Every year it seems that the social media companies change the goal posts slightly when it comes to the correct dimensions for a perfect header banner or profile picture.
Luckily, you don’t need to dig around to find out those measurements because we’ve created a one-stop shop for all your social media image needs in 2019!
Profile picture: 180 x 180 pixels Cover photos: 820 x 320 pixels, make to test this on mobile where the majority of your traffic will come from! Post image: 1200 x 630 pixels, anything else will be stretched or shrunk.
Profile picture: 110 x 110 pixels Profile image thumbnails: 161 x 161 pixels Individual images: 1080 x 1080 pixels or for rectangular size, a 4:5 ratio. Stories: 1080 x 1920 pixels (aspect ratio 9:16)
Profile picture: 400 x 400 pixels Header banner: 1500 x 500 pixels (align any text to the right so it doesn’t get interrupted by your profile picture!) Tweet image: Max – 1024 x 512 pixels, Minimum – 440 x 220 pixels
Company logo/Profile image: 300 x 300 pixels Cover image: 1536 x 768 pixels Post image: 1200 x 630 pixels
Remember, having optimised images on social media is crucial to how well your content and profile is engaged with. Bad imagery that’s stretch, blurry or shrunk won’t encourage potential followers to engage with you!
