A picture is worth a thousand words—except in e-commerce, where it can be worth considerably more.
High-resolution photography that shows a product to its best advantage (enabling website visitors to see all its distinguishing features), can sell the item at least as effectively as thousands of words. When it comes to running an e-commerce store, images are not optional.
Before buying, shoppers like to check out an image to get a visual sense of the product. And the image can make or break the sale.
