Figuring out the right image sizes to use when posting and sharing things on social media has become increasingly confounding. Every social network has its own set of specifications, size limits and dimensions.

Did you know, for instance the optimal sizes for a Facebook image is 2048 x 2048 pixels?

For personal use, it may not matter so much if your face is all stretched out or you're a tiny spec of a thumbnail, but if you're running a business and using social media for promotion, it's important that your images look right - whether you're on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Tumblr, Instagram or Pinterest (and possibly you're on all seven major social outlets).

So instead of making search all over the Internet, or use trial and error, we've created this cheat sheet to put all the optimal image sizes for sharing on social media, whichever network you choose. Take a look below and share our infographic so that your friends and colleagues can stop struggling with images too.
