I know that Facebook reduces the resolution for Facebook cover page and profile picture. However, I have noticed that there are many Pages that uploaded beautiful Cover photo without any reduced resolution (apparently).
You guys can also check out these pages, they have pretty awesome looking Timeline photos!
I've tried using the "magic" size format of 850 x 350 , but it seems that the quality will still be reduced no matter what. The above pages' photos are always pretty clear and not blur like normal pages.
Can anyone help me to inspect and suggest how I can do the same? Thank you
those are pngs, hence the lack of jpeg artefacts. did they come straight from facebook? i can't check from work.
most of the time you see 'pixellation' on facebook its because its compressing whatever you upload into a low quality jpeg, not because of resolution.
sorry but I'm not sure what you really mean. I'm just asking about how those pages can upload the pictures at such good quality without being severely affected by the stupid Facebook system. I tried using PNG before but cannot do the same. btw, I don't know what "work" you're talking about, if those above, then they are not my work @@
Here is what I do (its a little different as we use an image and vector art): https://www.facebook.com/KellyCookRealEstateGroup?ref=hl
In your final version "save for web"- png24 open in photoshop verify your size of 850x351 at 72 dpi.
If your size and resolution is good, upload the .png This has proven to get the best results. Also when you create your art make sure that you have checked "align to pixel grid".

i mean I'm at my job, where facebook is blocked. 'at work' is unfamiliar vernacular?
Oh, I misunderstood, I didn't know you were at work. I thought "check from work" meant that you cannot check just by looking at my "work" (the photos attached). No big deal, dont take it to seriously
