So, I like to shop second-hand online, and I've encountered many French sellers, and as such, how would one ask: "Do you have any photos wearing it?". It's probably a really basic question, but I can't find any examples. :)

Thanks in advance!

    Do you have any photos wearing it? can only mean: photos [in which you] are wearing it. Avez-vous des photos oú vous le portez? [le ou la]. Is that sentence the one you really mean as expressed in English for your online shopping?

    Une variante : avez-vous une photo où l'on voit ces vêtements portés ?

There are several ways to say that. En voici quelques unes.

  • En avez-vous des photos où on le voit porté par quelqu'un ?
  • Avez-vous des photos d'un mannequin en train de le porter ?
  • Est-ce que l'on peut voir en photo quelqu'un qui le porte ?
  • Vous n'auriez pas des photos qui montrent à quoi ça ressemble quand on le porte ?

  • 1) Do you have photos where we see someone wearing it? 2) Do you have photos of a model wearing it? 3) Is there a photo where someone is wearing it? 4) You wouldn't have any photos that show what it looks like when it's being worn. would you? In fact, the English as written by the OP can only mean what I put in my comment above....

  • @Lambie I couldn't put it any better in English; I supposed that the OP's sentence was less than ideal in expressing that idea, but that what was meant was in fact what I wrote in French. In fact there is no "vous" in the translation: the subject of "wearing" is "photo" (nonsense).

  • I don't think it is a good idea to say what someone means until they say it. Or to reinvent the wheel for them. Plus, you didn't translate what is actually a perfectly good sentence in English even if the OP actually meant something else.

  • @Lambie I don't believe it is correct English; how do you parse this sentence?

    To be honest these propositions are all very valid and convey the general idea. I guess when buying something to a stranger on the web, you don't care about who is actually wearing it, it's just a matter of seeing it on somebody rather than lying flat on a table... Now asking the same question to a friend of course you're interested in how this friend looks like in this outfit...
