Digital images are an important marketing tool for real estate professionals. They are used to advertise properties for sale on websites, smartphones or various other types of electronic displays. Digital images are taken with a camera that does not require any film. Pictures of a house or piece of property are captured instantly, and can be emailed or sent to a client's smartphone seconds after they are taken. Real estate brokers who list homes in a print magazine that advertises homes for sale can transmit pictures of the property and clear images of the exterior and interior of the house. In addition to transmitting the digital images, a description of the property and features can accompany the pictures. Digital pictures are easy to sort and identify. Every image has a date and time associated with it, and each picture can be tagged with an appropriate name or description.
