The 2016 Social Media Image Sizes Cheat Sheet

The 2016 Social Media Image Sizes Cheat Sheet infographic

Sometimes, one image size doesn't fit all. The 2016 Social Media Image Sizes Cheat Sheet from Hub Spot will help you optimize your images for all of your social media sites.

When you're designing cover photos, graphics, and other social media assets, sometimes knowing the bare bones image dimensions isn't enough.

What if you wanted to place text or an arrow on your Facebook cover photo without it getting covered by the profile photo? And what about the shared link thumbnails on Facebook or in-stream photos on Twitter ... how big should those be?

These change so often, a current infographic guide like this is always helpful.

Very helpful in adjusting image sizes when uploading in social media profiles with resizing the images, Thank You for sharing.

Always great to get the latest compilation of the social media sizes - I have to say there is nothing more infuriating than having an image wrongly sized when you post it on social media.

This is very useful thanks. Anybody know if it is still valid in 2017 or have any of the sizes changed?

They are constantly changing, so you need to find a current one. I know of this one from 2017, but there are others as well: The 2017 Social Media Image Sizes Guide: https://makeawebsitehub.com/social-media-image-sizes-cheat-sheet/
