Product Image Info

February 04, 2016

We recommend that you chose one shape for all your product images on your site.  Squares work best for most things. Rectangles (portrait) works well for clothing if your using a model or mannequin. Rectangles (landscape) works well if your have large items like sofas.

*Note: Many stores sell a variety of items, clothing, jewelry, furniture etc., but still use only one shape for all their images. Below are a few examples.

Example Sites:

  • Sundance uses a square for all images.
  • Anthropologie uses a rectangle (portrait) on all images. 
  • OneKingsLane uses a rectangle (landscape) on all images.

2048 x 2048 is the largest Shopify allows for product images. Best to upload the largest. Shopify will re-size the master image to the sizes listed below.
