Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am going to employ the services of a graphic designer, to create logos/ images for my website for the following sites:

  • Facebook (corporate page)
  • Twitter (twitter account for the business)
  • YouTube (youtube channel for the business)

I can't seem to find a consensus view on what image sizes are required, or if I can use one image size for all three websites.

Does anyone know the answer, or can someone point me to where I can find this information?

You can upload pretty much any size you want and the services will resize to suit (what they can resize to is listed below).

Facebook: The max is 540px high by 180px wide.

Twitter: Has 2 - 73x73 px and 48x48 px. You can also see the image full size by clicking on it in a users profile.

Youtube: Is 88x88 px.

Thanks to DisgruntledGoat for the comment, I have edited it with his additions.

All the services allow you to upload larger images which are then resized for you. And Twitter allows users to view the full size image. –  DisgruntledGoat Nov 4 '11 at 10:07
