Cheat Sheet: Top Social Media Photo Sizes for Your Convenience

DIY Sprocket Solutions

In looking back over nearly six years of articles, it’s about time for a revamp for some of my most popular posts. For those of you who want to ‘make it’ on all the top social media sites. It would be nice to have a cheat sheet handy of the standard photo sizes for these sites, wouldn’t it? Well in that case, you’re welcome! No need to start a riot with all the applause; really, it was my pleasure. Here are the updated 2018 Social Media platform image sizes!

Now you will have no excuse. Seriously, you no longer have any excuse for giant blurred out graphics or itty bitty “is that an ant or my Aunt Marge?” photos. I’m telling you what sizes you need right here. If I can do it, you can do it. Drumroll please!
