Tailwind Create for Instagram and Facebook is a new feature inside Tailwind Create that lets you schedule your content across those platforms while you create your pins for your Pinterest account.
It is advantageous to have a tool that can simultaneously resize your designs to work with different social media platforms. All you really have to do is create the content, create the design, and with a few clicks, have them ready to post them on Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook.
Let’s see how.

Have you ever tried to schedule a loss with an image across different social media platforms to only find out a few moments later that your images were blurry for some social media platforms, but, in contrast, in some others, they looked ok.
If it happened to you, you know that you cannot use the same image size across all social media if you want them to look presentable.
To give you an idea, each time you want to use an image for a social media platform, you have to change the size to fit that platform if you’re going to have a high-quality post.
Here is an example of how the size of an image needs to have to be posted on the following social media platforms:
The recommended sizes are as follow for the different social media platforms:
- Facebook upload size: 1,200 x 630
- Tweet with shared link: 1200 x 628
- Instagram images: 1080 x 1080
- Pinterest Pins 600 x 900 typically. Pinterest allows other sizes too.
If you want to use the same image for the profile picture, ads, or other places on each social media platform, you have to resize them one by one, and if you post a lot, the task can become really time-consuming.
Fortunately, some tools can help resize images and post them on social media platforms with just a few clicks and minimal loss of time.
