    I think this is a much improved feature of G+, the massive image space was vastly under used and a bit of a waste, this is more concise and easier to see.

    Google’s suggested max size is now 1080 x 608. And btw, the full images doesn’t always show on small monitors or when the bio area contains several lines of information. In those cases the cover image is cropped on the sides. Anyone designing custom images needs to check how they look on multiple browsers and resolutions. It looks like Safari also zooms in on the image as well.

    2120 X 1992 is not the correct size …I uploaded a photo exactly that size and G+ made a severe cropping of it…going to try Hugh’s suggestion in his comment as 1080 X 608. OK! 480 X 270 worked with NO cropping …

    We actually thought the old and full size cover image worked quite well, and it was surprising to see this change at first. If you now compare a G+ page next to a Facebook page you can see just how close they are.

    It does look like Google are slowly settling on a winning design though – even it does mean umpteen re-workings of our cover image.

    Actually, it makes me mad that Google just can not leave it as is. I just spent several day’s creating and updating the cover photo’s from the last change. Now they have changed it again.

    I have a small problem with the change. My image on the left side now has a green blurred stripe through the middle of the image. It used to be, and is supposed to be, a solid grey background with my picture in the middle. But somehow it now pics up the green from the right side’s green text. Any ideas how to fix?
