As the title implies, does anyone know what the max size of an Instructable's cover photo is?(in pixels). I'm trying to make an awesome cover photo but i need to know what the max size is, to do it right.

You can upload as big as you'd like. However the actual cover image (306x255) will be created when you publish your instructable.

Thanks! I know that when you upload it will crop it to fit, but i wanted to know so that it will fit perfectly and not crop it out. :)

Yeah that will be the exact ratio. So if you have an image that is 1920x1080 you can crop it to 1296x1080 and it will fit perfectly.

Why? It will be shown in a browser on a normal monitor. Most of them have 1920 pixel width, so anything more is just wasted anyway - and there are borders and margins. On my monitor (1920x1080), the first photo is shown about 780px wide. If the photo is wider, it will take longer to download and the browser will shrink it to 780px anyway!
