Ok, let’s take a look at 4 useful design considerations below when creating your Google+ header.


  • 1. Google+ Cover Photo Size In 2015
  • To make your Google+ cover great looking, you should first pay attention to its size. Although Google+ keeps changing its header size, it’s stable this year. The 2015 Google+ cover photo size is the same to 2014.

    Cover Photo:

    Recommended: 1080 x 608 pixels

    Maximum: 2120 x 1192 pixels

    Minimum: 480 x 270 pixels

    Displayed as: 920 x 518 pixels

    Note: In a word, the Google+ cover photo size you upload should be the ratio16:9 and at least 480 x 270 pixels, or else the Google+ will pop up a reminder as below.

  • Displayed as circle, the left of the cover photo with a blurred portion of your cover photo behind it, the Google+ profile photo is uploaded at least 250 x 250 pixels. The max size can be 1000 x 1000 pixels.

    Note: After selecting the proper profile photo to upload, you can crop the image by adjusting to best region. If your photo is too small, it will ask you to change a better one as below.

  • 3 Keep it Harmony
  • Choose a Google+ header photo best fit for your page's theme or your business skill.

    Too many people settle for plain and irrelevant Google+ cover photos to their business, which is unlikely to make people remember their page. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, just choosing a unique cover photo that will grab the reader’s attention is very important.

    Below is a simple Google+ cover photo template, this is what mine looks like, you can take it only for reference. (The blurred left side of the header is a repurposed copy of the header image you upload. You do not have to worry about the dimensions since you already have the header image at the correct size.)
