What size/type of images should I use?

For optimal presentation, please try to use high-resolution, square (1:1) images. The system will accept any images of all size ratios, but your awesome food pics will look their best when you use images as close to the 1:1 ratio as possible (i.e. square pics are best).  Please only use .JPG or .PNG images types. 

What kind of images should I include?

For some inspiration you can check out other Hawkker Vendors or can check out how some of your favourite food photographers have shot food in the social media feeds. 

Your images don't just have to be of your food, it can be of your stall or shop, or any interesting preparation steps that you use in making your food.

Can I use images that aren't mine?

If you want to use photos that were taken by somebody else, please get their permission first.

I don't have any great images of my food, what shall I do?

If you don’t have any drool-worthy pictures of your food, please reach out to us to arrange a photography session with someone from the Hawkker team.

How can I tweak my images?

There are a number of great, free online photo editors that let you edit your images and export versions in the 1:1 (square) size ratio. We love:


An awesome, free mobile app for image editing is Google's Snapseed App:

What is my Hero Image?

Your Hero Image  is the single image that appears in the Discover area when customers are browsing through Vendors in the Hawkker Eater app or website. It is the image that Eaters will see before they jump into your profile, so you should choose an enticing image that accurately portrays the food you offer.

What about the Other Images?
