Ever before question why some Facebook cover pictures look far better compared to others on mobile? The response is constantly a great developer (not that I'm biased or anything), but I lately uncovered a clever method to help less of your effort get cut off when checking out from a mobile phone-- and also still look fantastic on desktop computer.
Horrible as I go to bearing in mind numbers, I'm constantly googling "FB cover photo size" (or seeing our quick-reference infographic), as well as the initial solution that constantly pops up is 851 × 315, which is exactly what the cover photo presents at on a desktop browser. If your only worry is desktop, this is a fine dimension to submit your cover picture. Sadly, we could not overlook the 798 million customers that access Facebook daily via their mobile phones.
Prior to I found this trick, options for optimizing a cover photo for both desktop & mobile were very limited: either make the focal point really small to show effectively on mobile, or make it look good on desktop computer and also give up the mobile experience.
OK, I'll reduce to the chase. Submit a picture that is 851 × 475. With cover photos taller compared to desktop shows, 2 points occur:.
Desktop cuts off the leading & bottom of the photo (the good news is, it removes an equal amount from both).
Mobile will certainly still remove several of the sides of the picture, but we have a substantially bigger readable location.
