  • Discover and image size: 1200px even for smaller pages?

    Posted by seohelper on November 16, 2021 at 2:23 pm

    I read in Discover docs that in order to be eligible to be shown there, you need images of at least 1200px width.

    But my page layout caps the div at 992px. Or rather at 62rem. And then, there is some padding and borders. So the max a feature image for the article can be with max-width:100% is 960px.

    So I generally resize my images to be at most 960px and then set max-width:100% for smaller screens in portrait mode.


    Would it be beneficial to start preparing images at 1200px even thought they would always be capped to at most 960px with max-width:100% for the browsers?

    You could always serve 2x resolution for Retina displays.

    most laptops nowadays feature double pixel density. your 960px images will eventually look blurred even in 960px media queries.

    Seek how to serve images for different resolutions. it’s one of the reasons the ‘preview’ image facebook requires is 1200 x 628 px.
