I don’t know about you but sometimes I get super frustrated trying to find the right picture for each of my social media platforms. Then on top of finding the right picture you have to know what size to make the picture. It gets to be a little bit too much! So I did some research via: Social Media Examiner, and found the ideal size images you need for some of the most popular platforms. To help you out even more I’ve created a downloadable PDF file with the same information.
