Social Media Graphic Size Guide

Have you ever put hours of work into creating a design for your client’s Facebook or Instagram posts, and then the picture you’ve created becomes stretched or is pixelated after they’ve posted it? It’s embarrassing when that happens and your client isn’t able to use your graphic to its fullest potential.

With the huge number of social media platforms, it might get hard to constantly keep up and remember all the right picture sizes for all of them. But don’t worry, we got you!

We’ve compiled a list of Facebook and Instagram image sizes for both organic and paid so you never have to go through that again. Bookmark this article so it will be just a click away the next time you design a social media post.
