Facebook Business Page Image Sizes

To get the best bang for buck with your digital marketing efforts, you need to make sure you fill in all the data and design the Facebook images for your business’s Facebook page.

A Facebook page which appears to be under construction or out of date will reflect poorly on your brand. The most important detail you need to get right is Facebook cover photo size. Having the right Facebook image size is important because if you mess it up, then the images will look all blurry, distorted, and reflect poorly on your brand.

Profile photo: 180 x 180 pixels. Displays at 160 x 160, best results when uploading a square image (360×360, 720×720 or 960×960). The Facebook profile picture frame size is 183×183 pixels.
Facebook cover photo size: 828 x 315 px (851 x 315px for personal profiles)
News Feed link image size: 1200 x 900 px
News Feed link image ratio: 4:3

Here are some templates you can use to create header graphics that will work for both desktop and mobile users. Click the images to download full sized versions.

    After much testing, the correct image size for “my story” is: 1192×440

    The left 803 pixels will appear in the sidebar, so everything on the left side should be made BIG so that when it scales down for the sidebar version it looks right. Also, in that left hand side, the top 286 pixels will be clear, everything under that will have the “ABOUT PAGE NAME” with the gradient white background covering your image. So, best to vertically centre the part that gets scaled down into the top 286 pixels instead of the full 440 pixels.

    The content on the right hand side only appears after you click, in full-size. So, there you can have detailed information that won’t show up in the thumbnail in the sidebar version.

    To test the scaled down sidebar version, copy and scale your finished cover art to fit into a 308×150 image with the right side cut off.

  2. Dave Rolnik says:

    Thank you for the wonderful education. You should make a Pinterest share button because their is a lot of incorrect, outdated information.

  3. Osman Afifi says:

    Great Guide, Thanks

  4. Nat Pan says:

    I read many comments about the Story Cover size of a Facebook Page and no one has given the right solution. I made a story cover today for my page and I figured out that the right size is 3000×1125 px or 40×15 inches (on default resolution: 75 pixels/inch). Everything has been included, no crop. I’ve tried 1000×375 and everything fits well, but the whole image is blurry and I can’t read the texts. So I re-scaled it 3 times (thus 3000×1125 px) and it worked! My images are not blurry and I can read small texts (about the size of Arial Regular, 25 font size).

  5. Wayne says:

    What is the document image size for Facebook Groups when you post a new document? I didn’t see that here. Thanks!

  6. Dreaming says:

    How about the size of images permitted on a Facebook poll?

  7. Nichole says:

    Does anyone know the size of the poll images?

  8. rhema says:

    Hey, this post very helpful for me.
    i wanted to asked, you know on facebook page there’s “our story” feature. do you know the dimension of it?


    • Owenj says:

      Has anyone cracked this? Did anyone work out how to get the Story banner and the image displayed on the right-hand side column to display correctly.

      The preview in the right hand side column cuts out a lot of the image.

  9. Jeanne says:

    3/9/2018 The group top banner does not fit right with your measurements. Every one I’ve found, I’ve tried, and it doesn’t work. 🙁

  10. S.Shales says:

    I didn’t see the answer right off so here is where ended up with my Story Cover photo size. 1200×400.

    • gina says:

      I tried the 1200×400 and it was almost perfect but image was getting cut off on the right, so i decreased the width to 1000 and it worked! so I would sayanything close to 1000×400-1200×400 should work fine.

    • Owenj says:

      I tried 1000 x 400 and its being cut off in the preview in the right hand side column.

    • Erin says:

      Thank you!!!!!! I’ve been searching for an hour and trying all different dimensions. Thank you!!!

  11. Svenja says:

  13. Maja says:

    I have a problem with facebook covers on iPhones. I’ve uploaded new FB cover and it looks good on desktop and Androids but it’s very blurry on iPhones. What can I do? What is the right dimension?

