Sizes for Images on Social Media

As authors we are utilizing social media left and right.  It is frustrating for most of us because we aren’t computer ninja’s.  Here is a handy cheat sheet that tells you what sizes (in pixels) of image work best on what type of social media.  So you don’t have to pull your hair out tinkering, resizing, re-uploading and spending half the night to get it right.

Louise Myers over at Visual Social Media gave permission for me to share this with you.  You will probably love this and want to check out some of her other posts.  So I’m going to put the link here to her home page too.    Her site is here.

Here is the cheat sheet:

Free Classes on Buffer & Social Media

Buffer Logo from Media KitA lot of authors and bloggers alike are trying to get the most out of their time and efforts utilizing social media.  I received an email yesterday about some free help. 30 minute classes – short and sweet.  Please note if you can’t make the time of the class you want- do go ahead and register anyway.  They will do a recording – but they only send that to the folks that registered (if I am reading the email correctly).

Here is a link to get you to the registration page for some FREE classes in social media!

Here’s what the email said…
