Social Media Image Sizes Guide

Let’s make sure you are presenting the best images on your social channels. This begins with taking a look at your profile and cover images. Make sure they are sized correctly and if they contain text please ensure the text is not cutoff of blocked on both desktop or mobile versions of the different social platforms.

Tip: You may choose to use the same cover image on all of your social networks but you’ll need to format and resize the image into several versions. For example in my own workflow I’ll have a file folder that looks something like this:

Social Branding>>

December.linkedin.cover.png

December.twitter.cover.png

It’s important to note that for each one of these files I would begin with my original image and crop it into the correct dimension for each social network based on their specs.

We’ve done the work for you and rounded up the specs you need to create and format all of the graphics and pictures for your social channels.

A few last reminders as you get started…

  • When you are creating your profile images, please keep in mind they will be cropped into a circle

  • Linkedin and pinterest accommodate variable height images in their posts but you must crop to the correct width
