  2. Product images:
  3. Cover image: The cover image is long and horizontal. The optimal size is 1360 X 300 pixels. 
  4. Brand Video: Your featured video on your brand profile will automatically resize for you, but for ideal layout, videos should be landscape and high resolution. 

All picture files must be PNG, GIF, or JPG.

Video files should be .mpg

OPTIMIZE YOUR PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY:


Logos

This image is used in several places throughout Hubventory, including your profile, on our homepages as featured, new or suggested brands and in marketing emails. It’s often a retailer’s first impression of your brand, so make sure your logo image is clear, of high resolution, and is easy to recognize.  

Product Photography 

These images are key! Retailers looking to buy exciting new products, and your first impression matters. So use multiple high-quality, high-resolution, centered pictures with a white background to make your product stand out.


Product Image Requirements: 

  • High-resolution: at least 1825×1825 pixels
  • Image Shape:  square or vertical rectangle 
  • Simple Background: the focus should be on the product


Your product images should be compelling. These photos represent the majority of your shop. Keep them consistent and clear.

Here are some examples of great product images:

Cover Images

Your cover photo is the main image featured at the top of your brand’s shop page. It can feature a collection of product photography or one photo that really represents your brand well.

Cover Image Requirements: 

  • No logos or text
  • No products with inappropriate language
  • No nudity


Your cover image helps set the tone for your shop page. Use a photo that represents your brand’s best-selling category and overall brand aesthetic. Cover images that feature several products in one photo, or display the product(s) in use, are better than single product shots.

Brand Video

Your featured video on your brand profile will automatically resize for you, but for an ideal layout, videos should be landscape and high resolution. 

When retailers are shopping for wholesale online, it is important that they can understand brands’ personalities and feel, which can be communicated through great branded video content and photography.

Don’t be afraid to show off your brand’s personality or add a fun music track. What is going to accurately represent your brand and make retailers want to shop with you?
