What is the maximum supported image/pixel dimensions size for a facebook page (without requiring resizing)?

Does this size change often or is there some other reason it would be unwise to utilise the full image size allocation?

Are you talking about the canvas or the profile picture ? – phwd Mar 4 '11 at 6:14
profile picture, thanks – JamesHenare Mar 4 '11 at 6:37

I believe it is 180 width x 540 height for profile pictures.

Though the documentation says otherwise

The URL to the largest-sized profile picture for the user being queried. The image can have a maximum width of 200px and a maximum height of 600px. This URL may be blank.

It could be this change is still being propagated.
