Fiverr loves good quality photos. Your gig image is one of those essential factors that help buyers decide whether or not to place an order on your gig. Dull and low-quality Fiverr gig images make a poor impression on buyers and they think that you are selling unreliable services.

This 9th article of FREE Fiverr Series will provide you a detailed guideline to create gig images that fit the quality standards of Fiverr. We’ll also discuss how you can find the best Fiverr gig image templates to build your gig gallery.

6 Things to Consider While Creating Fiver Gig Images in 2020

1. Use the Best Fiverr Gig Image Size

Before designing an image for your Fiverr gig, make sure you are using the right size for it. Don’t go for too large or too small images.

The minimum size for a Fiverr gig image in 2020 is 550 pixels by 370 pixels. This means that the minimum width should be 550 pixels and the minimum height should be 370 pixels.

2. Don’t Overuse Text

It’s not a good idea to add a lot of text on your image. Remember, less is more. Keep your text simple and precise. Use the right fonts to increase the readability. It’s best to use San Serif fonts for gig images. Besides that, avoid unprofessional colors in the images. Select a professional color theme and design your gig images around that theme.

3. Don’t Copy Other Seller’s Gig Images

Never steal or copy someone else’s gig image and use it as your own. This is against the rules of Fiverr and you may get blocked for doing this. Besides that, it also affects your Fiverr gig rankings. Always create your own images with high-resolution to get orders on your gig.

4. Avoid Clickbait Images

Clickbait is basically a false marketing practice where you mislead buyers to get clicks on your gig. Using clickbait gig images can lead to a permanently suspended Fiverr account or banned gig. So, avoid this practice because it will not generate long-term results if you are trying to establish a great portfolio on Fiverr.

5. No Irrelevant Images

Your gig image should be in accordance with the service you are offering in the gig. Irrelevant gig images not only confuse buyers but also reduce your chances of generating sales.

6. Don’t Use Badges in Gig Images

No matter if you are a top-rated seller or a verified-pro, Fiverr does not allow to display any kind of badge or certificate in your gig image. Avoid all types of badges while creating a Fiverr gig image. It is strictly against the TOCs of Fiverr.

Important Points to Cover in a Gig Image 

Here are the three points that you should target in your gig image to get noticed:

  1. The end result that customer wants
  2. Time duration to complete the work
  3. Common objections related to the service

You don’t really need to add all of the above things all the time while creating a gig image. Here’s how you can use them wisely in a gig image:

  • Use only the first point (end result) in your gig image.
  • Make use of the first and second point (end result + time duration) for your Fiverr gig image.
  • Use all three points (end result + time duration + objections) to create an impressive gig image.

I have a really good tool for you that you can use to create your Fiverr gig images offline.

Picasa has always been my go-to image editing software since my teenage years. It is basically a Google Product that helps you to organize, edit, and upload photos. What I like the most about Picasa is that it’s free and very easy-to-use.
