Do you know the size of your shoes? If you are a Page admin, you should also know the size of your Cover photo, Profile picture or Highlighted posts by heart. In case you can’t remember the right dimensions, use this handy cheat sheet…we won’t tell anyone.
As we all know, Facebook Timeline offers a generous amount of space for visuals from the "big board – like” Cover photo to the prominent space in Highlighted posts. Businesses are also realizing that strong visuals serve as a great medium for storytelling, brand image building or promoting key messages, emotions, and values to their audience. But the power of these visuals also lies in their quality, which is why we prepared this handy cheat sheet covering the basic photo dimensions for your Page.
Get Creative And Stand Out
As a brand, you want to make sure that your Page stands out from the crowd and presents your true identity as creatively as possible. A lot of brands choose to express themselves by interconnecting their profile picture with the Cover photo; if you decide to do the same, bear in mind that the profile picture displays 23 pixels from the left side and 210 pixels from the top of your Cover photo. Your Profile picture should always be uploaded as a 180 × 180 pixels picture (Facebook will crop it down to 160 × 160 pixels).
And Don’t Forget…
You should also pay attention to the look of your About section (only the first 255 characters will be visible), your latest photo, and your apps (111 × 74 pixels). When you decide to post a link to your blog article or press release, the size doesn’t really matter that much as long as the picture has a square ratio. And don’t forget that when you want to highlight a post to make it more visible, you have to change its width to 843 pixels.
