Have you ever wanted a way to quickly access all of Facebook’s recommended image sizes and dimensions?
TechWyse created the below Facebook cheat sheet to help professionals working on the platform quickly and easily find the recommended dimensions for every image on Facebook, from profile pictures to mobile ads and shared images.
Many graphic designers and social media experts have difficulty creating images with Facebook’s dimensions in mind. This is due in part to Facebook’s continuously updating platform, which most recently saw changes to video size, business pages and event response ad images, to name a few.
In a platform so heavily populated by images, Facebook has created varying recommended upload sizes, and it’s important to keep track so that your ads and images are clear and engaging. If you don’t upload images as per Facebook’s guidelines,it will automatically choose the center of your image – which could cause your post or ad, for example, to be cut off, or appear pixelated.
It’s also important to note that promoted posts that have images with more than 20% text might have limited reach. TechWyse’s infographic also displays the number of characters allowed for the text surrounding your images. As well, you’ll be able to see how images will be displayed on mobile.
Your visual assets can make or break your Facebook presence, so it’s crucial to create images that aren’t pixelated as a result of an image that is too big or small.
Download, print or bookmark the below infographic to learn the image sizes for everything from ads to event images and more. Facebook’s ability to target your audience by interests, age, location and more make it a crucial platform for anyone looking to grow their presence online. Ensure your visual assets don’t prevent you from reaching your goals on this social platform.
