Promo: Social Media image resizing has never been easier

Image Resizer by Promo is a free online service that takes source images or photos and turns them into perfectly sized images for social media.

Most social media sites give its users some customization options when it comes to the public user presence on the site and the look and feel of the social media site itself.

Facebook users may post page and event covers, upload story pictures, profile images, or news feed images, and Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, or Pinterest offer similar functionality.

While you can go ahead and just upload any photo to the sites, optimized images make everything look better, usually.

Image editors like Paint.net, GIMP or Photoshop can be used for that, or specialized programs such as Light Image Resizer, FastStone Photo Resizer, or ImBatch.

Experienced users may use image editors to create custom images for social media sites but less experienced users may prefer automated solutions that help them with the task. Enter Promo’s Image Resizer.
