Facebook event cover image size

Facebook image sizes

This month Facebook has changed the event page cover image size, Admins on an event page will now have the option to add a timeline cover.

This new layout is a great way to really show off the artwork for your event, whereas before you just had a small image in the top left-hand corner, your Facebook event page will now have the same size image as the timeline cover feature on your profile page. In my opinion as a Graphic designer who has quite a lot of clients in the events promotions sector this is great, my artwork now takes prime position on the event page and really gives my clients the chance to get have an awesome looking event page.

Unlike personal profiles and fan pages, events now only have the option for one large photo, not a cover photo and a profile picture. The cover photo will shrunk to thumbnail size when the event appears in News Feed.

Here is an example of how one of our clients (Skrewface Promotions) has used this new feature on an upcoming event:

The Flyer Master | UK Graphic Design

I have found that the best size to go for is the same as the timeline cover for a page (850px x 315px) but i would tend to increase this to reduce pixelation so i create at 1700px x 630px
