Twitter Image Sizing Tips

Profile Photo: 400 x 400 pixels / Displays at 200 x 200 pixels (a maximum 100 KB file size)

It is often said that the “first impression is the last impression”!
Your Twitter profile picture is your main identification mark that will be visible to everyone. It will be visible on your home page, on the Twitter stream of your followers whenever you Tweet and so on.
Since it represents you or your brand, the image should be of the highest quality.

Header Photo: 1500 x 500 pixels (a maximum 10 MB file size)

You can use an eye-catchy, creative image for your high-resolution header photo on your Twitter profile page. As a business, your Twitter page header photo should be in sync with your logo, tagline and brand.

In-stream Photo: 440 x 220 pixels (a maximum 5 MB file size for photos and 3 MB file size for animated gifs)

You can post up to four pictures along with your tweets on this platform. For every in-stream picture, an image link is created which takes up the Twitter character space. You simply need to maintain the 2:1 ratio of the images which can be reduced to a smaller version to effectively fit your follower’s stream.

Image Sizing Advice for Facebook

Cover Photo: 820 x 310 pixels (a preferred maximum file size of 100 KB)
You can edit and add creative images as your cover photo that represents you or your business in the correct sense. – Appear on page at 820 x 310 pixels
– Anything less will be stretched.
– Minimum size of 399 x 150 pixels.
– Smartphones display as 640 x 360
– For best results, upload an RGB  / JPG file less than 100 KB.
– Images with a logo or text maybe best as a PNG file.

Profile Picture: 180 x 180 pixels
Unlike the cover photo, which only appears on your Facebook page, your Facebook profile picture will be seen on your page, on posts where you comment, on the timelines of others where you post messages, in search results of Facebook’s Open Graph and so on. In short, it represents you at most places on the largest social networking platform.

Shared Image: 1200 x 630 pixels
You can engage your friends or business followers in meaningful conversations by sharing useful images on your Facebook timeline. These will appear in the news feeds of your friends and followers. Check this post for more information on image sizes for Facebook

Shared Link: 1200 x 627

Image Guidelines:
– Recommended upload size of 1200 x 627
– Square Photo: Minimum 154 x 154px in feed.
– Square Photo: Minimum 116 x 116 on page.
– Rectangular Photo: Minimum 470 x 246 pixels in feed.
– Rectangular Photo: Minimum 484 x 252 pixels on page.

Facebook will scale photos under the minimum dimensions. For better results, increase image resolution at the same scale as the minimum size.

Event Image: 1920 x 1080 px
Image Guidelines
– Facebook will scale down to minimum dimensions: 470 × 174 pixels.
– Shows in feed: 470 × 174 pixels.

Highlighted Image: 1200 x 717 pixels
Image Guidelines
– Will appear on your page at 843 x 504 pixels.
– Choose a higher resolution at that scale for better quality.

Image Sizing Guidelines for TikTok

Profile Image: 20x 20 pixels

While 20 x 20 is the minimum upload size, upload a higher quality photo for future-proofing.

TikTok video size: 1080 x 1920

The ideal aspect ratio for Tik Tok videos is 1:1 or 9:16.

Instagram Image Sizing Rules

Profile Picture: 110 x 110 pixels

Photo Size: 1080 x 1080 pixels

Video to Stories: 750 x 1334 pixels

On Instagram, you can upload a video to your timeline or share it to Instagram stories. The correct size to use will be determined by where you publish it.

The maximum duration of the video should be 10 seconds.

Photo Thumbnails: 161 x 161 pixels
For all types of Instagram images, you need to maintain an aspect ratio of 1:1. So, all your images will appear in square dimensions. You need to take special care with the image quality because limited text content is shared on this platform. It is more about the pictures and visuals!

Recommended Image Sizes for Pinterest

Profile Picture: 165 x 165 pixels
A Pinterest profile picture may not be as important as that of Facebook or Twitter profile pictures. However, you still need to use a nice one. After all, anyone who arrives at your board or pins through the keyword search will probably have a look at your profile too.

Board Display Image: 222 x 150 pixels
Use eye-catchy images for posting on the relevant Pinterest boards.

