Hi. How can we help?

eCom image & platform limits

Use this article as a reference to determine the limits of the Lightspeed eCom platform. The limits have been organized into two parts: Image limits and the remaining limits to the rest of the platform itself.


In Lightspeed eCom, themes are designed to ensure an image is always optimized on the webpage, regardless of the original size of image uploaded. However, when overriding the theme code, the platform limits should be considered. Images in Lightspeed eCom have the following limits:

Products – number of images per product

Depending on eCom version:

  • eCom standalone: 10
  • Omnichannel: 12

Max image size 25 MB

It's recommended you balance the size of your images with your page load speed and keep images less than 1 MB. Smaller images will greatly improve your website's load speed.
Max image dimensions Images up to 5128px x 5128px will be stored unscaled. Images with dimensions larger than this will be scaled to 5128px on the largest dimension's edge.
Supported image formats
  • .jpg
  • .jpeg
  • .png
  • .gif
  • .webp
Recommended color space for images

Any RGB color space.

Images with a CMYK color space noticeably diminish in color when uploaded to eCom.

Platform Limits

Some limits can be increased, depending on your eCom store and how it's setup. Contact your account manager, or our sales team. For more information about contacting us, click here.
