focus while also giving some tips on what pictures should be taken.
1) How to Auto Focus:
To be fair, this is more of a “How to make your camera focus before you move to much” but the shorter title sounds better. Anyway, when you are planning your picture of your game or other product, make sure that all parts of the product are shown. Stay as still as possible for you phone and let it try to adjust, if that doesn’t work, exit out of the program for the picture capture and try again, because we’d rather have a clear picture we can all understand and see rather then a picture we have to cross our eyes at to understand.
2) What Should Be Captured
If it’s just a game, make sure to take a picture of the front of the box so that we can see what game it is, and then the inside of the box so we can see all the products on the inside and see if their is anything missing like the manuals. taking a picture of the back may be necessary if their is any damage to the case or cover art that needs to be shown. This gives the buyer the ability to see if the product is worth the price of what you posted. Otherwise, all we have to go on is the impression that their maybe is a game in the box.
As to products, the same go’s for anything like conceals or toys. If the toys have never been opened, great just leave them their. If they have but you still have the box, not a bad idea to say that you still have said box. If no box is available, don’t worry about it to much but remember to reduce the price a hair since some people collect these toys. If it’s something like a console, then you need to take extra steps to prove your products are good. Don’t just leave a picture of the box or a far away picture of it sitting on the table. It would be best to see close up parts of the outside of the console like the fan so we can see any damage from it and close ups of the main system itself. Having pictures of the system with games is fine, but the main focus should be just the system for a few pictures and the games in their own pictures also. Following the same setup for the games pictures that come with the system so that we know the higher price tag for a system we all can look up and see online and know is a lower price value at GameStop is worth the extra bell’s and whistles.
Well those are my points that I wanted to put in. If anybody has anything else to add to what I’ve said, then go ahead and post it here!
