Facebook provides businesses and individuals with an easy way to create brand awareness, promote their products and extend their reach.

Whether you are planning an event, trying to create an online presence or boosting your social media footprint, you should include an image with your posts.

However, Facebook has image guidelines that most people don’t know about. The infographic shown below was created by TechWyse to give you an in-depth explanation of how to access Facebook’s recommended image sizes and dimensions.

With the below cheatsheet your team of social media professionals and graphic designers can easily create Facebook-approved images for mobile ads, profile pictures and shared images.

Since Facebook runs on a continuously updated platform, even the most advanced social media experts and graphic designers encounter difficulty when it comes to image creation.

Facebookalso recently made changes to their business pages, video size, and even event response ad images. Nonetheless, the Cheatsheet infographic found below will give your team the exact dimensions needed for photo creation.

Facebook is populated with images which lead them to come up with varying recommended upload sizes for their platform.

Besides making your ads and images clear and engaging you will have to adhere to the upload sizes to ensure that Facebook doesn’t crop or misalign your visual assets.

For instance, images that are uploaded but don’t meet Facebook’s exact guidelines will be automatically centralized based on where Facebook thinks the center is.

This can cause your ad or post to be cut off, thus, derailing your entire campaign.

Furthermore, any promoted post that has excessive text might not receive as much reach as one with less text on it.

Any block of text that accompanies an image cannot be more than 90 characters otherwise, Facebook will not accept it.

To ensure that your visual assets are well represented on Facebook, click and download, print or bookmark the infographic below.
