    2. Don’t crop the item you’re taking a picture of – give buyers the whole picture so they can see the item will fit, the overall look, and also flaws if there are any.

    3. Do make sure that your whole item is seen! Make that item the focus of the picture to show off what is being sold.

    4. Do creative things with how you arrange and take your pictures. Add a fun background and even little props to it.  Adding a pop of color to the background can also make your pictures stand out from the rest.
