Dimensions Of Cover Photo On Facebook
When I was developing our graphics for the All Up in Your Lady Service podcast, I developed a group cover photo for our Facebook group with all of the "normal" requirements I made use of-- the ideal size, the right format, etc and it was STILL looking like a warm mess. There were items of the strong color blocks that were pixelating and also "feathering" around contrasting letters and it was driving me BATTY. However, guess just what? I discovered how to repair it and also I intended to share it with you!
Alright, so, you NEED TO make sure the image is the best dimension; if it is even 1 pixel off Facebook will press it and also your top quality will certainly go down-the-tube. So, what dimension should it be?
For a company page (as well as your individual cover image): 851 x 315 pixels [WxH] For a Facebook team page: 801 x 250 pixels
The "regular" way to conserve anything for internet usage is to "save for internet use" as a PNG data type BUT, in the case of our podcast FB team photo, it wasn't functioning, it was resembling this [look close, you'll see pixelation especially around the text on the left-hand side of the picture]
So, I did a little study and also recognized that Facebook press ANYTHING over 100KB's in dimension-- even if your picture is 101KB it will certainly be compressed and also look like poo.
Just how do you fix that? Well, you save it as a JPG as well as regulate the data size [see below]
These are some screenshots from Photoshop of exactly how I dimension as well as save my images (this example is a Facebook Company page Cover Image).
Begin with the right dimension.
Create the photo.
Save as a JPG.
In the majority of editing and enhancing programs, you'll see exactly what size the JPG will certainly be, in my situation it was 202.6 kb, so I dragged the quality slider till I got it the closest to 100KB without reviewing [ya recognize, kind of like the Rate is Right, ha!]
Alright, I reduced the file size to 99KB and also below is the brand-new screenshot of what our group picture looked like ... BETTER!
Completely disclosure, we really altered our brand around a little bit hereafter all dropped, so this is the real current pictures on our group page-- but still, no pixelation.
There you have it! Exactly how you can stay clear of the ever-so-present pixelation in Facebook cover images.
