" Why don't you simply Google it?" I hear you say.

Well Googling it results in a mass of conflicting recommendations - mostly out-of-date. Ideal photo dimensions have actually altered over the years (certainly-- this is Facebook besides). As well as exactly what we have realised is most of these recommendations are much from ideal going into 2018.

Facebook Cover Pic Size

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

The tl; dr variation: you currently need to be developing all cover photos PageGroup as well as Profile) at 1920px x 1080px.

And also indeed, we are totally conscious that 1920px x 1080px is WAY deeper compared to the traditional letterbox size.

We social networks supervisors spend far way too much time on desktop as opposed to utilizing Facebook like our fans and also Group members do-- i.e. on their mobiles/smartphones. So we produce on desktop computer, test on desktop computer and also usually never see just how horrible our pictures view on mobile or tablet.

Cover pictures on mobile in our recommended measurements render in full. If you have actually only submitted the standard letterbox dimension you'll be missing out on out on a number of smartphone real estate. That very same photo will be cropped (probably badly) on tablet computer and desktop.

Our recommended 1920px x 1080px size is really a 16:9 aspect ratio. If you have actually invested whenever dealing with video, you'll understand that this is the standard dimension for HD video clip. And also of training course you could now upload video as an option to a photo on your Facebook Page (that option for Accounts as well as Groups is bound to be here at some time quickly-- slideshows on Pages is also presently in a very early roll-out).

The OLD superficial letterbox dimension (which you'll still see advised by a great deal of individuals) is:

Groups: 820 x 250 (we suggest you create this in 1920 x 1080).
Pages: 820 x 312 (we advise you create this in 1920 x 1080).
Individual Profile: 851 x 315 (we advise you develop this in 1920 x 1080).
Yet for the reasons we clarify below, it's a great deal better to create your photo in further 16:9 measurements:.

Universal suggested dimension for all all Facebook cover photos PageGroup and also Profile): 1920px x 1080px.

Just what regarding the resolution?

Along with this measurement modification we've chosen a high resolution recommendation since we are additionally thinking about the increase of higher res devices such as Retina Show-- you desire your cover pictures to look all crisp and clear there too don't you! 1920px x 1080px future evidence you to some level and covers off practically any other tool currently on the marketplace.

On resolution Facebook does not aid when it claims "Remember that your cover photo must be at the very least 400 pixels vast and also 150 pixels high". This is merely a minimal dimension as well as in our experience we locate it way too rough as well as the advice offers no advice on risk-free locations for text.

As long as it's not a crazy size you won't be penalised for publishing a good huge high res photo (this used to be the situation with Facebook Groups where compression was applied) however no much more.

One word of caution, relying on the display you use to check out (i.e. non high res/retina screen), you could find the picture a little blurry. We've try out JPG vs PNG and a variety of sizes from 640x360 right to 1640x923. Currently 820x461 typically looks the sharpest on older screens yet we 'd still advise 1920px x 1080px for finest future proofing.

Just what are the drawbacks of this much deeper Facebook cover image?

The benefit is a lovely deep picture to have fun with that provides in all its deepness on mobile. Nevertheless on tablets as well as desktop computer it obtains cut pretty drastically as our chopping graphic below programs.

These deep measurements give the most effective sight on mobile as it utilizes the entire image and also offers you the largest location feasible for the image on the indigenous app. It also offers you a larger location for any type of message that Facebook itself positions on top of the photo in some circumstances.

As you don't have a choice to upload different variants for mobile vs desktop computer rendering you have to be super-aware of where your picture will get cropped on different tools. Keep text to the safe location and also make certain that nothing else in the photo looks odd when savagely cropped.
