Website Image and Video Size Guide

For your images on your website to look the best and load easy here are some size suggestions.

1. Dimensions

  • For images that are full width (such the banner images at the top of each page) - min suggested width is 1600px - height is less important to get exact, but at the width of 1600px, generally the height will be around 1060px
  • For images half or less of the webpage, 800px wide is acceptable.

2. Resolution

  • 72ppi is the industry standard for images on the web.

3. File size

  • This is critical for loading time. Despite the large dimensions of your image, you need the file size to be as small as possible.
  • After setting the dimensions and resolution, process the image through a compressor, to reduce the image as much as possible without compromising quality.
  • We suggest this free service at Tiny PNG

For videos:

  • Upload your video to vimeo for best results, and provide us the url
  • You can adjust setting to make the video private, but make sure it's allowed to be embedded anywhere
  • The best aspect ratio for the video is 16:9
  • Use a high quality file, as vimeo will compress the file for you
  • Avoid watermarks on videos
