Updated Social Media Size Guide on 24/8/2021
Our social media size guide will help you to create content that is optimized for user experience on the various social media platforms.
If you are creating content for social media, you probably have noticed that different platforms have different formats (e.g. Instagram has a feed, Instagram stories, Instagram Reels, IGTV, etc.). And different formats might have different recommended dimensions to create the best possible user experience. That can be confusing in the beginning which is why we put together a straight forward social media size guide for you.
Use the recommended social media dimensions!
Do use the dimensions that the platforms recommend. Nowadays, you don’t have to be a designer with expensive software to crop images and videos. A tool like Canva or Sproutsocial for example will do the trick just fine! Using the recommended dimensions for social media platforms means you are creating the best possible user experience.
It does not make much sense to use a 16:9 landscape video for an Instagram Reel. We therefore strongly urge you to make the most of the visual real estate the platform gives you. So if Instagram gives you a whole screen full of content space for their Reels format (9:16), you better use it!
Best for Cross-Platform
Keep in mind that you always should aim for using the right dimensions for each format of your social media paltform. But if – for some reason -you really need to find a one size fits all dimension, for us, that would be 1:1 (or square – where the pixels are the same for width and height). A convenient shotgun-approach format, as we call it. You will definitely hit something because it comes across nice enough on all platforms.
