Ideally, before uploading images to your social media channels for use in your headers and logo display (your profile), it’s a good idea to prepare your images carefully in advance. This usually requires some image editing software such as Pixlr Editor or Adobe Photoshop Elements.
The sizes are constantly changing and there’s not always a definitive size specified but currently the sizes below are recommended by ourselves. This way, you’ll avoid any pixellation and present the best quality of images.
You’ll find the results are usually much more pleasing to the eye and professional. These specifications change all the time so keep an eye out for future changes.
