Looking for an up-to-date social media image sizes cheat sheet?
Want to save time by creating social media images that fit the first time?
With this cheat sheet, you’ll avoid the hassle of keeping track of the always changing social media image sizes and make sure your brand presents the best first impression.
This “Social Media Image Sizes Cheat Sheet” is a list of recommended photo sizes for most major social networks.
If some of the sizes look different from what you’re used to, it’s probably because a lot of social media image size posts focus on the “display size” rather than the “creation size.”
Display size vs. Creation size
One of the things I’ve noticed when researching optimal social media image sizes is the confusion that is caused by the size an image is displayed, and the size that same image should be created at.
In some circumstances, the display size and the creation size are the same – but more often than not – the creation size will be larger than the size it will appear on your social media profiles.
To avoid any confusion, I’m going to focus on the creation size for this cheat sheet.
If you’d like to know the display size for any of the social media images, I’ll post links to more in-depth articles for each social media network below.
