The Amazon Guidelines Require your image to look professional!
But how can we accomplish that…
How can we be sure that our images meet the requirements of Amazon?
We try to make an overview what you should look at to be sure to meet the Amazon requirements.Technical specifications – Amazon Guidelines:
TIFF (.tif/.tiff), JPEG (.jpeg/.jpg), GIF (.gif) and PNG (.png) format
Image pixel dimensions of at least 1000 or larger in either height or width preferred
sRGB or CMYK color mode
File names 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)
Note: Spaces, dashes or additional characters in the filename will prevent your image from going online.Products displayed as the main image on the product detail page:Backgrounds
The main issue which pops up in most cases is the required pure white background.
Alot of customers which ask us to make their photos Amazon compliant already have a white looking background on their image.
But that doesn’t seem to be enough. The images really need to have a pure white background RGB 255 255 255.
Sometimes there is almost no difference you can see comparing the images we deliver to what we receive.Content
