Process Recipe to facebook

Hi Ive done quite a bit of research before asking here. I tried suggestions but nothing worked. Im using C1 12 and trying to process my watermarked images to facebook. Only recently did this start to happen. When I process my images and upload them to facebook they looked so small. Ive checked with facebook and made sure all my dimesions are correct but they are still appearing like a 4x6 and not taking up the whole screen when I click on the images. I only use my desktop to do so. I just dont know what is going on and want my images to look like they did a month ago.

My process is as follows and I havent changed this in years since I started with Capture One:


JPEG SRGB 1600px for web

Format JPEG
Quality 70%
ICC Profile: sRGBIEC
Resolution 800px
Scale: long Edge 2048px


If anyone sees something let me know, Im getting a little desperate lol

Believe it or not I haven't touch any of the settings that how it came preset from C1.

I am open to suggestions on what to do.

Hi,

Don't know what kind of images on Facebook you upload? Post, Header etc. but here is a guide to use for all social media with the sizes. You have to take in account that the sizes printed are all low resolution and don't take higher resolutions in account. So 1600px is nothing for iPad, mobile phones, high res monitors, iMac 4k and iMac 5k.

I first create the RAW images in Capture One, then I go to Affinity Photo/Photoshop and crop them to the proper pixel ratio in the highest width 5 X 800px = 4000px (for example)
You can set for higher resolutions in te Facebook preferences:

I think it's much easier in a dedicated photo editor then in Capture One!
Made all social media pixel ratio presets in Photoshop and Affinity Photo.

It doesn't seem to be possible to place a link in a post?

Regards,

David

Im mostly uploading post images.

Ive tried different exporting software but still coming up with a micro image. Ive even reset all my settings in facebook and in my exporting software. I just dont understand. I did find that all this started after I upgraded from C1 12 to C1 12.1.3.2. I dont know if that has anything to do with this.

My resolution is set to 300 px/in, scale fixed, 100% , but when using for the web it means nothing! Why is yours set to 800Px?

That apparently was a default from C1 I had never touched it. Ive tried processing an image at 300 but still the same result. No idea what to do :(

I process images for Facebook at 1600px width. The dpi should only make a difference if you are printing, though why 800 dpi would be a default, I wouldn't know.

They end up looking like this in a post. Image

My MacBook Pro screen is 2560x1600, but I am running it at a scaled resolution rather than at native resolution. But the size of the image compared with the screen is about what you might expect. If your monitor resolution is a lot larger than mine, I suppose the image would appear smaller. The physical size of the image in my screenshot is about 7 inch x 4.75 inch.

That is how my photos used to look a month ago before I updated C1.

For some reason now they are like this:

First of all it sounds too strange that default settings of a recipe called 1600px have a value of 2048px. In fact after resuming it my default values are:

Format JPEG
Quality 50%
ICC Profile: sRGBIEC
Resolution 300px/in
Scale: long Edge 1600px

Could you please provide a screenshot of your recipe to see if there's anything else strange in it?
Also, what's the resolution of your processed jpeg? Because if you've set 2048it should be 2048px wide, but actually that image (and others on the same FB page) is 800px.

As for the recipe you can try this: remove it and add it again. You will find it in the "Add recipe" list clicking on the three dots menu.

The 800px was the default I had been using for 2-3yrs. I didnt think much about it as everything was processing correctly. I didnt touch any of the settings in the recipe. A month ago facebook started to downsize my images even though I hadnt touch any setting in C1 or on Facebook. Since the photos downsized I started changing things around which is why you see different px values. I thought it was because of the C1 update.

I did do a reset of the recipe and got the same default values as you ClauS.

Ive stopped touching the recipe and have left it as such.

It looks like the Sept 23rd post is the last one to have the full screen photo. After that everything went small.
