How to make a FaceBook cover photo for your personal facebook or for your business page. The facebook cover page is the big picture on top of any facebook page.
The face book cover photo we are going to design will be based on this photo of Ethiopian Airlines hostess.
The Face Book page cover dimension are 851px wide by 315px high. If you make your picture 851px by 315px it will fit perfectly to the slot where it goes.
If the picture or art work is to small facebook will stretch it to fit the space and if the picture is too big facebook will randomly crop your photo. In either case you may not like the end result.
After you made a beautiful art work and spend some time designing a cover photo you don’t want it be chopped in the wrong place or look so grainy and fuzzy when you upload it to your facebook.
Make sure your facebook page cover photo will look great from the start by making sure it's the right dimensions (which are 851 pixels wide and 315 pixels tall, in case you were wondering).
The above face book cover photo shows the name of the company in the right side showing clearly.
The above face book cover photo shows the name of the company in the lower left hand corner partially covered by the logo that is not a good prictice.
Your face book profile photo is the small picture on the lower left hand corner of your facebook cover. Usually it is a portrait of your face or a logo of a company. The profile photo is 180px by 180px, but it shows up as 160 x 160 pixels.
When designing your face book cover photo make sure your profile photo don’t cover important information.
