Do I need to add photos when I'm registering?

When you’re registering your property on Booking.com, you’ll need to add at least one photo to get started.

After you’re fully registered and live on the site, you’ll be able to add the rest of your photos, pick a main photo, and add photos to your rooms and units.

What kind of photos can I add?

You can take photos of your property on your smartphone or digital camera. Just click on Upload to add it to your profile. Remember, the higher the resolution the better, and the minimum resolution we can show on the website is 840 x 460 pixels.

If you see a warning sign

There's an issue with one or more of your photos (click on the sign to read the message). The issue could be:

  • The resolution is too low.
  • The photo isn't the right size.
  • Duplicates: If you accidentally upload two of the same pictures, you'll see an error message. Delete either the newly uploaded photo (by selecting Dismiss on the error message), or the original if you were trying to replace it.

You can change your main photos by dragging and dropping your selected photo to be the first in the gallery. You can use the same action to rearrange the rest of your photos.

Tips for photo-taking

  • The larger and higher quality your photos are, the better.
  • Landscape shots show better on the website.
  • Use natural light (and avoid a flash).
  • Take photos from a steady height of around 5 ft.

TaggingAfter you register, you can label (or "tag") your photos on the Extranet to show which part of the property they belong to.
