Facebook plays an important role for businesses to share their stories and connect with people online. With the constant changes of Facebook dimensions and specifications, it can be difficult to optimize your Facebook page, ads, and posts.

Visuals are important tools in grasping the attention of potential clients, so knowing how to deliver a professional and attractive presence on Facebook is essential.

    Wow! This is a very informative article. I was looking for something like this before, Haha, and finally I found it. It was quite hard to adjust your pictures in facebook without knowing the right dimensions. Thanks for this wonderful tip!

    This is super helpful for design team, planning with client and brain storming. Good work here techwyse. Why are you redirecting your link that is in your facebook post over to the Blog URL… tracking purposes etc ? Just curious. Thanks again.

    This is a very useful reference sheet and I’m sure many other people will enjoy this and use it to their fullest advantage. Thanks for sharing it!

  • Christy Kunjumon

    @Ramkrishnan @88redforest, I am very happy to know that this was very useful for you guys.

  • Vanessa Copeland


    Facebook image sizes don’t accommodate our infographic’s dimensions; therefore, we link it to Facebook from the blog. We do the same with all of our blog content!

  • iebo

    34-24-36. Put those measurements on your page and all young guys will click on it! I know I would. All jokes aside this is certainly the most detailed image sizer for Facebook I’ve ever seen.

    Fantastic piece of information, thank you Rajesh :)
    I will be sharing this with many people, thanks for the embed code :)

  • deemazing

    I am so happy that you have created this! I have such a hard time managing my pages because I can’t afford to pay a graphic designer and I am never able to correctly size my images. I am going to repost this on Facebook to my professional network.

  • Beniston

    Thanks for sharing. A very useful one for the ones who wanted the Facebook image to be pixel perfect.

  • Steve Toth

    We’re glad you’ve find it useful Beniston!

  • Steve Toth

    Awesome, please do share Jacs!

  • S.L Diamond

    This is helpful for me for the simple fact that I am terrible at doing this on my lonesome. I’m happy you used a list of steps, because no doubt I will be going back and forth from this page for reference.

  • DB

    Curious what the difference is between the two versions of “Facebook Shared Video”. Is that an “actual” facebook video for the first one, and a youtube link for the second one? Would love to know how to be sure to get the larger preview….

  • runejet

    Thanks Christy for sharing and also thank you Rajesh. This is very useful for me because, like Diamond, I’m horrible at sizing my pictures and this cheatsheet will definitely help me and others like me.

  • Vanessa Copeland


    The first “Facebook Shared Video is the size when you upload an “actual” Facebook video. The second one is the size of the video when someone clicks the share button found directly under an “actual” Facebook video. None of the video sizes references any external sites such as YouTube. All the sizes reference strictly Facebook dimensions. I hope that answers your question DB!

    Thanks for sharing the infographic Andre.

  • Caitlin

    Fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing this!

  • Matt A

    Do you have mobile dimensions?

  • Vanessa Copeland

    @Matt A, Mobile dimensions will vary depending on the type of operating system you’re using. Nonetheless, image sizes scale from desktop to mobile and vice versa, so I don’t believe you need to worry about mobile Facebook dimensions just yet. As long as images are optimized for the page they should convert properly on mobile devices.

  • Suan

    Re mobile dimensions: one thing I noticed is that the iPhone Facebook app crops the cover photo, showing only the middle part. This is probably worth reflecting in the cheat sheet.

  • Carla

    This just goes to show that Facebook hates us! How many different versions of graphics do we now have to make.

  • blackdata

    Really helpful, bookmarked it. Make more! I love the little guy, whoever made this is very talented

  • http://www.unitedpoleartists.com Alex Davies

    Thanks for this! Super helpful! I use photoshop and I use the correct size for my cover photos with a dpi of 72, but my pictures are a little pixelated sometimes. Do you know how to fix this?

  • Rajesh Balakrishnan

    @Alex Davies:
    Yes I too agree this is very helpful.
    FB cover photos are 851 pixels wide and 315 pixels height. If you upload an image that’s smaller than these dimensions, it will get pixelated. To get the fastest load times for your Page, upload an sRGB JPG file that’s less than 100 kilobytes and for images with your logo or text-based content, you may get a higher quality result by using a PNG file.

    It is observed that more than 95% of Facebook Pages cover photos are made only for desktops. Very few Pages take into account how it will look in mobiles.
