  3. Image Frame: At least 85% of the entire frame or background must be filled.
  4. Background Colour: It is common not just for a photo shoot but for uploading here to be WHITE! A transparent one might also do but having a colorful background is a strong NO.
  5. Image Colour Mode: The standard RGB or even CMYK can be used.

Some tips:

  • Try covering the entire frame.
  • Give a variety of images with different angles that could help the customer analyze the product (7-9 images).This also helps in allotting product priority on the page.
  • Avoid making a collage of your product in one image. Even while planning to sell a combo let there be a clear focus on each and every product. Go with one product at a time. Doing so would also prevent customer returns.
