Facebook - size of cover and profile image

Facebook Graphics – how you make a perfect fit

When it’s time to upload images to my business page I always have to look up the right sizes. Maybe it is the same for you?

One thing that I got wrong the first time was the size of my Profile Picture. I wanted to use my logo, but even when I made it 180 pixels wide it still looked really weird. So I learned that I had to fit my rectangular logo into a square box of the exact size of 180×180 pixels to make it look good.

From that time on I pay much more attention to sizes!

I also try to make my branding right and use a Cover Photo and App Pictures that reflects my brand and ideally use the same pictures across all social media.

So here are the exact sizes.

Cover Photo: 851 x 315 px
Profile Picture: 180 x 180 px (FB will reduce it to 160 x 160 px)
Single image: 504 x 504 px – but it will be scaled down in the news feed to 472 x 394 px

One tip for both your Profile image and your Cover Photo is that you put a short description about your company and add a link to your website – that way your fans will be directed to your site and you will generate more traffic.

Now it’s your turn – Do you have any suggestions for the pictures on your business page?
