Instagram profile photo size

You must comply with the Instagram image requirements so that your profile photo is not distorted or the size spoils your account’s look.

What is the ideal size?

The official Instagram profile size is 110 x 110 pixels. However, the recommended size is 180 x 180 pixels.

In addition, remember that Instagram compresses the content, so we recommend that you upload it to the highest quality and resolution possible.
