Today, I’d love to share with you the perfect sizes for images and photos you can use on LinkedIn.
Everyone loves images ❤️
I love, my colleagues love, everyone loves (except my friend, nothing special – he is just a super boring guy 🤣).
So there is no sense to describe how images are important on social media.
But there is one issue with that is – sizes… IMAGE SIZES! 😡
Every time I tried to update my cover (background) image on my LinkedIn profile – I prepared an awesome image, typed an impressive text and due to LinkedIn image sizes the part of my text or image was cut 😒.
For example, my first version of my cover image without me 😓:
So every time I need to create an image for my LinkedIn posts, I always went to Google to find the right image size dimensions.

What tool use to create images for LinkedIn:
I highly recommend using Crello to create images for your LinkedIn content. It’s easy-to use and super simple. You can also use a Venngage – poster maker tool to create stunning images for your LinkedIn content. Another great editing tool we love is Instasize, which is great for finding the exact image size you need.
I love this tool, so I even added to my top 7 LinkedIn Marketing Tools I can’t live without.
For example, it takes just a few minutes to create simple images, just don’t forget to choose right size dimensions.
