I use the square photo when I can for the 1st image in the listing and then rectangular images for all the rest. I think the square image lets you shower a larger item in the search page as it fills up the entire area.
wow, I thought you used the Plank's theme in GarageSale.
I guess Garagesale simplifies it because you can open a photo browser that grabs the folder structure from iPhoto. You select the raw photos and place them in the place holder, and GS re-sizes the photos to ebay max size.
I have noticed that your photos are large. That's the main downside of the new theme I chose for my store. The side bar goes all the way down which limits the width of the photos. Its the one downside so far.
for all of you other guys who suggested stuff.
Jgill......corrected the spelling.
Wes and MMM, thank you for the feedback on the photo format. I never thought of looking at it on my iPhone or iPad until you mentioned it. since most people first see you in the search results, I'm going to stay with square for a while and see how it goes.
I've learned a lot about GS, replacing images and tweaking stuff in the standard templates and the markup language. not straight forward, but pretty fast once you have it. The best thing was learning how to apply a template change to an entire set of auctions and not having to go into everyone and make the changes.
