BEST IMAGE SIZES | GRAPHICS ON FACEBOOK

PROFILE PHOTO - AVATAR

Until recently, Facebook recommended uploading graphics with a minimum resolution of 320×320 px. Currently, there are no clear recommendations, only information about the displayed sizes.

The portal displays the profile photo in different resolutions depending on the device you are using.
On the desktop, it is 170×170 px, and on smartphones 128×128 px.

If you want it to be displayed everywhere in excellent quality on every device, use a higher resolution file. I know from experience that 800×800 px or 900×900 px are the best.

GRAPHICS ON FANPAGE

Photos and graphics are daily bread for everyone who prepares
content and manages communication on fan pages.

Facebook is associated primarily with the rectangular format, and the best images are 1200×900 px.

A very strong trend – visible in both feed and advertisements – is to turn to squares, so every now and then prepare graphics in 1:1 proportions and resolutions of 1200×1200 px or 1080×1080 px, which is an Instagram standard.

FACEBOOK COVER PHOTO

No matter what size you use – the visibility of the cover photo will be limited to 820×312 px, and in the case of mobile devices, the photo will be centered to 640×360 px.

When preparing the photo in the background, you can use higher resolutions – keep appropriate proportions (e.g. 1920×730 px), and finally scale the graphics optimally. Thanks to that everything will be razor-sharp, regardless of the device.

FACEBOOK COVER VIDEO

Background video should be designed in the size of 820×462 px as standard, but don’t be afraid to experiment with higher resolution – just keep the proportions.

FACEBOOK EVENT COVER PHOTO

For the cover of the event, Facebook recommends dimensions 1920×1080 px. Everything is beautiful, but you know that the graphics in the background of the event can be freely moved or cut during the display?

That’s right. What to do then so that you don’t have problems with framing?

If you are a social worker – from communication to ads – and you want to save yourself some work, use the advertising dimensions. One graphic and you can also use it to promote the event.

The dimension of a classic link post, i.e. 1200×628 px will also work well. Such proportions are a guarantee that the graphics will not be cut even on mobile devices.
