Product Images

Products: Product image quality and size are determined by your WooCommerce Catalog settings, found under WooCommerceSettings on the Product tab . Enter the following for Dynamo:

  • Catalog Images: 380 width
  • Single: 500 width
  • Product: 350 width

The height is up to you depending on the kind of product images you are using, as well as the crop. Hard crop will crop the bottom off your image at the height you set. Unchecking hard crop will scale the image to the width, regardless of the height. We recommend using the same height for all image files in your shop to get the cleanest look. Our demo is configured like this:

  • Catalog Images: 380 width and 380 height, hard crop checked
  • Single: 500 width and 1000 height, no hard crop – allows the single product page to display the whole product image regardless of the file’s height dimension.
  • Product: 350 width and 350 height, hard crop checked

If you had content in WooCommerce or WordPress previous to activating Dynamo, you must run the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin to re-create your theme images properly.
