What's the correct image size for your post?

Sometimes, we all get it wrong on social media. We upload a 1920 x 1080 photo on Facebook, only to get downscaled and downsized, and often pixelated. Or, we upload the same photo to Instagram, expecting it to get posted with exactly the same resolution, only to be cropped and resized. Well, say no more. Here's an infographic from AgencyAnalytics as they share insights on uploading the right image dimensions for each social media platform you use.

    People are often concerned about the picture size that appears on the timeline or feed. The ideal image size for social media posts varies for different social media platforms. I think for Instagram is 1,080 x 1,080 pixels. For Facebook, it is 1,200 x 628. Consider the height, width, and orientation of the picture when deciding to size your picture.

      You didn't bother to look at the original post. If you had, you'd know the sizes, you'd not have to guess anymore.


      You'd benefit from taking in the original post.

    I needed this when I first got into marketing. I'd have a giant photo optimized for print, but posted it online, and would be shocked when the image was too big.

    Talking about the size of posts:

    I've been using Facebook Groups to market some offline services. I've realized that, when page posts are shared on groups, they can show with two different layouts:


    The right version is exactly the same way a post is shown on the page itself: text first, image later. The full text is shared on the group.

    The left version is different, it reverse the order, and put image first and text later. Also, the text is severely reduced: just the first ~25 words (around 160 characters) are shown, and the rest is hidden under a "SEE MORE" button. In the other hand, there's a "like button", increasing the number of people liking your page.


    Is there a way to chose between those two? Until now, they seen kinda random to me.
