You know from personal experience that your perception regarding the quality and reliability of a company is determined by what you see. If you see images that are plainly poor quality, you perceive that the company may not be legitimate, that they might not stand behind their product, or that they may not be in business very long. However, if you see a well-designed web site or catalog with good product pictures that help you determine if the product you see is what you want, then your perception of that company is that they are one that cares about their customers, they are a legitimate business of good standing, and that they will be around long into the future should you need them again.
