Image of InstagramCan you imagine your Instagram feed or your Facebook banner with images that are cut off or do not have the correct size? This would definitely affect your brand's visuals and therefore the engagement you can achieve on your social networks.

At a time when digital presence is everything, you cannot allow your content to look disproportionate and that the message you want to convey is not clear to your target audience. It is essential that you choose your images carefully and optimize them according to the social network where you will upload the content; it is also important to keep in mind that, although the right proportions are essential, your images must also have a good resolution so that your followers are really clear about the message you want to communicate. This is why we developed for you a guide of sizes and measurements for social networks in 2022.

Instagram is definitely one of the platforms most subject to constant updates and implementations.
