    This question goes to all merchants selling physical products...

    I'm in the process of prepping our new site for launch on October 1st. The products we will be selling via our affiliate program our relatively small (jewelry-sized). My question is, what is the best/least expensive method to generate high quality (example http://www.mondera.com) product images?

    Further, is it possible to create those yourself with a relatively small (i.e. less than $400-$500) budget for equipment?

    Thanks!

    Erik

    You tell me..

    The below picture was taken with about $150 digital camera and a $20 tripod. It's pictured atop a $5 throw blanket.



    And yes, I made it.

    Just an update...

    Although I do have a pretty good quality camera (4 mega-pixels) and tripod, etc....no matter how hard I tried I was unable to duplicate the kind of quality I'm looking for (i.e. Mondera) So....

    I've been lucky enough to find a product photgrapher via google who not only created the qulaity I'm after, but is doing it for less than $30 per product!

    3 month till launch....

    I use a cruddy 1 megapixel camera, strong lighting and a large piece of white card, plus a little time to clean it up in PaintShop.

    Hi WebFusion

    Nice to know we're a pace setter with images

    Our images are all taken by a semi in-house photographer with an SLR plus lighting and so on to bring out the best in each product and then the images are further retouched to add / or remove drop shadows etc in Photoshop in PSD format before being converted to GIF and JPG.

    OR

    What some of our clients do who use our service is send us PSDs which we clean up and send back in excellent quality.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Hi Chris,

    Yep...Mondera's images are great ;-)

    Until I get more up to speed with paintshop, it looks like the best route will be using a Pro.

    He's cut me a deal slightly better than $28 per product (including all the image manipulation I want), so it doesn't sting too bad
