LinkedIn Image Sizes and Character Limits

Below is an overview of many of the more frequently used current LinkedIn image sizes and character limits that will allow you to plan in advance. When typing content, it’s always best to type in Word or other word processing program so you can more clearly see the red underline if you have a typo. You can easily paste from Word into LinkedIn.
