You may have noticed that Google+ has just updated their maximum cover photo size - or maybe you didn't? Anyway, profiles will now feature a 2120px X 1192px cover photo across the top of the page. These dimensions are the maximum image size permitted and we recommend that you use the full size so that the image looks crisp for users with big monitors. Not surprisingly, this is a 16:9 aspect ratio which is now common for most TVs, tablets, smart phones and computer monitors. Check out what Google did with their page.
The profile image is now contained in a circle which displays at 160px X 160px, but you can upload a 250px X 250px image and crop as needed.
Since we went through all the trouble to create a Photoshop template for this new size, we thought we'd share the love and save everybody a little time. Feel free to download our Photoshop CS6 template and distribute it to your friends.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer support on using the template, but pay attention to the layer names. The only layer you need to save is named "USE THIS - your cover image - max - 2120x1192", and it already has a slice named "my-cover-image".
