It seems there are different recommendations for Instagram landscape format image resolutions available out there:

  • One say, the image should have 1080 px x 608 px (which is 1.91:1).
  • Others say, it should have 1200 px x 628 px (which is also 1.91:1)

What is the recommended resolution nowadays?

    \$\begingroup\$ 1080 by 608 is 1.78:1, not 1.91:1. When you say there are different recommendations, can you provide sources? Are they reliable recommendations? \$\endgroup\$
