How to fix blurry photos in WooCommerce

How to fix blurry photos in WooCommerce

Many people who have bought some of my WordPress themes ask me How to fix blurry photos in WooCommerce so I´ve decided to make a really fast instructional tutorial.

If you’re having issues with your WooCommerce product images being too small, blurry or too big, this may be because of the image you’ve uploaded do not match your WooCommerce product image settings.

 

 

  1. First of all you should enter site admin panel and navigate to Appearance > Customizer  in your WordPress dashboard.

2. Click on the WooCommerce option and select select Product Images.

3. Under the Products Images tab you should see the Display option, which defines the product images dimensions Width X Height in pixels. We need to change them.

Main Image Width  is for your images on the shop page and for widgets.
Thumbnail with Single is for your images on the single product pages.
Thumbnail cropping 

4. The minimum suggest width for main images is 600px and > 300 px for thumbnails

5. Once you have made your changes to the image dimensions, click ‘Save Changes’.

6. If you change the image dimensions after you have uploaded product images, you will need to download and run the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin just once Regenerate Thumbnails – this is to ensure that all affected images are resized to match the new dimensions.

The end!

That concludes my tutorial for fixing the blurry product images on your WooCommerce shop.

5 free premade logo designs for your website

5 free premade logo designs for your website

Today I want to share you 5 free premade logo designs for your website.

When you start a website, you´ve likely to be running low on cash and wouldn’t be wise to spend your savings on purchasing a custom logo so I want you help you with this crucial step.

I believe in this case, the best thing is use pre-made logos tend to be simplier and cheaper since they’re not customized.

Well no, they’re not unique.

But, being honest, unless your audience are graphic designers anyone will notice your logo is premade.

A logo works much like your name. Your logo is the face of your brand. As you build brand awareness with logo-accompanied experiences, readers will begin to make valuable associations between your logo and your brand.

I love simple logo design , it does not equate to a simplistic business model or brand message; to the contrary, it indicates a keen awareness of a logo’s purpose and your ideal clients’ needs. A logo that is complicated in design can make it difficult for people to create those associations.

I have the pleasure to present these 5 free premade logo designs for your website:

Everything can be customized with your own text, colors, textures and can even change the font if needed. Just a basic knowledge of Photoshop or Illustrator is more than enough to edit any logo.

Enjoy! xoxo
