Spiffing up your Etsy storefront is no different than getting the front of your brick-and-mortar store to look inviting. The goal is the same, too: to entice customers to come on in and browse the goods. Since quality images are a must on Etsy, it's important that you know the correct Etsy photo sizes. This'll help you create effective visuals for your store, like shop banners, product photos, receipts, icons, and more.
In this tutorial, we'll cover the most recent Esty photo size requirements and quick ways to upload — and update — your Etsy shop with ease.

And if you're just starting out — congrats! But we know you also might be confused about the differences between these choices. Here's a quick breakdown of each Etsy photo option.
Shop banners are one of the most important assets to have appropriately sized on your website, as they're the first thing consumers see. Especially if you track traffic on your site, poorly sized images can increase your bounce rate and impact other important metrics.
First impressions are everything, so keep this in mind when choosing a mini or big Etsy shop banner.

Your Etsy profile photo distinguishes you as the shop owner and is therefore extremely important to size right. No one wants an enlarged face or something microscopic that's hard to see.
Your profile pic option lives under "Shop owner" and next to your name on the shop site, so make it a good one! Say cheese.
Order receipt banner
Etsy order receipt banners are equivalent to mini shop banners with one significant difference. Instead of appearing on the shop site, this mini shop banner is designed specifically for packing slips and order receipts.
Etsy carousel banners are an option for Etsy plus members. This feature lets you add four more images than you'd otherwise be allowed. This can help shoppers better understand products and experience them from different angles. You can also link these banners to different products or sections.
Similar to the carousel banner, Esty collage banners are for Etsy plus members. They offer between two-four additional pics for consumers to engage with. If you're selling intricate products that require explanation or additional photos, this option's for you.
Your Etsy shop icon is essentially your logo for the business. This is your opportunity to build brand recognition and introduce your vibe by way of brand color palettes, fonts, graphics, and other stylistic choices.
Always consider a first-time customer and what they need to see for your brand to stick. Plaster that logo with pride as many places as you can to build customer loyalty.

Listing images are exactly what they sound like! They're the image associated with your product listing and are therefore critical to size correctly. If consumers don't know what they're looking at, sales will reflect it.
Team logos are made for Etsy teams so you can connect with other sellers. Consider it a community or network that lets you grow, learn, and evolve with other sellers online. Having a distinct and appropriately sized team logo can inform the quality and size of your support group.
The thumbnail is the image that buyers see in your shop home, on google searches, and other places on the site. For that reason, it's critical to have the right size thumbnail to maintain consistent branding.
Best practices for Etsy photo size limits
Supported file types: JPG, PNG, and GIFs. Etsy does not support animated GIFs or transparent PNGs. When downloading your image in PicMonkey, simply choose JPG or PNG for your preferred option.
File size: Recommended under 1MB (otherwise you might encounter upload problems).
Color profile: Convert images to sRGB color profile so that colors remain the same after upload (don't worry — all images made in PicMonkey export as sRGB).
Optimal listing images:
Your first photo in a listing should be landscape orientation or square.
Upload similarly shaped listing photos for a better browsing experience.
If an image is uploading to Etsy sideways, try editing it beforehand or retake the photo with your camera in a new position.
