Why this guide?

It's just a pain to go searching for this information to update company, personal and client profiles and with as much as it changes per site there needs to be one area for it. There are a lot of posts with infographics and too much wording. This is fast and simple. Plus I made it a repo instead of a Gist so people can help me update it. Pull Requests and Issues are open! Cheers

Notes

  • As most profile images are square - It's best to just have a 600x600ish image that you can use for all the square profile photos and let the sites resize them to what they want
  • All sizes here are in pixels (px)
  • If there's a single size listed here, that's the width meaning height doesn't matter in that case
