Facebook Image Sizes that you Need to know

In 2021, what are all the Facebook images sizes that you need to know? Ok, consider this your one-stop guide to everything from photo size cover on Facebook to picture size of profile, ad sizes, and more.

In the beginning, Facebook was all text and links floating through your stream with the occasional baby picture. With the evolving trends in social media, however, visual content has become a dominant force and with the trends, the world’s largest social network has grown.

It’s a dizzying, frustrating challenge to keep up with the ever-changing picture sizes and formats on Facebook.

But I do have you covered. In this post, I’m going to send you the most detailed and up-to-date references to the ideal sizes and measurements of Facebook photos.

With that said, let’s dive in!

Facebook Profile Picture Size (Profiles & Pages)

Profile images will not only appear on your Facebook timeline (a.k.a. profile page) unlike cover pictures, but will also appear on each post you share, every comment you leave, in search results for Facebook, and on the timeline of people where you post messages. It’s going to be a tiny thumbnail in most situations, so you want to crop it correctly.
