With all the recent changes to our favorite (or not so favorite) social networks with Facebook covers, Twitter header images and YouTube branded channels, businesses have had to redesign their images and rethink of how they represent themselves visually online.

This gave way to a lot of new creative campaigns on Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest but is has led to a lot of social media managers scrambling to get the images just right.

Earlier this month LunaMetrics released an updated version of their widely popular Social Media Sizing cheat sheet with image and video sizes for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, LinkedIn and Pinterest. Though I bookmarked it, I thought it was actually too valuable a resource to keep to myself.

So before you post your next picture or change up your profile image, take a look at this handy cheat sheet and bookmark it for yourself.

This is a very useful and detailed post.

In some other articles the recommendation for LinkedIn Spotlight Banners (or Company Page Banners) is 640x220px .

I am wondering why the recommendation here is 646x220px?

I think a few of the LinkedIn dimensions need updating. The Careers image is 970x240, NOT 974x238. The Products & Services banner is 640x222px, not 646x220px.

Great article, though!

Thanks! It's awesome to have all of this in one place. One problem, though...Pinterest won't let me Pin it! Well, it does, but the image doesn't show up. Ironic - and unfortunate - given the subject. Thanks for the good content, though!

It seems like LinkedIn's sizing shifts. Also, does anyone have a good sense of the optimum file size -- we find that LinkedIn compresses files substantially upon upload so our nice crisp images end up fuzzier than a newborn bear.

Great stuff. Thanks for posting. At the risk of being attached with the saying, "give an inch, take a mile", is there any software tool / website that accepts an original image with its native size and produces "copies" with these different sizes? After all, knowing the different sizes is one thing but producing images in conformance with them is a lot bigger pain area for most digital marketers (including me).
