We are going to face same challenges in designing YouTube Channel Art as we did in twitter cover photo, as YouTube Channel art is responsive, so our images will appear different on different device, so we need to be creative in order to look Good on each and every device.
So first lets start with Dimensions
YouTube Channel Art Size :
- Dimensions : Recommended YouTube Channel Art Size is 2560 Pixels by 1440 Pixels, which means that channel art must have width of 2560 pixels and height of 1440 pixels.
- Maximum file size allowed is 4 MB.
- Most of the height in channel art, is cropped on devices like PC and Mobile phones, so try to add text or logo’s in the middle.
