Taking a selfie and posting it on Instagram and Facebook like social media platforms is common these days. Millions of images are daily uploaded to the social media. It’s kind of fun and sharing moments with friends and family members. But, sometimes on social media platform, let’s say Facebook when we try to add a cover photo, it gives us Image pixel warning. It’s because there’s image resolution justified for cover pics and a user can’t upload a picture lower than that resolution. Same for YouTube channel art and many other websites.
In such scenario, we need to increase the image resolution. Maybe the pic you’re trying to upload is only a few pixels shorter than they wanted. So, instead of capturing the picture again, it’s better to increase its resolution. There are many ways to do this but if you own an Android device, you can do this on your own using your smartphone only. No need to switch to some online tools or PC software, just your Android smartphone device.
