Blog post thumbnail upload size (use same image file for within post and as thumbnail?)

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a best practice for image uploads for blog posts.  I've found very clear guidance for images within a blog post, but nothing so clear for the thumbnail image to go with the post.

Can I just load the same image file to both places (into the post itself, and into blog post settings > Options > Thumbnail image), or should I make/use a smaller version (smaller file size) for the thumbnail?

Or in other words, if I use a post-sized file for the thumbnail image, will Squarespace automatically resize it (and not slow my site down)?

And is the answer the same for the Alternate Social Sharing Image?

Thanks
