Use eBay picture service or host your own photos?

If you use the eBay picture service, your first photo is free. Without But each additional picture will cost $ 0.15 and Supersize image will be another $ 0.75.

This may reduce their profits in the auction if necessary, say, 3 or 4 pictures showing different angles, and one image to Supersize "WOW effect"!

So I found a way to have many photos I want on my list without having to pay these fees to eBay: I make my own image hosting!

They a lot of image hosting services for choose online. Some are free and others charge a small monthly or annual fee.

Currently I use Photobucket Image Hosting. They have a free starter pack (which gives 25 MB of disk space) or a Premium Package (unlimited disk space) to store your photos. You can subscribe to premium packages for 3 months ($ 9.00) or one year ($ 25.00).

Now, how to upload your images to your photo hosting service?

First, you have to resize of their images. One reason to change the size of your photos is that Photobucket limits the size of the images to load – 250 KB for the free pack and 1 MB for the premium package.

The second reason is that you do not want to stop your eBay listings with huge images! Large images take forever to load, and customers potential press the back button instead of waiting.

So I recommend limiting each photo to a size of 500 pixels or smaller. I use the IrfanView free image optimizer to resize my images.

Once you resize your photos, you can upload the image of your hosting service, which is very simple.

For Photobucket, you have to log into your account. Once found, there is a blank window in the top of the page marked "image" with a "browse" button on the right. Click "Browse", and a new "choose file" appears window. This window displays the files on your computer. From this window, select the file containing the image you want to upload to the Internet.

Once you have found the picture on the right, highlight the mouse and then the "window select the file, click the" Open "button. The name and location image is displayed on Photobucket.

Now click the "submit" button, and voila! The selected image is in Photobucket. You can even upload multiple images at once using the "submit multiple pictures" feature.

Well, his image is found Photobucket now. But how to insert the picture in your eBay listing?

Once your image is hosted on Photobucket, you'll need to copy the URL of the photo (which is directly beneath it) and paste it into your eBay listing. Use the following HTML code to display the image correctly on the list (do not forget to reverse the quotes at the beginning and end of this code!), paste the URL into the Photobucket image says "Image URL":

> img src = "image URL" img src = "image URL" border = 8
