How do i stop facebook cropping the images i upload.

Every image i upload gets a thumbnail generated that only seems to cover about 40% of the image.

How do i fix this?

Its making my portfolio look retarded like i have no idea how to frame a photo lol.

Thumbnails are previews, and that's just how they do it. If you want your portfolio to look good, don't use facebook for that purpose.

First idea that springs to mind is to stop using FaceBook as a portfolio. Because it's not... big_smile

Or you could frame your pictures so that facebook's croppings dont matter.

Yeah that's just the way thumbnails work on there. And those people might upload smaller versions of their photo so it fits into the thumbnail dimensions.

Go to the picture and click edit. Then choose reposition photo. That determines how the thumbnail looks

Here is the link that may help you:

It provides the actual pixel dimensions for FB thumbnails and other images on most social media sites.
