Join Von Glitschka for an in-depth discussion in this video Posting images on Facebook, part of Social Media for Graphic Designers.
- [Instructor] In this movie, I wanna cover…how to post images on your Facebook page.…So we're in Photoshop right now…and I just wanna show you one of the images…I'm gonna be posting on my Facebook page.…Now, Facebook suggested image size is 1200 pixels wide…by 630 pixels tall.…That's the ratio they recommend…when you're posting images to your timeline…but I'm gonna show you that that's not a hard and fast rule.…
Matter of fact, I ignore it all the time.…I've never aligned to it.…So if I go to Image and I go to Size here,…you can see this one is 3264 pixels wide.…Facebook says it should be 1200…so this is way larger than what they recommend…and you know what?…It's not gonna make a difference at all.…Matter of fact, it's gonna look great…once I post it on Facebook.…So I just wanted to post that out…because a lot of people get hung up…on well, what resolution does it have to be?…Well, anything going on screen should be 72 pixels per inch.…
It's on screen, that's what the resolution on screen.…I know there's some aspect ratios and stuff…
