Sizes and dimensions of the images you use on Facebook are very important. You should always use standard image sizes on Facebook to improve your brand presence by good organic reach.

Facebook Cover Photo Size

You should Optimize your cover photo for the right dimensions, which is 851 x 315 pixels for desktop, 640 x 360 pixels tall for mobile.

But, I recommended you to use 820 x 462 pixels

According to Facebook,

  • Your cover photo displays at 820 x 312 pixels tall on desktops/laptops and 640 x 360 pixels tall on smartphones
  • Your cover photo does not display on non-smartphones
  • Your Facebook cover photo must be at least 399 pixels wide and 150 pixels tall

Facebook is going to use our single photo for a cover but in two very different sizes :

  • 820 x 312 pixels for desktop
  • and 640 x 360 pixels for mobile.

Use a single image that works best on both desktop and mobile – 820 x 462 pixels.

Facebook Profile Photo Size

Like, Facebook Cover Photos, Profile photo size is also the un-ignorable thing that you should take care of. The profile photo is undeniably the most viewed photos of your Facebook profile. It is the first thing your audience sees and possibly the one thing they remember.

180×180 pixels
