How I create sharp images ready to be uploaded to Facebook.

In this video, I describe the process I take step by step! It’s important to create sharp quality images on social media as this is a showcase of our work as “content” creators! We want our work to look awesome. I hear a lot of folks saying that Facebook degrades the quality of their photos.

We’re going to export our image from Lightroom in its full resolution, then bring the image into Adobe Photoshop ready to be scaled to 2048px.

Pay attention to the resize options I select NB: Bicubic Sharper (Reduction) as this step determines the image sharpness and the amount of detail retained in the image. We then save the prepared image as a PNG.

The awesome thing about this step is that I can now drag that image off Facebook onto my phone and reupload it to Instagram and it looks awesome there too! You can also use Instagram image sharpen tool which will add more sharpness into the image before uploading it! Check out my IG: Shoot Create Captivate
