Hi guys Recently I created a facebook cover with pixel dimension 1700×630, 300dpi because many authors are now making in this size or resolution. But I’m a bit confused because my item is soft rejected by saying that Reason: The file should be saves in 72 DPI as it is meant for web usage. Also make sure you create the file for the correct Facebook image size.

72 DPI ? I will change that but the same file size 1700×630, 300dpi is already selling on the marketplace?

What to do?

The file should be 72DPI for web use, the file that is up at 300DPI should be reported so the author can fix it.

You could include both sizes.

On the web DPI makes no difference really: http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2010/02/the-myth-of-dpi/

Images on the web are measured in pixels. Yet many people go through the trouble of setting their images to 72 dots per inch (DPI). The process of sizing images for the web is often misunderstood. The misconception about resolution in digital images bound for the web is that they must meet a certain number of dots per inch. In print, pixels per inch and dots per inch impact the size of an image on a page. DPI doesn’t apply to layout on the web. When someone converts an image to 72 DPI , they’re adding an extra step with no benefit. Web pages are measured in pixels, not real-world units such as inches.

1702×630px 72dpi is the size you want to upload

as for the dpi I agree it is not much use in web but what people do is they create a file at 72dpi and then increase the dpi by image resizing which in turn increases the file pixel size.

No client has ever complained about quality degradation with the “851px x 315px” size. That seems to work just fine.

I myself have tested it and there is a big difference

even if a client is complaining you should try and get the highest quality possible

I would do the 1700×630 and if they reject again submit a ticket, because that is clearly the size. As for dpi i have no clue? I think 300 would be fine, but just to be sure use 72

This is very obvious guys, whatever your dimensions are, the facebook resize it exactly to 851×315’ so why don’t we design it at that size in first place, there would be no different in quality , because at last you are seeing it at 851×315. Pixels are pixels, its not print that resolution matters. Also we are not designing it for devices with various ppi. So its what it is. 851×315.

Another thing, if you are trying to design somthing for web based on pixel and with screen output, DPI has nothing to do with anything. By the way That’s a little unprofessional to design something for view, like mockups, and using a “300 DPI ” quote as an item feature.
