There has been a change in the Cover Photo Preview on your listing page.
Earlier only the main cover image was shown, but now a Collage of the first 5 photos is shown.
I love this change. Ideally, you should try to showcase any of the following in the 5 pictures:
1. The Bedroom (most important)
2. The Common areas (Drawing room, Kitchen, Dining room, etc.)
3. The View from the Balcony/Terrace, etc.
4. The Exterior of the House/Surrounding
5. The Washroom
6. Additional Amenities (Breakfast, Parking, etc.)
I hope this post helps you. If you have updated the order of your lisitng photos, share a screenshot of your cover photo space layout below in the comments.
@Jeet I posted about this the day it started to give everyone a heads up to change the order of their photo's to showcase the top 5. I also do like the new layout, but I would have preferred to have been given a heads up about it.
Hey Letti, thanks for sharing your post. I agree and early heads up helps. As far as I remember, Airbnb had sent a notification email before making the change. But I may be mistaken. My memory is challenging me these days.
Wow, @Jeet your listing is looking great. I hope you are good. :)
It is fantastic, you like the photo layout.
Thanks for sharing what you think should be included in the first 5 photos. Did it take you much time, trying this out before concluding this?
Hi Lizzie. I have used Getty Images for this post instead of using images from my own listing as I don’t have proper professional photos yet :)
It didn’t take much time though. Just some moving around. Trial and Error.
I’ve been good. Hope you’ve been great too :)
@Lizzie I don't see this on my listing so presumably it is not yet happening here. I have not seen any notification from Airbnb about this, and given that this is potentially such a major update, I would have thought it courteous for them to provide some sort of notification.
I wonder if it is in the testing version? One day I can see new layout and another day no. And in my opinion it will be a bit difficult to organize all pictures logically.
