It seems like the size requirements are constantly changing – because they are. As the platforms change, as more people surf on a wider range of devices, the size requirements have to change if you want your images to make the best impression.
Each platform has different size requirements, and many platforms have several image sizes depending on the type of activity: post images, cover images, profile images, event images, … they’re all a little different.
Failing to use the correctly sizing means the image you spent so much time selecting may not display well – which means your post may not be as impactful as you hoped. You no longer have to worry about keeping track of every platform’s preferred photo and post sizes! We’ve compiled an updated list of the correct social media image sizes for each platform.
