The Georgia Theme has some fancy image frames, which make product photos you upload look a lot nicer in your store than if a photo was just plonked on the page.
The trade-off for this is that you will need to either change your store setup, so it re-sizes or crops your images to landscape, or you will need to re-size your product images before you upload them to your store. Read on to find out more about each method.
To change the default image sizes that your Spiffy Store uses, you will need to do a couple of things… turn on advanced configuration options in your preferences, and then edit the product image sizes in your theme editor. Instructions on each step are below.
Resizing your images before you upload them gives you far greater control. Not everyone knows how to use these programs, which is why we have recommended the “Custom image sizes” option for most people.
Most people have some sort of image editing program that allows them to re-size or crop an image. There are plenty of free ones out there as well.
If you’ve got a handle on editing your own images… give it a go!
If you upload product images that are 800px wide x 600px high (landscape), then your photos should come out gorgeous.
