How to take better Ebay photos with your iPhone

How to take better Ebay photos with your iPhone I buy and sell fairly frequently on Ebay and as I was teaching a friend, how to Sell on Ebay, he made the very astute observation, that most of the photo’s on Ebay look like they have been taken with a “crappy” camera phone, and that you couldn’t really see the products very well. I told him that Ebay has a great mobile App that lets you post straight from your phone to their site and many people use this feature. Also, even if you are using a desktop or laptop […]
