    Hey guys,

    Been stuck with this issue for a few days now, tried almost everything but no luck.

    Trying to upload a picture to Facebook (tried different sizes, resolution, formats, etc) but each time it gets uploaded it just wont look the same. I understand FB compress photos a lot but in my case, they are getting compressed too much even if I upload a PNG that is under 100KB. I've seen other pages such as Subway/BurgerKing/restaurants that have some really nice looking pictures - and the quality is no way near mine.

    Any suggestions? Would pay if someone can assist me in fixing this issue. Skype is 'LeithSEO'.

    No need to pay. We're here to help each other.

    1. What happens if you upload a PNG in it's original size, i.e. 1mb, does it still look bad?

    2. Are the pictures you're uploading photos that you took? or just random pictures you downloaded?

    3. Did you add text to the pictures (i.e. used photoshop or other software to add text on the photo itself)?

    Thanks,

    1. Yes, still looks bad.

    2. A picture that a designer created for me.

    3. Yes, text was added in Photoshop.

    Tried all those.. still no luck. I've literally tried every method out there..

    I had the same problem. I used TinyPNG.com and then uploaded it with no problems.

    What is your image resolution in pixels?

    One thing I realised is that each time I do upload a PNG, Facebook converts it to a JPEG.

    Not sure if it would make any difference at all, but give it a go.

    Go to imgur.com and upload your photo. Get the direct link like that:

    [​IMG]

    Now go to FB and click on the Add Photos/Media button and paste the direct url in the "file name" field:

    [​IMG]

    That'd upload your image, might just make a difference, probably not but trying won't hurt.

    Try this-
    Resize your image to either 720px, 960px or 2048px. Facebook will not resize images using these resolutions.
    But they will still downgrade the quality of your image. To counter this, try compressing your image size to a minimum.
    Go to kraken.io and use lossless option to reduce size.
    Also, upload image in JPEG format, use sRGB color profile and check high quality option while uploading.
