The Ultimate Social Media Image, Video and Post Size Guide [Infographic]

When it comes time to upload images to the various social media networks, most people just grab their image and throw it up there.  While this often works, just as often it can result in issues where the image isn’t cropped properly, has details covered by overlapping elements, or just doesn’t share properly in feeds.  Determining the proper image post size for destinations such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are crucial to ensuring that your social media branding is tight and cohesive.

So, what is the proper post size for Facebook images?  What is the correct Twitter header image resolution?  What is the best image size and dimensions for uploading to Instagram?  And if you’re really adventurous, what is the image size and resolution for a Snapchat geofilter?
