The Ultimate Cheat Sheet to Social Media Image Sizes

A few months ago, we shared an infographic called The Pinterest Cheat Sheet to Image Sizes. It was very well-received and widely shared.

 

 

A few weeks ago, I came across a similar infographic that is basically the Pinterest Cheat Sheet on steroids. Thanks to the awesome people at Omnicore Agency, we’re now able to share an infographic that has ideal image dimensions for not just one, but ALL the major social media sites. They’ve appropriately named it, “The Essential Social Media Design & Sizing Cheat Sheet”.

If you want a summary of the most important info, scroll down to the bottom of this post.

    Love this article – very helpful. However, the Pinterest profile photo is getting cut off in those dimensions! I’ve tried resizing a few times but the bottom keeps getting cut off! Has this happened to you? Any suggestions?
