Adding images to the Gallery of a property

One of the important assets of  Apartment-rental websites, is a comprehensive photo Gallery that displays the product. Aside from the obvious appeal of a photo gallery in attracting a customer’s visual attention, you demonstrate to your customers that you offer a quality product by showing them, not just telling them with words. You also need to gain the trust of your clients by displaying authentic photos. So be smart about the choice of your photos and how well they represent your property.

Having said that, we have a few suggestions for you when adding and uploading photos in BookingDom:

1- Take photos in High Dynamic Range HDR for enhanced quality.

2- Try to include photos of all the rooms in the apartment to give your clients a better overview and to better showcase your property’s features.

3- Try to limit the number to a maximum of 20 photos per apartment.

4- Suggested image size is 1050 x 662  or anything under 1200 x 900 pixels. Keep in mind that your visitors don’t all have high speed internet; So if you want your images to load fast, keep the file size down. Recommended file size is around 400kb. Use reduced-size Jpeg images before uploading them.

5- In BookingDom you can select multiple photos using the ‘Select‘ button and upload them all at once using the ‘Upload‘ button.
