    No dispute whatsoever. And the shirt is wrinkled, and the tuck at the bottom isn't perfect. In an ideal world, I'd address each of those. But as you well know, pics take a lot of freaking time. I've come to an uneasy compromise between perfection and efficiency. I try to keep my actual picture-taking to under 1 minute to put the item on Manny, set, shoot, unset. I get basically 1 hour per week to take all my shots. It's a straight cost-benefit analysis, and it's a completely pragmatic compromise.

    Does anyone have any advice for a bulk photo editing software. I shoot with an iPhone 4S using the Camera+ app. The picture quality is good, IMO, but, when I hit the 'enhance' feature it makes it infinitely better. It's a pain having to do this for each single picture. Is there a bulk app that I can use?

    Sorry, back to GarageSale...anyone know the difference between the basic program and the other? There is a considerable price difference, but it's not a big deal to me if it features things that I would really need.

    Also, I doubt anyone knows, but is there any problem using it in order to create listings for the international eBay sites rather than eBay.com?

    I am not sure if it is corrected by now, but the "basic" version WOULD have been perfect for most of us, but it has a minor flaw. The basic version doesnt allow the total character count in the title as eBay allows. Thus, you are left with title far shorter than you would like. To me, that was an incredible downfall that forced me to splurge for the better version.

    If you go to their website, they offer a free trial. Download and install both and see which one you like better!!!

    PS - If I didnt have GarageSale, I would be lost. :inlove:

    +1 and I probably do 1/10000th of the amount of Spoo-tacular. GS runs good reports, auto organizes templates based on your own settings. Its pretty nifty. It does have its kinks and is severely underfunded for development.
