Supported Image Sizes

To fill up the entire screen, your images have to be full resolution, either:

  • 1920 x 1080 px
  • 1280 x 720 px

If you have images that you want to use but are not sure how to resize them to fit, go to iloveimg.com and follow the instructions to resize them and get them into Socialive. Once your image(s) is resized, follow the instructions to Upload Media for Broadcasting.

Adding a Background Image or Video to a Scene
