    Tumblr Dashboard Image Display Sizes (Updated March 20, 2016):

    • Photo Post: 540 by 810 pixels for dashboard view. Use 1280 by 1920 pixels for high-res version (except for superwide panoramas).
    • “Tall” Photo Post: Tumblr takes a 300-by-810-pixel version of your image then stretches it by 80% using HTML height and width attributes to make it 540 by 1458 pixels. Image quality may be diminished. Aim for uploading at least 710-by-1920-pixel images in case Tumblr switches to a better image size on the Dashboard. (It’s happenedbefore.)
    • Photoset: 540-pixel width for one image in a photoset row. 268-pixel width for two images in a photoset row. For three images in a photoset row, Tumblr displays 177 pixels on the left and right images and 178 pixels for the middle. Gutters are 4 pixels.
    • Audio Post: 169 by 169 pixels for album art.
    • Link Post: 540 pixels wide for the image grabbed by Tumblr from the web link (if available).
    • Text Post: As of March 30, 2015, inline images can appear full-width (540 pixels wide). Any inline images that are 300 pixels wide or larger will display as full-width.
    • Avatar: 64-by-64-pixel icon next to posts.

Use these sizes for Gifs & Edits, for the best display of your creations. (▰˘◡˘▰)

268 | 268   /   177 | 178 | 177   /   540  pixels

with a 2 mb file size limit for gifs. 

Footnote 1: There are height limits too but they’re not as important since ppl don’t often make graphics in those sizes, but the 540 x 810 max for photo posts is the one that will come up the most. And so you know, the white little spaces (margins) between gifs are 4 pixels. 

Footnote 2: In the triple set, if you don’t use the 178 pixel width for the middle piece, it will be blurry. This is slightly new adjustment by Tumblr to compensate for the leftover pixel. 177 x 3 = 531 then + 8 for the margins = 539. 1 extra pixel. Phew math, hard. 

Footnote 3: About 24-30 frames usually can be stuffed into full width gifs, 30-70+ in double and triple gifs. I don’t recommend skipping frames, unless it’s really warranted. Skipping frames is gauche. 

Footnote 4: There are some stubborn graphic-makers who still stick with the old dimensions, (245/160/500). Largely this is to do with the lack of theme help from Tumblr to adjust to the new sizes they forced on us a couple years ago. However, Tumblr supports the gifs with the new sizes on the dash now, so it’s actually better to use the new sizes. - What happens within the dashboard is infinitely more important than on blog pages. The dash and tag pages are where the majority of notes come from. (ノ◕‿◕)ノ*:・゚✧・
