The BentoBox guide to photography

BentoBox themes rely heavily on photography. It’s often said that we eat with our eyes before we taste our food, so photography can be a powerful way to connect with potential customers on your website.

Photo specifications

Photos on your BentoBox site should be no larger than 800KB, in order to ensure fast load times. Resolution varies depending on how the images are being used.


Width: 1800 - 2000px

Height: 1000 - 1500px (varies based on design & theme)


Thumbnails appear next to private events venues, store items, and news posts.

Height: Varies based on design

File type: .png


Logos should have a transparent background and use the .png file type. Uploading an alternate logo with 5:1 ratio (horizontal orientation) is recommended.

Photo handling

Since BentoBox themes are fully responsive, they adapt to the size of each visitor’s window size. This means that depending on the width of a visitor’s browser, images may be cropped at the top or bottom.  Click here for some background on responsive web design, if you’re curious.
