Social Media Image Size Cheat Sheet

Twitter header image size.

  • The ideal image size for your Twitter header photo is 1500px by 500px.
  • Keep in mind that header photos display differently on various devices. You may experience cropping of around 60px on both the top and bottom of your header photo, so keep any important information near the center.
  • Don’t forget that your profile photo will also block part of your header in the lower-left corner, so avoid putting any key visual information there.
  • Twitter supports images that are JPEG, GIF, or PNG file formats.
  • If you experience any errors in the upload process, be sure your browser is up-to-date, or try using a different browser.

Twitter profile image size.

  • The ideal image size for your Twitter profile image is 400px by 400px.
  • Your profile picture will be uploaded as a square, but it’s actually displayed as a circle throughout the site. Make sure that your image maintains its integrity when cropped into a circle. If you lose any important details in the cropping process, try using a different one.
  • Twitter supports images that are JPEG, GIF, or PNG file formats.
  • The maximum file size for a profile image is 2 MB.

If you need further guidance with customizing your profile, read Twitter’s tips for building up your profile. Or, if you’re looking for help troubleshooting with uploading your profile image, explore more detailed suggestions from Twitter’s help page.

Twitter in-stream image size.

  • In-stream images are displayed at a 16:9 ratio of 600px by 335px and can be clicked and expanded up to 1200px by 675px.
  • This means is that you can upload any shape photo, be it square, vertical, or horizontal. It will just be cropped in a 600px by 335px preview in-stream and display in full once clicked on.
  • For best results, make sure your image is no larger than 5 MB.
  • Twitter supports in-stream images that are JPEG, GIF, or PNG file formats.
  • If you’re uploading GIFs, go for one that loops. Twitter supports looping GIFs. Any GIFs that are not set to loop will display as a static image.

Twitter ads image size.

  • Images in both standard and promotional Tweets should be at least 600px wide. Aim for something closer to 1200px for the highest quality. Any height is acceptable up to a 1:1 ratio.
  • On a desktop, images are accepted between a 2:1 and 1:1 ratio. On mobile, images are displayed at a 16:9 ratio.
  • You can post up to four photos in a single tweet.
  • Twitter supports in-stream images that are JPEG, GIF, or PNG file formats.
  • For best results, make sure your image is no larger than 5 MB.
  • Animated GIFs cannot be included in tweets with multiple images.

Facebook Profile and Cover Photo Dimensions

Most businesses use this space for their logo rather than a person’s photo. However, if your business is run by you and only you, using a photo of yourself might not be a bad idea.

As for your cover photo, you’ll notice that your desktop display looks a little different from your mobile device. That’s because Facebook is trying to create a better experience for users depending on the device they’re on.

In order to cater to both mobile and desktop displays, we recommend keeping the safe zones in mind:

  • 90 px on both the right and left sides of the image are visible on desktop
  • 24 px on both the top and bottom of the image are visible on mobile

Facebook Shared Image Dimensions

These images appear both on your timeline and in most of your followers’ news feeds. With the decline of Facebook’s organic reach, try asking your fans to like or share your photos to gain visibility without a significant financial investment. Or consider paying a small fee to boost your posts to ensure that your audience sees it in their feed.

Facebook Shared Link Photo Dimensions

If you’re sharing a link to your business’ Facebook Page, there are a few more elements to consider and formats to choose from. When you paste a link into your status, depending on the size of the images on the web page, you’ll be prompted to include a carousel of up to 10 images. You also have the option of sharing the link without using the image—which can come in handy if you’d rather upload a new image to share with the link instead.
