Recommended Image File Type, Size, and Dimensions #

We recommend a square photo with a minimum size of 400×400. We recommend a jpg image but we support png and gif file types.

Additional Advice for Images #

  • We do not recommend using an image larger than a 3:2 or 2:3 ratio. The resulting image may be stretched, blurry, or cut off as a result.
  • We do not recommend using an image with a transparent background since the background may turn black on certain handsets.
  • We do not recommend using an animated gif for the photo since the image will lose its animation when converted.

Additional Notes #

  • We support up to four phone numbers, email addresses, and physical addresses in the vCard.
  • We support the labels ‘work’ and ‘home’ for the phone numbers, email addresses, and physical addresses labels in the vCard.
  • For more information, please visit the API documentation here.
