Amazon product image requirements can seem daunting, but don’t worry, here we have compiled the full list of requirements.
In general, Amazon wants clear images that are true to the actual product and have minimal props. In other words, they just want to make sure customers get an accurate representation of the product they will receive. The primary image is called MAIN and is the most important photo in your gallery. You can provide up to 8 alternative images.
Check out this video for a quick overview:
MAIN Image Requirements:
- Must show the actual product (not a graphic or illustration)
- Must have a pure white background (pure white blends in with the Amazon search and item detail pages – RGB values of 255, 255, 255).
- Should be supplemented with additional images
General requirements for all photos:
- The product must fill 85% or more of the image.
- Not include logos or watermarks, and all props or accessories must be presented in a way that do not cause customer confusion.
- White background recommended, but not required for supplemental images.
Image size: 1000 pixels or larger in either height or width, as this will enable zoom function on the website (zoom has proven to enhance sales). The smallest your file should be is 500 pixels on the longest side.
Image format: Amazon accepts JPEG (.jpg), TIFF (.tif), or GIF (.gif) file formats. JPEG is preferred.
File Name: must consist of the product identifier (Amazon ASIN, 13-digit ISBN, EAN, JAN, or UPC) followed by a period and the appropriate file extension (Example: B000123456.jpg or 0237425673485.tif) – Spaces, dashes or additional characters in the filename are not accepted.
