If so, just go forward with me and bookmark this article, for I search all the latest required header sizes here of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. You will find it easier to create them in appropriate sizes rather than on each of site to adjust your image’s dimensions.

Example of computer display:

We all know that not every cover image is a home run for Facebook, sometimes your image quality may appear slightly grainy or distorted (for a common image size is not fit to Facebook cover, the Official Facebook cover size is 851 pixels wide by 315 pixels tall). Therefore, how to design the best-looking cover photo that takes advantage of the exact size and shape is above all.


  • 1.   The Facebook cover size should be 851 pixels by 315 pixels on your computer (640 pixels wide by 360 pixels tall on smartphones).
  • 2.   The Facebook profile photo measures 160 pixels by 160 pixels and will overlay part of the left bottom portion of the Facebook header image (140 pixels wide by 140 pixels tall on smartphones).

  • Note:  The image quality may appear slightly grainy or distorted if you not use the Facebook cover size in correct and take advantage of the exact shape. The image loads fastest as an sRGB JPG file that's 851 pixels wide, 315 pixels tall and less than 100 kilobytes. For profile pictures and cover photos with your logo or text, you may get a better result by using a PNG file.
