Need advice on best image sizes for Amazon
29 Sep 2015
Can someone with experience selling on Amazon tell me what size they use for product images?

When I look at Amazon guidelines I see conflicting information for the size of the longest dimension (either width or height):

Requirements for the US Site
Per US Amazon Guidelines.

Minimum - 1000 pixels (some places show this as 1001)
Maximum - 2100 pixels

Requirements for the UK Site
The minimums are much larger per UK Amazon Guidelines

Minimum - 1280 pixels
Maximum - 2560 pixels

I am asking because I want to add a Resize preset to my photo editing app. It will have two settings - Amazon Minimum and Amazon Recommended.

I don't want to have different sets for UK and US, so Minimum 1280 works for both, but what size make sense for Recommended?

What size do you use?

Thanks!

@Pixby

Its actually 500 x 500 the minimum if you read carefully. Lol But 1000 x 1000 is somewhat close to true HD haha

But for the UK it seems like you are forced to 1280. Seems silly to not have a universal standard.

Make the size of your liking and test it. If US and UK accept then go with the size of your option.
