Image requirements

You will find a comprehensive list of all of Amazon’s image standards that are specific to your product category in the corresponding style guide. Read the style guide carefully and make sure images you upload to Amazon conform to these standards.

The following list of image standards is common to all product categories:

  • Images must accurately represent the product and show only the product that is for sale, with minimal or no propping.
  • Main images must have a pure white background (pure white blends in with the Amazon search and item detail pages—RGB values of 255, 255, 255).
  • Main images must show the actual product (not a graphic or illustration) and must NOT show excluded accessories, props that may confuse the customer, text that is not part of the product, or borders/logos/watermarks/inset images.
  • The product must fill 85% or more of the image (in its longest dimension).
  • Images should be 1,000 pixels or larger in either height or width. This minimum size requirement enables the zoom function on the website. Zoom has been proven to enhance sales. The smallest that your file can be is 500 pixels on the longest side. Consistently sized images are strongly recommended.
  • Amazon accepts JPEG (.jpg), TIFF (.tif), or PNG (.png) file formats (JPEG is preferred).
  • Product must not be on a mannequin.
