Image Dimensions

In order to perfect the look and feel of your shop, we want to provide recommended image dimensions for all of your shop’s images. While you’re welcome to upload other image sizes and aspect ratios, we guarantee that these sizes will make your shop look great.

Just so you know, the measurements on this page are in pixels, and they are ordered  width x height. Unless your customers use high DPI displays, Capital scales down the images so they fit perfectly in your customers' browser window.


For your logo image, we recommend an image  480px x 84px.

The maximum logo image size is  600px x 84px.

You can upload a logo from the Header settings.

Departments navigation image

For the departments navigation menu image, we recommend a super-wide image of  1288px x 250px. We think a marketing banner or a transparent version of your store’s logo would look great in this area.

You can upload a departments navigation image from the Navigation settings.

Image gallery home page section

Image galleries let you display a slideshow-like block with links to your different departments, or any other page of your shop. By default, each image is a landscape-style item, but you can change any image into a portrait item. Portrait items take up the space required for  two landscape items. Here’s a layout example with one portrait and two landscape items configured:

One portrait image and two landscape images items

You can configure up to  eight departments for each departments section on your home page. Up to four display at one time and customers can use navigational arrows to scroll to the remaining departments.

For more detailed setup instructions, see the Image Gallery documentation page.


Here are our recommended image dimensions for the Image Gallery :

  • Portrait item: 940px x 1268px
  • Landscape item: 940px x 614px
  • Single landscape item: 1920px x 626px
  • Single portrait item: 1920px x 1252px

Blog post featured image

For blog posts, we recommend that you use large images, at least  1280px wide. It does not matter how tall the image is, although landscape images look good consistently.

Product images

Product images are set up using the Shopify admin area when you add or edit products. For Capital, you can configure the aspect ratio for product images from the Product item settings. 

Depending on which aspect ratio you have configured, we recommend different sizes for your product images.

For best results, we recommend that you use images that are the same size for all of your products.

  • Natural: 880px wide, no recommended height.
  • 3:2: 880px x 586px.
  • 1:1: 880px x 880px.
  • 2:3: 880px x 1320px.

If you are unfamiliar with how image aspect ratios work, here is a diagram showing what 3:2, 1:1, and 2:3 images look like:

Password page background image

If your store isn’t open yet, you can stop customers from accessing it by setting up a password-protected storefront. See the Password page page for more information about this. When the password page is set up, you can configure a background image to be displayed on that page.

We recommend that your password page background image be  1920px x 1252px.
