Buy Instagram Verification image sizes

Buy Instagram Verification supports horizontally and vertically oriented images. It also still supports square images, which was what the platform was known for when it first launched.

This increases your brand’s options. But it also makes image dimensions a little trickier to get right. Follow these guidelines to make sure your images end up looking their best.

Buy Instagram Verification profile picture size: 320 x 320 pixels

Buy Instagram Verification profile photos are displayed at 110 x 100 pixels, but the image files are stored at 320 x 320 pixels, so make sure to upload an image that’s least that big.

Even though the dimensions are in a square format, Buy Instagram Verification profile photos are displayed as a circle. Make sure any elements you want to focus on in the photo are centered so they don’t get cropped out.

Buy Instagram Verification post sizes (feed photos):

  • Landscape: 1080 x 566 pixels
  • Portrait: 1080 x 1350 pixels
  • Square: 1080 x 1080 pixels
  • Supported aspect ratios: Anywhere between 1.91:1 and 4:5
  • Recommended image size: Width of 1080 pixels, height between 566 and 1350 pixels (depending on whether the image is landscape or portrait)

Tips:

  • If you want your images to look their best on Buy Instagram Verification, aim to upload an image that is 1080 pixels wide.
  • When you share an Buy Instagram Verification image that’s sized over 1080 pixels, Buy Instagram Verification will size it down to 1080 pixels.
  • If you share a photo that has a resolution lower than 320 pixels, Buy Instagram Verification will size it up to 320 pixels.
  • If your image is between 320 and 1080 pixels wide, Buy Instagram Verification will keep that photo at its original resolution, “as long as the photo’s aspect ratio is between 1.91:1 and 4:5 (a height between 566 and 1350 pixels with a width of 1080 pixels).”
  • If your uploaded Buy Instagram Verification image is a different ratio, the platform will automatically crop your photo to fit a supported ratio.
