What is the right LinkedIn profile picture size in 2020?

LinkedIn Profile Picture Size 2019

Since LinkedIn’s last update and redesign — which rolled out in April 2018 — the ideal LinkedIn profile picture size is 400 x 400 pixels.

However, it’s fine to upload a larger picture as long as it’s square, no larger in file size than 8MB, and does not exceed 4320 pixels in height or 7680 in width.

For a background photo (also known as a “cover” image) — like the one pictured above with the wooden wall and quote — 1584 x 396 pixels is recommended.

Your LinkedIn picture: is it saying what you *think* it’s saying? 😮

Studies show that we can’t see photos of ourselves objectively.

Because of this, we accidentally choose profile pictures that give a bad impression — costing us that job interview, opportunity, or even thousands of dollars off of a salary offer.
