I’ve been going loony trying to upload my logo (200 px by 600 px), and client logos, to our Facebook Pages unsuccessfully. Nothing I tried worked!
I finally found this blog post – Making the most of your Facebook page profile picture – which proved to me that images, picture, photos, and logos with the 200 px by 600 px dimensions, were still being uploaded. There was obviously something some of us were missing, and here it is…
If you’re trying to upload the above dimensions, and are getting this error:
“Upload Failed: Your picture is too tall or too wide. Try to pick something closer to a square.”
It’s because Facebook no longer allows images to be 200 pixels wide by 600 pixels high. The new dimensions are 180 pixels wide by 540 pixels high, which was changed May 3, 2010. You can find this on their developer site, under Developer Roadmap, which states:
“We’re changing the size of the largest profile picture to 180 pixels wide by 540 pixels high (down from 200 pixels by 600 pixels).”
It worked! You can see a sample here: KMBurck Facebook Page
And now, I’m going to relax, knowing that Monday I can upload my client logos without issues!
Please let me know, in the comment section, if this helped or if you need any assistance.
Thank you, and have a GREAT weekend!
