Notes....

  • *Recommended sizes are minimums and particularly for profile pictures I’d suggest to go a little larger (keeping the same ratio), to future-proof and ensure good quality imagery across all platforms

  • Keep in mind cover photos are cropped differently on mobile and desktop. Once uploaded be sure to view your profile on both displays before finalising

  • Images with logos or text will work best when uploaded as a PNG file
