Publitio Image and Video URL Transformations
In standard way you would use Photoshop or some Image tool to make this image or similar one, but Publitio removes need for additional software and provides direct access for some of main image Transformations.
Image above is Transformation 1920x1080 of Original image generated from 5983x3853px
Now in order to get that facebook cover or size that we are looking for maybe thumbnail for website we are going to check our options.
First let's just try to simple resize image to width and height of 820x360px, we are going to change url parameters to w_820 (for width) and h_360 (for height)
As you can see image is resized but it kinda feels OFF.. it was not converted in a way we would publish it, to fix this we can try few options that Publitio offers like , crop, fill and fit.
In order to crop image we need to apply c_crop tag after desired image resolution and final link will be
But as we see this is still little bit of it did not generate desired result, lets try next option Image Fitting
Image Fit (Fitting)
In order to crop image with fit settings we need to apply c_fit tag after desired image resolution and final link will be
And as you can see since you said that rule is to fit image it had to make compromise and image generated used rule of 360 height and fitted it to best possible resolution which is 559x360 so make sure you know with a resolutions since this is not standard image ratio.
Image Fill (fill space by zooming)
In order to make original image fill specific resolution we need to apply c_fill tag after desired image resolution and final link will be https://media.publit.io/file/w_820,h_360,c_fill/rawpixel-550994-unsplash.jpg
Now this image looks like something we could use and would use in order to save it and Upload it to Facebook Cover Image.
Since Facebook cover is not standard dimension and if you want to make sure you get most out of the image you might decide that you would allow minor changes in height and focus to make sure you have width done right you could do following
