Social Media Image Sizes Cheat Sheet

Getting the social images right

It’s hard to design a good image for social media if you’re not sure how its going to get cropped for display on the page. Use this guide to determine sizes, or at least keep to the same ratios. That’ll help you design in tools like Photoshop and Canva to make sure text and photos you add to a social sharing image don’t get cropped out.

Tips for Proper Image Sizing

Remember that, even though an image is displayed at a certain size on a social media page, you can still usually upload a larger image size. The upload tool on each site will tell you if the image is too large to upload, but the limits are typically pretty high. Uploading a larger-sized image with the same proportions (use multiples of the dimensions listed in this guide) can sometimes lead to better image display.

A good rule of thumb that I use is to try to stay in the 1000-2000px range for width on cover images, 200-800px square range on profile images and logos (depending on how large it will display on the page), and a 500-1000px range for width on shared images. You may also want to keep in mind that any circular profile images could crop out important parts of a picture, so create those with content focused in the center.
