Completely disagree with you on this izzy

Facebook compresses the images that you put up including your cover photo, doubling the size of the image causes the compressor to give better quality as it is now working with double the amount of pixels.

Here is a an image uploaded at 851px wide

and here is the 1702px wide version

you will notice a sharper image in the 1702px version

Yes, true, I can see a sharper image on bigger one. Badicly This how any vector software treat images by resizing it to smaller dimensions. It reduces numbers of pixels so any line looks sharper, just like when drawing on a balloon when it’s blown, and then if you empty the air the lines looks so sharp.I usually solve the matter of sharpness by using sharpen filter, it’ll be same at the end.

but there’s some issues with auto resizing too. If our cover designs are not “pixel perfect”. In resizing we will loose the quality. Anyway the facebook Automaticly ruin anything bigger or exact size, when it compresses the image saves it under 50% quality I think, it’s not what we designed at the end.

I think this is worth reading too: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2011/04/14/mastering-photoshop-pixel-perfection-when-rotating-pasting-and-nudging/

This thread has got me confused now. I’ve created Facebook Timelines at 850×315. Have the file dimensions changed since to double that? Or is that a creator preference to make the file larger to ease editing and have the buyer resize?

Do not worry. This is just a discussion regarding the loss of quality when these covers are uploaded to facebook. Since many authors say that they’ve never got any complaint from buyers about quality with 851×315 pixels, you can upload those you’ve already created.

Though before creating any new templates in future, you can try out these different dimensions listed here and test it out yourself if they work or not. Also try to figure out which is more popular between buyers.

Rest assured, there’s nothing wrong with the dimensions you’ve created them in and you can upload them without hesitation. Although, I think it’s 851×315 pixels and not 850. I might be wrong though.

There is certainly nothing to worry about and/or absolutely no need to use any other size other than the FACEBOOK STANDARD SIZE and normal screen resolution 72Dpi.
