Insta Sizes Infographic

Instagram Square photo size

Instagram’s standard photo size for feed posts and carousels is square, which is 1080px x 1080px (1:1 aspect ratio). You should always consider how your Instagram image will look in square preview, as this will always be the size of the preview image on your feed.

What image sizes can you post on Facebook?

Facebook will resize your photos no matter what you upload so that the image is 500px wide, which is worth remembering when you upload, as you don’t want your photos to compress and the quality to decrease. Below are the ideal sizes you should upload per photo type, in order to maintain maximum resolution.

Facebook Horizontal photo size – Horizontal photos and photos you attach to a link you post should be 1200px x 630px (1.91:1 aspect ratio).

What image sizes can you post on LinkedIn?

LinkedIn’s platform suggests images with an aspect ratio between 3:1 and 2:3 and images with at least 552px x 368px. You can upload larger files by doubling the dimensions, which will ensure that your images don’t compress or reduce in quality size.

What image sizes can you post on YouTube?

The ideal YouTube image thumbnail size is 1280px x 720px (16:9 aspect ratio) with a minimum width of 640px.

What image sizes can you post on Twitter?

If you want your full image to show in a Twitter timeline, your post needs to be at an aspect ratio of either 2:1 or 3:4. Take a look at the different image sizes for Twitter below.

Twitter Landscape image size1200px x 675px (16:9 aspect ratio)

Twitter Carousel image size1200px 675px (16:9 aspect ratio)

Twitter links that contain images – 800px x 418px (1.91:1 aspect ratio)

What image sizes can you post on Pinterest?

Pinterest recommends that images uploaded to the platform should be 1000px x 1500px or at a 2:3 aspect ratio. This is important to stick to, as Pinterest’s algorithm will penalize images that are low quality or too large.

What image sizes can you post on TikTok?

Although TikTok’s purpose is video content, you might find yourself uploading images to the software to include in your videos. And, when they aren’t the right size, your image will either appear with a large border around it or too zoomed in.

If you are uploading images to a TikTok video, make sure the ratio is 1080px x 1320px (9:16 aspect ratio).
