Facebook ups photo resolution by a factor of four

Facebook on Thursday announced it has enhanced the photo experience on the social network by adding high-resolution photo support and full screen viewing. When a user clicks on a photo, it will be displayed in the highest possible resolution, which can be four times bigger than previously. The full screen view is available in the latest version of Firefox or Chrome browsers through an arrow button in the top right corner of the photo.

The new maximum resolution size is 2048x2048 pixels, and users who wish to upload photos at this higher resolution need to click on the High Res box when creating an album. At the same time, the sRGB color profile of photos has been improved in order to improve colors while not affecting load speeds in a negative way.

The rollout is scheduled to start on Thursday.
