What size should my image be?

July 1st, 2015 by hutdogs

Images are important on Social Media.  An interesting image on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterst or Instagram can generate a lot of engagement.

Unfortunately one size does not fit all.  The same size image on Facebook might cut off someone’s head on Twitter.  Getting the right size can be tricky if you are trying to eye ball it.  It’s best to stick with these dimensions:

  • Twitter: 1024 x 512
  • Facebook Post: 940×788
  • Facebook Ad: 1200×627
  • Instagram: 640×640
  • Email Header: 600×200
  • Pinterest: 800×2000
