So eBay in it’s infinite wisdom has decided that all items sold on their website need larger pictures. The minimum is 500 pixels for the shortest side. Ok, that’s not unreasonable as I’ve seen some really tiny pictures for items where you really can’t see the item very well.
Unfortunately for me, 189 of my listings have pictures that are too small and I’m expected to replace them. A little bit frustrating but hey, larger pictures are likely to help increase my sales so the work should be worth it. However, a number of these 189 listings shouldn’t have tiny pictures because the pics saved in my “listed on eBay” folder are much larger. So somehow eBay shrank my photos…as many as 189 of them.
So instead of being a little bit frustrated I’m halfway to infuriated. I’d probably be angrier if I wasn’t used to eBay disappointing me.
