Why are REAL pics so hard to take?!?!

It seem's this mostly surrounds Gymbo stuff. All SKU pics and NO real pics of the actual outfits the seller owns. I refuse to buy items when I can't see pics of the real items. I actually had a mama tell me that she doesn't take pics because there are so many items and was wondering what I was worried about as she had given good descriptions. Um..why do I want to go through the trouble of having to get my money back if I am not satisfied with something? And isn't it going to be my fault if I am not satified with an item and I didn't get real pictures? Apparently this is normal on another forum but I just don't get it. Rant over!

I've seen that on another gymbo specific forum, I don't "shop" there. Most have an inflated sense of worth anyway.

Not sure if your talking about this forum but there was someone awhile back that scammed people here and other sites and only had stock photos of gymbo items. I agree, if you don't have a pic. of the actual item in your possession I won't buy.

If you can't take a picture the sale is not important to you.

I never understood that either... if you have the 2 minutes to search for the picture, upload it and post it, you have the time to post real pics of the items you are trying to sell! I can't imagine buying something used, based on the stock photo.

Re: Why are REAL pics so hard to take?!?!

Is it permissible to use stock photos of new items? I usually take my own photos as well, but if I have a new item and do not want to remove it from the packaging, I'll send or link to a stock photo so potential buyers can see the item more clearly. So, usually, I'll send my own photo of the package and a stock photo of the contents, although I think I've used exclusively stock photos at times.
