The Ultimate Cheat Sheet of Social Media Image Sizes

April 3, 2017


While selecting cover photos, shared images, and other social media assets, having a detailed list of image sizes at one place might help you save some trouble. Along with that, what if you want to make sure that a certain area of your cover photo isn’t obstructed by your profile photo? And what would be the difference between in-stream photos or shared link thumbnails — are the dimensions different for those?


As it turns out, figuring out social media image sizes correctly is no an easy task. Photo dimensions can vary according to how and where it’s being shared — from profile pictures, to timeline images, to cover photos.


Just because of that, we created a detailed guide on social media image sizes. Check the infographic below. It’s gonna be a very valuable resource to keep on-hand for the next time you’re working on the designs for your social media channels.


So, without further fuss — let’s get visual.
