    Hi Louise,
    I had this on my 2-do list to gather all these dimensions in one place. Now I don’t have to! Thanks a million!

        Most photos don’t show the square. I use Ms Office Picture Mgr. to resize and compress photos. I guess compressing to 448×336 (pre-set for web pages) isn’t sufficient. When I’ve added text to a photo at bottom or top it sometimes gets cut off. Is this an optimal size or 403×403?

      • Louise Myers
        December 1, 2012

        Any square 403 or larger will work. But the non-square image is only cut off on your Timeline – it should show in its entirety in the news feeds of your fans. The square image will be larger in the news feeds tho.

    This is great. I’m going to have to make some templates using these guidelines. That way I only have to place my image in and voila it’s ready to go. Thanks for the info :)

    Very useful advice. For those processing their own photos in something like Photoshop or Lightroom, I’d also strongly recommend that any ‘sharpening’ they apply to the image should only be done AFTER applying the image sizing recommended above. If it is a photo that you need for printing, screen size and Facebook size, save the original unsharpened at original size in a lossless format (not .jpeg!). Open the original image and resize to the output size required and then sharpen for that size. For Facebook, save as an 8 bit (if you normally process in 16bit) .jpeg image. Why do this? On Facebook, lots of beautiful images are spoiled because they have been sharpened at print output resolution and then rendered by Facebook to the size they need.

    One of the best way for a creative profile picture is to convert your pic to cartoon. I have done it from fiverr.com.
    It has come so good. I suggest it for you also.

    • Louise Myers
      February 21, 2013

      That could be fun for a personal page, but I don’t recommend cartoons for a business page (except in limited circumstances where it may be appropriate – like the business does cartoons, or kid stuff). Showing your face is a better way to help people get to know you, and then trust you.

    Recently facebook has instituted a new event layout with the event picture on top like a cover photo on the timeline. Do you know what the correct dimensions of that new photo area on the events are? Thank you!

    • Louise Myers
      March 6, 2013

      Hi Tom! The most recent size I found is: 714 x 264.

      I don’t use events myself so I hope this works! Let me know if you give it a try.

      Best of luck!

    I’m a photographer and I’m really struggling with what dimensions/sizes are the best for sharp images to post on my page. Would you just upload the largest size they allow? I’m not having much luck with this.

    • Louise Myers
      July 13, 2013

      No, I wouldn’t, Jennifer. I’d actually upload the smallest, and even lowest resolution, files you find acceptable for viewing. This will deter people from stealing, and possibly even selling, your images.
