Today, I’d love to share with you the perfect LinkedIn cover photo size for your LinkedIn profile. I will also show you the right LinkedIn banner size and image sizes for your posts.

Everyone loves images ❀️

I love, my colleagues love, and everyone loves (except my friend, nothing special – he is just a super boring guy 🀣) images.

So there is no sense in describing how images are essential on social media.

But there is one issue with that is – sizes… IMAGE SIZES! 😑

Every time I tried to update my cover (background) image on my LinkedIn profile – I prepared an awesome image, and typed an impressive text but due to LinkedIn image sizes, part of my text or image was cut πŸ˜’.

For example, my first version of my cover image without me πŸ˜“:

So every time I need to create an image for my LinkedIn posts, I always went to Google to find the right image size dimensions.

But one day I decided to create my own LinkedIn Cover Photo size infographics to always keep it near me.

What tool to use to create images for LinkedIn:

I highly recommend using Crello to create images for your LinkedIn content. It’s easy-to use and super simple. You can also use a Venngage – poster maker tool to create stunning images for your LinkedIn content. Another great editing tool we love is Instasize, which is great for finding the exact image size you need.

I love this tool, so I even added it to my topΒ 7 LinkedIn Marketing Tools I can’t live without.

For example, it takes just a few minutes to create simple images, just don’t forget to choose the right size dimensions.
