Pictures really SELL your items.
In our section "How To Get The Highest Prices For Your Items," you
learned why and how to use photographs in your auctions. Now you need to think about where your pictures are hosted. You can put quite a few on Photo
Island for free. Most of the other picture hosting sites are no longer free.
There are free sites available all over the internet. But, almost all of them will not allow you to put pictures on
The sites that host your pictures for free do come with problems, only one of which is limited space. Many auctions have been completely ruined by free hosts that shut down all
the pictures because the seller had too many visitors! Ebay offers one picture for free per auction. And, even the sites that charge you per picture have problems. The biggest ones are speed and reliability. Haven't you
ever gone to an auction listing page and seen little red x's instead of photos? Worse yet, you've gotten stuck waiting and waiting for a picture to load. After two
minutes, you get frustrated and simply leave that listing. Well, that's a good way for anyone to lose sales!
The best way, hands down, to host your pictures is to do it yourself. The sites listed below have the lowest prices in town, some as little as $4.95 per month. That's probably less than you pay a picture hosting place. For
that fee, you will have space to host more pictures than you could ever use. And, when your site is not grouped together with 50,000 other Ebay sellers, the loading of your pictures
will not be slowed down. A real time saver for you is that you won't have to physically get an aucdtion code for each of your pictures.
