Product Image Sizes

Product image quality and size are determined by your WooCommerce  settings, found under WooCommerce Settings . Click on the  Products tab , then click the Display link and scroll down to the Product Image Sizes section.

  • Catalog Images: 350 wide,hard crop checked
  • Single Product Image: 800 wide, hard crop checked
  • Product Thumbnail: 260 wide, hard crop checked

The height is really up to you, as is the hard crop. Checking Hard Crop will clip your images at the designated height and is best if you have a mixture of files with different heights. Unchecking Hard Crop will scale the image to width, but leave the original height/aspect ratio. For best results, use the same dimension for your uploaded images to achieve a clean uniform look.

All product images should be at least 570 pixels wide when uploaded to avoid pixelation and are resized automatically to the width of the template or widget displaying the image. If hard crop is checked, the image will be cropped to the dimensions of the template or widget without scaling. If hard crop is not checked, the image will be scaled by width and the height set to auto.

If you had existing content in WordPress prior to changing these settings or activating Handmade Two, download and run the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin.
