What is the best size for LinkedIn images?

When you're selecting social media cover photos, shared images, and other social media assets, knowing the basic image dimensions might not cut it. It's become a real challenge to size your images correctly with so many platforms and browsers.

Even just among your Facebook marketing campaigns, photo dimensions vary according to where and how it's shared — from cover photos, to timeline images, to profile pictures. AAHHHGGGG!

What is the optimal size for the header image on a LinkedIn article? I've seen many suggestions after searching Google and I even see a few conflicting recommendations from LinkedIn Help. Is it 744×400, 600×315, 940×788, 1850×200 or what?

In this video I test different image sizes to see which size works best. Let me know if you find a better solution!
