Gig Images: General Gig image guidelines

General guidelines

Note: Guidelines are also applied to videos and audio thumbnails. If you need guidance when creating your Gig image, our dedicated Gig image experts are here to help.
  1.  Image size guide- The recommended image size is 1280 x 769 px, 72 Dots Per Inch (DPI).

    • Minimum: 712 x 430 px

    • Maximum 4000 x 2416 px

  1. Resizing images- If you’re using a Mac, use Preview. On Windows, use Photo Gallery. Other free tools are available online.  Need additional help? Reach out to our Gig image experts.

  2. Image quality- Use sharp, clear, high-resolution, and eye-catching images that stand out to potential buyers. Avoid blurry, pixelated, stretched, or “squished” images. 

  3. Number of images per Gig- Keeping it simple is best, and for that reason, you can upload more than one image (up to three).

  4. Image usage and commercial rights -Only use images that you have permission to use.

  5. Be accurate and don’t use “clickbait”- Clickbait or misleading content can be frustrating for potential buyers, and even lower your ranking in search results and damage a Gig’s reputation. Be sure to only use images that accurately represent your service and directly relate to the service provided.

  6. Relevancy- Gig images must directly relate to the service provided—random images can damage a Gig's reputation and lower editorial pick possibility. 

  7. Use as little text as possible - Remember, keep it simple. Avoid repeating text that’s already somewhere else in your Gig card.

  8. Make your Gig stand out-  If you have more than one Gig, choose unique images and texts for each image. 

  9. Name your image file- Make your Gig easier to find by using a file name that’s clear and relevant. This can be valuable for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) so your Gig can be found in search results.  

  10. Be authentic and ethical- If you’d like to use a photo of yourself, feel free to do so, we encourage authenticity. Make sure any image of yourself is clear, displays your face, and follows Fiverr’s standards. Learn more with Fiverr’s Community Standards.

  11. Objectionable content is not accepted- Ex. Adult material or hate speech. Learn more with Fiverr’s Community Standards.

  12. Don’t use Fiverr logos or badges- Fiverr automatically includes badges for you, so there is no need to add additional Fiverr logos, rating, seller level, or any other badges to your Gigs—this will flag your Gig and will be removed. 

  13. Never share contact information- Do not use any private information on your Gig images—including contact information. This applies to both individual and business information of you or the client, and all communication should take place within Fiverr.

  14. Compliance - Gig images must meet Fiverr's Terms of Service and Community Standards. If your Gig doesn’t meet the policies’ standards (ex. offensive content, adult material, hate speech, etc.), it will be removed
