for some reason, the photos i convert to JPEG come out looking very crappy on facebook, meanwhile, I see other facebook users whos photos look clear as day.
btw, I convert my photos utilizing DPP. The photos are originally 3504MB and I convert to about 2336... is that STILL TOO BIG...???????

PLS HELP.. TX....:)

Try resizing your jpg and sharpening for web before uploading to facebook. I've noticed above a certain file size facebook compresses the crap out ofthe image.

with new fb photos upload option, i think you can choose the "high resolution" option. It should help improve with the quality

If I remember an Engadget post correctly its because they downsize images and might even compress them further.

But to be honest - if you use something like Facebook to actually present photographs...

And your MB values seem a bit off ;)

FB resizes to 720 pixels so anything bigger than that and they will resize it for you and compress the h*ll out of it.
Best thing is to resize yourself to at least be in control of that. They will still compress it though...

FB is not particualrly friendly to photographers.

Also, I would convert to TIFF and then convert to PNG on something else like Irfanview with a little bit of sharpening to 720pix. It's not flickr quality, but it's the best you can get out of facebook...

Yup, what others have said. Resize it yourself to 720p on the long edge.

For some folks, that is the best way to get family photos to friends and family. No need to knock him for it.

The best way would be a CD or DVD ;)
