Menu > shooting menu > white balance > preset manual (scroll to the very bottom)> measure > it will ask you to take a picture of a white or grey background, take a picture of your background, getting it to focus on something (suppose you could switch to manual focus) is the hard part.

That's it.

Before I found that I was dicking with the little cursor in the color wheel/graph thing.  No more.

Disclaimer...The way my mind works, recently means like a year ago. I am cursed with remembering everything.

Thanks guys, really appreciate the help.

Averaging 1 non pay per 9 sales the past 2 months...second time on same (summery) item.  Maybe I'll get rid of it by Christmas.  And WTF do i have multiple watchers on BIN items...that are only $10-$12.../rant

Mostly a brag, but also related. Sold my super recent Bijan tie for $180, most likely just because I used the BINOBO format. Before I'd been using auctions and profiting peanuts on a lot of stuff, but this has proven far superior(for my sales at least) in just a couple weeks. Thanks for the tips here Brian!

Versace ties at Marshalls for around $50-60 each. No Versace tag, just a Marshalls tag. Worth the pickup for a flip as NWT will be hard to prove?

Thanks, worked wonders. Just got in my super white background and it makes a HUGE difference. Here are photos of my for the time being finished setup.

 

I now only resize and auto-contrast. I could prob just use the Raw photos if I really wanted to. The lighting/background are that damn good now IMO

 

1) Raw - Unedited out of the camera

 

2) Size Edited

 

3) Size Edited + Auto-Contrast

very nice. I'm looking for color differences between the 3 views. On my mbpro I can't tell a difference, I'll check when I'm hooked up to a cinema display.

 

You already had nice photo's but these help a buyer like me a ton. I'm sure your set up takes up a good bit of space. I hope you get to leave it in place and don't have to break it down very often.

There is no color difference, only a contrast difference between #2 and #3. It's very minor, but it makes the dark and light parts "pop" a little more.

 

All my photo stuff is set in place, in an approx. 20x15 room.

 

My old setup was fine, but I had to edit the background to make them look good. WAY too much time for the qty of listings I'm doing now.

What photo editing software? Usually I just use a preset filter that I created on Lightroom, have a few based on material / color and it's a one click edit
post #4168 of 15189

I open in infranview, edit in photoshop and save in infranview.

 

ctrl+c (copy)

crtl+v (paste)

crtl+t (resize)

ctrl+shirt+alt+L (auto-contrast)

ctrl+c (copy)

crtl+v (paste)

crtl+s (save)

 

Done.

My 2 cents: if you're going to picture & sell them as NWT, then you'd have to leave the Marshalls tags attached...which is less than ideal.

You could list as NWOT which isn't such a bad thing, but if they're the ties I am thinking of from Marshalls (vine or geometric pattern with small Medusa on front & back, similar to these), the sold price tops out at around $75 on eBay with the Versace tags attached...so maybe not much meat on dem bones.  But you could always try - carefully remove the Marshalls tag but leave the barb in place - if they don't sell, you have 30 days to re-attach the tag and return.  To me, not worth the effort to possibly clear $15 +/- after fees etc.

  

But I'm no Spoo, and defer to his advice.

Not worth it at all.
