The image should meet the following technical requirements:
Most image editing software includes a function that indicates and lets you change the pixel dimensions. If you do not have image editing software but the image will display in a browser, you may be able to right-click and view the image properties to indicate the pixel dimensions.
For the best results, submit your images with minimal or no compression. Resizing small images to be larger reduces image quality.
For JPEG images, save at the highest possible quality level and avoid resaving the image in JPEG format while editing the image. For TIFF files, do not apply any file compression. Remove layers from all images before submitting.
Our servers can only accept images that are formatted to our specifications. We reserve the right to reject images that do not meet our content standards, even if the images meet the technical formatting specifications.
|We do NOT accept images submitted in these formats||We do NOT accept file formats that are proprietary to a specific software application, including, but not limited to|
Our customers use a wide variety of displays that render colours differently. It is likely that colours you see on your screen are different from what someone else sees. To ensure your images display accurately, follow our image colour specifications.
|RGB||RGB is the colour mode native to the web and most colour screen displays. RGB stands for red, green and blue. These three colours displayed at varying levels of intensity create over 16 million colours. The RGB colour space is used for product images.||Yes|
|CMYK||CMYK tends to show colour tonal variations when displayed on a website, since this colour mode is designated for printed materials, not web display.||Not preferred. Use RGB instead.|
|Grayscale||Grayscale is a colour mode that is used both in print and on the web. The grayscale colour space uses 256 shades of grey to create images.||The grayscale colour mode can be used for images on Amazon.com only when it accurately depicts the colour of grey or silver metal products.|
ICC colour profiles are a type of data stored in an image to indicate how electronic equipment interprets colour data. These are useful in the printing industry to ensure colour accuracy, but are not commonly used for web display.
Images which rely on a specific colour profile for accurate colour display may not appear as intended on Amazon.
To ensure colour accuracy, submit files that use the RGB or working colour format. To convert your image profile to RGB or Working RGB, you must have image editing software that has that capability.
