Why doesn't Instagram post my image or displays my image incorrectly?

2017-07-12 10:08

All networks are different and follow different rules when it comes to images sizes. If you have posted to Instagram with Blog2Social and your image is not displayed the way you wanted it to or not at all, the size of your image could be the reason.

Although Blog2Social adapts your blog's images to the respective networks you are posting them to, images that are too large or too small will result in, either not being posted at all or appearing pixeled as Blog2Social tries to fill the images frame in the network.

As a ground rule for Instagram, your images should be quared. However, Instagram recently changed it's settings and can now also display 16:9 or other formats with out cutting the images.

The standard images sizes for Instagram are:

  1. Profile image: 100 x 100
  2. Photo thumbnail: 161 x 161
  3. Photo size: 1080 x 1080 maximum for posted images

Instagram will still scale down the images you post to your feed to 612 x 612.

Tip: Check whether you have ticked the box "Post no image" at the buttom of your one-page preview. If it's checked, you tell Blog2Social not to post an image to Instagram, Pinterest and Flickr. Just uncheck the option and try again.
