As I mentioned in Update on Sales I started listing clothing, shoes, and accessories on Poshmark. Because I had already described the item in detail on eBay, the work was done.
I just had to transfer the information over to the Poshmark site. Copy and paste. I did however, have issues with some of the pictures. When I take a picture for eBay, I like to make sure that the item is as close as possible to fill the picture frame. I think the item looks best this way. When I would copy and paste the picture to Poshmark, more often than not, it didn’t fit in their photo square.
This is a picture of a man’s tie that I posted on eBay.
This is the same picture copied and pasted onto Poshmark’s site.
As you can see, only half of the picture fits into the square that Poshmark has for pictures. Poshmark has square pictures (1:1), Facebook pictures need to be a horizontal rectangle (4:3), eBay takes any size or shape as long as it’s at least 500 pixels.
I have always used a Fuji 35mm camera to take my pictures on a setting of 4:3. When I copy and paste them onto Poshmark, they are too wide, (or too tall if the picture was taken with the portrait orientation.) I checked my camera, and there isn’t a 1:1 or square setting. It then dawned on me that Poshmark is an app, therefore, the majority of sellers are most likely listing their items from their phones. I checked the camera setting on my phone, and found that it does have a 1:1 setting. The picture of these great loafers were taken with my phone. Look how great it fits the Poshmark picture square!
Last night, while skimming through Facebook, I came upon one of the seller groups that I belong to where someone posted that they were having trouble posting their pictures on Poshmark because they were square. Several people replied that using your phone camera usually works. Others mentioned some apps that can help like SquarePhoto for androids.
