How to make Photos that sell.
Appearances matter, and these tips can make your items look like a million bucks in cross platform desktop and mobile buyers.
1. Use a plain, uncluttered background to make your item stand out.
Black background is perfect for Gold, White background is perfect for Silver and bronze. Red background (trays cloth) is hard to use if you photograph your coins inside trays because Red color will interfere with Camera undertones since it is not a neutral color. Avoid red unless you have advanced knowledge in photography
2. Keep things steady. Use a tripod.
3. Take high-resolution photos so your coin will look attractive on screens big and small.
4. Fill the frame with your coin .
5. Photograph your item from both sides, and capture its details.
Listings with better photo quality are 15% more likely to sell.

For our project, to show you how to improvise with common household, We used for camera, Samsung Galaxy S7 .Instead of Studio, we used a cardboard box with white paper.
Step one. Take a small piece of dough, make it round in your palm and press it with an object to flat it out.
Step two. Place the dough in the middle of rotating display and place the coin carefully in center.
Step three. Cover the flash lights with Baking paper or if you can’t find baking paper, use regular white printer paper Fix the light position from both sides.
Step four. Come closer as posible to the coin, if you use your phone this is a must. DO NOT ZOOM. Phones have digital zoom and it will ruin video with pixels.
Step five. Crop the video in your phone to have both sides of the phone and upload that video on our Facebook page (guests post section) since we have thousands of active followers or you can do it in your facebook or your youtube channel.
Step six. Send us the video link and we will upload it for you.
Notes. Facebook is much better since you can connect with active collectors. If don’t have any of these options available, send us the video with dropbox and we will upload in our official Facebook page.
Note. Listings with good quality videos have 30% more chances to sell.
This video is done with Samsung Galaxy s7 and the settings we described.
