I get so annoyed when I upload a beautiful edit up to Facebook and it looks all grainy and horrible. So the other day I finally decided to Google what is going on, and after reading a few sites I figured out how to write an action to resize images for Facebook. I do want to say that Facebook changes all of the time so I can't make any promises how long this action will work, but right now it really helps your images stay lovely after uploading them.
The beautiful image I used in the ad above is from Royal Harrison Photography.
At this point in time all you have to do is resize your image to 851 pixels wide, sharpen a bit, and then save as a png (not a jpg). Or run my new action, Facebook Fix, and get perfectly sized and sharpen images for posting on Facebook!
