Influencer News Update:
- Social Media Basics: The Correct Image Sizes, Dimensions and File Types to Use [Infographic] | Article by Mark Walker-Ford [source = Social Media Today]
- Today’s Article discusses a guide to optimizing images for social media from the team at Statusbrew.
- A Facebook profile picture should be no smaller than 180 x 180px. The photo can be larger, but should still maintain the aspect ratio of 1:1
- 820 x 312px seems to work best when it comes to uploading your Facebook cover photo (on a personal page). Once again, it can be larger, but must keep the same ratio.
- When sharing images on Facebook, make sure that they are 1200 x 630px. This will allow them to appear without cutting off anything in the preview.
- When uploading media to Facebook, make sure the file is a PNG, JPG, or GIF.
- Twitter profile photo size is 400 x 400px.
- Your header image on Twitter should be 1500 x 500px to avoid cutting anything out of the image.
- Photos posted in your timeline should be 1024 x 512px this will allow the full image to be seen when scrolling through your timeline.
- Twitter supports 4 file types: PNG, JPG, GIF, and WEBP.
- Instagram profile photo only shows as 180 x 180px. Instagram does not allow you to view a profile photo (other than the thumbnail), so it does not have to be a large image.
- Instagram posts should be 1080 x 1080px.
- Instagram stories should be 1080 x 1920px, this is not the most important since stories are usually take from within the Instagram application.
- Ads on Instagram should blend in and look like a post in the timeline, so they should also be 1080 x 1080px.
- LinkedIn cover photos should be 1584 x 396px, and LinkedIn tells you that when you go to upload a new cover.
- Canva – This is really good if you have no graphic design background. They supply templates and guides on how to create these graphics with their intuitive interface. There is even a free account that you can do many things in if you are unsure that you will use it enough to spend money on it. – https://www.canva.com
- Adobe Spark – this is really good if you have an Adobe Creative Cloud license. Spark takes things a step further than Canva by allowing you to also create videos optimized for social. – https://spark.adobe.com/
