Tiplet: Product Images

Many of us with on-line businesses are often tempted to rely on our suppliers “hosting” product pictures.

Among the lessons I have learned the hard way –

The problem comes when they move or disco that product and suddenly you have products with no image, but taking up space in your inventory.

It may take some time, but it would be in your own self interest to build your own library of images – EVEN if it is just dragging the image to a file for that supplier/product on the machine you use primarily for preparing info for the web.

    Now that there are such services as http://www.dropbox.com/ and http://box.net/ , you may not even need to save them on your own computer, or at any rate, not only on it. So far, they seem to offer quite a lot of free space as well as their larger, paid plans. No more tears if/when your computer’s hard-drive dies! :)
