With a Twitch channel, you’re no longer alone when you’re gaming—whether you’re leading a raid or battling evil forces, you’ve got a whole audience behind you cheering you on. Connect with your audience and gain more followers by adding images that’ll give a unique personality to your Twitch channel.
Your avatar is a prominent image for Twitch, it’s how followers and would-be followers would get to recognize you. The avatar is a square image with a minimum required size of 200 x 200 pixels to ensure quality. You can edit your Twitch avatar by going to the settings page.
Your Twitch banner acts as a cover image or header over your channel or page. By uploading an interesting and unique image art, you can use it for advertising or to simply attract more users to your Twitch channel. The recommended size for your Twitch banner is 1920 x 480 pixels. However, bear in mind that Twitch pages and your cover image will be scaled based on the width of each user’s browser window. Images might stretch depending on how a user’s browser looks, so to ensure that your Twitch banner looks consistently good, make your image as wide as possible and concentrate your graphics or design elements to the left.
