Social Media Image Sizes

When adding photos to your social media page, you want them to look as clear and professional as possible. This means your photos shouldn’t look blurry and they shouldn’t be cut off at the wrong spots. That’s why it’s important to understand the pixel dimensions of each social media platform.

We want to share a list of photo dimensions of the popular social media platforms you may use, but we must note that sizes may change depending on the platform. Should you notice a social media platform made changes, revisit our website for the updated information. When viewing the dimensions, they are set by width x height. If there is a byte storage capacity next to the dimensions, that means the image file size can’t be greater than that.
