Image sizes across all social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (X) all vary in size.

It is important to use images which are the correct size to prevent pixelated, low quality graphics, which in-turn will make your channels appear much less professional. If your images aren’t the right size, there are a number of options that you can use to resize your images – many of them free.
