“Twitter image is unique” problem
Hello. Are you posting images on Twitter?
On Twitter, the way images are displayed depends on the media they are looking at and the number of images uploaded.
It seems that the difference between the appearance on the PC and the appearance on the smartphone was resolved in the beginning of July 2019, but the appearance on various Twitter applications, 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 …… Since everything is so different, I think it is really troublesome for those who care about that.
(Furthermore, the content of this article may even be the only one now, as Twitter constantly changes it.)
Uploaded images are cropped in strange places
You want to make your work look beautiful.
The difference in appearance when uploading one to four images will be described later.
First of all,
When uploading images, the location displayed in the thumbnail differs depending on the person ……….
I do not know exactly this is a thumbnail, but this image display of Twitter, this is which part is cut out and displayed.
Here is the image used for verification this time.
I’m rooting for SAMURAI SHODOWN.
When uploading this image by itself,
At the top,
By the way, the above verification image, JPG of all 624 × 928, that is, exactly the same size and something has changed, the image position displayed on Twitter has changed.
According to professional designers, only 1/100 people click on the image.
Not many people click on broken images.
What image will be what thumbnail
Many people are worried that strange parts will become thumbnails in portrait images.
One of the reasons why the same image size and the same image capacity can be cut off on Twitter is the amount of information in the image.
White the rest of the first frame
Reduce the amount of information in the second frame
Namely, Twitter automatically cuts out the most prominent part.
Since a person’s face is automatically recognized, it is easy to display the face (especially photos).
Also, characters are easily displayed when characters are inserted.
Need to adjust according to the image
The point is that it depends on what the image is, where you want to show it, the size of the image, the weight of the image, so you need to adjust each image.
Although I wrote that it changes depending on the amount of information, after all, it is only AI (?) That automatically determines it, so humans do not know what caused the location to be displayed.
There is a possibility to solve it by cutting one completed image, but it takes a long time to adjust the image and upload it to Twitter.
・ Instead of uploading only the image, upload other images and try to increase one image to two images and two images to three images
・ Image quality deteriorates on Twitter, so cut out part of the image, adjust the thumbnail, and direct the actual size image to other image upload specialty sites
Method 1: Forcibly change the appearance of thumbnails by uploading multiple images
How to upload other images.
Thumbnail changes with different number of images. Use it to deceive.
Method 2: Slightly reduce the image for Twitter, give up the complete reproduction of the original image
The next method gives up uploading to twitter with the original image quality and appearance.
In other words, don’t stick to Twitter alone.
Originally uploading to twitter will significantly reduce the image quality,
Since it is a twitter that does not flow back like a river, you should use twitter as a tool to upload pictures to Tumblr etc and guide them there.
It is also important to start drawing after deciding how many images
When verifying this time, when displaying vertically long cartoons / images on Twitter, unexpected places may be displayed unless you intend to output them in two or three, and it is difficult to fix it aiming at it I thought.
To upload an image that you do not want to be cut,
If you want to upload only one, you should use a 16: 9 ratio.
You don’t have to click, because you can see all of the images.
It’s definitely better not to use 16:9 if you have 2 images.
This is because two nearly square images of 7:8 are arranged side by side.
If set to 16:9, it will be cut off.
If you upload three, it is better to use 7: 8 for the first and 16: 9 for the second and third.
If uploading with 4 photos, it is better to use 16: 9.
In this way, it is troublesome to display images properly on twitter.
Therefore, you may try to show the image without thinking too much.
Just remember this,
・The ideal size of Twitter images depends on the number of uploads
・When uploading a single file,Absolutely 16: 9
