Seller FAQ

How do I save photos so they are web-ready?

Photos can be saved with any photo image editing software with the following specifications:

Image Size: 640x480 pixels or 6x4 inches

Resolution: 72

Image Type .jpg

Photo file names should correspond to the lot number they belong to, i.e., Lot 1 in the sale order has 3 photos. They should be saved 1.jpg, 1a.jpg, 1b.jpg. In this case, 1.jpg is usually a profile shot, 1a.jpg is a butt shot, and 1b.jpg is a shot of your choice, perhaps of progeny, full sibs, etc. Each lot can have up to 5 photos.
