Which is the best resolution for Facebook avatar and cover in Photoshop because I have tried 300 / 1000 / 1500, but it looks horrible, please give me the exact HD resolution for each.
Cover photo is 851px x 315px
Profile photo is recommended to be uploaded at 180 px x 180 px but is displayed at 160px x 160px
It's all of course 72ppi since its online usage.
A handy page for this is: https://www.facebook.com/CoverPhotoSize
The official facebook page with much of this information and more is: https://www.facebook.com/help/search/?q=cover+guidelines
The resolution is 72ppi, as any normal image prepared for the web (ignoring retina display screens).
That being said, if you look through Facebook's recommendations, you'll see that the basics are the following:
- Image in PNG format
- sRGB colour profile
- Image should be less than 99Kb
I did this for the covers for my Facebook pages with excellent results.
