If you use Google Plus then you would have seen that you require a profile picture and a cover photo for your profile. But you always end up making the photos of sizes other than the required size. This leads to the cropping of your image in which you lose the information you wanted to show and also sometimes stretching of the images which results in a blur image. So in this article we tell you how to design your Google Plus Profile Picture and the Cover Photo.
Google Plus Profile Picture Size
On the left side you can see profile picture of our own brand page. The image is exactly 250 x 250 pixels in size (shrinked here), which is the size Google Plus shows on your profile. So to make a perfect profile picture you can design an image of exactly 250 pixels in length and width. Actually, you can make a square image of any size greater than 250 pixels, but Google will ask you to crop it or will automatically shrink it. So to have an image of exact is always advisable.
Google Plus Cover Photo Size
Above is an image of our Google plus brand page that has a cover image of size 940 x 180 pixels. Making an image of perfect size is always advisable for protecting the auto cropping and stretching of the image. Also as you can see the right side of the cover photo is covered by profile photo. So we recommend not to place any important information on the right side of the cover photo. Also leave some margin on the left side of the image because Google Plus shows it that way.
