Handy Guidelines

  • Don’t clutter your banner, simple is good.
  • Remember not to fill the bottom left of your banner that’s where your photo goes!
  • A little text goes a long way!

Facebook Cover Foundation

  • Create a file at 300 DPI (Dots Per Inch) resolution as all DigitalART suppliedare at that resolution.
  • You will convert the image to the appropriate resolution at the end of the process.
  • It’s never a good idea to use two different resolutions – it just does not work!

Facebook Banner Size Recommendation.

Width: 851 pixels

Height: 215 Pixels

Resolution: 72 Pixels/inch. (DPI )

Create Your Facebook Cover

In Adobe Photoshop or Elements:

  • Go to File> New
  • Name the file: Facebook Banner
  • Enter 851 x 217 with a resolution 72 (Pixels/Inch)
  • Click OK
  • Go to SAVE AS and save the template using a file name that describes the banner e.g Facebook Banner_72dpi.
  • Save as a .psd file and NOT .jpg file

Without closing out the template:

  • Go to Image> Image Size.
  • Change just the Pixels/Inch box from 72 to 300.

Note. This will change the resolution and increase the pixel size. You will probably have to make your template smaller in Photoshop by zooming out (CMD or CTRL minus -).

Your template is now the correct size for adding DigitalART supplies

It’s personal preference on how you ‘feed’ your template.
