How to size your images for social media: A cheat sheet

Last week, artist Harriete Estel Berman sent me a tweet asking me to share some information she discovered – a guide to images for social media titled: How to size images on social media: A cheat sheet.

Harriete stated that it “Usually it takes me multiple tries till I figure out what size image will  work…a huge waste of time. Next time, I will refer to this chart.This cheat sheet is a super fantastic resource because it removes the trial and error in creating a fabulous background or header. An eye-catching image is a great way to build visibility for your art or crafts creating a personal style across all platforms. For artists and makers this is absolutely essential!”

Infographics may be all the rage, but this one is actually useful. The Cheat Sheet was created by LunaMetrics—who invite you to print it out and share. View the entire Cheat Sheet sizing chart here.

Includes image sizing for all the biggies–Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest and LinkedIN. Here is just the upper part of the Cheat Sheet:
