Starting July 1 2013, eBay will start enforcing these picture quality requirements on all new, revised, and relisted items:

All photos must be at least 500 pixels on the longest side of the picture.
Photos cannot have borders.
Photos cannot have seller-added text or seller-added artwork.
When you list a used item outside of books, movies, music, and video games, you cannot use the eBay catalog stock photo in the primary photo position. You must upload your own photo.
You must upload at least one photo per listing.

An important note:

All new and revised listings and relistings are subject to the picture quality requirements, including Good ‘Til Cancelled listings. Existing Good ‘Til Cancelled listings that automatically renew (without revisions) will not be impacted at this time.

Wheels, I rang them and told them to jamb their new rules where the sun don't shine, literally.
I told them quite clearly I would not be complying with their silly photo rules .
Will be interesting to see where it leads. For now they haven't touched me.
Blessed be those who get off their ass and have a go !!

Friar, if you host the photos elsewhere rather than have them uploaded to eBay's picture hosting service, you will not be forced into compliance with these new rules.

Quote: "The new picture quality requirements only apply to pictures that are uploaded to eBay picture hosting service."

"No man is an Iland, intire of it selfe; every man is ...a part of the maine; ...any mans death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankinde"
