Social Media Image Sizes: The Ultimate 2018 Guide


How do I size a Facebook image?

Have you been frustrated with the lack of quality in the images you post on social media? Maybe you haven’t used the right size for each platform! In our opinion, the only thing that’s ever truly “one size fits all” is a rain poncho…so know that each platform is different!

Every platform has different size and resolution requirements when it comes to your images. If you’re not careful and don’t pay attention to these requirements, you run the risk of having blurry images, weird cropping, and a diminished perception of the quality of content you’re posting.

We know that reputation is everything. The last thing you want is a diminished perception of your content quality.

Also know, social media sizes have a tendency to change, so it’s important to research image sizes every few months.
