Creating a Product Image (Image Size Template)

  1. Open the Lama Product Template in Photoshop.
  2. Drag the desired product image into the template.
  3. Ensure that the top and bottom of the product image are on the margins by re-sizing from the corners (hold shift while you do so to keep the image in proportion), this will make all images aligned for the store page. (If you cannot see the margins in Photoshop, go to View, Show, then Guides).
  4. Once the product image is the correct size inside the margins, you need to center it. Firstly select the "Rectangular Marquee Tool" (or press M), and drag the tool over the entire image (or press Command+A). Then select the "Move Tool" (or press V) and click "Align horizontal centers".
  5. Go to file and select "Save For Web", save the image as a JPEG and set quality to "Very High".
  6. The image is then ready to be used as a product image.
