When you are putting something up for sale on eBay, it’s all about how good that photo looks. We have shown you how to take great images when selling stuff on the web, but one Redditor suggests a new trick: include a simple Crayola crayon in the photo.

Ideally, the crayon you include should be of a similar colour to the item, and have its label facing the camera.
I say Crayola, specifically, because unlike some other brands (especially generic), Crayola brand crayons are a well known standard size, and the colours are very standardised as well. A brick red in Maine bought today is the same size and tint/hue as a brick red bought in Oregon four years ago.
