Facebook image tips

  • To avoid any distortion, upload a JPG or PNG file.
  • Use the recommended pixel sizes for the fastest load times.
  • Profile pictures and cover photos with logos or text work best when uploaded as a PNG file.
  • Don’t drag to reposition once you’ve uploaded your cover photo.
  • Stick to these image sizes recommended by Facebook
  • Take advantage of the whole visual real estate Facebook provides
  • Your image or photo appear in full – not cropped.
  • Your CTRs (call to action) are clear and visible.
  • Optimised Facebook post image size will entice viewers to share it to their friends and family or event to screenshot it and publish it on other websites or blogs.
  • Make sure Facebook post images looks great on desktops, laptops, tablets and phones.
  • Facebook Stories take up the full screen of a phone. That’s an aspect ratio of 9:16.
  • Don’t choose an image with a width smaller than 500 pixels.
  • For Stories with text, consider leaving 14% of the top and bottom text-free. (That’s 250 pixels.) That way any call-to-action won’t be covered by your brand’s profile photo or buttons.

Instagram Tips:

  • If you want your images to look their best on Instagram, aim to upload an image that is 1080 pixels wide.
  • When you share an Instagram image that’s sized over 1080 pixels, Instagram will size it down to 1080 pixels.
  • If you share a photo that has a resolution lower than 320 pixels, Instagram will size it up to 320 pixels.
  • If your image is between 320 and 1080 pixels wide, Instagram will keep that photo at its original resolution, “as long as the photo’s aspect ratio is between 1.91:1 and 4:5(a height between 566 and 1350 pixels with a width of 1080 pixels).”
  • If your uploaded Instagram image is a different ratio, the platform will automatically crop your photo to fit a supported ratio.
