FABULOUS guide to get your new twitter header to fit JUST RIGHT. Thanks +Pauline Cabrera 
 
New Twitter Header Size + Template (updated)

Twitter's recommended dimensions for header photo is 1500px in width X 500px in height. But the size I am currently using, which works well for me, is 1500px (width) X 421px (height).

IMPORTANT: You need to use the template provided in my blog post to make this work for you. The whole content of your image won't fit in the header since Twitter automatically crops your image.

When you download the template:
- Do NOT add anything in the invisible areas (the black colored ones) or they will not show up on your header.
- You may still use the "invisible on iPhone app" parts but I suggest not to put anything important in those areas. 

The template has been tested in different screen resolutions and in Twitter app using iPhone (5).

For examples + live examples + free downloadable templates. Go to:
http://www.twelveskip.com/tutorials/twitter/1267/twitter-header-size-dimension-2014 

PS: No matter what you do, you will lose the original quality of your image. Twitter needs to fix this. The best thing you can do is SAVE your image in its highest quality - preferably in PNG format.

Hope this helps!

If you try this template, please let me know how it turns out for you. Also any other tips you might have, please share in the comments below.

I truly LOVE this picture. Totally captures a child's rainy day mood.

What a beautifully shot picture. I also like the mood and how you captured the child's expression so well.

You'll love it +Laura Bashar - my friend Julie is a GENIUS when it comes to cocktails. :)  I might float a few actual blueberries in it, too. Or maybe muddle them WITH the Not Ketchup.

What a great roundup by +Abby Bird recommending the best meals to freeze before your baby arrives. Yum!
Based on my experiences and asking the best food bloggers/recipe developers, I created a list (or round up) of the best meals to freeze before baby arrives.