  14. Shawndy says:

    Hello! What a wonderful cheat sheet. Thank you for putting this together. However I had one question. I noticed on this Business Facebook page, the banner is much larger for their video than anyone else’s I have seen, and love how it looks. Do you know the dimensions for this process? I can not find anything relating to how this page is designed. Thank you very much in advance.


  15. Carla says:

    Hello, did you know wich are the size of cover group? Because no one works…

    • Priit Kallas says:

      Image size: The size for group photos is 820 by 462 pixels (fully visible on mobile)
      Desktop news feed display: 820 x 250 px (top and bottom cut)

  16. Stephanie says:

    Thanks for a great cheat sheet! I do however have a problem with Custom 360 Video Thumbnail – no matter what seize I use, it always comes out all blurry. I tried with the 1200×675 px but the edges are cut out. 1080×1080 fits right but again, the picture is very blurry and the text is impossible to read. Any suggestions on how to make the image clearer? (:

  17. Beth says:

    Does anyone know what the image size would need to be when adding a service to a FB Page?

  18. EM says:

    Need some help, I have an event image that’s set to what is posted here 470×174 and it still doesn’t fit. It still posts larger than the window which distorts my image.

  19. Gretchen says:

    The facebook event cover photo size is incorrect. I put those pixel sizes into pic monkey but that is clearly a group banner or cover photo size. The events are closer to but not exactly 1920×1080

  20. Tee says:

    For FB link ads, what is the size of the image (and what is the resolution of the photo) if i wanted to post that one ad for both mobile and desktop. Not sure why when i set 1200×628 dimension, and upload it on the system, finally the ads will show properly in desktop but dont show fully in mobile mode. Pls help.

  21. Ren says:

    Do not see Specs for the Facebook Group Pages Desktop and Mobile Pixels Dimensions for Cover / Banner Image…

  22. Save says:

    Thank you for sharing this information.

  23. Per says:

    This is strange,. When I upload square videos to my Facebook-page using the publishing tool, square videos are converted to wide .. any idea why?

  24. james says:

    Thank you for the updates

  25. Yasar Khan says:

    Hi Priit,

    Thank you so much for this very helpful post.
    Now, I can easily create images for my fb pages.

    Thanks again.

  26. Anita says:

    I am reading so many articles and I am unable to get a firm confirmation. It seems that your article is the closest one. From what I understood text will always be cropped when the image posted isn’t a perfect square, right? I created so many postcards and text gets cropped but when I upload on my personal Facebook image looks good.I can’t understand why. Does it make any difference when an image as used as an ad or regular Facebook. Luckily I was able to use the ones I created for Instagram.

  27. Facebook advertiser says:

    Awesome article loved it. Thanks for so brief info

  28. Meher Zeb says:

    Nice work you did. I really need it. thanks

  29. proofreading services scholarship says:

    This is a very useful content when Facebook is one of the most important sources for your business. Thank you.

  30. Katie Smith says:

    Awesome, thanks! Yeah I had found that it needs to be a 1:1 dimension and 7 seconds max, but I don’t think they’ve announced an ideal pixel dimension, file format, or max file size. Weird that you can only upload a video through mobile. Pretty neat new feature though!

  31. Katie Smith says:

    How about the dimensions, file format, and max file size for a Facebook video profile pic? This is a relatively new feature and I can find the required specs anywhere.

  32. Homes by Direct says:

    Thanks for sharing.

  33. busana muslim terbaru says:

    That’s why I’m waiting. Thank’s for the post about facebook. Nice 🙂

  34. Joe Monroe says:

    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.

    • obat diabetes says:

      Me too. I am really impressed by this blog!Very clear explanation of issues is given and it is open to everyone.
      It contains true and fair information.

  35. joe says:

    Priit, This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. After just putting up my Facebook Page, and struggling to get image sizes right and looking good, it will be MUCH easier now. Thanks Joe

  36. Awno says:

    Thx a lot. This is great info. But what about FB Event Page?
    There is a specific size for it too.. 🙁

    • jual obat kuat says:

      I agree with you. It’s will different for FB Event Page. I hope admin can explain it.

