Taking great photos of your listing

Give guests a sense of what to expect with captivating photos of your space—including photos of the inside, outside, and neighbourhood around your listing.

How to get the best photos:

  • Set the scene: For a spacious and inviting look, make sure the space is clean and free of clutter.
  • Daylight works best: Open the blinds and turn on the lights to brighten your space.
  • Use landscape format: Photos in search results are all displayed in landscape—vertical photos won’t showcase your space as well.
  • Upload the right resolution: Use photos that are at least 1024 px x 683 px. When in doubt, a bigger photo is better.
  • Show off unique amenities: Guests love to stay in spaces with character, so call attention to details like a fireplace, artwork, or backyard barbeque.
  • Highlight accessibility features: Emphasize things that are helpful to guests with limited mobility, such as wide doorways, step-free floors, and grab rails. Learn more about which features qualify and the best way to photograph them.
