One of the great features of the destination management system is the prominence it places on pictures. The beauty of the Island is one of our key selling points and images enable us to showcase different aspects of that in just a few short seconds. 
In this series of blogs we will provide you with top tips to showcase your property.  
For the tourist trade, images provide vital evidence in a consumer’s thought process that ultimately lead to the decision of whether or not to make a purchase. Experience shows that customers tend to follow the path of least resistance so if you can present your property in its best light, displaying all the most relevant information in the clearest way, this will increase your likelihood of a booking. 
We have compiled tops top tips over a series of blogs showcasing examples from the Island’s properties to help you portray your self-catering property, guest-house, B&B or other visitor accommodation in the best possible light. 
The display resolutions of laptops, desktops and tablets are improving all the time. The result is that an image that looked fine on a 10 year old monitor may now obviously lack detail and clarity when viewed on an up to date device. It is also true, that the better quality an image was when it was shot, the better quality it will look when it is resized for website use. 
New cameras now also tend to be capable of correctly exposing a wider range of light levels across a single shot. This means a shot that 10 years ago might have appeared overexposed and washed out in one area and underexposed in another, will now have a more balanced exposure showing detail in the image at both extremes. 
While there are other things that have an effect on image quality, it makes your job easier if you use a camera that can shoot at a good resolution. Look for a camera that can shoot eight megapixels as a minimum and make sure it is set shoot at full resolution. 
Practice with your camera to make sure you are fully aware of its functions. If possible, try to shoot in RAW. This allows for more effective processing once you have finished shooting.