  37. Johnny says:

    Okay, now I took another question & answer platform and many also say unlimited, so this must be it, yehee!

  38. Johnny says:

    I read on another question & answer site that the length of the Facebook comment was set to 8000 chars. Was it re-set to unlimited, or that’s what unlimited means?

  39. Tessa says:

    Wow this is just what i was looking for!
    Thank you!

  40. Steven says:

    how do i determine the resolution or dpi to set for the creative? sometime the image i uploaded turn out to be in poor-res despite have a good file weight

  41. Claudius II says:

    I’m glad that FB makes it so simple. Not only do they not tell you they’re cropping your photo, they don’t tell you the required size and they only have like what 40 formats so you have to guess which one your photo fits in.

  42. Rick Noel says:

    Excellent cheat sheet for Facebook sizes and dimensions. The outcome is always better when using a tool like Photoshop to drive image cropping and optimizations vs letting Facebook decide. You probably already know, but at the time of this comment, this page ranks #1 in Google US for –> ideal Facebook image size . Awesome resource for marketers building Facebook pages and building community online. Thanks for sharing.

  43. Renae says:

    This is awesome-sauce. I just shared it on my Facebook page. Thanks!

  44. Temecula Wedding Photographer says:

    You would think Facebook would be smart enough to tell users the exact image requirements as soon the person begins to try and upload the image.

  45. Stephan de Souza says:

    Could you guys update the “Facebook Page/App” and create a new “Facebook Tag” infos?

    Facebook App (old Facebook Page)
    – Width could be: Fixed (720px) or Fluid
    – Height could be: Fixed (App defined) or Fluid

    Facebook Tab:
    There are two widths avaliable:
    – Normal: 810px
    – Narrow: 520px (Old Tab Size)

    On both the height is auto, and could be defined via javascript on the Page.

    Glad if could be ASAP 😛

  46. Noah's Dad says:

    Thanks for this very helpful post. I have a quick question if anyone knows the answer to it.

    What are the best dimensions for an image with text that is just posted as a normal picture status update?

    I’ve tried various sizes and layouts and I almost always end up with the image being cropped in people’s newsfeed (either the desktop version of the newsfeed, or the mobile version.) Is there a “right way” to do this?


  47. steven says:

    Text in ad
    Header: 25 characters
    Body copy: 135 characters (now is 90 characters)

  48. AUDIOMIND says:

    What are the maximum dimensions for an image in a highlighted post?

  49. dzindzer says:


  50. Alejandro de la Puente says:

    Hi! I just wanted to let you know that Facebook has updated the Facebook Ad Picture size to 100 x 72 px. It will be great to update that on the Cheat Sheet. Cheers!

    • Priit Kallas says:

      Thanks, we’ll get it updated ASAP.

    • andreibuspro says:

      Innovation is what makes a company stand out. It’s just that it may take time for humans to adapt to change that’s why it get’s confusing.

    • Bidur Adhikari says:

      This is better than the best ! love all the cheat codes for Facebbok Users. I use facebook every-day so this is Great Tool For me to be updated daily.

  51. Andre Penikis says:

    The cheat sheet is great and a wonderful public service, but it needs to be updated. Ad sizes & copy limits have been reduced, for example. Thanks, though.

  52. armando says:

    Do you know how to prevent the loss quality in pictures for cover photo and logo icon?

    • Priit Kallas says:

      Armando, in some cases if you create jpg with the right size it will not degrade as much as usual. However it is not a sure thing.

  53. Eric says:

    This is very helpful thanks!

    Any idea what the max or optimal dimensions are for a FB event photo?

  54. Elias Sierra says:

    I want to translate this to spanish, may I?

  55. Nick says:

    Hey guys, as everyone before me has said, this is super helpful, thank you. Is there anything similar for Linkedin, Pinterest, Twitter, Tumblr or Google+?

