Image and video size recommendations

Impulse will look best when you provide the largest source images possible. The theme will load the right size for the right situation, making sure your site loads as quickly as possible. We recommend JPG over PNG files for better load times.

Products

Because the product page's desktop layout is adjustable, we recommend thinking about your photography mobile-first.

For most products a portrait (3:4 or 2:3) or square (1:1) aspect ratio will ensure that your product can be accurately shown in full detail on your store without the need to pinch or zoom.

Depending on your product shape, choose from one of the aspect ratios below:

Recommended aspect ratio 3:4
Minimum size 710px wide 532px tall
Recommended size 1420px wide 1065px tall
Recommended size (2x zoomable) 1840px wide 2130px tall


Heroes, Slideshows, Collection headers

Recommended aspect ratio 16:9
Minimum size 1440px wide 810px tall
Recommended size 2880px wide 1620px tall

Note: You can use the section height settings to crop the image for your situation

Mega menu

  • Mega menu images are pulled from your collection image and look best at an approximate aspect ratio of 17:8
