Artist Facebook Page Image Size Guide
Your cover photo is the image that showcases your brand and logo. Take some time in designing this. As an artist, you will be able to be very creative.

Facebook Cover Photo Update 2017
There have been some exciting changes with Facebook in 2017.
The first change was allowing users to create clickable cover photos. This new change allows Page owners to be more creative with their cover photo.
The next change was expected. Videos have become very popular online and Facebook is taking advantage of this. They are now allowing Page owners to create a video introduction for their cover photo.
Here are some detailed posts about these new and exciting changes:
Your profile image size is 160 pixels wide by 160 pixels high. If your image is too large you will be able to crop it to make it fit. You can also resize your image using PicMonkey a free online image editing site.
The News Feed image size is 1,200 pixels wide by 900 pixels high. You can add text to your image but Facebook only allows up to 20% of the text on an image.
What if your image does not fit the Facebook’s Newsfeed Dimensions?
There will be times that you will notice that the image of your artwork does not fit the dimensions. In a situation like this use a blank canvas in PicMonkey, sized at 1,200 pixels wide x 900 pixels high and add your image in the middle of the canvas.
When your followers see the image, they will be able to see the entire image of your artwork with a white background that will not distract your art.
