Tracking down dimensions for social media post across 20 different forums and websites can be tedious - so here's a guide with some helpful templates. Unfortunately, these will likely be irrelevant in another month when one of these sites is sure to make changes :)

 

If you'd like to skip this pretty formatting and head straight to a sweet spreadsheet by Sprout Social, click here!

Youtube DIMENSIONS

Videos

Most common sizes: 1920x1080 or 1280x720

 

Video Thumbnails

Channel Cover

This one is tricky, bear with me:

  • Full size cover is 2560x1440

  • For viewing on a computer monitor, the size is 2560x423

  • For viewing on Tablet, the size is 1855x423

  • For viewing on any device, the size is 1546x423

So here's what that means. Upload an image that is 2560x1440, but fit all the important information within 1546x423. See the image example below:
