Looking for the best Facebook image specs? If you are running ads on Facebook in 2020 and looking for the up to date Facebook image dimensions, you are the right place

As I run Facebook and Instagram ads every day, I have to keep myself updated with these sizes and formats. The social image sizes mentioned everywhere are a bit too generic which is why I put together a detailed post explaining each of the post types and their dimensions.

You can not manage a Facebook page ad without the right sizes handy at all times.

Facebook has provided the formats and sizes for images posted on the timeline and the guidelines for the ad images like the 20% text rule. These requirements need to be addressed before you post them on Facebook or Instagram.

The sizes and dimensions are organized according to their formats. These sizes are updated frequently with the change in the Facebook interface and layout updates.

Facebook’s latest update showed changes in video upload size which is now 4GB.
