Best practices: Google My Business image guidelines
Google has strict guidelines when creating or updating Google My Business listings, including uploading images, so we've created this guide to help ensure that your post publishes successfully to Google My Business and that the image looks great!
Important: Google My Business API doesn't support uploading videos or uploading multiple images.
Note: When posting images to Google My Business, the image for the Cover Page will not get updated. Also, any images uploaded will not appear in the "By Owner" photos area.
- Valid file types are .jpg, .jpeg, and .png
- Image ratio has to be 16:9 landscape - 1024 x 576 pixels (Recommended)
- Minimum size - 250 x 250 (Please note: this is quite a low-resolution size and may result in the image looking blurred when displayed in full rather than a thumbnail. For best results, we recommend a minimum size of 480 x 270)
- Maximum size - 2120 x 1192
