I've searched and searched, and all I can find for the maximum size of a picture on Facebook is the (old) 2048x2048 pixel maximum.

However, I just downloaded a picture posted to a Facebook Group, that was surprisingly 4041x1037. (January 20, 2020)

I've heard rumblings about Facebook doing some more changes, so this seems to be true.

Does anyone know what the new maximum pixel dimensions are? Thanks.

  • Here's the relevant official facebook help page on image sizes: facebook.com/help/266520536764594 - And this related page: facebook.com/help/187741037945488 mentions uploading "HD" photos to albums. Obviously, I have no idea if the information is still up to date. They make no mention of a "maximum" image size, nor what "HD" is supposed to mean. I think you should probably ask facebook about this for a definitive answer. – Billy Kerr Jan 22 at 16:42
  • @BillyKerr The first link appears to answer it, which shows the max at 2048, still. And since posting my question, I have done some experimenting on my own, and I can't get it to go beyond 2048. So it might still be valid. Which then begs the question, how did someone else get an image larger than that to stick? Does posting to groups allow larger images? Hmm. (Anyway, thanks for the direct link!) – John Ward Jan 23 at 4:41
