Confused about image preview width on Graphic River

Hi, I’m getting ready to do my first upload on Graphic River but I’m confused about the image preview dimensions stated in the instructions. I’ve prepared preview images that are 590 pixels wide as stated but when I look at other already published items on the site their main preview images are displaying at about 740 pixels wide. Mine seem really small in comparison. What am I missing here?

Thanks in advance for any help and sorry if this is a daft question but I can’f find any explanation of the difference anywhere.


you just need to follow the Envato instructions ie.

590 pixel wide JPG preview of your file. The recommended height is 700 pixels. The maximum height is 8000 pixels. If you need more previews for your item, please consider uploading an optional Preview Image Set

most likely you have to check the dimension of the image in the description box instead of preview. as image can be added in the description and there is no size restriction for that.

Ok, I guess I’ll just follow the instructions as you say but it’s hard to visualise what is going to appear where without being able to preview the listing.

Thanks for your help.

Are you talking about this “Image Preview”, or the “Preview Image Set”?

The Image Preview must be a single image which is exactly 590px wide. This is what will appear as the main image for your item. I’ve checked multiple recently approved items and they’re all that width.

The Preview Image Set is an optional set of images which can be up to 900px wide. These will be found by either clicking on the Image Preview, or a button at the bottom of it. They can be anything related to your item which doesn’t fit in the main Image Preview, such as closeups, different angles, examples of it in use, etc.

I see what you mean. I’ve made my ‘Preview Image Set’ images at 900 x 900 as per the instructions:

(You can provide additional preview images. They must be JPGs no larger than 900x900px)

But I’m also seeing some really long images that scroll way longer than the length of the screen so I wasn’t sure what the 900 maximum pixel height was referring to - some images just don’t seem to fit the instructions from a newcomers point of view.

Thanks for taking the time to reply, I appreciate it.

Yea, the height doesn’t seem to be as important as the width in this case. I think it comes down to the reviewers discretion, if it makes sense to have an image taller than 900px then they’ll probably let it go, though some are larger than 900px wide and they get through anyway. Sometimes things get overlooked, but regardless you should always follow the guidelines/rules despite what you may see others doing.

I don’t feel so bad about being confused now. I was looking at some stuff and was thinking, that’s lovely but it’s HUGE!! and didn’t understand. As you say though, I’m probably better to behave myself and follow instructions seeing as I’m new here. Thanks again.
