Image sizes

When it comes to image size, there are really two questions: how many pixels wide and how many megabytes? Answering these questions will help make sure that your images are both high quality and load fast.

But the answer isn't about exact measurements: what matters is that your images are above a minimum pixel width and below a maximum file size. Shopify and Cornerstone will handle the rest and automatically optimize and re-size your images for your visitor's screen or device.

For optimal image sizes, you can follow these two simple guidelines:

  1. Use a minimum pixel width of 2500 px for optimal quality on all screens.
  2. You don't need very large pixel widths for high quality images. In fact, larger pixel widths rarely makes a noticeable difference in quality.
    For small images, like logos, icons, and favicons, use smaller dimensions. Logos are ideally at minimum 150px by 150px, and small icons around 50px by 50px.
  3. Use a maximum file size of around 2 mb for optimal loading speed.
  4. You don't need to worry if images are a bit over or under the maximum file size.
