Why are good photos so important?

When running an online store, it's important to present the products in an appealing way. The product images play a crucial role in arousing interest and convincing potential customers to make a purchase. In this help article, we'll give you guidelines and tips for optimizing your product images.

We hope these guidelines and tips will help you optimize the product images on your online store. Clear and attractive images will help increase customer interest and improve sales results.

How big should my product images be?

The recommended size for product images is 1200 x 1200 pixels. Having an adequate resolution ensures that your images are clear and clear. This also allows you to zoom in on details without blurring the image. You can easily scale your images to the right size using the PicMonkey ( tool.

What are pixels?

Pixels are the metric used for images. An image consists of small color boxes, and the number of pixels determines the resolution and level of detail in the image. For example, the size 1200 x 1200 pixels means that the image is composed of 1200 color boxes both in height and width. The more pixels an image has, the more it can be enlarged without losing clarity.

My photos are different sizes, what can I do?

It is not necessary that the images have the same height and width, but it is important that they have the same aspect ratio. For example, all images can be 200 x 600 pixels, 600 x 400 pixels, or 750 x 1000 pixels. This will contribute to a more unified visual experience for customers.

How can you cut the images so that they are as tall as they are wide?

Most PCs have simple photo-editing programs that you can use to crop the pictures. On PCs, for example, you'll find Paint, and Mac users can use iPhoto. If you want more advanced image editing features, we can recommend programs like Canva and PicMonkey. These are user-friendly and make it easy to edit product images.

Does the size of the product image matter?

Yes, the image file size affects the loading time of your online store. A product image with a high file size may take longer to load, which can result in a poor user experience. In general, we recommend that the image size for your online store does not exceed a few hundred kilobytes (KB). Ideally, the image size should be somewhere between 30-100KB. You can optimize your product images by using tools like to reduce file size

My photos are getting small and blurry, what can I do?

To achieve sharp and clear images, it is important to have good quality original material. If the images you have available are small, it can be difficult to get a satisfactory result. We recommend contacting your wholesaler or supplier and asking for high-resolution images suitable for web use.

The images load slowly in the online store

We recommend the use of the JPEG format for product images as it offers good image quality with relatively small file size. PNG files are popular, but they take up more space and can thus increase loading time significantly. When saving your images for web use, you can use the "Save for Web" feature available in some image-editing programs such as Photoshop. This optimizes the images for web use and ensures faster loading in the browser of the customers.

How many product images can I upload?

You can upload up to 8 product images for each product on your online store. This gives you the opportunity to show different sides of the product and focus on important details. It is recommended to place the best product image first, as this is the image that will attract the attention of customers.
