How I upload the best quality photos to Facebook 2023
Facebook provides a great opportunity to showcase our photography skills to a global audience, including our loved ones, and clients. However, as photographers, we often notice that our images appear compressed and lose their crispness and details once they are uploaded onto Facebook.
Given the huge number of images that are shared on Facebook on a daily basis, the platform uses compression algorithms to handle the load. Unfortunately, these algorithms apply the same level of compression to high-resolution photos, which can be frustrating for photographers like us. That’s why you’re here reading this post – to find a solution! As you may have noticed, Facebook supports only 720px, 960px, or 2048px on the long edge, which means that larger images are inevitably compressed. So here’s how to work around those compression issues!
In this video, I’ll show you how to upload the best quality photos to Facebook! We want our work to look awesome. Now you’ll learn how to optimize your photos for Facebook. It’s a simple process that uses photoshop and the Bicubic sharper downscaling option!
