If its one item a scan works, if it is a group of items then a photo (that is of course if you only use one image)

I like whatever provides a detailed image of the item for sale.  Usually scans work better but high-res picture work well too.  It seems to be getting less common for people to have scanners though.

I use scans because I think it details condition/quality much better than a picture taken a few feet away. I wish more sellers would use them.

I prefer scans, if feasible, but photos are just as good sometimes. Scans can be more harmful than photos, so, of some stuff, I just prefer multiple pictures, taken at different angles, and of more than just the cover, back, and a random page... I want to see the thing. Course, I also ignore the pictures, too, cause they are often stock images... I hate that.

Given his recent posting in Classifieds, I'd say he's mercenary_roadie on eBay. ;)

Scan, of both front and back so I can tell what print run it's likely to be
