(Cross-posted from the Add-ons Blog.)
Last week, we pushed an update that enables add-on developers to use larger image sizes on their add-on listings.
We hadn’t updated our size limits for many years, so the images on listing pages are fairly small. The image viewer on the new website design scales the screenshots to fit the viewport, which makes these limitations even more obvious.
For example, look at this old listing:
The image view on the new site. Everything in this screenshot is old.
The image below better reflects how the magnified screenshot looks like on the browser tab.
After this fix, developers can upload images as large as they prefer. The maximum image display size on the site is 1280x800 pixels, which is what we recommend they upload. For other image sizes we recommend using the 1.6:1 ratio. If you want to update your listings to take advantage of larger image sizes, you might want to consider using these tips to give your listing a makeover to attract more users.
We look forward to beautiful, crisper images on add-on listing pages.
