Crop an Image to All the Social Media Sizes

Have you nailed the best design evarrr but it won’t fit where you need it (a.k.a. on your billion social channels)? Fear not. In PicMonkey, you can crop your canvas to fit proper social media sizes at any point in your workflow.

Wanna skip dealing with sizes entirely? Use one of our pre-sized (and designer-made) templates, or DIY with a blank canvas. The latter comes pre-sized as well so that you never have to worry about those icky, ever-changing sizes.

Still, we've done the hard work if you'd prefer to see the numbers yourself. Read on to find the correct sizes for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, Snapchat, Etsy, and Twitch, plus a quick how-to on cropping images in PicMonkey.

How to crop to the right social media size in PicMonkey

  1. Open your image in PicMonkey.

  2. Click Edits on the left tabs menu. Then click Crop.

  3. Use the Aspect ratio box to select your desired social media size.

  4. Click and drag the crop box to where you want it.

  5. Click Apply to save your changes. All set!

Did you use graphics or text on your image? Now comes the artistry that no instant re-sizing algorithm can do smartly: adjust the objects in your design to the new crop. Nudge that graphic a little here, resize your text a little there, and your design is ready for social stardom.

If your design has a color background, and your new crop size is wider or taller than the dimensions you started out with, select the color background layer in the Layers panel and drag the side handles (in the design) to extend it to the new crop size.

Remember that your image has been auto-saving constantly while you work, so call off the search party for a “save” button — it’s all squared away in Hub, PicMonkey's cloud storage.

Need to size images for multiple social media channels? This is where things get magical. Check out our Smart Resize tool — it'll get the job done fast.

Resize pictures on our mobile app

In the PicMonkey mobile app, load your image and tap Edit in the bottom toolbar. Tap Crop, then flick the size wheel under your photo left and right to get perfectly sized starting points for your Facebook covers, YouTube thumbnails, and much more.

If you’re just starting an image, tap Size after you’ve opened a blank canvas. Flick the horizontal size wheel left and right to see all your social size options.
