Google Plus Cover Photo
Since the release of the new Google Plus cover photo the image you use no longer needs to be massively huge. With the new cover photo being so much smaller than the previous version that took up most of the screen and would stretch in size to fit a 21” monitor, it has become easier to create a beautiful graphic for your Google Plus Cover photo. Right now the recommended size for your Google Plus cover photo is 1080 x 608, with a minimum size of 480 x 270, and a maximum size of 2120 x 1192. When designing your Google+ cover photo, try not to stuff it with too much information or it may come out looking jumbled and may not have the effect you desired while creating it. You should also keep your profile image in mind– you don’t want to design anything that is going to be overlapped or otherwise impeded by your profile photo when being displayed on mobile devices since the layout will change. Speaking of your profile photo, the recommended size is 250 x 250. The profile photo holds a circular shape and will cut off any edges of your image if it is too large. If you are having this problem, simply scale your image down a little bit. You can also get rid of the circle around your profile photo by making your image a .png file with transparency. This will make your Google Plus profile photo look as if it is part of the cover photo, and you can incorporate this into your cover photo design if you would like. The new Google Plus Cover photo now has space for your name, bio snippet and general info, and no longer covers the image. This information does not have to be factored into your design at this time.
