Technical Image File Requirements

"Technical Image File Requirements

The image should meet the following technical requirements:

File format should be JPEG/JPG, PNG, TIFF or GIF (JPG preferred).

Color should be RGB or CMYK (RGB is preferred because CMYK color sometimes shows color tonal variations when displayed on our website). See Image color section below.

Resolution should be at least 72 dpi.

Images should be 1,600 pixels or larger on the longest side. This minimum size requirement enables the zoom function on the website. Zoom has been proven to enhance sales.

Files cannot exceed 10,000 pixels on the longest side.

Most image editing software includes a function that indicates and lets you change the pixel dimensions. If you do not have image editing software, but the image will display in a browser, you may be able to right-click and view the image properties to indicate the pixel dimensions.

For the best results, submit your images with minimal or no compression. Resizing small images to be larger reduces image quality.

For JPEG images, save at the highest possible quality level and avoid resaving the image in JPEG format while editing the image. For TIFF files, do not apply any file compression. Remove layers from all images before submitting.

Our servers can only accept images that are formatted to our specifications. We reserve the right to reject images that do not meet our content standards, even if the images meet the technical formatting specifications." This is a quote from Amazon. To view online follow this link:
