What should I know about the dimensions?

The cover photo displays at 820 pixels wide by 312 pixels tall on your Facebook Page. This is only for computers though. On a smartphone it displays at 640 pixels wide and 360 pixels tall.

So what size should you upload in?

You should always upload in the biggest size you can as this will give the best result. One thing to keep in mind is that on smartphones your cover photo will be cropped slightly on the horizontal axis. One way to solve this is to center important visuals and text in the image.

A good way to check everything before you release it is to create a test facebook page. On that page you will be able to check that everything looks good before making it public. That way you will also be able to see how it looks on a smartphone.
