What are product image requirements for homeware?

A breakdown of homeware product image requirements for brands including do's and don'ts

Product images must be professional quality photographs. The more visual information available to the customer, the more likely a purchase will be made and returns will be avoided. Having more photos of products will improve conversion rates. 

Requirements for product listings

  • Compulsory: At least one cut out/pack shot front-facing on a completely white background (this should be the first image)
  • Highly recommended: Alternative angles, model shots, lifestyle

Please note: If no lifestyle shot is provided, we may no longer be able to include the product on certain sections of the site or on emails to customers.

  • Format: JPEG
  • File Size: less than 1 MB
  • Resolution: 72 dpi
