    I support this idea. Pictures sell your items, and pics of them laid flat do nothing for your product.

    Also one of these helps...just built it today... any suggestions would be great on how to set up the lights. Used tissue paper but thinking about something else [​IMG]

    You should consider daylight balanced or full spectrum bulbs for the lamps you use to illuminate your light box. It will help the colors be more accurate and no yellow tint on the background.

    I think the worse are those "Posted with eBay for iPhone" lots. So all one sees is a tiny blurry 1 inch thumbnail and a brief one line description. That's it. I'd be surprised if they manage to sell anything.

    BTW Brianpore your pics are coming up as Photobucket "This is a Private Album" "enter Private Album Password:"...

    I understand - It was being tested by Ebay a while back - They stopped allowing the pictures that were not clear or not close enough but than they stopped it for some reason earlier last year.

    Maybe failed because it was to much Content Mangement...

    A white cotton sheet is better than tissue paper, which looks too thin. +1 on the lighting being important.

    Sheets will be more durable, but tissue gets the desired effect. I'd personally go with 60w clamp lights on all three sides to get enough light, since it appears to be pretty dark in there. Those lamps on the side appear to be doing the trick, but you definitely need a stronger top light source.
