Social Media Image Sizing Guide 2022
Social media is becoming more intertwined in our everyday lives than ever before, and it can be difficult to figure out the correct dimensions for each different platform. To help you combat this, we’ve put together a definitive guide to cover all your bases for social media image sizing in 2022!
In a busy world like ours, every minute counts so you don’t want to waste time resizing your posts multiple times – do it once and do it right! Less time fiddling around = more time gaining potential clients with your perfectly-sized posts.
Generally speaking, a square 1:1 ratio over 1080×1080 pixels (px) will work best across most platforms. This includes profile pictures and most posts.
To ensure the entire contents of the image is reaching your audience, it’s always a good idea to leave a sufficient border around the edge of your posts. This ensures users will be able to see all the information contained in the image. This is important because on platforms such as Instagram or Pinterest, images are sometimes cropped to fit nicely on the grid.
It’s also important to keep in mind that images will often appear differently on a laptop vs a mobile device. This further instills the importance of your content appearing in the middle, unless you want it to appear specifically on one device over another.
