Twitter Cover Photo Size in 2022

If you’ve ever struggled with Twitter header dimensions you’re not alone.

When creating a Twitter account for your brand, it’s important to create branded profile pictures and banners in order to make your profile as recognizable as possible. If you create Twitter assets that are the wrong ratios, you will look unprofessional. Having a Twitter header sized correctly can be a great marketing tool. At a first glance of your profile, viewers can be informed of promotions or upcoming/current campaigns and events.

Importance of Cover Ratio!

Having the right Twitter cover and banner size is important to building your brand’s presence on the platform. Keep your Twitter banner sized at 1500 x 500 pixels, keeping design elements towards the center of the image, and ensuring that nothing gets lost through cropping or hidden under your profile image.

Twitter’s guidelines for header photos

Before we dive into some optimization tactics, let’s go over Twitter’s recommended guidelines for header images.

  1. Header photo recommended dimensions are 1500px by 500px, which has an aspect ratio of 3:1
  2. Photos can be in any of the following formats: JPG, GIF, or PNG. (This does not support animated GIFs for profile or header images.)

What is image Aspect Ratio?

An aspect ratio is a proportional relationship between an image’s width and height. Essentially, it describes an image’s shape. Aspect ratios are written as a formula of width to height, like this: 3:2. For example, a square image has an aspect ratio of 1:1, since the height and width are the same.

How to resize your Twitter header photo

Click “Custom Size” from the toolbar on the right side of the Studio. In the Custom Resizer window, enter 1500 in the first field and 500 in the second. Just click “Done” and your Twitter header will be resized perfectly.
