The Ideal Image Sizes for Your Social Media Posts: Guidelines for All 6 Major Social Networks

This post was originally published in 2016 and has been updated with the latest ideal image sizes for the various social media platforms, as of August 2017.

You’ve got all the great tools to createengaging images for social media. You know whatthe brain loves about visualsand how to build something beautiful to drive engagement. You’re all set to make something great!

One last thing: How exactly should your image look so it fitsin the News Feed, timeline, or stream?

There’s so much to consider in creating great images for social media-for me, the size and shape tend to get locked in before I even realize what’s happened. Yet the size and shape – the height, width, and orientation – are the elementsthat most influence how an image will appear in a social media stream.

Fortunately, there are some answers out there on how to create ideal images that show up consistently great in your audience’s timelines. We’ve collected all the answers here, along with our favorite two templates to fit any network.

Ideal image sizes for social media

Image sizes are a huge topic to cover.

There are ideal image sizes for cover photos and profile pictures, Facebook ads, and Twitter cards. Several in-depth blog posts have tackled an overview of what’s best in all these many different spots.Here is one of my favorites:

Most of the major social media channels like Facebook and Twitter now give you added control over how your profile picture and cover photo look.You get some really neat toolsto resize and scale these pictures until they’re pixel perfect.

Here’s the process for a Facebook cover photo, for example.

fb-cover

For ideal sizes on cover photos and profile pictures, I’d highly recommend the site mentioned above. It has got it all covered.

I’d love for this post to focus specifically on the social media images you share with your updates, either as imageattachments or as links.

Looking for a particular social platform? Try clicking one of these categories below to jump to the relevant section:

The best sizes for sharing images on social media

We’ve long been interested in the impact of social media images for engagement, retweets, clicks, and more. We found that tweets with images receive 150 percent more retweets than those without.

One of the big questions for me is how you get anengaging image to look its best when it’s in a stream, timeline, or News Feed?

What’s the best – and maybe even the easiest – way to go about it?

In general, here are the best sizes for sharing images on social media. (Click on any link here to jump to the details for a specific network.)

Facebook 1,200 x 628

Twitter 1,024 x 576

Instagram 1,080 x 1,080

LinkedIn 552 x 368

Pinterest 600 x 900

Google+ 800 x 320

Our two favorite image size templates that cover most networks

In experimenting with the fastest, easiest way to create images we know will work well in social media feeds, we came across a couple of image sizes that became our go-tos: one size for horizontal (landscape) images and one for vertical (portrait) images.

  • Horizontal (landscape) 1,024 x 512
  • Vertical (portrait) 800 x 1,200

One of the simplest ways we’ve found for creating the 1,024 x 512-pixel images is to use Pablo. You can create an image in under 30 seconds and share directly to Twitter, Facebook, and Buffer.

We use the horizontal size for sharing to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+.

We use the vertical size for sharing to Pinterest.

(We have also recently been experimenting with square images – 1024 pixels wide by 1024 pixels tall.)

The horizontal size isn’t quite spot on. But that’s alright because, as you’ll read below, most platforms now adjust the height of the images accordingly without cropping the images. Even when they do crop, we’ve found that it’s close enough where no important bits get cropped.

Ideal image sizes for Facebook posts

Sharing images to Facebook

The orientation of your image-whether it’s horizontal (landscape), vertical (portrait), or square-will determine which dimensions Facebook uses to show your image.

If you upload a square image to share, it will be 476 pixels square. This’ll be the case no matter what sizesquare you upload, be it an 800 x 800 image or a 400 x 400 image (the smaller images might appear a bit blurry when they are sized up to 476 pixels square).

Facebook Image Size - Square

If you upload a horizontal (landscape)image, it will be scaled to 476pixels wideand the height will be adjusted accordingly.

Facebook Image Size - Horizontal (Landscape)

If you upload a vertical (portrait)image, it will be scaled to 476 pixels wide and the height will be adjusted accordingly but to a maximum of 714 pixels tall.Facebook will crop away the bottom of the image beyond the 714 pixels.

Facebook Image Size - Vertical (Portrait)

If you plan on sharing multiple images in the same Facebook post, there are some great insights at Have Camera Will Travel that cover all the various options that ensue here.

Sharing links to Facebook (and the images that come with them)

If you share a link to Facebook, the image associated with the link can be displayed in a number of ways. Again, all depends on the image size (pixel width and height) and shape (orientation).

