Image Size for SNS. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and google+

When posting photos and images on social media (image size for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), are you aware of the “size” of the images?

Recently, the images on Facebook and Twitter profiles have been updated to round shapes, so I think you may have already changed the images. Even if the appearance changes greatly and you have good manuscripts and creative materials, you will not be able to achieve the effect as eye-catching if the size of the image and OGP to be posted at the same time is not appropriate. Therefore, this time we investigated the image size when posting on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.


Twitter profile and posted image size

According to Twitter’s Help Center ( :

  • Twitter recommended size is 1500 x 500 pixels

【profile image】

  • Recommended Twitter size: 400 x 400 pixels
  • Capacity: less than 2MB
  • Format: JPG / PNG

The profile will be trimmed into a circle, so if you use a logo, etc., keep it within the circle.

  • 2: 1 PC size (timeline display: 506 x 253 pixels)
  • The size of the smartphone becomes 16: 9 (timeline display: 450 x 253 pixels)

The recommended upload image size of is 640 x 360 pixels that cannot be cut with the first view of a PC and smartphone.

About Facebook page profile and post image size

According to the information in the help center on the Facebook page :

【profile image】

  • PC displays 170 x 170 pixels
  • The smartphone displays 128 x 128 pixels
  • 36 x 36-pixel display on Future phone

Uploading with the display size is too small and the image quality deteriorates, so if the square is within 320 x 320 pixels to a maximum of 960 x 960 pixels, you can upload with an image that maintains the resolution. Advertisements and posts will be trimmed in a circular shape, so be sure to use a circular design, similar to Twitter.

  • PC is an 820 x 312-pixel display
  • The smartphone displays 640 x 360 pixels
  • The minimum size is 400 x 150 pixels or more

Creatives need to be positioned so that the image does not break when viewed from both PC and smartphone. The recommended upload size is 828 pixels wide x 315 pixels high, especially for large PCs. Instead, be careful not to place logos, service names, etc. on both sides, as the display area on the smartphone is 640 x 315 pixels wide. When creating an image around the smartphone size width 828 × height of 466 pixels in the width 828 × height of 315 pixels it is recommended to place the creative range. In this case, the upper and lower pixels are cut off on the PC screen.

If the width is 1080 × 566 pixels in height, the resolution will be 1080p × 1350 pixels in height and the resolution will be maintained, so you can post in high quality. If you use a non-square image, you can automatically crop it to a supported aspect ratio when posting.
