1. Review our Gig image requirements and recommendations to help make sure your Gig image is appealing, high-quality, and complies with Fiverr's Terms of Service and Fiverr's Community Standards.
To put it simply, if buyers find your Gig appealing, they are more likely to click through and take the time to review your service, since a great first impression is an important key to reeling them in.

2. Keep any text overlay concise and visually easy to read.
Less is more, especially when a picture is already worth 1,000 words.
If you want to add a text overlay, we recommend you use up to 10 words total—and keep in mind that using different words is more effective than repeating your title.

3. The use of third-party logos is permitted—but remember that less is more.
Similar to using text overlay, keep your Gig images clean and simple by not overcrowding them with too many logos.

4. If you want to upload a picture of yourself, make sure it’s high-quality, well-lit, and in focus.
Keep it genuine and visually appealing with a star-quality picture of yourself that aligns with Fiverr's Community Standards.

5. Exhibit your best works with “before and after” images or mockups to inspire ideas and show off your skills.
Your sample gallery will be a total of three images that showcase your best skills and work. Pick images that will help potential buyers understand your work quickly—and try to avoid overwhelming collages.

6. If you want to upload stock images/graphics, make sure you have the rights to use them, and that they’re high-quality and relevant to your Gig.
When it comes to images, we always recommend clean and visually pleasing images. For graphics, try using simple ones that aren’t overwhelming to the eye.
Remember: All Design categories require original work.

7. Focus on your main object if you want to combine text, graphics, and photos.
If you want to combine different forms of visual media, the final graphic of your Gig image should grasp your audience’s attention. Too much information or visuals can get overwhelming or confuse potential buyers when they glance at it.
