To avoid too much cropping, use an extra-wide image with an aspect ratio of 2:1. That means you want to use an image that’s twice as wide as it is tall.
For the absolute best results, you can use our recommended image dimensions below:
|1080 pixels*||500 pixels*|
* Recommended image dimensions. This is the exact width and length of the image container that appears on your blog’s index. On mobile devices and article pages, the image is scaled down at the same aspect ratio.
