Facebook Cover Photo: The Basics

Facebook Cover Photo Specs


Facebook will not resize your cover photo when users switch from desktop to mobile, vice versa. Instead, they will crop out the sides so the photo fits the respective mobile/desktop dimensions. To overcome this problem, Offeo has a one size fits all cover photo dimension for you to use, so you can design without worrying about your images being cropped out.
