Sharpen Up on FB

Facebook may not be the best place to show off your photography, but it is still a fantastic way to quickly share snaps with close friends and family. After all, not everyone is on Flickr.

You’ve likely noticed that FB compresses photos causing minor, but super irritating, artifacts. Which basically negates all the hours you spent editing them to perfection. GUH.

There is a way to ensure your photos come out looking sharp on FB. Three ways, actually!

  • 1. Upload 2048px size photos, you’ll get less compression.
  • 2. Don’t sharpen the image beforehand.
  • 3. Upload PNG, rather than JPG.

Read about the how and why these tips work in this article by Photoshelter, and start uploading pics to FB without losing your hard-earned quality.
