Always Upload In the Correct Size With This Handy Social Media Cheat Sheet…

By Anthony Thurston on July 11th 2014

Facebook, Pinterest, Youtube…trying to keep image sizes straight between all of the various social networks that we each participate in on a daily basis can be a pain. Luckily, this cheat sheet put together by Constant Contact is a great way to keep them all straight so you always upload in the optimal image size.

Of course, in the never same for long world of social media, image standards are constantly being updated or improved, but a cheat sheet like this is still a great way to keep the various image requirements straight.


The trick I use to make things like this easy is to make export presets for Lightroom, and then just updating them whenever the social network changes their optimal image update settings. A good cheat sheet like this is a great base to build some export presets off.

    My research shows that Google+ allows a shared image to be 2048 on the long edge. Even bigger if you allow the image to count against your data allotment.

    This infographic is not accurate.

    What about 500px, what’s the perfect size?

  4. Jacob Jexmark

    The FB sizes are wrong for images. Keep the longest side at 2048px or 960px.

      Yes, that’s what I was alluding to. 2048 for FB right? That’s what I do.
      …maybe then some of those other listed sizes are wrong too.

    Nice, I’ll build some export presets from this. Will take me a few weeks because I’m out of the office until later this month.

    I don’t understand. What happens if I upload images to FB at 2048?
