After hearing the many Etsy sellers discussing what it takes to be chosen for the Etsy home page, StudioCherie decided to share some helpful tips on her blog, Studio Cherie. (A great resource for Etsy sellers!) She also shared the tip in the Shop Makeover flickr group. We love to see sellers sharing their knowledge, so we’re reposting her wisdom below. Check out the original post here.
We see versions of this question posted daily on the Etsy forums: “Are my photos Treasury worthy?” “Why am I never picked for the Etsy front page?” Answers abound in the form of photography tips and tricks and networking advice. In my opinion, what most of us are missing in our own photography is the vital element of perspective. How do your photos look side by side with those that are appearing on the front page? Using Etsy’s Poster Sketch you can easily check for yourself and, in some cases, make adjustments to your existing photos to make them work.
