High-quality photos are a great way to showcase your space and help set guests’ expectations.

Here are a few tips for taking your own photos:

  • A few photos are better than none: Start by some of your own photos when you create a new listing—cell phone photos are fine.
  • Resolution matters: Take photos that are at least 1024 x 683px. When in doubt, a bigger photo is better.
  • Take your photos in landscape format: Vertical photos won’t showcase your space as well.
  • Set the scene: Clean up, remove clutter and pretend you’re preparing for your first guest.
  • Take photos during the day: Open the blinds and turn on the lights to brighten your space.
  • Highlight unique amenities: Guests love to be in spaces with character. Consider including photos of your space's exterior, too.
