Step one – Sign in to your Amazon affiliate account.
Amazon product images are available to use for Amazon affiliate members only. To start, ensure you have signed in to your account.
Once signed in, you have access to the Amazon Site Stripe, this allows you to get product images from Amazon.
You can see the Site Stripe across the top of the screen every time you visit Amazon.
Step two – Select a single product from Amazon.
Next, find a single product from Amazon that you want to promote on your website. Only single product items have an option to get an image.
As an example, I have selected the Wyse cam.
Step three – Select the Image link from the Site Stripe.
To get an image for this product, click on the ‘Image’ link in the Site Stripe.
In the popup, there is an image preview, size selector, and highlighted HTML code. Select the size you require, then copy the highlighted code.
Step four – Paste the code into your blog post.
Once you have your code from the Amazon Site Stripe, return to your blog post.
To add the image, create a new HTML block.
Click on the create block icon on the right or top-left.
Search for ‘HTML.’
Select the ‘Custom HTML block.’
Now you have a block for the Amazon Site Stripe code.
Paste the code you got from Amazon into this block.
To preview your image, select ‘Preview’ from the toolbar.
To change the alignment of the image, click on the three dots on the right of the toolbar.
From the list, select ‘Convert to blocks.’
Once selected, you get an error message to tell you the image has to ‘Alt tag.’ Delete the error message first by using the remove block option.
Once removed, you can change the alignment of your image and add an alt tag.
To change alignment, select this icon, and make your selection from the list.
To add an alt tag, add your text to the box on the right of the editor.
Step five – Publish your post.
Once you have finished your blog post, it is time to publish your content.
Select ‘Publish,’ then ‘View post’ to see your Amazon product image on your blog.
Here is my live post. The image has your unique affiliate code embedded. If a visitor clicks on the image, they go to the product on Amazon. If they purchase the item, you get a commission.

Now you know how to get Amazon product images for your website. Always use the Amazon Site Stripe don’t download images directly from Amazon. Those images are copyrighted. You could get your Amazon affiliate account deactivated.
I recommend adding the ‘Alt text’ to your images. Alt text helps search engines understand the purpose of your image.
