Social Media Image Sizes - A Quick Guide


Social Media Photo Sizes - Creationz Marketing

When starting out on your socia media journey, it is important to make sure you get the basics right and one of the most common areas I see businesses struggling with is making sure image sizes are correct on each platform.

Each platform has a different size for your logo and / or cover photo and there is nothing worse than leaving an image to chance and it being stretched and re-sized beyond your control.

With this is mind, I have added the sizes for each platform below as a handy guide to start you on your journey.  Remember, a picture says a thousand words - make it count!