Images previews for shared linksare scaled to fill a box of 476 pixels wide by 249 pixels tall.

Facebook Image Size - Link

When choosing an image to go along with a link, Facebook looks at the Open Graph tags for a page, specifically the og:image tag, which specifies the image that Facebook should use when sharing in the News Feed.

You can add the og:image tag manually into the section on every page of your website, or you can try out a plugin like Yoast SEO for WordPress, which handles the code and implementationfor you. (We’re big fans of the Yoast plugin for the Buffer blog.)

If you are creating an image to be used in the og:image tag for your link, keep in mind that anything outside of476x249 pixels will be cropped from the top and bottom in order to fit.

Facebook Image Size - Link (Cropped)

Additionally, if the link you share does not have the proper og:image tags installed or the image in the tag is not large enough, Facebook will not display it full-width or might not display an image preview at all. If it does, a thumbnail image will be placed in a small box to the left of the link text.

For most all image orientations – square, horizontal (landscape), and vertical (portrait) – thethumbnail will be scaled and cropped to fit a 158 x 158-pixel square.

Facebook Image Size - Link (Small)

If you add multiple images to a link post, Facebook will automatically convert it into a carousel post. Each image is cropped to fit a 300 x 300-pixel square.

Facebook Image Size - Link (Multiple Images)

What we’ve found to be a great solution for creating and sharing images to Facebook is to build an image that is 1024 x 512. While this doesn’t quite fit the dimensions above perfectly, it is large enough to look great on retina displays (where the pixel density is greater) and large enough so as to fit with the full-width areas in the News Feed.

(And as you’ll see below, this image size is ideal for Twitter as well.)

If you want to make sure that your photos display in the highest possible quality, Facebook has some advice for you.

Ideal image sizes for tweets

Twitter images used to appear on the timeline at 506 pixels wide by 253 pixels tall. Now, Twitter images appear bigger and less cropped when viewed on a desktop.

Sharing a single image to Twitter

On the desktop, regardless of the orientation of your image – horizontal (landscape), vertical (portrait), or square –it will be scaled to506 pixels wide and the height will be adjusted accordingly but to a maximum of 747 pixels tall.The top and bottom of the image will be cropped away.

So a square image will nicely take up all the space available.

Twitter Image Size - Square

But if you upload an image thatis smaller than 506 pixels wide by 253 pixels tall, there will be a whitespace to the right of the image.

Note: On mobile, images will be cropped into a horizontal rectangle. From my tests, it seems that1024 pixels wide by 576 pixels tall is the ideal Twitter image size for displaying your image fully on mobile. (This dimension also works great on the desktop.)

Twitter Image Size - Mobile

Sharing multiple images to Twitter

Twitter also allows you to upload up to four images to each tweet. The images used to be displayed as four equal horizontal rectangles but now, they are cropped into squares and the first image you upload will appear bigger.

Twitter Image Size - Multiple Images

The featured image will be scaled to various sizes depending on the number of photos you upload and cropped into a square:

  • Two images: Scaled to 252 pixels tall and cropped to 252 pixels wide
  • Three images: Scaled to337 pixels tall and cropped to 337 pixels wide
  • Four images: Scaled to 379 pixels tall and cropped to 379 pixels wide

The remaining images will also be scaled and cropped into squares.

Note: On mobile, images will be cropped differently.Here’s an overview of the aspect ratios, from Twitter:

Twitter Image Size - Multiple Images (Mobile)

Image sizes for Twitter cards

Images are also present in each of the nine different Twitter Cards. If you’re interested in trying out something like a lead generation card or a product card, Twitter did a great job of breaking down the images sizes for each type of card. I’d like to get a bit deeper into a couple of specific ones that seem key for content sharing.

  • Summary card
  • Summary card with large image

Summary cards show a headline, description, link, and photo when you share a URL from a site that contains the appropriate Twitter Cards code. All this information is pulled via HTML tags, often the same ones that are being used by Facebook to display links.

(The Yoast SEO WordPress plugin mentioned above also includes supportfor Twitter Cards.)

Each type of summary card contains a thumbnail or featured image.

For summary cards:

The image must be a minimum size of 144 pixels wide by 144 pixels tall and must be less than 5MB in file size.

The image will also be cropped into a 125125-pixel square.

Twitter Image Size - Summary Card

For summary cards with large images:

The image should be at least 300 pixels wide by 157 pixels tall. Image must be less than 5MB in size.

