Blog Post Banner Size Tests

Version 6
Visibility: Open to anyone

    Some tests I did on blog post banner sizes as discussed on 2016.1 Deep Dive: Content


    [Please ignore all the apostrophes - I'm mortified ]


    All blog posts look like this one - the banner was selected to be vertically central (Centered). The title of the blog post shows the size of the banner used in pixels. [Other girl bands are available at your record store and online.] Edit: or as I learnt today!  YMMV.

    Then I looked at how the blog posts appear in the activity stream. Where there is colored padding there is a thin black border on the padding so that you can see that there is no clipping going on:

    As you can see, 'so far' there is no clipping, so you can use an aspect ratio which is heading towards portrait as long as the 'important bit' of the banner is appropriately positioned based on how you align the image on the blog posts (Top Center, Centered, Bottom Centered).
