You should be able to use any aspect ratio of 1.2 x 1 and it should fit perfectly.

I think any square image is perfect.

Downunder is correct "almost square"..

Adding a white border usually helps an image..

Try several versions, delete what does not look..

What do you mean by "chopped"?
The only restraints I am aware of is that the image should be almost square.
But you can change the position of the"cut-out" if the imge you use is of a different aspect ratio.
I found it quite useful to restrict the image size o something below the HD range.
After all many people don't have 4K devices and an ime bigger than 800x600 might be overkill.
