Good pictures sell your products on Etsy
It is so simple, really. Good photography is the most important thing for your e-shop, it is literally the only thing that can persuade your potential customer to buy.
Photographing for Etsy is something that many sellers struggles with. I myself still have A LOT to learn... but there are some tips I can share with you! I hope you will find it helpful :)
Ready picture of silk scarf FLOWERS and it's unedited version.
So, here are the main things that need to be taken under consideration:
- staging (good presentation of the item, good background)
- lighting (can be fixed in GIMP)
EDITING with GIMP or Photoshop
- color balance and contrast
- editing small imperfections of the background
You can check my ETSY shop to see the pictures, some better, some not so much ;) but I hope there is visible progress :D Please feel free to share you knowledge in the comment section!
