how to build a perfect Shopify shot list for your product launch

by | Nov 12, 2021

one of the first steps to launching your online store is knowing what content is allowed on each marketplace: Shopify has a set of content rules while Amazon has an entirely different list of requirements. without having a clear understanding of what types of photos – or even what size photo – is allowed – you could be wasting dollars and time.

Different from Amazon: Shopify has fewer rules for what is in your images and puts more emphasis on the more technical aspects of your images—like image size and quality. 

💡 want to know how to upload images to Shopify without overloading your site? here’s everything you need to know about optimizing Shopify images.

Shopify will allow users to upload up to 250 images per featured product. and all of those can be anything you deem appropriate and useful for your listing. so we say: make 👏 it 👏 fun.

so – what would a Shopify shot list look like? we’ve built our perfect Shopify shot list below that includes 6 images—including a playful action shot in the form of a GIF.

your hero image

a product-on-white photo of your product in full.

detailed product images on white

two different shots of your product from different angles. these help your customers see the key details they need to get a better understanding of the product.

product with a prop/ lifestyle images

two different shots of your product. this time we’ve added more context by combining lifestyle backgrounds. packaging. and additional angles. these add a new level of presentation and context to your product.

GIF action

a moving image! we ❤️ movement because it quickly grabs attention and adds a pop of fun to your store.
