The best social media image sizes


Whether you’re choosing an image to share, want to add a new profile picture, change your cover photo or add any other social media image, it’s important to get the dimensions right. Every social media platform uses different image dimensions and every platform scales the dimensions to a different size. To get the best result, you will have to scale your images multiple times.

It’s useful to have an overview of the right dimensions per medium. Therefore, we have prepared one for you.
