Social Media Image Sizes Cheat Sheet 2016

I’m always on the lookout for infographics that show the latest, greatest sizes for images on the major social networks.

A wonderful infographic from the folks at Custom Creatives Digital Marketing arrived in my inbox. They gave me permission to reprint it below.

The timing is perfect, because I’m planning my social strategy for next year. I hope you are, too! Knowing the correct image sizes to upload is an important part of that strategy.

I want to help you create your entire blogging and social media strategy. So I created a free, 10-page action plan that you can use, along with today’s infographic, to do some serious planning.

Your Blog and Social Media Business Plan | BloggingBistro.comImage sizes for the following networks are listed:

  1. Twitter
  2. Facebook – Includes current images sizes, effective since Facebook’s Page redesign in August 2016. One change to the size listed on the infographic: The cover photo that displays across the top of your Facebook page should be 828 x 475 px. Mobile cover graphics display differently than desktop graphics; this size will ensure that your graphic displays properly on all devices.
  3. Google+
  4. Instagram
  5. Pinterest
  6. Tumblr
  7. YouTube
  8. LinkedIn

  • This is great- thanks for putting it together. Quick question- does this have the correct pinterest board size since they have updated it? Cheers

  • That’s a very good question; thanks for asking. The size the cover image on each board displays has recently been reduced from 217 x 146 pixels to 214 x 100 pixels (or proportionally larger, such as 736 x 347 pixels).

    If you’ve uploaded a picture that’s not that size and want to use it as the cover for a board, edit the board, then click “Change” next to “Cover.” You can then scroll through several images you’ve recently uploaded to that board. Once you find one you want, you can drag it around the space until you get it to display as well as it can. Click “Save Changes,” and then click “Save.”

    Also, the profile photos for Pinterest have increased from 165 x 165px to 180 x 180px.

    The optimal size for a pinned image is 736 pixels wide x 1104 – 2,061 pixels tall.

  • Excellent info- Thank you!
