Most people who run a Facebook page or group might have noticed recently, that their cover images have been looking a little funny lately. That is because Facebook has decided to (once again) change the size of header / cover images! I’m not sure why this might be – it could be to accommodate responsive layouts. It’s a bit early to tell.

So what do you do?

Well, if you’re like me, you hop into Canva, and re-size ALL your Facebook cover photos. Luckily, Canva makes this rather painless – just a bit of minor tweaking, and voila! New images that are properly sized.

What are the new dimensions that Facebook uses for cover photos?

Glad you asked! It hasn’t been officially released (as far as I can tell), but I’ve test a few, and some other sources have individuated that 820 x 430px works well.

So, give it a try and see what the new photo looks like, and adjust accordingly.