Pin Sizes: a width of 238 pixels (with scaled height)
Though these are the dimensions for your Pinterest pins, expanded pins will have a minimum width of 600 pixels. You can post larger images (as only the width is fixed, while the length can be scaled further up) for better engagement and more re-pins or likes.

Optimisation Rules for Tumblr Image Sizes

Profile Image: 128 x 128 pixels
You can use a good looking square profile picture that visually represents you or your business on Tumblr. It will appear on your profile page, next to the button to “follow” you when someone lands on your page and as thumbnails next to your posts in your follower’s feeds.

Image Posts: 500 x 750 pixels
You can post images with up to 10 MB file sizes (except for animated gifs which should not be more than 1 MB). You can thus upload really high-quality pictures for your Tumblr posts.

YouTube Image Sizing Guidelines

Channel Cover Picture: 2560 x 1440 pixels (for desktop), 1855 x 423 pixels (for tablets), 1546 x 423 pixels (for smartphones), and 2560 x 1440 pixels (for TV)

The sizes are optimised for the different platforms as YouTube videos are often streamed using any of the above mentioned platforms. Also, the video channel cover image should tell your viewers more about the kind of videos that they will probably be able to view on your channel.

Video Uploads: 1280 x 760 pixels

You know that YouTube is a video sharing site and not an image sharing one. So, you need to maintain this resolution (about 16:9 aspect ratio) for the videos that you upload.

120 thoughts on “2024 Social Media Image Sizes Cheat Sheet”

  1. HI, This is such. great value and so well persented- thank you!

    One question: is there any ONE size that I can use for FB posts/story, Instagram Post/story and Twitter Post that will always work without having awkward cropping by the app?

    I really want to do everything only ONCE and post everywhere.

    That could be great help!
    Thanks, Jorg

  2. What about the Facebook “about” image on the right just below the main cover image.? I always end up making like 10 images to get it to look right.

  3. Hi and thanks for this cheat sheet! I’m tasked with giving guidelines to departments within my org for the profile photo in the various social media sites.

    The problem is some of the logos are cut off within the round profile image. Do you know the margin space for the square image that will be viewed in the round profile format (to ensure the image fits into the round format)? thanks!

  4. I’ve been playing with Facebook cover images for a project for a few days now and I find that at the rather odd and specific 827×306 dimensions there is no wiggle room in the “Drag to reposition” step and a 1px border on the test image displays on all sides (desktop).

  5. Whilst your facebook cover photo is correct for desktop, on mobile it ends up chopping off the sides of the image.

    The size actually should be. 820 x 461 with a safe zone of 820 x 312 pixels, this way when viewed on a desktop, it will appear as 820 x 312 but when viewing on mobile you will see the 820 x 461 version.

  6. Hi Jamie, I agree with all other replies: great stuff, thanks! Could you give some further guidance regarding Twitter images for mobile? I used 440×220 pixels, and great deliverance for laptop, but bluntly cut off on smart phone… Cheers!

  7. Hi Jamie! I may be doing this wrong, but when I use your template for Facebook-Profile-Template at 160×160, I get an error message on FB that states “please choose a photo that is at least 180 pixels wide.” So I made a new template in Photoshop, 180×180, 300 ppi, sRGB. When I upload that image, I get the message “This photo is small, and your profile picture will be less clear.” Am I doing something wrong here? In the past, I have used an action that sharpened and resized to 2048 x 1365 at 72 ppi and the thumbnail was about the same, but the image was much clearer in the “profile pictures” folder. Can you advise why resizing to 180×180 is best practice?

  8. Couldn’t use this information without saying thank you. Pure value to the world. Thank you Jamie, you sir are a legend. :)

  9. Hi there,

    Great infographic, useful stuff in it. One thing to be mindful of are the various platforms branding guidelines. An example from Twitter is here:


    In this guide, you’ll find they don’t want you adding gradients to their logo. I discovered this recently after realizing I had been violating the style guides of several platforms while working on my project. Hope you don’t mind the unsolicited advice :)

  10. Great stuff – and thank you for putting it all together.

    BUT – er, hasn’t Twitter just rendered your info out of date? It now has a roundel for logo / head shot. Nice of them not to tell everyone.

