Free Photoshop Template for Optimized Images on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter


cross-platform-social-media-graphic-template-2014-11-20Kristin Ammerman wrote a great post on Social Media Examiner titled How to Optimize Your Images to Work Across Social Networks.

I won’t repeat what Kristin has already written, but I did want to add one very practical item.

I’ve created a Photoshop template which you can use to create images that are optimized for Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. It’s a Free Download so help yourself. Feel free to comment with any feedback, questions or problems.


  1. As Kristin suggested I have created two sets of guides: One is the safe space displayed on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter; the other includes a margin for text (10 pixels on the side and 5 on the bottom) so that the text does not go right to the edge of the graphic.
  2. In addition to Photoshop guides, I created 2 different layers with a stroke outlining these two areas. Obviously you should hide these when rendering your graphic. For your convenience, I already created a layer for your background and text.

    It would be great to hear from you if you use this and leave me a link to the graphic you posted in the comments of this post.
