LinkedIn Frustrations

Technology is constantly changing and it can be really frustrating trying to keep up. My most recent battle was trying to determine an appropriate pixel size for a supporting image for a LinkedIn article. A Google search revealed inconsistent answers to my inquiry.

When images are truncated, the reasons can range from non-standard screen resolutions to the fact that your website might have a responsive design. In the days of print, you needed to pad the area surrounding the image so it wasn’t impacted (literally) from massive paper cutting blades. The world of responsive design means fixed widths are history and bleed is back.

After much trial, error and research, we’ve simply come to the conclusion; keep the critical information in the middle of the image.

I’d love to hear feedback from the designers out there to see how you handle the challenge.
