Image Sizes on Second Street

Second Street uses a responsive approach when displaying images. What this means is that when you upload an image to the platform, our software will automatically adjust to the user's screen width and height. Because of this responsive approach, we will often recommend an aspect ratio instead of preset pixel dimensions. The IAB (Interactive Advertising Bureau) offers a helpful .PDF of examples of different pixel dimensions that correspond to the given aspect ratios here.
