Social Media Image Size Guide [INFOGRAPHIC]

Social Media Image Size Guide [INFOGRAPHIC] | Wepyirang | Scoop.it

The basics of any social media account can be quickly mastered, but figuring out the heights and widths of all the images you will need to make your social outposts look awesome is a time-consuming and, unfortunately, often instantly forgettable business.

And it gets a heck of a lot more complicated when you start rolling out your Google+, LinkedIn and YouTube channels, and more.


Help is at hand, courtesy of this infographic from Raidious, which presents a one-stop social media spec guide for content designers.

Remove Any Image Background With Clipping Magic

Remove Any Image Background With Clipping Magic | Wepyirang | Scoop.it
Clipping Magic is a free web app for quickly and easily removing image backgrounds.

When using images for PowerPoint presentations, blog posts and other projects, one may require removing their background so that they may blend in with the colors of your presentation slide, blog or canvas.  However, removing a background image isn’t easy and being a PRO at PhotoShop is not possible for everyone.

Looks like a great tool - I hope there is an Android version of it. 

StudentSupport@EdinburghCollege's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:35 AM

Studying is not the intended function of this application, however, by uploading lecture slides as images, or taking pictures of the board during class, then uploading these images to Pixntell, would allow you to create your very own custom Flashcards. By recording your own audio notes to accompany the images, you could create short movies that could act as bitesize recap tools to support your revision, or prompts for studying, or a visual plan for your coursework.

If you want to learn how to use images effectively inside your website or blog here is a truly excellent guide by Chistian Vasile on 1WD.

In the guide you will find rational and fact-supported advice on how to choose, place and test image use inside web-based content as well as lots of extremely relevant examples of effective image use online.

From the original article: "...if you manage to find the right pictures and insert them in the right places, they can do wonders for you, as they did for some others."

Well written. Informative. Resourceful. 8/10

Confessions of A Director of Ecommerce
I've spent the last few years trying to share as many "secrets" as I learned as a Director of Ecommerce. I don't run an ecommerce website anymore so can afford to be generous (lol). 

One of my pet peeves was directing the eye sight line of people in our images. I wanted the eyes pointed at something that mattered. People follow the eye line of those they are looking at. We had three tactics:

1. Gaze straight at visitor - promotes engagement.

2. Gaze directly at a Call To Action - promotes clicks.

3. Gaze at other people in same picture - promotes connection.


 We used #1 for pages with broad reach such as our homepage and category top-level pages. 

We used #2 in 4Q on the home page and bending the sight lines of any people in images on a product page works well (our product pages tended to make the PRODUCTS the heroes so few people). 

We used #3 when connection was one of the benefits of a product. If you sell wine, travel or family cars you may want to have pictures of people looking at each other. I would never ONLY have this picture on a webpage since it can make the viewer feel left out. 

The natural companion to the "connection" picture is a picture of a single person gazing out at the viewer. This says, "Yes, we see you, value your visit and want to be friends". 

Websites communicate SO MUCH in covert ways. Balancing what you say with one image such as the people looking at each other with another image to promote engagement is the game you play, the inside baseball "secrets" that separate teams capable of making millions in profits online from those who won't and wonder why :).M
