social media image sizes

You wouldn’t have a blurry image on a business card, so why have blurry images on social media?

Your brand image is what best represents you, so it needs to stay consistent throughout your online presence.

Social media channels are changing their image sizes regularly, so to make it easy, this is a place where you can find the right sizes, all in one place.

Facebook

Facebook personal profiles display slightly differently to Facebook pages, but the image sizes remain the same.

Your Facebook profile picture should be 180 x 180 pixels. It will be displayed as a circle so make sure that no important content will be cropped out. Facebook cover pictures are displayed at 820 x 312 pixels, anything smaller will be stretched and the quality won’t be as good.

Twitter

Twitter profile pictures should be 400 x 400 pixels. Twitter displays the image as 200 x 200 pixels. Again, the same as Facebook, the image will be cropped to a circle, so it is important that nothing vital is cut out of the picture.

Your Twitter cover picture needs to be 1500 x 500 pixels. If the image is smaller, the quality will be inferior and would give a bad impression when people visit your Twitter profile.

 

LinkedIn

Similar to Facebook, LinkedIn business pages and personal profiles display differently, especially with the profile picture. You will have noticed that on your personal profile, the image is cropped to a circle whereas on the business page, it is displayed as a square.

The profile picture size on LinkedIn for your business page, should be 300 x 300 pixels. As LinkedIn is very business focused and professional, it might be worth using your logo.

The LinkedIn cover picture should be 1128 x 191 pixels. Both the cover image and profile image will be shown on recommended pages, so it important that both images remain professional.
