Hi :)

I want to upload two games in a few days and create a site on itch.io for them. Problem is: what size do I need for the banner and the background?

Thanks for your help xx

The default width of the center column is 960px, but it can change on phones/tablets, or if you're using a really wide game embed.

I think project pages and creator profiles are 960px wide. Height is up to you; might want to try and see what works best for your needs.

Thank you! <3

Hi! I just noticed that having 960px wide won't actually cover the whole width of the page with my image: is there a height limit that maybe is changing all my proportions?Thanks a lot!

Also, don't forget to make a 315x250 (or 630x500) thumbnail! The thumbnail is seen by a lot more people than the banners.

I actually have the same problem again.. does anyone know the exact pixel measurements that I need for the background and the banner so that it doesn't look weird or waaay to small or distorted?

backround 1520x960 px or something like that.

This matter remains without confirmation.

I also need to know, I'm testing sizes and I don't get the right one.

This would be really helpful to know. Anyone got an idea?

Which image do you need a size for? We have a guide here for designing a page: https://itch.io/docs/creators/design

If there are numbers missing from that for a specific thing then I can add them. Generally though, the theme editor is pretty flexible. Try uploading something and use the tools to position it to your liking.

Hi, I would like to know what size I should use to create two columns that fit perfectly like the XYDONIA game.
This game has placed two tiles on the sides that fit perfectly in the horizontal repetition, if I try to do the same, I cannot achieve it because the repetition is not exact and parts of the column that should not be seen are visualized.

So what horizontal size do I need to correctly visualize two columns?

The default max width is 960px but it can change depending on responsive layout and if you've configured a HTML5 game.

Ok, I understand, I will do some tests as soon as I can.

Thanks
