Looking to change your cover photo or upload an event image for Facebook?

There are sizes for that.

Looking to change your Instagram profile photo or post a photo to an Instagram story? 

There are sizes for that too. 

Sprout Social keeps an updated list of many of the main social platforms your staff is probably using. It’s a good idea to know the sizes of image spaces so you don’t get odd crops when you add or swap out your visuals.
