Someone said that: “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Indeed, nowadays, people are constantly attracted by visual stimuli, online and offline just in a few seconds. Using text can hardly gain readers’ attention because only 16% of them read a page word-for-word. While images let them capture the content in a blink of an eye.

Thanks to the products’ header images, your customers can get to know your brand identity, the features, and style of your products as soon as they access your web store. Your customers can view the product they want from a lot of angles and distances, thus they can make the right decisions. Therefore, by adding product images on Shopify, you will benefit from this.

For each product, you can add up to 250 images. With the different areas of your online shop theme, Shopify creates different sizes for a product image automatically. For instance, if customers want to see the product in detail, a large product image might be displayed on the product detail page. Otherwise, Shopify might display the compact version of the same image for the collection templates because it is not necessary to use a larger image at this moment.

So, how do you add a product image on Shopify? Let’s view our following instructions.
