Social Media Image Sizes Cheat Sheet and templates

Social Media Image Sizes Cheat Sheet Infographic

I spotted this really useful Social Media Image Sizes infographic earlier on twitter. It has all the image dimensions and file size restrictions for all the major social media platforms. I thought I’d post it to the blog, if only so I know where to find it when I need it, but I think you’ll find it useful.
Social Media Image Sizes

Facebook

Profile image: 180x180px but note that Facebook will also generate a 32 x 32 version as a thumbnail which will be used throughout Facebook.

Cover Photo: 851 x 315px – if you make it any smaller then it will be scaled to this size. For best results upload an RGB JPG file less than 100kb. Images with a logo or text may be best as a PNG file.

Uploaded / Shared Images: The recommended size is 1,200 x 630 px. These will appear in feed at a max width of 470 px and will scale to this size if you upload a smaller image.
