Have you ever uploaded a photo on your social media profiles with a size different you wanted? You must pay attention to the size of the images and prepare them correctly before uploading them. Below, you will find a list of recommended measures to avoid these errors, updated for 2021.

Facebook image and video sizes

When uploading photos to Facebook, the platform automatically resize and format them. To make sure they are displayed in the highest possible quality, try these sizes:

Profile and cover images

Images posts

Instagram image and video sizes

Images publications


The video must have a minimum resolution of 720 px. If it lasts 10 minutes or less, their maximum size should be 650 MB, and those up to 60 minutes, 3.6 GB. Remember also that the file format must be MP4, its cover image must be 420 x 654 px, and that the previews will be of 4:5 centered crop. Finally, keep in mind that the maximum duration of the video, if uploading it from your mobile, will be of only 15 minutes.

Profile image
: the aspect ratio of a profile image is 110 x 110 px or 180 x 180 px, regardless of its original quality version. Therefore, its ideal size should be much larger to avoid low pixels. In other words, this should be a perfectly square image with no space.

Instagram ads

When creating an ad in the ad creation tool, you can crop the image to ensure that the look of your Instagram ad is what you want.
