When creating a new post, you might want to think about the size of the image uploaded to that post, and how it will appear in the Content Library.


If you create posts to accommodate all networks, we recommend 1100 x 550 pixels. The maximum file size our platform supports for images is 4 megabytes.

Below are the optimal suggestions for image sizing for each social network, but not absolutely necessary:


  • Shared Image: 1,200 x 630

  • Shared Link: 1,200 x 628


  • 440 x 220 pixels (a 2:1 ratio)

  • Maximum to appear expanded 1024 x 512 pixels


  • Stories: 1080 x 1920


  • Shared Image or Link: 1104 x 736


In order to ensure that your image will not be cut off on desktop for LinkedIn and Facebook, you can choose an image that has a 2:1 ratio, where the width is twice the size of the height.

For Instagram, the image ratio is not that important as users will have the ability to resize photos within their account.
