The thumbnail effect on successful sales

The thumbnail size is a very important factor to consider in your microstock strategy.

If you look at your images at the thumbnail size, compared with all the others on the page, you will guess at once if your image is going to be a good seller.

It stands out? The main subject is easily recognizable? The colors are saturated and bright? Simply answering to yourself those questions may improve a lot your sales.

I often work in Photoshop with the navigator to a thumbnail size. The navigator provides that first impression that a buyer has when looking at thumbnails. A very useful guide... for me anyways!

Thanks for pointing out the importance of the thumbnail!!! Your blog has many helpful hints as well.

you know, this is a very important advice which is less discussed, it's very important also to look at your photo or design if it's on your computer screen for example from a distant before submitting to judge your work better
thanks Saniphoto
