What Size is A Facebook Cover Photo

If you have a Facebook page, you may wish to custom layout the Cover photo. Picasa's Collage device is a fantastic way to do this. If you are a Geeks on Tour member, we recently made a complete  ‘Short Course’ on using the Collage tool. What Size Is A Facebook Cover Photo.

What Size Is A Facebook Cover Photo.

The key to making a Facebook Timeline cover image is the measurements. Or, more especially the ratio of the length to size, called the Facet Ratio. A little bit of study transforms up the fact that Facebook's suitable proportion is 851X315. Not certain why it's 851-- that seems a bit odd to me. 850X315 functions fine.

To accomplish this with Picasa, you require to set a custom aspect ratio. On either the Crop measurements drop-down box, or the Page Format drop-down box, you'll see the ability to 'Add Personalized Aspect Proportion' below the listing. Choose that as well as just get in 850X315. See a previous tip: Resizing a Picture’s Height and Width.

Actions for a Collage to be a Facebook cover image.

1. The correct aspect proportion for a Facebook cover photo is 850X315 (see guide video clip: Resizing Pictures to width and height) Use the page style readying to transform to that ratio.

2. Re-crop the background picture to the 850/315 proportion too.

3. Reduce as well as relocate 3 little photos to bottom right in order to make area for your account picture (character) in Facebook.

4. Produce collage, then Export results. Select 850 as the export dimension (this is not called for, Facebook will resize as long as the proportions are right.).

5. Log into facebook and also float over your cover image, click where it claims 'Change Cover' and Publish the exported collage.

6. Save Changes.
