The Herschel Astrophysical Terahertz Large Area Survey (H-ATLAS) is a survey of 660 deg$^2$ with the PACS and SPIRE cameras in five photometric bands: 100, 160, 250, 350, and 500{\mu}m. In this paper we present the images from our two largest fields which account for ~75{\%} of the survey. The first field is 180.1 deg$^2$ in size centered on the North Galactic Pole (NGP) and the second field is 317.6 deg$^2$ in size centered on the South Galactic Pole. The NGP field serendipitously contains the Coma cluster. Over most (~80{\%}) of the images, the pixel noise, including both instrumental noise and confusion noise, is approximately 3.6, and 3.5 mJy/pix at 100 and 160{\mu}m, and 11.0, 11.1 and 12.3 mJy/beam at 250, 350 and 500{\mu}m, respectively, but reaches lower values in some parts of the images. If a matched filter is applied to optimize point-source detection, our total 1{\sigma} map sensitivity is 5.7, 6.0, and 7.3 mJy at 250, 350, and 500{\mu}m, respectively. We describe the results of an investigation of the noise properties of the images.

For PACS we find an estimate of the confusion noise in our fast-parallel observations of 4.23 and 4.62 mJy/beam at 100 and 160{\mu}m.
