INFOGRAPHIC: Ad Dimensions for Social Media

Cheat sheets for social media image dimensions are useful especially for companies, businesses, and individuals looking to advertise their brand through social media. Designers doing the graphics should also know this, of course. Knowing the right image dimensions for each social media site is essential so as not to ruin the quality of the image that will be uploaded online, and to promote the brand, product, or service beautifully and with no destructive distortions.


Our graphic design team at MicroCreatives handles branding and creative marketing projects, along with other digital and print design projects, including creating graphics for social media marketing. For such projects, we keep design templates for each dimension. Our copywriters/content managers are also informed of the different ad sizes to know how much content or copy should be put in the image.
