Facebook Timeline Picture Size

The Ultimate Guide to Facebook Timeline Image Dimensions & Sizes 2014 (Infographic)

Because I refer to this chart often, I decided to include it here on as a reference for you (and yes, for me too…). My friend Louise Myers has produce an excellent infographic detailing all of the key sizes we need, including:

  • Facebook Cover Photo: 851 x 315 (I’m glad they added that extra pixel on the width)
  • Profile Picture Size: 160 x 160 (or up to 180 x 180 to upload)
  • Custom Tab Image Size: 111 x 74
  • Shared Image: 403 x 504 (max)
  • Link previews: 90 x 90
  • Milestone or Highlighted Post: 843 x 504
  • Full Image on a Custom Tab: 810 x 1200

Until Facebook changes, you need no other reference. And when they do, I’ll check back with Louise! Enjoy…

Thanks for sharing this post here it is very worth reading and applicable to everyone. Choosing facebook timeline does matter especially when you talk about promoting business online because people are so fond of looking at pictures before setting up an interaction with the business itself.

Do you have new size guidelines for the shared image on a timeline now that you can add more than one photo?
