The Ultimate facebook and instagram Image Size Guide
Have you taken what you thought was to be the best Instagram photo ever, only to find most of it cut off when you post it? Well, if you knew the correct sizes needed, then your photo masterpiece would actually be seen the way you intended it. More importantly than a single post, using correctly sized images boosts the optimization of your page. The ‘Gram isn’t the only social network to have specific dimensions for photos you post or update your profile with. So, in order for your business to look its best at all times, we’ve compiled a list of Facebook and Instagram media image sizes to ensure your images look spectacular.
Facebook image sizes
Even the largest social media network has some very specific requirements – especially when it comes to image sizes. When someone is looking to find out more about your business, there’s a very good chance that they will try to find you on Facebook, so you best have your profile and photos properly setup. Other than the obvious (your profile picture and cover photo) there are a couple of more sizes to take into account. Specific images to be on the lookout for are groups and events, as they have their own specific dimensions. Of course, the photo itself is yours for the choosing, so make sure it’s alluring.
Profile photo: minimum of 180 x 180 px Cover photo: 820 x 310 Link post: 1,200 x 628 Photo: 1,200 x 628 Group cover photo: 1,640 x 859 Event cover photo: 1,920 x 1,080
