Layout all of your cover pictures (Whether it's for your organisation web page, your individual account, or a team) to ensure that it's size: height ratio is 16:9. 1920 pixels by 1080 pixels is a great dimension.

Keep crucial information (faces, text, etc) towards the middle of the photo. Know that when individuals check out your image on desktop computer, the top and also base will certainly be cut off, so maintain that important stuff in the center as well as you'll be golden!
