Circlez GuideWhat are the ideal image size and aspect ratios for Circlez?

Image sizes are essential on social media, even though they are a small part of the overall user experience. Incorrect image dimensions can result in content that is ill-fitting or clipped. Worse yet, if your painstakingly altered photographs aren't optimized for size, the platform may reject them.

In this post, we've put together a Circlez picture size guide to make it easier for you to know how best to optimize your images.

Profile Image Sizes

Your avatar should have a 1:1 aspect ratio (i.e. square) as we use circles to represent your avatar throughout the site. The recommended size is 400px X 400px and permissible formats are JPG, PNG, and GIF. The maximum file size is 2MB.

Cover Image Sizes

Cover photos (i.e. banners) should have a ratio of 3:1. We suggest a size of 1500px x 500px for the best resolution. The maximum file size is 5MB, and we'll accept JPGs, PNGs, and GIFs.

Post Image Sizes

Currently, we only allow a single image per post, but we are working on allowing up to 4 images per post in the future. The ideal image size and aspect ratio for post images is 1200px X 675px and 16:9, respectively. The maximum file size is 5MB for JPGs, PNGs, and GIFs.
