Your photos look great on your computer, but not that much when you upload them to a social media website? This can happen when you don’t optimize the photos for that particular website.

The fate of your images is unpredictable unless you design the images to fit the sizes determined by various social networking sites. They can be clipped at odd spots, appear blurry or distorted, cut off important visual information, or otherwise look odd.

You can easily set your photos and videos according to the table below and send them to your social media account.
