When it comes to attaching images on Google Posts, you can’t just use any image. There are guidelines and requirements for these images that may alter your photo in ways you do not like if not followed. Find out everything you need to know about attaching images to Google Posts.
What size should my Google Post image be?
Google has pretty strict regulations on image sizes, and if the images do not match the regulations, it may be cropped in a way that is not pleasing to the eye. Follow these sizes and requirements and you will be all set to go:
- Image size should be no smaller than 720 pixels wide or 540 pixels tall
- 4:3 aspect ratio (you may crop and edit your image once it is uploaded)
- File size between 5MB and 10MB
- File format: BMP, PNG, or JPG
How do I optimize a Google Post image?
Image optimization is normally where people get stuck. Anybody can optimize content, but what about images? Follow these tips on optimizing your images both on and off Google Posts:
- Make sure the name of the image is descriptive, yet simple:
- Use high-quality, well-lit, and colorful images.
- Any site that shares stock photos for free commercial use will have high-quality images to choose from (pexels.com or unsplash.com).
- Be sure the subject of the image is directly centered after your image has been cropped to the 4:3 aspect ratio.
