Best Facebook Photo Tools

Updated on February 13, 2015

Facebook Photo Applications

Facebook allows for third parties to write applications that will work on Facebook. Many of the best applications are related to photo management and editing - creating timelines; uploading and downloading images, editing photos. There are many applications in Facebook that lets you enhance, add effects, edit and possibly do anything with your photos. These apps gives your otherwise boring Facebook photos the boost they need to make them exciting and enticing for your friends to look at. Some of the best applications are listed on this site.

Facebook Photo Size Tips

Cover Photo (851 x 315) The best size for this item. Take a bigger and heavier image and Facebook will turn all your ideas upside down. The smallest possible size is 720 pixels wide. But the image quality will be not the best one. To fix the problem, you can try to resize the pic. Sure, you donât want to boast a blurry picture on your page! And if you select a larger photo, youâll be able to move and crop it.

Timeline Photos (403 x 403) Itâs ok if you choose a bigger photo, but Facebook will automatically center the picture. So, if the objects in the image are not centered, they wonât be in focus and the whole impression will be spoiled. To solve the problem, click on the Pencil icon after you publish your picture, select the Reposition Photo and amend the positioning.

Profile Picture (180 x 180) â The official dimensions of your profile picture are 160 x 160 pixels. But remember that Facebook adds a thin white frame that cannot be removed. So, itâs better to take a slightly bigger pic to get a much better result. Facebook Photo Editor - Over 3.8 million users


It's the free, all-in-one way to make collages, photos, and more. Instantly share to Facebook or just save it for later.

Photomania - 250+ Photo Effects on Facebook


PhotoMania offers several groups of photo effects: sketches, paintings, cartoons, fun, modifications and a few more. Each group contains dozens of effects - over 250 effects in all! You can use your own Facebook photos, upload images from your computer or add effects to copies of your friends' photos and the photos tagged with your name.

While I like Photomania, there are two issues to watch out for. The app page is full of ads and unless you use an ad-blocker you may find yourself clicking on an ad instead of a photo-effect option. Also, when you install the application into Facebook, the photo editor asks for permission to post on your behalf on Facebook, though you can quickly reject that option and still use PhotoMania. (In fairness, I am seeing more and more Facebook photo editors do this so this is more a comment across the board - than specific to Photomania!)

Photo Books, Calendars and Mosaics

With hundreds of millions of photos and videos being shared every day it's easy to miss out on the ones that actually matter to you. Pixable finds the best photos and videos shared on Facebook and Twitter so you never miss an important moment. Pixable has its roots in Facebook and the integration is much deeper there, Twitter integration started only in August 2011.

While Pixable started off with applications about printing Facebook photos it has now evolved into creating a personalized browsing experience by aggregating photos from different social networks and then sorting them into feeds like "Best Photos of the Day" in order of their relevance to you, Pixable also provides a notification service allowing you to follow friends' photo activity and be notified of newly tagged or uploaded photos.

Pixable has applications for the Web, for the iPhone and for the iPad - check out the one on your platform of choice to see ways to enjoy and manage all the photos thrown your way via social media.

I love their description, "Think of us as your personal photo and video concierge"which is exactly how I use Pixable.




Download Entire Facebook Photo Albums

One of the best features of Facebook are the photos albums, which allows you and all of your friends to upload an unlimited number of pictures to share with your personal networks. While it's great having all of these pictures online, you aren't guaranteed that they will always be available. With a great application called PhotoGrabber you can download all of the Facebook tagged photo albums that you have access to. Using the PhotoGrabber application for Facebook is great for keeping a personal copy of photos from Facebook and is an excellent way to protect them for the future.
