FB cover photo sizes: wake up to an era of mobile and also video-first

The tl; dr variation: you currently have to be developing all cover images PageGroup and Account) at 1920px x 1080px.

And also indeed, we are completely mindful that 1920px x 1080px is WAY much deeper compared to the standard letterbox dimension.

We social media supervisors invest far way too much time on desktop as opposed to using Facebook like our followers and also Group members do-- i.e. on their mobiles/smartphones. So we create on desktop, test on desktop computer and also commonly never see just how awful our images search mobile or tablet computer.

Cover photos on mobile in our recommended measurements provide completely. If you have actually just submitted the traditional letterbox size you'll be losing out on a lot of mobile phone realty. That same picture will certainly be chopped (probably badly) on tablet and desktop.

Our advised 1920px x 1080px dimension is actually a 16:9 facet proportion. If you have actually invested at any time collaborating with video, you'll understand that this is the basic dimension for HD video.

Pages: 820 x 312 (we suggest you produce this in 1920 x 1080).

As well as this dimension change we've chosen a high resolution referral since we are likewise thinking about the surge of greater res devices such as Retina Present-- you want your cover images to look all crisp and also clear there as well do not you! 1920px x 1080px future proofs you to some degree and also covers off very much other gadget presently on the marketplace.

On resolution Facebook does not assist when it says "Bear in mind that your cover picture need to go to the very least 400 pixels wide and also 150 pixels high". This is just a minimum size and in our experience we locate it way also rough and the suggestions gives no assistance on secure locations for message.

So long as it's not an insane size you won't be punished for submitting a wonderful huge high res image (this utilized to be the instance with Facebook Teams where compression was used) yet say goodbye to.

One word of caution, depending upon the screen you utilize to check out (i.e. non high res/retina display), you may find the photo a little unclear. We have actually explored with JPG vs PNG and also a selection of sizes from 640x360 right to 1640x923. Currently 820x461 often looks the sharpest on older displays however we 'd still advise 1920px x 1080px for ideal future proofing.

What are the downsides of this deeper Facebook cover picture?

The upside is a lovely deep photo to have fun with that renders in all its depth on mobile. Nonetheless on tablets as well as desktop it gets reduced rather considerably as our cropping visuals below shows.

These deep measurements offer the very best view on mobile as it utilizes the entire image and also offers you the largest area possible for the image on the indigenous application. It additionally gives you a bigger location for any message that Facebook itself positions on top of the image in some scenarios.

As you don't have a choice to post different variations for mobile vs desktop providing you should be super-aware of where your photo will certainly obtain cropped on various gadgets. Maintain text to the risk-free area and guarantee that absolutely nothing else aware looks odd when savagely chopped.
