TWITTER IMAGE SIZE ADVICE
Profile photo: 400 x 400 pixels (100 KB maximum file size)
It is often said that the “first impression is the last impression”!
Your Twitter profile photo is your primary identifying brand that will be visible to everyone. It will be visible on your home page, on the Twitter stream of your followers every time you tweet, etc.
As it represents you or your brand, the image must be of the highest quality.
Photo header: 1,500 x 500 pixels (a maximum file size of 10 MB)
You can use an eye-catching creative image for your high-resolution header photo on your Twitter profile page. As a business, the photo of the header of your Twitter page should be synchronized with your logo, slogan and brand.
In-stream photo: 440 x 220 pixels (a maximum file size of 5 MB for photos and a file size of 3 MB for animated gifs)
You can post up to four pictures along with your tweets on this platform. For each in-stream image, an image link is created that takes up the space of Twitter characters. You simply need to maintain the 2: 1 ratio of the images, which can be reduced to a smaller version so that it effectively adjusts to your follower’s transmission.
FACEBOOK IMAGE SIZE TIPS
Cover photo: 828 x 315 pixels (a preferred maximum file size of 100 KB)
You can edit and add creative images such as your cover photo that represent you or your company in the right direction. Try to maintain a minimum size of approximately 399 x 150 pixels.
Profile Image: 180 x 180 pixels
Unlike the cover photo, which only appears on your Facebook page, your Facebook profile photo will be displayed on your page, in the posts you comment on, in the timelines of others you publish messages in, search results for Facebook Open Graph, etc. .
In short, it represents you in most places on the largest social networking platform.
Shared image: 1,200 x 630 pixels
You can engage your friends or business followers in meaningful conversations by sharing useful pictures on your Facebook timeline. These will appear in the news of your friends and followers. See this publication for more information about image sizes for Facebook
IMAGE CALCULATION GUIDELINES FOR GOOGLE +
Profile Image: 250 x 250 pixels
Again, this image will be your identity on the Google+ network. Although the dimensions are for a square image, your Google+ profile photo appears as a circle. Therefore, you should take special care of how your image looks without cutting out the important parts.
Cover image: 1 080 x 608 pixels
You can use a large image that represents your brand, logo, and business slogan as your Google+ cover image.
Picture shared: 497 x 373 pixels
You can share images in your Google+ posts and indicate the specific “circles” with which you want to share the image and to whom they may be most relevant. Remember, such images (along with associated text) are likely to appear in the Google search engine for search queries related to your publications or business.
IMAGE SIZE RULES OF INSTAGRAM
Profile Image: 110 x 110 pixels
Photo size: 1080 x 1080 pixels
Photo thumbnail: 161 x 161 pixels
For all types of Instagram images, you need to maintain an aspect ratio of 1: 1. Then, all your images will appear in square dimensions. You should be especially careful with the quality of the image because the limited text content is shared on this platform. It is more about images and graphics!
PICTURE SIZES RECOMMENDED FOR PINTEREST
Profile Image: 165 x 165 pixels
A Pinterest profile image may not be as important as that of Facebook or Twitter profile images. However, you still need to use a good one. After all, anyone who gets to your board or through keyword search will probably also take a look at your profile.
Screen image of the board: 222 x 150 pixels
Use eye-catching images to post on relevant Pinterest boards.
Sizes of the pins: a width of 238 pixels (with height of scale)
Although these are the dimensions of your Pinterest pins, the expanded pins will have a minimum width of 600 pixels. You can post larger images (since you only set the width, while the length can be scaled more up) for a better compromise and more re-pins or like.
OPTIMIZATION RULES FOR TUMBLR IMAGE SIZES
Profile Image: 128 x 128 pixels
You can use a good square profile image that represents you or your business on Tumblr. It will appear on your profile page next to the “follow” button when someone arrives on your page and as thumbnails next to your posts in your followers’ feeds.
Image publications: 500 x 750 pixels
You can publish images with file sizes up to 10 MB (with the exception of animated gifs that should not be more than 1 MB). Therefore, you can upload really high quality images for your Tumblr publications.
YOUTUBE PICTURE SIZE GUIDELINES
Image of the channel cover: 2560 x 1440 pixels (for desktop computer), 1855 x 423 pixels (for tablets), 1546 x 423 pixels (for smartphones) and 2560 x 1440 pixels (for TV)
Sizes are optimized for different platforms, since YouTube videos are often streamed through any of the platforms mentioned above. In addition, the cover image of the video channel should tell you more about the type of videos that you can probably see on your channel.
Uploading videos: 1 280 x 760 pixels
You know that YouTube is a place to share videos and not one to share images. Therefore, you must maintain this resolution (aspect ratio of approximately 16: 9) for the videos you upload.
