Thumbnail Images

Thumbnails are the first images a customer sees on Adobe Stock. They should be a creative way to showcase your design.

Thumbnail Image Requirements

  • Must be named: Thumbnail.jpg
  • Colorspace: RGB
  • Width: 2048 px
  • Height: 1424 px
  • Resolution: minimum of 72 ppi

Useful Thumbnail Image Tips

  • Use background colors and shapes that will complement your template design
  • Experiment with different ways of cropping or laying out your work to highlight interesting focal points in your template
  • Remember that these images are a visual representation of your template for sale
  • Do not use "sales" or "marketing" text - these will reduce our ability to market your work in curated campaigns
  • Do not use images that contain IP violations (such as: real company logos, names, and products)
  • Do not use images that are cluttered or unreadable/blurry - these may devalue your template and make it less desirable for customers and marketability

Display Photos

  • You may only use display photos licensed from Adobe Stock or photos that you created/own (and can provide model and property releases if applicable)
  • Do not embed images in your template if they are licensed from Adobe Stock - the standard license will only allow you to use them as display photos in your thumbnail and preview files
  • If you include any display photos, they should match the style of the template design

To get started, download thumbnail starter files.

Preview Images

Preview images are shown when a customer clicks on the thumbnails for more details. They should be a representation of what are included within the templates.

  • Width: 2048 px

Useful Preview Image Tips

  • Show the depth and usefulness of your template - present either a variety of views or more details than your thumbnail image displays
  • Use this as an opportunity to visually show the different pages, screens, or options included in your template
  • Do not use "sales" or "marketing" text - these will reduce our ability to market your work in curated campaigns
  • Do not use images that contain IP violations (such as: real company logos, names, and products)
  • Do not use images that are cluttered or unreadable/blurry - these may devalue your template and make it less desirable for customers and marketability

Display Photos

  • You may only use display photos licensed from Adobe Stock or photos that you created/own (and can provide model and property releases if applicable)
  • Do not embed images in your template if they are licensed from Adobe Stock - the standard license will only allow you to use them as display photos in your thumbnail and preview files
