  1. Terry, thanks for sharing this. I have a problem though. I’m great with creating the cover until I upload it. Then, Facebook overwrites it with a somewhat blurry image.

    My cover is exactly 851px X 315px. I have tried it as a png, and uploading that created a lot of graininess in the solid regions. Then I tried a jpeg, which was better but still not the same quality I had uploaded. So, I assume there’s some resampling going on.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    1. FB compresses the heck out of uploaded photos. If the quality of your image is suffering, then you might want to NOT use save for web and use the regular Save command instead to save a higher quality JPG for uploading.
