A little cropping here and there can really improve your bedroom images.

Photographs posted to the listing pages need to all be taken in landscape format and retain their original aspect ratio.

But if you have your own online website / gallery / slideshow (and you should) then your bedroom photo’s could well benefit from letter-boxing.

Style magazines do this all the time.

Here’s how, just save a copy of the photograph, open your image handling software (Picasa, Photoshop, Picmonkey or whatever) and crop your bedroom photo top and bottom. Then save the resulting picture and use it in your own gallery / slideshow.

This works well because you crop out excessive amounts of ceiling and the end of the bed, both of which are not that appealing anyway, and you end up with more eye-catching detail to focus on.