The image will be cropped into a rectangle with a 2:1 aspect ratio.

Twitter Image Size - Summary Card with Large Image

If you’re curious how your images might look with Twitter Cards, you can enter your link into Twitter’s free card validatorto get a quick preview.

Ideal image sizes for Instagramphotos

Sharing photos to Instagram

Instagram used to be all about the square image. However, you can now upload landscape (horizontal) or portrait (vertical) photos as well. Here are the best sizes for Instagram’s three image types:

  • Square image: 1080 pixels wide by 1080 pixels tall
  • Vertical image: 1080 pixels wide by 1350 pixels tall
  • Horizontal image: 1080 pixels wide by 566 pixels tall

Vertical (Portrait)

Instagram Image Size - Vertical (Portrait)

Horizontal (Landscape)

Instagram Image Size - Horizontal (Landscape)

The thumbnailphotos that appear on one’s profile page are 293 pixels wide by 293 pixels tall.

Sharing Instagram stories

Instagram stories are displayed at an aspect ratio of 9:16. So the ideal size for Instagram stories is 1080 pixels wide by 1920 pixels tall.

So the ideal size for Instagram stories is 1080 pixels wide by 1920 pixels tall.

Ideal image sizes for LinkedIn posts

Sharing to your LinkedIn personal profile

According to a moderator of LinkedIn’s help forum, the ideal image size is 522 pixels wide by 368 pixels tall.

If you upload an image directly, the image will appear at a maximum width of 552 pixels and amaximum height of 368 pixels.The image will be cropped to fit this box.

It seems that if you upload a landscape image, LinkedIn will scale it to a height of 368 pixels and crop the sides. If you upload a portrait or square image, LinkedIn will scale it to a width of 552 pixels and crop the bottom of the image.

(LinkedIn only crops the image preview. People can still see the full image by clicking on it.)

LinkedIn Image Size

When you share links and articles to LinkedIn, the image preview will be scaled and cropped to fit a box of 520 pixels wide by 272 pixels tall.

LinkedIn Image Size - Link

Sharing to your LinkedIn Company Page

Images shared to your LinkedIn Company Page will look slightly different than images shared to your personal profile.Images will be scaled to fit into a 436-pixels-wide-by-228-pixels tall rectangle.

LinkedIn Company Page Image Size

LinkedIn doesn’t seem to crop images when they don’t fit that box. It scales the images and adds gray spaces accordingly.

If an image is too wide (e.g. landscape), LinkedIn will scale it to 436 pixels wide, adjust the height accordingly, and add gray spaces to the top and bottom of the image.If an image is too tall (e.g. square or portrait), LinkedIn will scale it to 228 pixels tall, adjust the width accordingly, and add gray spaces to the left and right of the image.

LinkedIn Company Page Image Size with Gray Spaces

When links are shared to your Company Page, the image preview will be scaled and cropped to fit a box of 436 pixels wide by 228 pixels tall.

LinkedIn Company Page Image Size - Link

This is a different size from when links are shared to your personal profile.

The good news? It’s almost the same aspect ratio as the image preview of links shared on your personal profile. So the same image should scale nicely for both image previews of links on your personal profile and Company Page.

Sharing to your LinkedIn Showcase Pages

LinkedIn’s Showcase Pages, a feature that allows companies to create pages based on offshoots of their brand (for instance, Adobe created pages for Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe Marketing Cloud, etc.), display images in a slightly different size but resizes them in the same ways:

  • On these pages, images and image preview for links will appear in a box of 366 pixels wide by 191 pixels tall (roughly the same aspect ratio as those above).
  • Images will be scaled and gray spaces will be added accordingly.
  • Image preview for links will be scaled and cropped to fit the box.

LinkedIn Showcase Page Image Size

According to eDigital, the ideal image size for your LinkedIn Company Page is 1200 pixels wide by 628 pixels tall.This size seems to work great for all the various image types – images on your personal profile, Company Page, and Showcase Pages.

LinkedIn uses the same Open Graph tags as Facebook and other social networks. If you’ve got your site well-optimized for Facebook links, then you should be good to go for LinkedIn as well.

Images in LinkedIn articles

One additionalway to share content on LinkedIn is by publishing articles that appear on people’s home pages. LinkedIn built a substantial publishing platform for this content,which includes the ability to add featured images to the articles.

In the home page feed, the featured image on a LinkedIn article has the same size as that of a link shared on LinkedIn – 520 pixels wide by 272 pixels tall.
