Facebook has been around for awhile, so it’s had time to fine-tune its image requirements. Here are some tips to help you navigate Facebook photo world:

  • Your profile photo appears in others’ news feeds, and next to your comments and replies. Make sure it’s high quality and very clearly branded.
  • Your cover photo makes a ginormous impression on visitors to your page or timeline, because it takes up some serious real estate. There are plenty of ways make use of your cover photo, from humanizing your brand to getting the word out about an upcoming event. (Psst! PicMonkey’s Facebook cover photo templates can help with all of that).
  • Post images (shared using the camera icon in the status box) appear in the news feed as a square. If you’re sharing multiple images, they’ll show up as a collage.
  • When a link is placed in the status update box, Facebook automatically pulls in an image, along with a title and description. That means you’ve gotta optimize link images when publishing, since these will show up when you (and anyone else) shares the link to your post on Facebook. Make sure that your featured images are up to current sizing best practices
  • You can easily crop a pic to the proper cover photo dimensions with our Facebook Cover Photo preset. Find it in the Basic Edits tab, in the dropdown menu under Crop. You can also create a cover photo design from scratch with a pre-sized blank canvas template. 
  • Facebook group, business, and event pages have their own cover photo dimension requirements, but no sweat because you’ll find ready-made blank canvases for all of them in PicMonkey’s Template library
