I spent ALL day yesterday editing my photos. It was tedious and boring. But oh so rewarding when I woke up this morning to 100 views and a sale! All my pictures were taken with my iphone and edited in photoshop. I cant wait to get a real camera and see what effect it has on my image quality and sales!

So dont underestimate the power of your photos!

Those are great photos for an iPhone.

A real camera would be even more incredible! Great job!

Great photos! Amazing that they were taken with an iphone! Photoshop is the best.

Wow! An iphone? I'm totally impressed! :) Yes, it's important to keep re-working your shop to make it better.... as much as I would love to just sit around and wait for sales to come rolling in. I edited all of my photos yesterday as well... never knew about FotoFuse until then. I am still a novice at it, but I definitely got a ton of views on items that hadn't been viewed as much before and 2 sales! :) I love when hard work pays off!

Great pics! I need to reshoot a lot of mine as well. Constantly tweaking seems to be key for all of our shops. Congrats on the views and sale!

Great photos definitely make a difference! It's hard to believe that yours were taken with a phone--the quality is very good!
