720, 960, 2048 pixels wide

These are the optimal sizes for photos you upload to Facebook. I had no idea. I knew that FB automatically resizes and formats your photos, but did not know these were the magic numbers. Also:

  • Resize your photo to one of the following supported sizes:
    Regular photos: 720px, 960px, 2048px (width)
    Cover photos: 851px by 315px
  • If you use a 2048px photo, select the High Quality option when you upload
    To avoid compression when you upload your cover photo (emphasis mine), make sure the file size is less than 100KB
  • Save your image as a JPEG with an sRGB color profile

Cökelek salad


At our friend Turgay’s house having this wonderful Turkish salad with tomato, onion, parsley, mint and Cökelek cheese from Hatai, Turkey. This regional cheese is smoked, fermented, and has an otherworldly funk about it. Absolutely delicious.
