    I've heard for years about how great cell phone cameras are... so please, us "shoppers" beg you... when you post items for sale, please, please, please make sure the photo is well lit and in focus!

    I shouldn't have to ask the seller to send better pictures. If you're sloppy with the pics, how do I know you won't be just as sloppy with the transaction? Before posting, please look at your pictures carefully to make sure they are actually showing the detail of the items you are selling.

    Dark, fuzzy pictures come across as trying to hide something, to be honest.

    Thanks!

    When you post something, please, please, please make sure the post is in the correct forum.
    We shouldn't have to ask a Moderator to move your post to the correct forum. If you're sloppy with your posts . . . . well, you get the picture (pun intended). Before posting, please look at your post to make sure it is going in the correct forum.
    Sorry, woke up kinda early, bored, and just couldn't resist.

    This seemed like the most appropriate forum, since posting it in the "for sale" forum would have required a label like "for sale" or "wanted" etc., and none of those are appropriate either. It will not let you post to that forum with a "no label" subject.

    This is the 'Scams' forum and I agree that some scammers have intentionally used crappy photos but I don't think that was the thrust of your message. Here's what AA7BQ says about what should be posted in this forum:
    Forum Rules - Please Read Before Posting

    Perhaps the sixth item in the Online Swapmeet would be more appropriate? Take a look and see what you think.

    I agree. You should take good pictures using the proper setting.

    Even the lousiest phones these days can take decent pictures as long as there's adequate light.
    Some of these pics are so bad you do have to wonder if it's deliberate, do they not look at them when they post the ad?
