Dimensions Of A Facebook Cover Photo
When I was making our graphics for the All Up in Your Girl Service podcast, I developed a team cover photo for our Facebook team with all the "typical" requirements I utilized-- the right dimension, the best style, etc as well as it was STILL resembling a hot mess. There were pieces of the solid color obstructs 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 as well as I wished to share it with you!
Alright, so, you NEED TO ensure the photo is the best dimension; if it is even 1 pixel off Facebook will compress it and your top quality will certainly go down-the-tube. So, what size should it be?
For an organisation page (as well as your individual cover photo): 851 x 315 pixels [WxH] For a Facebook group page: 801 x 250 pixels
The "typical" method to conserve anything for internet usage is to "save for internet usage" as a PNG data kind BUT, when it comes to our podcast FB team picture, it wasn't working, it was appearing like this [look close, you'll see pixelation specifically around the text on the left-hand side of the picture]
So, I did a little research study as well as understood that Facebook press ANYTHING over 100KB's in dimension-- even if your image is 101KB it will be pressed as well as resemble poo.
How do you deal with that? Well, you save it as a JPG and regulate the data size [see listed below]
These are some screenshots from Photoshop of how I dimension as well as conserve my photos (this example is a Facebook Organisation page Cover Image).
Start with the appropriate dimension.
Develop the photo.
Conserve as a JPG.
In most editing programs, you'll see just what size the JPG will be, in my situation it was 202.6 kb, so I dragged the top quality slider up until I got it the closest to 100KB without going over [ya understand, type of like the Cost is Right, ha!]
Alright, I decreased the file size to 99KB and also below is the new screenshot of what our team picture appeared like ... FAR BETTER!
In full disclosure, we really altered our brand around a little bit then all went down, so this is the real present photos on our group page-- yet still, no pixelation.
There you have it! Exactly how you could stay clear of the ever-so-present pixelation in Facebook cover images.
