Photography tips

Your photography should -

  • Use a digital camera (the latest smartphones also have good cameras).
  • Shoot landscape (horizontal) images only – these look best on Booking.com.
  • Photos must have a high resolution (at least 2048 x 1080 pixels).
  • Take pictures from a height of 100-160cm (3-5ft).
  • When photographing guests, please avoid showing their faces.

Composition

  • Make sure your subject (person, amenity) is in the centre of the image, whenever possible.
  • Photos on Booking.com can be cropped in various ways, so it’s always safest to keep your subject at the centre.
  • Try not to get too close to the subject. Allow enough distance for the subject to fit in the middle.
  • Remember that the image you see in your extranet gallery is a pre-cropped photo.

Please avoid road signs, parked cars (where possible), and no recognisable people passing by.
