Photo file size

The guidelines below will help you to choose the ideal picture size for your template.

  • Your photos may have a different size than below. If you decide to resize them, remember to keep the height and width ratio to avoid your pictures to stretch.
  • File size matters! We recommend using a maximum of 400KB per photo. For big background pictures, you can go up to 1MB.
    💡 Note: Usually .jpgs have smaller file sizes than .pngs. To compress your photos to a smaller file size but maintain the quality, you can use free online tools such as Compress JPEG
