Image sizes and product alignment

HomeShopImage sizes and product alignment
Last updated: January 23, 2021

If products have featured images of different sizes the product grid items will have different heights and the inner content, such as title, price, and “Add to cart button” would be on different levels. The best solution is to upload images of equal size and proportion, however, considering a lot of products on the site, such a solution cannot be always applicable.

In order to settle the issue, navigate to Appearance – > Customize -> WooCommerce -> Product Image and find the size option for product page image as well as images in a grid:

  • Main image width – Image size used for the main image on single product pages. These images will remain uncropped. Image width used in demo sites are: 600px;
  • Thumbnail width – Image width used for products in the catalog, Image width for the catalog is 350px;

Thumbnail cropping checkboxes:

  • 1:1 – Images will be cropped into a square;
  • Custom – Images will be cropped to a custom aspect ratio, for example, 4:3 or there is the option to insert the aspect ratio
  • Uncropped – Images will display using the aspect ratio in which they were uploaded

Note: there is no required or recommended image size for a product or other purposes. The image should be big enough to have a nice view. Just for information we provide images sizes applied in our demo:

  • Product main image: width: 800px; height: 1200px;
  • Blog post: width: 1024px; height: 720px;
  • Page title background: 1200px; height: 400px;

In order to disable or enable a masonry grid in the Shop page as well as categories pages, there is an option in the Theme Settings > Product archive> Layout > Masonry Grid.

Different length of product titles also can shift the content and cause aligning the content on a different level, in order to fix this, there is the option to set one line-, two lines-, or no title limitation in the Theme Settings -> Product archive- > Product options- > Product title lines limit.
