Best Practices

  • Images are used across platforms. It’ll be best to keep Menu Items centered in the image and with enough padding to allow the appropriate cropping across products.
  • Once an image is uploaded, it will be live on the App and Web experience. It is best practice to preview the images after uploading to confirm that the sizing and resolution are displaying as intended.

 

FAQ

  • What is the preferred size and dimension of the images to be uploaded?
    • Menu Item images preferably should be below 200kb in size and have dimensions of 889 x 500px (16:9 ratio). It is also ideal for it to be in landscape positioning. Modifier images preferably should have dimensions of 500 x 500px (1:1 ratio), also having the size of around 150kb. If an uploaded image is too large, it can cause lag and noticeably disrupt the guest experience.
  • What POS can you import images from?
    • Toast and Deliverect are currently the only confirmed POS that you can import images from, but it only happens on the initial sync of the menu.
    • If the images are already on the Admin Dashboard before they uploaded the photos on POS, it won't sync anymore and they would need to be uploaded on the Admin Dashboard directly.
