    You need a dress shirt and tie on that mannequin before you put a jacket on it.

    Personal preference, but yes. I think it "frames" the jacket. Real photographers will know better, but to my untrained eye it just looks off with the top cut off.

    It also lets the buyer see how it will potentially look as a complete outfit. Jackets by themselves are sexy. But seeing how it'll look when you're all suited up is a panty dropper.

    Bought a pallet of HP laser printers at a DRMO auction that I used for work, the HP4's are work horses. It's like buying a '72 Nova, they're easy to fix because you can see everything under the hood. Keep one loaded with the 2x page labels. I can't remember the last time I had to buy new toner, labels are not toner heavy. That said, a label printer has to be the way to go for more than 30-40 labels a week.

    Anyone sell an item and then immediately see it listed by the buyer using your photos? Not really a big deal but if I'm flipping something I at least take my own photos. I guess if I were a regular seller I'd use a watermark, but hey, more power to 'em.

    This thread is intimidatingly large so I'll ask a stupid noob question. Some of the others (shoe care, shoe care product necessities, etc.) typically have a long, thorough post pulling together best tips and tricks. Does one exist on this thread, or do I have to read all 4000+ posts and pull together my own best practices?
