The right image dimensions

A guide to choosing the right image sizes for our WildHub site.

Profile pictures

Profile pictures should be at least 512 x 512 pixels. As with every image uploaded to WildHub, there isn’t a limit on its size. 

For profile pictures in particular, you will have the option of rescaling it should it not be squared, so don’t worry if your profile picture is vertical or horizontal.

Content poster images

Hero images or content poster images should be at least 1280 x 960 pixels. These should be in a landscape orientation (horizontal) and be in JPG or PNG format. Please read this guide on choosing the appropriate format.

We recommend that you do not include text within the image itself as we cannot guarantee how it will appear when the image is resized for different devices.

Notably, any image added within a post will be automatically resized so there isn’t a limit on these images either.

Room posters

Room posters should be at least 1280 x 960 pixels and should be in JPG format.

To use freely-usable images as content or room posters, I personally like to consult Unsplash. This site provides free images and photos that you can download and use for any project.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with us at hello@wildhub.community

WildHub Community Manager, WildTeam UK

My background is mainly in species conservation, education and capacity development. For several years, I researched mother-young interactions in gorillas and chimpanzees, in captivity and the wild. After that, I worked for three years in Indonesia, where I developed and implemented youth ambassador and community engagement programmes on local and regional scales. These programmes are aimed at building conservation capacity and promoting stewardship. I currently conduct my PhD research on the professional development of conservation professionals and work as Community Manager at WildHub.