  11. Hey this is an awesome resource! Thanks so much for posting. I vlog on YouTube and just started my own website. ZINSWORLD. So this will be very helpful since I do my own graphic design work on photo shop. Good job!

  12. Hey Jamie, we often help our cleints out on a weekly basis with getting the design right on Social Media. I was due to write a blog post on this but really cant fault anything you have here (especially with the constant updates with the ever changing social media platforms). Would you be so kind to let me reference this page in a blog post full link back to this site and credit to the author?

  13. We’re having some problems with Twitter images in stream on the iPad – On the web the image work perfectly once resized to the above dimensions but when we view our stream on an iPad the image is cropped again. How can I stop this from happening? Thanks.

  14. I can’t believe their was no mention of Instagram’s 4:5 Ratio option. Which is now become just as popular if not more than 1:1 Ratio. 4:5 Ratio is 1080×1350 Pixels.

  15. Very poor post. Your Facebook guide is outdated and the sizes are not fit to all the cover photo like pages, groups events etc. Your cover photo size is not responsive. They cut off on the mobile devices.

  16. Thanks, this helps a lot. But doesn’t Facebook still have the 20% text rule when creating graphics aside from the cover photo?

  17. Hi Jamie,

    Great work! I work for the IDM and we provide marketing content. I would love to reference this article for one of our online courses (of course link back to you and we reference according to Harvard style). However, I have to make you as the author aware because the content sits behind a password protected log in.

    Please let me know whether I can reference this article or if there is any more info you need!

  18. Hi Jamie, I just posted a Pinterest pin (photo) to Facebook but the photo appears significantly zoomed in on Facebook, so a lot of the photo is not visible. I’m a novice when it comes to image sizing so am wondering if you have any tips for how to size a Pinterest picture so that it doesn’t get cut off on Facebook?

  19. Awesome! Is the HTML code correct? It doesn’t seem to be loading properly when I add it to my site. The title and your website as a reference loads, but not the images.

  20. Thanks for this compilation. Very helpful for designers. Any plans to include dimension for Flickr header images? My online research comes up with conflicting information and I’ve been struggling to figure out dimensions for my page header image. Flickr does a weird thing with resizing and cropping.

  21. That’s great, Jamie. Thank you. Really appreciate your feedback. I’ll make that my default action.

    And yep, I always use RGB. It’s kinda liberating for an ex print guy. I don’t miss CMYK one bit!

  22. No one ever seems to mention what DPI/PPI we should save our images at (for our social media assets)… nor the ideal file size. So that’s my question. Are we talking 72ppi or 150ppi or even 300ppi? And what’s the range when it comes to file size?

    • Mark

      DPI/PPI are relative to printed images and therefore are irrelevant. Pixels are all you ever need to think about. To determine how big an image should be on your website, you have to know what size in pixels it needs to fill.

      Well unless you’re using a vector format like SVG… are you?


      • Cheers for getting back to me Jamie. Much appreciated. And gotcha…

        I do use some SVG’s, yep. But as for JPG’s, I’ve always gone with 72ppi images in the past. However, there’s been a suggestion that I save at 150ppi in future (to account for retina). Please bear with me. I come from a print background, so without being told what PPI an image should be when I make it in Photoshop—or more to the point, save it from Photoshop—I feel lost at sea.

        As a result, when I save for a full-width section/background image for a web page, my average image is 1920px x 1280px (now at 150ppi). I use the Save for Web dialogue and set the image to save at around 200k (approx. 60%). It then gets compressed a bit more when it’s uploaded, thanks to Smush.

        In the past, I’ve saved JPGs for Facebook profile images at the exact sizes I was advised (180px x 180px @ 72ppi). However, they were visibly low rez and pixelated. So I increased the variables ( to 1000px x 1000px) and, sure enough, it then looked sharp. I can’t remember for sure, but I might’ve even gone with a traditional print ppi of 300. Maybe 150? Either way, the outcome was decent.

