Recently, Google Plus has launched a new profile format which features a prominent (let me call it massive!) cover image in addition to the regular profile image. Now everybody is looking for the exact Google Plus photo size! Google+ now shows a circular profile picture. Facebook was the first to introduce the concept of cover image in its Timeline format of profiles and pages.

When Google Plus users want to update their profile picture or cover photo, they often hit the question, “What is the size of Google+ profile and cover image?”

This question strikes mainly because Google often rejects images that are not of appropriate size. If you upload a profile picture too small for Google Plus guidelines, you’ll be disappointed as Google will ask you to upload a bigger photo. Therefore, it is better to know the correct size of Google Plus profile and cover images. And here is the answer for you in the form of an infographic!

So, the Google+ cover photo size is 2120 x 1192 pixels. Size of the profile picture is 250 x 250 pixels. As you may have noticed, cover photo gets automatically resized when it is viewed on devices with smaller and bigger screens as well as different resolutions. Now you can upload these images in correct sizes and make your Google Plus profile look ever more beautiful!
