Let's face it - estimating the size of something from an online photo is pretty difficult. Who hasn't bought something online and then noted that 'it's smaller/bigger than I thought it would be'? I've often done that with jewellery myself.
I've had a couple of requests recently from potential customers asking to see necklaces modelled in real life. Not surprisingly, considering my ugly mug (!) they didn't make a purchase after seeing the modelled photos. And I really hate having my photo taken, so that's not a viable option.
I always try to give measurements in my descriptions, both in centimetres and inches but not sure this helps much?
So I've been trying different ways to show dimensions in photos. Not sure if any of these are useful, or whether some are misleading, so your views are critical here, please.
Why a golf ball? I read somewhere that this was one of the only objects which is a consistent size across the world! Does it speak to you? Not me. I wouldn't have been able to tell you the size of a golf ball before the dog obligingly picked this one up for me a few months ago (don't worry, it's been extensively washed since ;-))
Your thoughts, please!