        I find that when an image is saved to fit the exact space (and at 72ppi)—especially in profile shots—it looks obviously low rez. So how do we combat that? And what default ppi setting should we run with in Photoshop. It has got to be set at something—even if it’s irrelevant for web—so what’s best practice?


        P.S. How does the use of SVG’s differ? DO they need to be exact dimensions and rez?

      • Set the exact image size in the image options that Photoshop gives you when you start a new image.
        I always set the resolution to a minimum of 150ppi when creating images for social platforms. It’s not too big to upload and not too small in terms of quality, and you do get a high quality from this resolution.

        Forget about SVGs. Upload as JPG and set the quality to between 80 & 100% when you save to web.
        Also make sure your color profile is RGB. SO many save to CMYK and it just makes cyans and magenta almost luminous.

        Good luck.

  23. Do you have a recommendation for images on craftsy.com? I’m a budding web developer who is also a designer of craft patterns. Thank you so very much for this article. VERY helpful!

  24. Thanks for making the best social media size reference out there, Jamie! Inevitably things change so here’s a few things I’ve spotted today:

    1. The LinkedIn business page cover size is now 1526 x 768
    2. The LinkedIn personal profile background size is now 1400 x 425
    3. The Photoshop download doesn’t include a file for YouTube channel art

    I agree with the previous comments about Photoshop showing the ‘dead zones’, especially for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

    Keep up the great content! : )

    • Thanks Paul

      You’re right, things do change quite a bit. I only updated twice a year. Just about to publish the new one on Dec 1st 2016.



  25. Hi,
    180×180 px, too light for Facebook, i send a picture to 250x250px can I reduce my image with the Zoom of Facebook option.

    Do you have sizes for Dailymotion?

    And covers for personal pages on Tumblr?

    Thank you

  26. Hi Jamie

    Thanks for collecting all of this together in one place, really useful, really generous!

    One request, if I may, is that it would be great to include areas in the PSD laters to indicate the dead-zones. For example, to show which parts of the facebook cover photo will get cut off in the mobile view vs the desktop.


  27. Hi, regardless of the sizes recommended I still find my Facebook links’ featured images looking pixelated and ugly (tried 1200 x 627, and the same ratio with 2400 x 1254 and 4800 x 2508). Tried saving as JPG for both Photoshop maximum quality (1.9mb) and high quality (980ikb) as well. Any tips on how I can improve the resolution?

  28. From what I understand in this video, Facebook Open Graph and Twitter Cards are also important for click-throughs on your links. Do you have any info on the image size required for those? Because I’ve seen you mention Open Graph but nothing about the optimal image size for it.

    Thanks in advance for any answer!

  29. Suggestion for improvement — include aspect ratio for all non-square images. May be easier to create hi-res originals targeted to a ratio instead of px size, then let the site resize it down.

  30. Hi, the recommended dimensions for the instagram profile picture are 180×180, this is accounting for the size displayed on the web, which is bigger than the one displayed on the mobile app. Great infographic!

  31. Thought some might not have noticed the new Facebook Carousel Ad format which requires images 600x600px.
    However, if you create your ad that size you are limited in the amount and size of text (the 20% rule).
    However, if you create images the standard FB Ad size (1200×628) and design the part of the image you want to display in the centre section (628×628) , you can add much more text because it’s 20% of the larger image. FB will resize and crop your images to 600×600.

  32. I CANNOT BELIEVE you don’t have social share buttons on this kick ass post. You are missing a TON of free traffic and shares brother. I would combine that with a social locker by OnePress to get access to the PSD templates and you’ll get 5X the results too! Thanks for sharing.

    • I don’t care too much for share buttons. If people really want to share it, they will copy and paste the URL into whatever social platform they use. This piece gets shared many times everyday, so I’m not that worried.

  33. Instagram now allows rectangular photos. I’m not sure of the dimensions or how they work, but I actually came here looking for that info.

  34. Thanks for this it’s been a good use in the past. I’ve just seen they’ve changed the header size for Facebook pages (as of 04/08/16), could you post about the new size? Many thanks :)

  35. Thank you so much for doing this! This has helped me so much as I run various social media accounts and its sometimes hard to keep up with these image sizes.

