Facebook can be tricky for social media experts and graphic designers. The dimensions for Facebook’s image-heavy platform change frequently, and neglecting to stay in the loop about these changes can make or break engagement levels.
Thankfully, TechWyse created the below infographic to provide those in need with a complete guide on every image dimension on Facebook. This downloadable and printable infographic can be pinned to your desk or hung in your office for quick reference.
Images are crucial to social engagement. Users will simply ignore your ads and posts if they are pixelated or contain clumsy text. As well, if your images don’t fit Facebook’s dimensions, portions of your text or image could be completely out of frame – making for confusing posts or ads.
This Facebook image sizes infographic covers everything from profile and cover photos to shared images and links, sponsored posts, event images, videos and more. There are also some tips provided throughout the infographic. For example, narrow shared images may have some gray space.
For event images, ensure that you meet the 20% text limit. Neglecting to follow this rule could lead to your posts getting lower organic and paid reach. It’s also important to note that if your image is smaller than 470x246px, it will automatically render as a thumbnail.

For example, a page post has the recommended upload size of 1200x900px, however this post will display as 626x840px on mobile – this is important to note as responsive design is the key to your success on social media.
