Layout of pictures  

Another question! I just listed an item and when I previewed it through AW there were 3 pictures going across the top. But after I listed the auction, I went to eBay and that isn't how the auction looks....there are two pictures at the top next to each other and the other is below...am I doing something wrong? Why doesn't my preview show how the auction will look on eBay? Hope all this makes sense!

Are you still listings without the uploading images from AW2K to use the enlarged images at Ebay.. If so, there is no way to get the images to be in the template like you are use to without going to HTML listings and coding the images into the HTML.

Can you post a link to an affected listing so I can take a look?

Hi Judy!
I haven't tried using ebays pictures yet...I don't think I will....if there's something I list that needs alot of closeups, I'll just list through eBay...it doesn't happen that often!
I did find a listing to show you, but it ended, so I can't send you the link...my preview in AW2000 showed 3 pictures across the top under the title....when I looked at it on eBay....it showed two pics together at the top and one pic centered underneath....just wondering......
It only does this when I put the pictures at the top.....
I'll try to find an auction that's online and I'll send the link to you........
Thanks!

The images are too big to fit across the top of the template.. It works just like text (words),, if it doesn't fit on a single line it will wrap to the next line

Excellent!

Isn't it wonderful how a simple setting can fix something so quickly without having to do tons of work!

Re: Layout of pictures new [re: mouse]  

If your ebay listing ended recently, you should still be able to post the link so we can see how it looked when active.

If your AW template has images at the top, AND if the images are fairly large (say over 500 pixels horizontally), AND you insert more than a couple images, you may not get at eBay what you saw in your AW Preview. This is probably due to the fact that eBay reduced the "real estate" it allows us -- about a year ago, they reduced the size of the page area available for images and description.

Often, your AW Preview of your listing will show the images and description exactly as you want them, but once it's listed, the images get bumped down, and the description gets squeezed (you'll see "carriage returns" where you didn't put them).

You know I forgot about the eBay listing page being reduced down so the sidebar ads will show.. Geez ..
