Photo editing

I have several hundred photos of items in my eBay store that do not meet minimum size requirements. I am having the same problem with items for sale in Amazon. Anyone know an easy way to resize these? I have many of these pics stored on my computer hard drive. Thanks, Vern.

There some free photo resizers that will do it n bulk. Google bulk photo resizer and should cone up. However, if your photos are bitmapped, such as JPEG, the quality will get degraded somewhat.

The point here is that the OP needs to "upscale" a large number of photos to meet marketplace image requirements - so it's really a bulk resizer he needs as Jax pointed out.

The downside it that quality will be lost. It may not be noticeable if enlarging by a small amount, but anything over 15% or so (at a guess) will start to look bad.

The very best solution, from a quality point of view, is to take brand new photos that look great at high resolution rather than resizing the old ones. Although the minimum size is 500 pixels, to use the zooming feature 1600+ pixels is recommended!

Clearly, taking hundreds of new photos is a huge job... a practical solution might be to use a bulk resizer to enlarge to the minimum required (500px) then over time take new photos, starting with products with the worst existing photos and/or the most potential to benefit.

Here's a guide to the eBay image requirements:

ChannelAdvisor also have a good round up of image requirements for eBay, Amazon and Google:

Hi Vern.

The software that we use for resizing images is Gimp it is free and allows you to resize your images as well as many other features.

Obviously your source image will determine the quality of your new image and it may take a while to do several hundred.

E-commerce , love it or hate it, that's why we are here
