How to change the WooCommerce shop page image size

In WooCommerce, the shop page image size (category/catalog image sizes) has been removed. 

This means you can’t set a specific image size for your WooCommerce shop page, but you can still achieve the look you want. In the following steps, we’ll show you how.

To set the shop page image size in WooCommerce, take the following steps:

  1. From your WordPress dashboard, go to Appearance > Customize. This will pull up the Customize menu on the left and a preview of your site on the right.
  2. Scroll down the left-hand side menu and click WooCommerce, then Product Images.

  1. Here you’ll see some Thumbnail cropping settings. If you select 1:1, your images will be cropped into a square. You can customize the shape further if you click Custom and pick a different aspect ratio, i.e. 4:3 for a rectangle.

  1. Once you’re happy, click the blue Publish button at the top of the page.

All your product images should now be the same size and shape, but what if you want them to be larger or smaller? The best way to achieve this is to specify how many products you want to appear in each row of your shop page.

To do this, take the following steps:

  1. While you’re still on the customization screen, click the back arrow at the top, then click Product Catalogue.

  1. Scroll down until you see Products per row. Underneath this you should see a field with a number in it – this will likely be 4. If you raise this to 5, your product images will get smaller. If you lower it to 3, they will get bigger.

Updating the shop page image size this way may seem like you have less control, but WooCommerce does the heavy lifting for you. 

As soon as you make these changes, the product images on your site will be automatically updated and working perfectly. Changing size and adapting without you having to do a thing.

So now we’ve changed the WooCommerce shop page image size, let’s improve them further. 

Improve your WooCommerce shop page images

With your product images sized correctly on your shop page, it’s time to maximize their ability to make you sales.

To do this, you can add image swap and hover effects to your product images on the shop page. These will allow customers to hover over or click on your product images to see more. 

The effects can range from flipping the image to reveal another to zooming in, adding clickable thumbnails below the main image, and more.
