How do I add product images?
Adding Product Images and Galleries
Images are measured and set in pixels, for example, 800 x 800 pixels. Note that the first number is the width and the second is height.
ALL IMAGES MUST BE IN A SQUARE FORMAT with a minimum of three images per product.
We recommend organising your images in a folder offline and keeping a backup in case you need them in the future or mistakenly alter one and wish to revert to the original.
Types of images
TODD+CREATES uses three types of Product Images for different locations and purposes:
Single Product Image is the largest image and refers to the main/featured image on your individual product details page.
Catalog Images are medium-sized images appearing in product loops, such as the Shop page, Product Category pages, Related Products, Up-sells, and Cross-sells.
Product thumbnails are the smallest images used in the Cart, Widgets, and (optional) Gallery thumbnails underneath the Single Product Image.
Main Product image
The Product Image is the main image for your product and is reused in different sizes across your store.
Select Set Product Image.
You can Select an existing image in your Media Library or Upload a new one.
Remove and Edit the product image if you’d like to change it, as needed.
Adding, removing and editing a product image is done in the same way as featured images for posts and pages.
How to add images to the Product Gallery:
Product galleries display all images attached to a product through the Product Gallery meta box.
Create a Product Gallery using the same method as adding a Product Image, but using the Product Gallery meta box.
Reorder images in the product gallery
Images in the product gallery can be re-ordered easily via drag and drop. Simply reorder your images by moving them around.
Remove images from the product gallery
To remove an image from the product gallery, hover over the image and click on the red “x.”
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the ideal image size to use on TODD+CREATES?
We recommend a minimum size of 800 x 800 pixels, width, and height. This renders well for the main/featured image, catalog image, and thumbnail image. Images that are larger are even better, especially if you’re selling items with great detail.
It’s possible to use images of lower resolution. However, your images are a key tool in selling and promoting your products and services online, so they should be of high quality.
My image is blurry!
This means that your image is too small for the website. Your original image needs to be a minimum of 800x800px, but preferably it will be 1080x1080px to make sure it looks great on your single product pages.
