Image sizing is so important! I’m constantly looking up what sizes to make each image so it will be more appealing for each different social media outlet, it’s so great to have everything here in one post, thanks <3
This is so great! I always find that I crop an image to what I think it should be and it doesn’t always look right.

I never really thought about the size of my social media sizing. I guess I’ll have to re-look at mine.

This is great information! Sometimes when I’m designing the photo for my social media sites, all I need is the right dimensions of what the photos should be! This would come in handy for sure!
This is a handy tool. I know that I struggle making sure that my images would work correctly on each site.
This is a great little cheat sheet to have on hand! I often need a reminder when editing pictures for different kinds of social media.

I need to use this chart when I post photos! All the time I am making them to big and then they don’t show up right!!
This is great info to have! It’s so nice to have a sheet with all the image sizes that are perfect for each kind of social media.
Oh my gosh this is so great to have! Thanks so much!

I don’t really put that much thought into this…maybe because I don’t depend on my Blog for monetary gain? It’s only a hobby 😉
This is SO awesome to know. I’m always googling the sizes for sharing and also for headers etc. So I’m going to be saving this!

Size is definitely important! You can’t make the same size pictures for each social media site. Thanks for creating this – I’ll definitely refer back to it often.
This post is super helpful! It needs to be printed out and framed by the computer, haha!
Glad it will help you Tiffany 🙂
