A Word about Pixels...
A pixel is a unit of measurement used in digital imaging. It is the smallest controllable element of a picture represented on a digital screen. Facebook uses pixels to specify image sizes however they will automatically scale an image down to fit. We have given you image sizes in inches as well that are the proper ratio for easy use.

Cover Photo 851 x 315 pixels
(you could use an image 6.75” x 2.5”)

Profile Picture scaled to 160 x 160 pixels
(use a perfectly square image .75” or bigger)

Apps Images 111 x 74 pixels - add up to 10 apps
(you could use an image 1.5" x 1.0")

Images 403 x 403 pixels
(use a perfectly square image 1.35” x 1.35” for full visibility)

Status Post - max 63,206 characters

  2. For some reason, Facebook will not allow me to update my image for the app. I have tried changing sizes and different variations of types of images ie: jpeg, gif, etc. but keep getting the error message "The image you are trying to upload are invalid. It may be corrupt, of wrong file format or the wrong size.". I have even tried changing the image to one I had previously uploaded for a different app and still get this message. Any suggestions?
