No Such Thing As Too Many Pictures
When you’re selling comic books online, you need to be the buyers’ eyes and ears. This means you need to give them as much information as they’d have if they were examining the comic books in-person themselves. So when you’re taking pictures, just remember- there’s no such things as too many pictures and there’s no such thing as an irrelevant detail. The more pictures you provide, especially high-quality pictures, the most assured buyers will be.
Use Proper Lighting
Even amateur photographers know that lighting is everything when it comes to taking pictures. The best option would be to use specially-designed soft lights for taking pictures of your comics. If you don’t have access to them, that’s still fine! Just make sure you take your pictures in as well lit of an area as possible. Just be sure to limit their exposure to direct sunlight for extended periods as that can deteriorate their color and quality over time.
Front, Back and Spine
Since there’s no limit to how many pictures you take, make sure to snap some pictures of the parts of the comic that tend to wear the most and directly impact the quality and rating of a comic book. This is what serious buyers will be looking for. So make sure you snap pictures of the outside and inside front and back covers as well as the spine. If it helps to take these pictures in multiple angles to capture every last inch, by all means, do that!
Highlight Damage (If any)
You want to be as upfront and transparent as possible when selling your comic books, and that means being straightforward and honest about any damage or wear-and-tear. After all, the last thing you’d want is to put in all the hard work it takes to successfully sell a comic book, just to have a disgruntled buyer asking for a return. So if there’s any damage to your comic books whatsoever, make sure to take ample amounts of pictures showing that and be sure to bring attention to it in the description of the comic book as well.
