Images appear on your website and GDS and OTA sites. Each image category is allowed one image so be sure that you have the best photos available for this function. The size of the image is very important and must meet size requirements. Before you upload any images, please prepare your images according to these guidelines.

Prepare your images

  • Image style: You can use any image and, In some cases, properties elect to make a collage of images. Collages can be used on your website. However, collage images are NOT allowed on GDS and OTA sites.  Images straight out of a digital camera are not optimized for the Internet – they are very high resolution for printing. The average image size should be between 1-3mg.
  • Image file format: Image files must be in .jpg, .gif, or png format, depending on the OTA channel you are targeting.  Airbnb and VRBO require the most quantity, and largest size, images.  Seek assistance via the Support Area if targeting one of these OTAs and you are having a hard time getting the image sizes correct.
  • Size requirements: Images must adhere to the minimum and maximum pixel size, noted next to each image, or they will not properly display properly. All of the main images must be Minimum 1024 x 680 pixels. Any file over 3840 x 2160 will be automatically resized. Use an image editor to resize your image, save as a .jpg (recommended format).  Tip: making all images the same size will insure best viewing. All thumbnails should conform to 100 x 100 min and 200 x 200 max.
  • Thumbnail Images - Thumbnail images are used on your website booking engine and in the Booking by Inquiry function. To enable the thumbnails to appear on your website go to Edit Booking Engine Settings and choose "yes" for Display Thumbnail images.
