Did you know that –

Photos account for 62% of all brands posts, and 77% of all engagement.”

It’s more important than ever for you to not only include photos in your posts, but to make sure they display properly.

It only takes a few minutes to resize your photos and yet so many companies aren’t doing it.

If you’re not a graphic designer and don’t have any idea of how to use Adobe Photoshop – I strongly suggest using This totally free site will help you resize your photo in seconds. I have been using it for years and never downloaded a virus.

Unfortunately every platform does require a different size image – some like squares or rectangles, they have different heights and widths…

How many times have you scrolled your Twitter feed and only been able to read half of that quote or seen part of the pic. Twitter moves so fast that if you can’t catch their attention, your audience will just keep scrolling.

According to –

“Tweets with images receive 150% more retweets than those without.”

I can’t think of anything that can increase your batting average more than a properly sized photo.

But how can you keep all of the sizes straight?

Glad you asked –

  1. I need to use that cheat sheet we created a little more frequently. I should have you hold me to task on sizing my images. Accountability. Ugh.