  36. Thanks, is an amazing guide and all the templates are a fantastic resource. We are in debt to your amazing knowledge!

  37. This is GREAT information. I think that a good addition would be what the mobile versions of each of these sites displays. 2/3 of the visitors to my facebook page are mobile. Today I finally found a template that combined the cover photo dimensions for both mobile and desktop in one template (since one image needs to fit both places). It was a real help, but not as well done as what you do here.

  38. Thank you Jamie for the information about social media image sizes. It’s quite annoying when they cut an image off and the punch line of the meme is only half shown, This information will come in handy.

  39. A couple Facebook psd template sizes do not match your infographic or text within your web page. Facebook-Profile-Template.psd is 160×160. Infographic and web page text say 180×180. Facebook-Profile-Background.psd is 828×315. Infographic and web page text say 851×315. I haven’t checked all of the psd templates for accuracy. Just Facebook.

    • According to Facebook, the profile background image should be 828×315. And Facebook also says that the profile picture is 160×160. So in both cases your photoshop templates are correct, and your infographic and web page text are wrong.

  40. Hi Jamie, regarding the facebook cover, is the mobile area still 563 x315 px as it was?
    What about the different location of the profile picture on a company page (left) vs personal page (centered) on mobile, do you know the dimensions?
    Cheers from Portugal!

  41. Thanks Jamie,

    You´re PSD files are really helpfull! Can I use your images in my own blog (of course with link to your website). If yes, do you happen to have this d0cument indesign (so I can translate it into Dutch).

    Have a nice dag, Pien

  42. Thank you for updating the informations to 2016. However I have one small suggestion: you could include the name and not only the icon for the social media services because not everyone knows every channel. I know 4 out of them and the rest I can’t even google quickly and need to find out first which logo stands for which service. But otherwise you did a great job!

  43. Awesome, thank you! But I have a question for you regarding the Facebook Timeline Photo. I can see Facebook resizes the images at 470 px width in the desktop news feed… How come you recommend 1200x630px images? And where does Facebook displays the timeline photo at 504 px width? Thank you very much!

  44. Thank you for this post, have linked to it from my blog.

    You have saved me from going bald from pulling my hair out every time I have to share content across different social media channels. :-D

  45. Jamie, excellent job on the infographic! We’re linking to this post in an email that goes to new subscribers of SocialMarketingPlanner.com. Keep up the great work.

  46. Hey, just wanted to let you know that the proportions on your youtube graphic are wrong. The box at the top that you are referring to is not 2560 x 1440. I’m actually not sure which proportions you used for it since it seems to be at a ratio of 221:54.

  47. Hi Jamie, just like Severine, I would like to know if you know the sizes for pictures, when doing an update on LinkedIn (as a company)?

  48. Hi Jamie, my name is Elizabeth, I´m from Puebla, México and I’m working in my university degree, it is a short manual for community management for the advertising agency in my school and I would like to add the images that you are using in the article, so, if they are originally yours, may I use them for it? Thank you! And really nice work, I loved the article :)

  49. What size should the tumblr banner image be to fit the same across all platforms without tiling or significantly cutting part of it off?

  50. Hi there,

    Regarding LinkedIn, do you have the same information when it comes to the updates and the post section (Pulse), please? Would be extremely useful for individual contributors.

    • absolutely! Many of these social guru sites totally miss this! And about how ‘featured images’ are dragged in (and how you should prepare for these if you can, including how you design for these eg text in middle of graphic)… ffs!

  51. Please update your Tumblr information. 1) The profile photo (avatar) appears as 64 by 64 pixels (not 128 by 128 pixels) on the Dashboard. 2) The maximum size for avatars is 512 by 512 pixels. 3) Tumblr no longer accepts BMP files. 4) Images now appear as 540 pixels wide (maximum) by 810 pixels high (maximum) on the Dashboard. 5) Animated GIFs must be under 2 MB. Also, the 500-pixel reference is outdated. GIFs can be 1280 x 1920 as long as they are under 2 MB. 6) Finally, consider using the most recent Tumblr “t” logo.from https://www.tumblr.com/logo
