A Designer’s Guide to Social Media

A Designer’s Guide to Social Media.

How many times have you needed to find out the size for images or videos in social sites? For me…many. I have gone back and forth to find the sizes and then worked out the design. Then I had to go to other sites and do the same thing. It became very frustrating.

So…I compiled a list of sizes from various social site to make it easier.

All sizes are in pixels.
