Facebook, Twitter and now Pinterest too: Your social media image size cheat sheet

Images give your social media more impact, so one of the most important things you can do is keep track of image spec requirements for all your social media content. For instance, the Facebook cover photo size is different from the Twitter header image size, which are both vastly different from photo dimensions for Pinterest.

So we created this handy social media image size guide. We’ll update this post anytime dimensions change, so you can always count on the correct dimensions.
