Image and video requirements for Social Marketing posts
Social Marketing can help you post to all of your most important social media accounts. These do, however, have specific requirements in order to post.
Social Marketing supports the following image types: PNG, JPEG, or GIF.
Recommended size: If posting to multiple social networks, we recommend square images (1:1)
|Social network||Dimensions||Maximum File Size||Notes|
|Recommended:1200 x 1200 px (square image | 1:1)1,080 x 1,350 px (vertical image | 16:9)Minimum:600 x 315 pxNote: Facebook generally scales well with all image dimensions||4 MBFor PNG images, aim for less than 1MB as larger PNGs may appear pixelated on Facebook||Social Marketing supports 10 images per post for Twitter|
When uploading multiple images, Facebook will arrange your images to match the first one uploaded.
For best results, we recommended using consistent image sizes when possible.

The photo should be in focus and well-lit. It should have no significant alterations or excessive use of filters. In other words, the image should represent reality.
