What URLs can I specify in VerifyAddItem to obtain the appropriate fees for EPS images?

When calling VerifyAddItem to validate listings which support EPS

When calling VerifyAddItem to validate listings which support EPS (eBay Picture Services) images, developer may not be in possession of the EPS image URLs for the item. In this particular case, the VerifyAddItem function can be supplied with 'dummy' EPS URLs which will generate the appropriate listings fees.

To specify 'dummy' EPS Picture URLs, developers can utilize the following naming conventions for the Picture URL(s) input paramter. Please do note that if specifing two or more 'dummy' EPS Picture URLs, the URLs supplied must be unique.

Further information on Images in Listings can be found in the Documentation at: http://developer.ebay.com/devzone/guides/ebayfeatures/Development/Pictures-Intro.html
