Did you know that every social networking site displays your images a little differently? An image that works well on Facebook won’t necessarily be right for Pinterest or Google+. Each network has its own optimal image size, so you may want to have more than one image displayed on your posts in order to offer your readers a selection that works well across a range of social media.
Best Size for Pinterest Images
You may have noticed that this week I’ve begun adding some tall graphics at the beginning of some of my posts. These gigantic images were created specifically for Pinterest. They’re made to fit the Pinterest grid, and are 736 x 1102 px.
There’s actually a range of acceptable image sizes for Pinterest, with a width of 600 px being the smallest and 736 px being the widest that can be accommodated. Pinterest likes an aspect ratio of 2:3. So you can calculate the ideal height for your image, based on its width.
I’ll be writing more about this at a later date, but I thought you might want to know a little about it now. Consider this the intro, or the heads up!
