Facebook Banner Size
The Facebook banner measurements are still 851 x 315 pixels. This is based on the web site code, yet not in the real pixel design seen on display grabs viewed at 800% in Photoshop. Those measurements are in fact 851 x 313 px. (notification how the vertical dimensions amount to 313; 170 + 143?). It can obtain a little complicated, so I did some examinations to ensure precision.
Submitting a picture that is 851 x 313 px will in fact be upsampled and also result in a loss in top quality. So do not do that. Only make use of those dimensions if you are designing a design in PS or developing a template.
Publishing a picture that is 851 x 315 px will certainly be much far better, as well as you will barely see compression artefacts other than with particular colours that might look plain or downright hideous.
Posting an image that is 1702 x 630 px shows up to a little degrade photo top quality and is only essential if you plan to readjust it later on.
After checking out the outcomes at 500% in PS it appears like there is a refined loss of information and also raised compression artifacts in the rendition of the larger 1702 x 630 px photo, potentially due to a Facebook processing algorithm. It appears that the indigenous size looks a little a lot more precise. But once again, this goes to 500% and also there isn't actually a perceivable difference. The advantage of publishing a somewhat bigger picture size indicates you'll have a bit extra flexibility with scaling and cropping. Nevertheless, if you are taking care of tiny text or graphics, you may wish to stick to the native size.
I made an animated gif that demonstrates how the 1702 x 630 px data weakens picture quality and also makes little message less clear.
Many recognizable is the shift that takes place on the bigger variation, and also if you look very closely at the actually little text, it looks a whole lot cleaner in the image submitted in the native resolution. Personally, I'm now far more inclined to submit files at the indigenous resolution.
Currently on "pages" it appears like the profile photo is still at 160 ² px yet it is two pixels reduced and one pixel to the left when as compared to the personal profile web page. Very little of a distinction, and also definitely much less various than the previous web pages style.
