Option for higher quality or original size/quality photos to "HootSuite Photos" Facebook album
Add an Option for higher quality or original size/quality photos to "HootSuite Photos" Facebook album. Current resizing and compression yield unacceptably low quality images uploaded to the FB album.
The new Timeline layout supports larger photo formats and other services like Buffer already allow full res uploads. HootSuite should be supporting these new features better.
We’re happy to let you know that development pushed an update last night that greatly improved image resolution to Facebook. You should no longer see a decline in size and resolution when posting through HootSuite.
Please take some time at your earliest convenience to try this out! If you have any further questions, please let us know! We’ll be available in the forum to respond to any questions here: https://forum.hootsuite.com/hootsuite/topics/image_quality_deteriorates_on_facebook_when_posted_via_hootsuite

What about Google+, images posted to Google+ still look really bad.
Yes. I confirmed that the image size and quality is still decrease :(

I'm still seeing a decrease in image resolution when I post images to Facebook. Any reason why this might be? Going to have to stop using it for this soon as it's important that images are uploaded to my brand's FB page in full resolution.

Between this and bulk schedule deletion, Hootsuite is paling compared to the competitors.
Reinvesting in R&D is the way forward in tech--or else all the marketing in the world won't help. Look at Google.

ANY News? If it isn't fixed very soon, i have to change to Sprout Social.
Picture-Quality is the most important thing on facebook.
Is there a fix for this yet? I also have the same issues with low res images posting to Google Plus. I am a new customer and the fact that HootSuite posts to Google Plus is the main reason I went with your service instead of Sprout Social. if this isn't fixed soon I won't be able to justify paying for your services.

If this issue doesn't get solved we'll have to start looking at other tools like sprout social. Low Res image is really 1999...
This is crucial to be solved, I'll try to find an alternative tool.
When do you think this will be done?
Thanks for working on this, it's almost unusable with Facebook posts with smaller text.

We are leaving Hootsuite in 2013 and moving to Sprout Social because of this.

This option has been voted on since this time last year, are any closer to a resolution?
Keith McCord commented
Yes! We definitely need the images that we upload through Hootesuite to adhere to the maximum image sizes that Facebook allows! The smaller size is horrible!
yes, current quality really isn't good enough!
Tony Tug commented
Tried out Hootsuite scheduling of a picture post and was dissappointed to see a low-res image uploaded to Facebook. Will not use Hootsuite again until resolved. Can't you guys use http://imgur.com/ instead of ow.ly?

We need better picture quality please! This is really important/
Brody McKee commented
This is insane, we need this fixed now! Can someone please get back to us on this?
