Have you tried Facebook’s high-resolution picture option? At the end of last month Facebook announced the option to upload and download high-resolution photos on individual and personal facebook photo pages. From their blog page:
“we will be rolling out support for print-quality, high-resolution photos. And unlike on many other online services, you don’t need any kind of premium or paid account.”
I tried it recently and was pleasantly surprised. Facebook increased the size of the photos stored from 720 pixels to 2048 pixels on the largest edge, for an 8 times increase. Not bad since the amount of photos you can upload is unlimited and free to do so.
In order to view a photo in high-resolution, the original picture must be uploaded in high-resolution too. This is done at the initial moment you upload an image, see picture. Once the photo is up you can view it in its normal facebook mode size or choose to download the high resolution version.
