How do you get the Images for your products?

Where do people get their product images from ? Digital camera with small home studio etc? Is there a guide to creating good images anywhere?

And is there a standard that should be followed for best results? certain file size for thumbnails etc

Sorry for such a basic question but its my first time setting up a shopping cart

depending what images your after most people will use existing pics from either manufacturer of from others web sites.

If you take your own shots then most of the time they are re edited in photoshop to get rid of the background etc.

It would depend on your budget.

The cheapest would be a light tent setup, you can get cheap light tents from ebay and then use 2 desk lamps.
