My screen name is*****'s see how I can help you today.

Adding pictures here in this chat is FREE.

UPLOAD pictures of the item to include the front and all writing

on back/bottom (unless it is too heavy). I do not need more than three pictures.

For the best photo, set on white paper on a table if it is a small enough item

(never hold item in your hands).

Use the tool [located on either side of the area where you write to me]

to browse your device for a photo. Add one picture at a time.

Add a message before each photo (phot 1, photo2, photo 3).

I hope to give real-time responses but there are occasions where I take a bit longer.

I will always respond to you as quickly as possible.

No need to sit by the computer, you will get an email when I respond.

Best Regards,
