Should you add photos? Success! The box truck I listed last week has been sold. I advertised in both the Mobile Vans/Trailers section and the Business for Sale section. Your tip on lots of photos was the key. I ran the ad for 3 months before with only 1 exterior photo...it generated about 2 calls per week but no offers. I re-ran it with 6 photos showing off the interior and had 3 people driving 4 hours each to race here with a deposit in the first couple days...and all 3 would probably have bought it! M.G.
"Collage" Photos Warning: In order to lower our already low prices, some people group 2 or more photos in photo software creating one photo which shows a "collage" of photos. Thereby they expect to pay just one $5 photo fee to us. That is not acceptable. However, it is also not effective. All horizontal photos are reduced to 250 pixel width and vertical photos to 180 pixel width, and what that means is that your "collage" photo will be so small no one will be able to see effectively what is in your grouped pictures.
$5.00 Service Fee to Exchange or Expand Your Photos - If you submit photos and we publish them, and later you request us to replace or add them with 1 or more new photos; there is a $5.00 service to compensate for the time it takes us prepare and publish the new photos. Please try to do all your photos in the first setup. It helps to keep our ad prices low. Thanks.
E-mail: If you have a digital camera you can email photos to us. Send them as an attachment to an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you use Microsoft Outlook, click New for a new email, click Insert then File and identify the location of your photos to attach. Your camera software often has even easier ways to attach them as well. For best results, please send as JPG format whenever possible, but we can accept GIF and BMP formats. You may send us a ZIP file, BUT the files within it should be JPG, GIF or BMP only. JPG works best.
Scanner: If you have photos printed and a scanner you can scan your photos and email them to us. PLEASE DO NOT SCAN PHOTOS PRINTED OUT ON COLOR INKJETS UNLESS THEY ARE HIGH RESOLUTION. They will look very grainy. Better to send us glossy or mat photos, or photos direct from your camera. We have found that most people do not have the experience to scan and retouch photos very well, so let us do that is your best advice.
Postal Mail for Print Photos Only: If you have print photos we will scan them FREE here in our office. Mail them to our office. If using postal mail to send print photos we advise you to not send your only originals; we are not responsible for their loss. Label your name and contact info on back of all photos. Photos are not returned unless you also provide a self-addressed stamped return envelope. Send to Find A Groomer, Inc., P.O. Box 2489, Yelm, WA 98597 USA.
Online Web Photos: If your photos are already published online we can often grab them from the web page. Just let us know the URL of the page where your photos are published on the Web. Contact us to make arrangements.
