Of course, visual effects and contents can have a great influence on the impression that the visitors will get from your pages. For this, you need to choose the right image size and a little of creativity.
Today we are going to discuss the right image sizes for social media network Linkedin.
Linkedin is a great choice for connecting with different leaders and customers and for sourcing the best employees.
Let’s get started.
Linkedin image size
Have you ever been wondering, what is the ideal Linkedin image size you can use to promote your brand?
How do you avoid your image from getting pixelated and/or stretched on your Linkedin page?
Is time to stop…
By the time you finish reading this article you will have the solution to this problem.
So, let’s discuss what the ideal size of a Linkedin image size is and how to choose it correctly.
Take the right pixels (px) for your Linkedin image
The online world requires special dimensions which are pixels, so first you need to take your attention to the right height and the width of the Linkedin image. So, if the image has the same numbers in its height and width, for example 600 x 600px, it means we have a square-like image. You can get this Linkedin image size by yourself, using some special programs, like software, or you can request one of our designers at Designer Task to do it for you.
The size of the Linkedin profile picture
But, you will ask yourself…
What is the right size for the Linkedin profile picture?
Here is the answer…
Usually, a profile picture on your Linkedin page is the first thing that the client will notice, so it needs to be ideal in its size and look. Generally the recommended size for the Linkedin page profile image is 400 x 400px. – in JPG, PNG or GIF format. The maximum size for the file needs to be 10MB. If your image size is bigger or smaller than the dimension mentioned above, than your profile look is going to fail, since your profile image will look stretched or smashed, improper for view.
Choose the right image
Someone professional in this field will take a photo of you, choosing the ideal dimensions for the Linkedin banner image, or use online applications like PicMonkey, Stencil, Snappa and Pixlr to adjust your image to the right size. You can always use Designer Task and we will create something mind-blowing for you. In this case you will be sure that the first impression on your profile design will be positive and that the first step is done.
The right Linkedin image size
Is it better to get the right Linkedin image size by yourself or with the help of a designer?
We highly recommend you to choose the second version – that is to ask to a professional designer, to get the right size for you. Here you need someone with a sharp eye and with the ability to notice the details.
The right image for the Header cover image on your profile
- The ideal dimension for the Linkedin background image is 1536 x 768px.
- The minimum size for this image is 1192 x 220px.
- The maximum size of the file is 4MB.
The look of this image is no less important than that of your Linkedin profile image. This will be noticeable to the clients entering your profile, too. For this image it is recommended to use a picture of your branding company, but, of course, if you have some other ideas about this Linkedin background image, you can search for images online to find nice and proper scenery on different websites. This will increase the chance to get a perfect look for your profile.
The profile picture and the banner image on your company page
The profile picture of your company page comes as a logo for your company. Linkedin recommends 400 x 400px for that image size. On the other hand, 1536 x 768px is the recommended size for Linkedin banner image.
A proper image for your article
The written article requires a proper image, as well, but compared to the previous points, this Linkedin image does not meet any recommendation for its size and location. Both can be chosen according to your preferences and ideas.
To find the greatest employees for your company, you can have a separate section on your Linkedin page introducing the opportunities of the career of your company. For this you will again need e good image with its right size, which is recommended to be 1128 x 376px. (1128 x 376px. – for minmum). And the maximum file size for this case is 2MB.
These points are very essential.
Undoubtedly, to build a good career one needs good qualifications and abilities to work with right principles and with right people. But can anyone argue that the right introduction of your career cannot affect on what you call a career?
Based on the long years of experiences and results, we can surely say that the introduction is very important. People will hardly trust a company that is negligent and casual toward the page it runs. Imagine that you are entering a page, where everything is complex, the images are randomly chosen, have bad quality, a wrong size and do not correspond to what the company offers. This kind of company has no chances to win the trust of the clients.
Thus, taking into account the information on the right image size that we introduced above, can have a very decisive influence on the clients, entering your page. If you get the right sizes of each image on your Linkedin profile, it will get greater chances to grab the attention of the viewers. The better design, the better impression your Linkedin profile will leave on your customers and on employees, as well.