    • Priit Kallas says:

      Hi, Nick! Here’s one infographic with other measurements for other sites http://pinterest.com/pin/258886678550030786/

  56. Ar says:

    I think the Profile picture for timeline pages is 161 x 161 px.

  57. Victor says:

    What is the size for when you use it for events?

  58. Ian says:

    There is a spelling error in the .jpg it’s in the info for the Profile specs. The error is “lotoks” it should say “looks.”

  59. meke says:

    Thank you so very much!

  60. pt says:

    http://www.facebook.com/help/photos/photo-viewer “Resize your photo before you upload it. These are the sizes we support: Regular photos 720 px, 960 px, 2048 px”
    That’s not very clear, I guess that means they will display the full 2048×2048 if the display allows it? Their documentation previously said that the High Quality was only for downloads but it looks like this maybe changed. The big pictures look really good on the fullscreen setting.

  61. pt says:

    Hey Priit Kallas could you check on your Pictures displayed in Facebook dimensions. The number is definitely incorrect. I resized and sharpened an entire directory of images based on your numbers and now it all has to be redone. Please correct this mistake ASAP so that others don’t have the same problem. I’m thinking max width of 1478px and max height of 1060px on 1900×1200 display resolution but I don’t know if that is correct or if different display resolutions change this.

  62. sannidhi says:

    Thanks much for sharing!

  63. pt says:

    when I right click on one of my wall photos in slideshow view it shows Dimensions: 1557px × 1086px (scaled to 1478px × 1031px) this is making me think that your value of 960×720 for Pictures displayed in Facebook is incorrect. Maybe it is different for different display sizes? Mine is 1900×1200.

  64. Gemma says:

    Does anyone know what the new dimensions are for the tabs on timeline? When you click onto existing tabs (in timeline) just need to know w x h if anyone knows.

    Many thanks

  65. Prashanth says:

    how can i increase the size of my profile picture….

  66. Dana says:

    I just printed this. You rock. Thank you for doing this!!

  67. trine says:

    Thank you so much for the great info. However I do have a question to the “About” section in the new design as I would like to state my info on 3 lines but it won’t allow me to use the “return” button and puts all my text in one long line, why?

    • Priit Kallas says:

      Try shift+return

    • trine says:

      shift + return does not seem to work in the new timeline version. Any other ideas?
      It seems like we have 3 lines available for text but that you can’t make a line break?

  68. PixieDust says:

    First of all, let me say Thank you very much for making this cheat sheet and for this very useful website. I have a question, though, and I’m not sure if it got covered up there^. The question is, is there any way to modify the cover images for the “Friends”, “Photos”, “Map”, etc., thumbnails/quick links when you enable Timeline? If so, do you know what the correct size of the images would be? Thank you so much!

    • Mart Prööm says:

      Hi! Unfortunately, Facebook doesn’t allow users to change the thumbnails of the default applications such as photos, likes, map, etc.

    • PixieDust says:

      Boo that sucks! Thanks for replying to my comment, by the way! It would be so awesome if Facebook changed their mind about this. :/

    • Mart Prööm says:

      Totally agree with you – it would be awesome. I don’t see Facebook doing this in the near future though.

  69. Luxe says:

    The downloadable PDF does not match the screenshot image used in the article. It looks like it’s the old Facebook cheat sheet still.

  70. CraL says:

    amazing share 🙂

  71. Webdesign Waldshut says:

    Great job. Very good to know. Thx a lot.

  72. Stacey Harmon says:

    This is SO very helpful…thank you. I’m also looking for the size of the images that display when you highlight a post that is a photo (the same as milestone photo dimensions?) and the optimal size of a photo to display when a photo post is “pinned” to the top of the new page timeline. I’m noticing that when you upload an image it will display nicely in the light box, but it gets cropped when you display it on the timeline. I’m looking to design an image that can be “pinned” to the top of a page and look optimal, without having to click on it to view it in light box mode. Any suggestions?

