Best Social Media Image Dimensions Cheat Sheet [Infographic]

It’s no secret that our favorite social media platforms are competing for our attention. As such, each likes to make changes that send many folks into a frenzy.

The most cumbersome of these changes for most (myself included) is usually the image size tweaks.

Keeping up with social media image sizes is starting to become a job in and of itself. Or is it just me?

If you don’t keep track of the image dimensions to use for each platform, your images can wind up looking grainy and shabby after you’ve spent a ton of time creating them. Which makes you look not-so-good. We don’t want this to happen now do we?

    I will definitely be bookmarking this page! Great information! Thank you! I see a lot of blurred snapshots and know they’ve been uploaded a little smaller than optimal sizes. Some companies do this on purpose to discourage people from using their photos, of even sharing them! What’s the purpose of trying to network if you’re sabotaging yourself? Again, great info. Thanks so much!

    • Most welcome Caroline! And I totally agree, what’s the point of sharing if you don’t put your best face forward? It just makes you look bad:( Thanks for stopping by!

  • This is great information! I didn’t realize it was so technical. I wonder if they would jump on board with a standard size across the board!

    • Thanks! They’ll never standardize sizes. They’re competing platforms, each trying to be more unique than the next, which unfortunately means more work for us if we want to keep up:(
