# Upload limitations

We would suggest you upload images or videos of a maximum size of 32 MB. Images up to 32 MB will appear correctly anywhere in the system. However, the optimal image size is anything up to 1 MB or a maximum width of 2000 pixels. Try not to exceed the width of 4000 pixels.

Here is why:

  • The smaller images take less time to upload.
  • The smaller images take less loading time for your site visitors.
  • The smaller images don’t take up unnecessary space.
  • The smaller images are easy for search engines to index.

Note

When uploading images for product categories, all product categories must contain images of the same dimensions. We recommend the image size of 400 x 300 px.

When uploading images for Parallax and Background image with text box sections, the image names must be written as a string, i.e. without spaces.

# Compressing images

DG1 automatically compresses uploaded images to optimize page load times. Compressing an image simply means the size of the file is reduced to allow for faster page loading.

Note

Please make sure your images are in RGB color mode and not in CMYK.