    • Mart Prööm says:

      Hi Stacey, the highlight post image is the same as milestone image which is 843px * 403px. If your image is bigger than that, it will be scaled down.

      Pinned to the top size is not scaled (resized) by Facebook. The image container size is 403px * 403px but Facebook takes the wrap from the centre of the image (meaning the edges will be cut).

    • Gordon says:

      As a follow-up to my reply above, I’ve just discovered that if I export from Photoshop as a png, the quality is much, much better when posted to FB.

  73. Mossy says:

    Thanks! This article was extremely helpful!

    I just tried to download your PDF and it is still referencing the old Facebook dimensions (not seeing what it is in your JPG in the article). Is there a new link?

    • Mart Prööm says:

      Hi Mossy, thank you for commenting. We’re aware that the sizes in the pdf (and JPG for that matter) are not up to date. We are working on a new and improved cheat sheet and hopefully will switch it out any time now. The sizes in the body of the article are accurate, though.

    • Greg Cooper says:

      Any update on this? I’d love to have a cheat sheet.

  74. Marge Brown says:

    Hi Heather, I have one word to say, BRILLIANT!

    OK, here is another, THANK YOU so much. This cheat sheet will be invaluable. Sharing information like this is one of the reasons that I continue to follow you.

  75. Sharon says:

    Thanks, this is very helpful.

  76. Zlatko says:

    I found how it is done in timeline view… I don’t believe… Who was the moron who “invented” Timeline?
    Well, anyway, I found out that in order to change the app logo I had to go to Admin Panel-> Manage->Edit Page-> (left menu)Apps-> Find my application in list and then -> Edit settings.
    Why? Because Edit settings from Timeline view on my page for my application doesn’t work. That is If I go and pull down the menu in timeline view and click on a little pencil.

    Ah, this sucks :/

  77. Zlatko says:

    This is super weird!
    I’m using photoshop and made a logo for my application “usluge”.
    When I set up the sizes for application logo as you described my application logo gets clipped on all margins. Now, if I put height (!!): 111px I get my app logo stretched from bottom to top with no clipping but it clips left and right to 74px no matter which width I put! It looks like 111 px is height, not width 🙁

  78. Dee-Dee MacLeod-Wilson says:

    Thank you Priit for this well executed cheat sheet… saved me from doing one myself. Exciting times ahead for Facebook Page owners.

  79. Erik Giberti says:

    Nice collection of sizes and specs for designers. One note you might add is the cover image shows up differently depending on browser window size. Narrow browsers show less of the cover on the initial page load. I added that to a Photoshop PSD for designers who want an easy way to get started with Timeline. http://af-design.com/blog/2012/03/01/transitioning-a-facebook-page-to-timeline/

    612px x 612px seems to to the trick. Still need to test further. Thanks! 🙂

  81. Lori M. says:

    Any idea how to size images so they are not cut off in the timeline – see www.facebook.com/lorimercerphotography? I’ve been sizing them to 720px wide but I would love to figure out a way to size them so they show up without cutting off for best impact.

    • Mart Prööm says:

      Hi Lori. Have you tried 520px width? To be honest, I haven’t tested it myself, yet.

    • Priit Kallas says:

      Seems that the only way it to make sure all the important things are in the middle square area.

  82. Nenad Maljkovic says:

    Great tool, thank you! 🙂

    Please note that cheat sheet .pdf and .jpg do not match. And I can open only small version of .jpg picture.

  83. Mon Sun C says:

    OMG Thank you so much. I’ve been trying to figure out myself and was struggling with it. Now it is so much easier! Thank you

  84. Jason says:

    I tried the cover photo image size you stated in this post, the 851×315, and it kept looking resized. When I did a screen capture and pulled it into photoshop, it said the image was 1021×377. Not sure where the issue lies with me or the post.

    • Jason says:

      Plz disregard! I must have zoomed in to check something out and never reset the view. That’s why I was grabbing a larger image. Duh.

