Next, Allen got together product images for each of the 50 items, and scanned catalogs and used a digital camera to capture items he didn't have in the catalogs.
Allen named each of the items with the product number so that matching the images to the
items would be simple. Make sure that you have permission to use the images from your distributor. All it takes is an e-mail or a phone call, and most suppliers are ecstatic that you're about to put them on the web. For example, this item was scanned as a jpeg with 20% compression, was about 50K in size, and was named RF3950.jpg.
