What happens if my image says “low quality” when uploading?Updated a year ago

If larger sizes have a warning symbol after you upload your image, it is most likely caused by the image's quality. The website automatically disables larger sizes if the uploaded file is of lower quality.

You can check the specs of your file by right-clicking on the image and selecting "Properties."

Minimum guidelines:

  • More than 1800 x 1800 pixels
  • DPI (Dots per inch) between 180 and 300
  • Limit the use of zoom. Zooming takes resolution away from the image.

If your image does not meet the minimum requirements, there are a few ways to enhance it. Please refer to our "Minimum requirements for custom images" article for more details. Please be informed that enhancing of a low-quality image will only multiply pixels while the quality will be similar. The resize is already part of the process of our designers hence we strongly recommend using an image that has a high resolution.
