Product image requirements

Every detail page in the Amazon store requires at least one product image, and we recommend you provide six images and one video. Good images make it easy for customers to evaluate the product. Images should be clear, informative, and attractive. The first image on the product detail page is the "MAIN" image and is shown to customers in search. The MAIN image must show only the product for sale on a white background, and the product should fill the image frame. Additional images should show the product in use or in an environment, different angles, and different features.

Important: You can find a list of Amazon's image standards specific to some product categories in the corresponding category Product page style guides. Note that in the case of overlaps or conflicts, the guidelines of each category takes precedence.

Image Issues

When you upload your image files, they are checked to confirm that they meet technical file requirements. Files failing to meet these requirements will not be uploaded to your listings. When images are received from multiple sellers, Amazon will favor the images that meets the style guides and standards.

If the images on your Amazon product listings do not comply with these product image requirements or violate the Selling Policies and Seller Code of Conduct, the product listings may be removed from search until a compliant image is provided.

Are you having problems uploading images? For more information and image examples, refer to Image Issues .
