Pictures are well known in light of the fact that they are attractive and in a flash satisfying. Nonetheless, when transferring pictures, the substance isn’t the main thing that must be thought of – you should likewise consider the record size of the picture and its shape.

Here are a few different ways to advance the pictures you show on the five significant online media locales: Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest.


Whatever site you are transferring a picture to, ensure that the document name is applicable to the picture. In this way, if the picture shows a red dress from your late spring assortment, call the picture summer-dress-red.jpg. Naming your pictures suitably will expand the opportunity of them appearing in the right picture look.

You’ll see that I named the picture record as a JPEG. There are various picture documents you could utilize – JPEG, GIF or PNG – however utilizing a JPEG is the most ideal alternative. JPEG records can be compacted significantly, yet at the same time be of average quality. Use GIF records for thumbnails and never huge pictures. Use PNG documents as an option to both of the other two.

In particular, ensure that every one of your pictures are attractive and significant. Post normally and react to remarks that your pictures get. Work out what pictures get the most likes, +1s and shares and when, at that point make sense of the best technique to exploit famous pictures.

The Facebook profile picture covers the spread photograph near its base, right-hand corner. It is 160 x 160 px, however the picture you transfer to occupy the space must be more than 180 x 180 px. I would prompt utilizing your organization logo as your profile picture, yet attempt to be imaginative with your spread photograph. On the off chance that you have the opportunity, change it consistently, or use it to publicize new offers or items you have. Ensure, notwithstanding, that you observe Facebook’s principles.
