What Image Sizes Should I use on Publicate

| Inside Publicate, Product


One of the common questions that we get from customers is;

“what Image sizes should I be uploading into my Publications?”

So we thought we would create this helpful guide to refer back to anytime you need.
Note: You can use images smaller than recommended, but if the images are too small you may get pixelation, causing the image quality to look poor.

Header, Footer and Divider or Full Width Image

Header, footer and dividerThe optimal width for a full width image is 1500px, but you can choose any height you like, depending on if you want a thin divider or a deeper header image.


Content Cover Images

If you want to upload your own cover image for any piece of content we have made the optimal sizes really simple by only having THREE sizes;

  1. 1500x468px
  2. 1000x600px
  3. 900x600px

Here is how they fit into all of the different Publication layouts;
