Google Business Posts - Image Size

Hello,

 

Does anyone know what the ideal size of an image to accompany a post on the Google Business page is?  I tried 530px x 530px last week and it seemed to work fine but now the image is cut short.

 

Many thanks,

Yes!  I need that answer as well - previous photos don't work.  Looks like it's rectangular now??  Help!

So it looks like from the Google tips they suggest having a minimum 720x720 image for the new"post" on Google My Business. But I noticed that it crops the image with no real rhyme or reason.

 

I found creating a document that was approximately 600x450 seemed to work well. I kept things within a safe line like a print document and was lucky for the smaller thumbnail that appears with my company. It still however, did not fill the width of the large container when I click the thumbnail. 

 

I'm sure better image guidelines will be coming along. I think if I made my document 720px wide It really would have solved the issue. I'll try it form my next post on my Google business page.

 

I hope this helps a little.

Hi Annie,

I´ve got to the bottom of this. I think that is the thumbnail image in the
rectangular shape. Apparently the ideal size is 720px x 720px - when you
upload the image it should appear in full when you click on it.

Thanks,
Ruban

Thanks for the help but that size doesn't work now. The new photo is
rectangular.

That´s strange. Have you tried a 720px x 720px image size?

Hi,

That´s strange - as I have been doing it for a while. If you search
"Property Solvers - Fast Property Buying Company", you will see some recent
examples. If not, I can post a video of me uploading on for you?

Thanks,
Ruban

720 x 720 used to work, but now they've changed it to a rectangular shape. You would think that the image upload page would have a simple note stating the crop dimensions.

Hi @Mike F

 

what you are decribing is half of the truth only;

Correct ist they are cropping the photo in the knowledge panel (KP)

But in the KP th epost view is a kind of preview only.

Once a user will click on the post he should get the photo uncropped.

Please check this for your posts and lemme know in case I'm not saying the truth
