Buying online is a tricky proposition. Collectible condition is very subjective. Pictures help tell the story of your collectible. Photos go a long way to getting your items sold. Customers can determine for themselves if an item suits their collection.

Digital cameras are easy to acquire these days. Digital “film” costs nothing, so take a lot of photos. Once you have a few great shots, consider using an editing tool, like PicMonkey, to rotate and crop your image. Image editors are best used to present a well-composed view of your item as it would appear in person.

I use PicMonkey for editing images on the go. Since it’s online, I can use it anywhere. It’s very easy to use! The basics are free, but paid plans are available if you want access to their special features like templates, filters, fonts, layouts and editing tools. (Affiliate links)
