Images are powerful. They can evoke emotions, leave the viewer in awe, and inspire millions. But if the image is pixelated, stretched, or just plain blurry, it can cause anger. Disgust. Turmoil.
So, it’s important to have your images sized, cropped, and looking their best for the world to see. What kind of impression would you get if you visited a brand page (or any page for that matter) and were greeted with some grainy, outdated picture? You’d instantly judge the brand. You’d think the brand was second-rate, not concerning themselves with their online presence.
It goes without saying that your online presence as a brand should be a top priority. Part of that presence is how it looks visually across your social media accounts.
We’ve compiled this post to provide you with the most up-to-date image sizes and dimensions, so you can be sure you’re uploading with the confidence that the picture will look great. We’ll continue to update this page when dimensions change - they always do. You can trust us to always be up-to-date. Enjoy!
