For certain types of products photos are the best way to convey the important details to the customers. I posted a series of photos showing a camping trailer inside and out. (See that post here). Without any words at all, the potential customer can easily detrermine if the trailer is what they are looking for. Another really good way to show this same trailer for sale would be using a short video.
These let the customer see and imagine the item in their own lives. They can see qualities like cleanliness and condition that can’t adequately be expressed using words alone.
