Your Go-To Guide For Facebook Image Sizes
Being successful on Facebook is becoming increasingly difficult. We are highly visual creatures and Facebook likes to change up their image requirements quite regularly with little notice.
Those who are badly equipped or don’t possess the proper tools, will never make it out there. One of the first and most important aspects of advertising is getting your Facebook image size right.
In this guide we give you everything you need to know about Facebook image sizes. We will look at the following:
◦ Page cover photo
◦ Profile photo
◦ Recommended upload sizes for all post and ad images
In the early days Facebook, it was all about text and links but times have changed. Facebook has grown up and images have become the most important tool for any seller.
Images now establish your design style, your personality, and your online identity.
Facebook image requirements are not straightforward by any means! If you think that you can upload a good quality and go about your day, you will soon realize just how wrong you actually are. A lot of planning and strategy is needed in order to get the results you want.
We’ve all experienced the hassle of uploading a link or sharing a link on your Facebook page and the image from the link gets cropped on the sides so it looks completely wrong. We’ve all been there. Nothing screams unprofessional or unprepared like a badly sized image.
That is why we created this guide to help you achieve your best looking images on Facebook!
Disclaimer: Facebook has a tendency to change things often and without notice. We advise you to keep an eye out for changes at all times and know that even as you read this, these requirements too might have become outdated.
