2018 Social Media Image Sizes to Help You Look Your Best on Your Social Media Platforms!
Why Are 2018 Social Media Image Sizes Important?
One of the biggest concerns many of our clients have regarding social media is the quality of their images. We often hear that images appear fuzzy, are getting cropped or squashed in weird ways, and generally don’t look their best. While the actual image quality can be a contributing factor the bigger problem are all the different image sizes! Every social platform or network has its own set of image sizes and guidelines. And often these guidelines get tweaked without notice. To help you look your best here is what you need to know about 2018 social media image sizes.
I can hear some of you say that you already have the image sizes; you got them from a previous post or came across them online a while back. You may want to toss those out! Not only do image sizes change, but as new social platforms gain popularity there are also new social media image sizes to consider. So simply finding the correct image sizes can be a challenge! To help you do better here is a comprehensive infographic listing all 2018 social media image sizes from the nice folks at Make a Website Hub.

A Few Thoughts on 2018 Social Media Image Sizes
Simply because some of these 2018 social media image sizes may have changed a bit doesn’t mean you now have to go and optimize or replace all the images you are already using on your social profiles and networks. Of course, if you have some real doozies you may want to replace them right away. Otherwise use this guide for future reference as you add new images.
And I should point out that using the correct image size for your social media images is only part of the game. You should also consider if the images you are using meet your brand and business objectives? For the best results you should only use high quality images that clearly present your company brand and values. Avoid using stock images if you can. Hiring a professional photographer may cost more money, but the investment will be well worth it.
