How to Size Images on Your LinkedIn Page

Only with correctly-sized images on your LinkedIn page will your business stand out as authoritative and trustworthy. Plus, when you use pictures of optimal dimensions, you improve your online branding efforts. As LinkedIn occasionally changes size requirements for different images, it’s important to recheck your pictures often. We’ve created this up-to-date LinkedIn image sizing cheat sheet for that very purpose.

  • Business logo (400 x 400) – Your business logo appears on your profile and on posts and comments you make. It needs to present your business as high-quality and reputable.
  • Banner image (1536 x 768) – This image appears on your business’s homepage and provides you with a great opportunity to capture a visitor’s attention.
  • Shared link thumbnail (520 x 272) – When you share a link, it will appear as a thumbnail in this size.
  • Shared video thumbnail (180 x 110) – As these dimensions are much smaller than other social media network, you’ll need to make sure that your videos are easily viewable in this size.
  • Shared image (1200 x 627) – LinkedIn scales shared images to 436 x 228. Images need to be at least 200px wide, otherwise, they will appear as small thumbnails.
  • Career banner image (1536 x 768) – This is the largest image on LinkedIn. It’s at the top of the page when a user navigates to your careers tab. Make sure you utilize this large piece of real estate with a truly engaging photo that speaks to your ideal candidate!
