Facebook Finally Increases Photo Sizes

Facebook Photo Gallery Size

It’s been a long time coming, but according to the Facebook Developers’ page, Facebook users can expect larger photo sizes beginning tomorrow with a complete roll out finalized over the next three weeks. While its not a huge increase in size (604 pixels to 720 pixels) any increase in size is better than not!

For those of you with Facebook applications that query the photo FQL table or uses photo.get, make sure you update your code to accommodate these new increased sizes.

One of the interesting things, however, is the size of the profile picture will be getting smaller! Profile pictures will move from 200×600 to 180×540 pixels. Again, for you developers, be sure to adjust your applications accordingly.

As one of the largest photo-sharing sites on the web, it’s nice to see Facebook increasing it’s pixel space, even if the increase isn’t as large as we would all like it.
