Image Use and Permissions
An image speaks a thousand words, so a good photo/image is essential to the overall success of your Wellbeing Umbrella Marketplace store and listings. It’s important that your products and services are presented clearly, and that the images used encourage potential customers to find out more and hopefully make a purchase.
Generally, listing images uploaded onto our Wellbeing Marketplace must be of the product item itself, appointment/service, or event (including therapy space and venue) and must not be a stock image. In certain circumstances, exceptions to using a stock image may be made to accommodate certain appointment/services where an original image is not possible.
When uploading images to our Wellbeing Marketplace, including stock images, as they are protected by copyright law, you confirm that you have all necessary rights, full permission, and licenses to use the images uploaded and are complying with our Terms Of Sellers and Acceptable use policy.
Recommended Image Specifications
Images uploaded to Wellbeing Umbrella are recommended to use the following image specifications and technical requirements:
- JPEG (.jpeg/.jpg)
- Store Banner image size (2000 x 700) pixels
- Store Logo image size (125 x 125) pixels

To figure out the size of your image in pixels:
Mac users – Find the image file in your Finder, right click the image and select Get Info. A pop-up window will open with the dimensions of your image displaying in the More Info section. The dimensions show the pixel height and width of your photo.
PC users – On a PC, right click on the image file, look at Properties, and then view the Summary or Details tab.
You can create the correct image size by inputting the dimensions into a graphic design platform, such as the Canva search bar. See example below:
