FAQ

The most common Twitch banner dimension or size is 1920 x 480 px. Depending on the width of your browser window, though, your banner size may change a bit, so you’ll want to make sure your images are large enough and concentrated on the left-hand side of your banner to minimize stretching.

A good Twitch banner has consistent color palettes, fonts, and graphics; uses white space and the rule of thirds; stands out with a unique logo or mascot; and avoids clutter. It reflects your personality and brand, and lets visitors know what to expect from your channel.

File formats that support Twitch banners include JPEG, PNG, and GIF. Use the first two for banners with static images and GIFs for banners with animation. Files must be no more than 10MB in size. Remember that viewers will mostly be seeing your Twitch banner on a mobile device.
