The power of high quality photos

Photos have an important role in making sure that a potential guest actually books. You can have great presence on the internet, great location, and good promotions but eventually it comes down to potential guests wanting to see exactly what they are booking. As they probably have not been in your property before, they make the decision based on what you decide to show.

Here are some tips that could help you make a great first impression:

  • High resolution photos: no matter what type of camera you have, make sure to take photos of high quality. The best size to upload on WebDirect is 1080x540 pixels. The pictures should have between 300x300 pixels and 14000x14000 pixels and the size should be at least be 100 KB and maximum 8 MB. Since your WebDirect website is responsive, you need pictures to display well on both desktop and mobile devices.
  • Horizontal Photos: these are easier to work with and prevent pictures from becoming blurry and unclear.
  • Lighting: A bright atmosphere is more pleasant. Choose for example to take photos with day light; open all of the curtains and switch on the room lights before the photo shoot.
  • Details: Is the room clean? Does the bed have any wrinkles? Details make all the difference.

Remember, you do not need to be an expert to take high quality photos, nor do you have to hire a professional photographer. You can do it!
