Twitter is a great social media platform for the purpose of connecting people and allowing them to share their thoughts with a difference. Twitter allows its users to put a profile photo on their accounts, and profile photos are available in a variety of sizes. Getting multiple alternate sizes by modifying the URL is easy.

A Twitter profile image must be at least 400 x 400 pixels in size and no larger than 2 MB. Whereas, JPG, PNG or GIF are acceptable file formats.

If a user uses Twitter primarily for business purposes, their Twitter image may be your brand logo or a professional head shot.

Steps to download a profile picture in its original size from Twitter:

  • Open the photo you want to save.
  • Right click on the photo.
  • Choose ‘Open image in new tab’.
  • Substitute ‘Small’ size for ‘Orig’ in the image URL and press Enter.
  • You can also substitute ‘Large’ for ‘Orig’ or ‘Orig’ for ‘Large’ if you want a larger image.
  • Save the image to the preferred location by right clicking on it.

Using a browser extension:

  • Users who frequently save photos can use a Google Chrome extension called “Twitter View Original Images”.
  • It has several customization options and simplifies the process outlined above.

Using the Twitter app:

  • Open Twitter on your desktop or mobile browser.
  • Log into your Twitter account.
  • Find the photo you want to download.
  • Copy the URL of the photo and paste it into the search bar on the tool’s website.
  • Select the image you want to download and click “Download” next to the preview window.
  • Choose a location for the file on your computer or mobile device, and then click the ‘Download’ button.