  85. Elja says:

    There are social shopping sites, a simple objective to get the right information quickly is luboh.com it allows people to ask and tell their selected friends and also tell the world anonymously. Useful for people anywhere in the world to find how much products and services cost and where they can get them from. It also has price comparisons within a geolocation.

    Character limit is no longer 420.

  93. Randall Wilburn says:

    Thanks for sharing this. I will be sure to link to this from my blog for others to use. Very helpful.


  94. KT says:

    Any thoughts on adding a favicon to your FB business page? Like how to do it?

  95. zambanini says:

    the thumbnail size is wrong.
    facebook posts thumbnails till 115 x 115 pixel

  96. Marc Lucas says:

    Facebook have recently increased the status limit to a ridiculous 63206 characters as I’m sure you know but that certainly doesn’t detract from this being a great little tool, thanks.

    I have included it in the SMB Social Media Monitor (http://www.scoop.it/t/smb-social-media-monitor).

  97. michael kamleitner says:

    great & up2date work!

    one small addition: we just discovered that the post-thumbnail on mobile (at least the iphone-app) is cropped to something like 90×80.

  98. Patrick C says:

    Great & valuable information, this isn’t the first post from you that inspires or helps me : thanks!

  99. Tanya Woods says:

    Thanks so much for this! I’ve been collecting notes and snippets for months. It fabulous to now have it all in one file.

  100. Yousri Rifai says:

    Thanks for this great information , Regards

  101. Shai says:

    As for “Pictures displayed in Facebook” goes, they changed this sometime in August 2011 … its now 960px for landscape photos.

    You can read about it here in their official blog:

    I hope you concur and correct this.

    • Priit Kallas says:

      Sorry, Shai! We changed the PDF and JPG but the text in the post itself was not updated. Thanks for letting us know. Fixed now!

  102. Gene Evangelist says:

    Does anyone know the exact pixel height
    of the area to the right of the profile picture area
    above the iframe area
    where the name of the business is located ?

    Gene Evangelist

    • Dave Nattriss says:

      There is no fixed/definite height to that, because the browser renders the text using its own fonts, so it will vary from browser to browser and depending on what zoom settings each user is using. Also if the brand and tab names are long, they will go onto two (or more) lines.

  103. Michael Williams says:

    What sizes should the photos that appear above the status updates? Thanks and have a groovy day!

  104. Ryan says:

    Great tool, thanks for sharing what must have taken a few hours to put together!

  105. Dave Nattriss says:

    Yes, I’m afraid you did miss something: application canvas pages – 760 pixels wide, unlimited height.

    Johan (above) is wrong about IFRAMES in app. You can have unlimited length if you put in the relevant Javascript in your page to tell Facebook to make the page adapt automatically. See various examples I’ve built at http://www.facebook.com/natts.com

  106. fran says:

    Thanks for the cheat sheet, what a great idea to keep you reminded of it all.

  107. Johan says:

    The height of Facebook iframe apps are not unlimited though, 700 px or so

  108. Francis says:

    I single picture over 2000px in height will cause a repeat.

  109. Priit Kallas says:

    Thanks, Karin and Cindy! Yes, Karin, you can use it and a link would be nice.

  110. cindy slick says:

    Terrific information thank you for sharing. I have been wondering about this for a while and you made it so simple thank you. Cindy

  111. Karin says:

    Thanks, that is very useful information. I hope you don’t mind if I use it for my Social Traffic Club (with your link of course).

  112. Priit Kallas says:

    Thanks for adding that, Syed!

  113. Syed says:

    Nice Post Pritt,

    Guess you just missed the allowed no. of character in Facebook Questions.

    It is 170 words.

    Here’s my Article on FB questions: http://www.socialmediasimplify.com/2011/05/how-to-utilize-facebook-questions-best.html



  114. Priit Kallas says:

    Thank you for letting me know, Casey. Fixed!

  115. Casey says:

    The text link for the PDF doesn’t work. However, the image link works.


  116. Michelle says:
