Boost your Linkedin personal branding with the best Linkedin profile picture size, also called Linkedin profile photo size. Written by Mau, a Senior Digital Marketing Specialist at eDigital.


The most optimal Linkedin profile picture size is 400 x 400 pixels.

Note: You can actually use any square photo up to 4320 x 4320 with no need of using the Linkedin profile image cropping tool. When briefing your photographer, ask for an 8mb (high quality) 400 x 400 pixels image, jpeg or png file, for your Linkedin profile photo.

You can also use the best Linkedin cover (header) photo size for your Linkedin personal profile.

Can I use a GIF as my Linkedin profile picture?

Unfortunately, Linkedin does not support GIF images at this stage (Nov 2020)

A quick question for you:

  • How much of your time and money with LinkedIn Marketing is actually generating benefits for your business?
  • Is it really worth your endless time promoting your LinkedIn account when you know you do not even own it?
  • Would you better off pivoting your marketing resources to other areas?

I see this ⛔️  MASSIVE ISSUE ⛔️  many times!

Many new business owners, entrepreneurs and marketers naively think the more noise they publish on LinkedIn, the more likely potential customers will like their brands and buy. Does that sound like you? That’s ok.

You can always change the way you see LinkedIn Marketing by starting a successful Social Media Strategy.

✅  Once you have your Social Media Strategy defined, many things will make more sense and I will assure you will look at Instagram Marketing in a far different new way.

In fact, a well-crafted strategy will:

✔︎ Free up valuable time
✔︎ Make you produce far less but better quality content and,
✔︎ You will get greater results as followers and customers will notice.

If you believe you have a creative, passionate and curious mind, I invite you to read my article about How to write a killer Social Media Strategy.

I guarantee you will start doing LinkedIn Marketing in a far more meaningful and effective way. 😀
