Common Aspect Ratios

A quick cheat sheet to common aspect ratios and image sizes. Reference the various ratios with a base width of 1080 pixels. The ratios range from 1.91:1 to 1:1 and include landscape to portrait.

I chose the base width of 1080 pixels because it’s the maximum width an image can be on Instagram. This creates an easy reference point to compare the various heights of images at different aspect ratios.
