Facebook Picture Cheat Sheet

Posted on May 18, 2013 | No Comments

Facebook has been a wonderful platform to share photographs. I know I look forward to seeing many. However, what people don’t realize is that when they upload a photo – FB will default it to fit but that might cut off a face, fingers, or that beautiful sunset that was the entire reason you wanted to share the picture to begin with.

Here are a few Facebook picture sizes that will help you format your photo the way it was intended to be seen.
