When scheduling and posting content on social media, it’s important to remember that images can be obscured if not adjusted to fit different sites. Considering that most people quickly skim through their feed, your image has to show the essential information, without being clicked on. If an image has no text, it still needs to intrigue and capture attention by being optimized for the platform its on.
Even though it seems tedious to resize an image for each site, posting an image that cuts off important information is a waste of time. There are plenty of free online design tools like Canva that allow you to easily pick a social media template that is pre-sized and quickly resize the image for another platform.
If you schedule posts, but don’t create the images, explain to the designer that you need images sized for each platform that you use.
