The recommended size for the header image is 1500x500 pixels.

Huh?

I opened the example up full screen (1920x1080) and the image space filled the top HALF of my screen!

OH YEAH! Just what people want to look at!

Think about how that profile will look when looking at list of new contacts. I just tested a new image to see how it looked. I'm not sure I've got it correct, just yet.

So why is it that Twitter thinks we need another Facebook layout? *scratches head

I must have missed the memo

Kartic, welcome to WebmasterWorld

If you don't have an image just yet, and the brand image is important (surely, it is to everyone), make it a blank or generic image to avoid low image quality, etc.

Not sure I like this change. It made older profile photos and header photos look like crap. I had to get higher res photos for everything.

There used to be great Photoshop templates out there that outlined how to design background images, et. al. All that work is now gone. :(

And I was just debating whether or not to split off my Twitter Photoshop template pages from my main ringtone site.

I periodically experiment with Twitter, but as far as I can see it still has the lowest signal to noise ratio of any major platform on the web. What Twitter really needs, from my perspective, is a decent learning algo that filters out all the crap I don't care about (i.e. if I follow someone I don't know personally because that person is an expert on widgets, I really only want her widget posts and maybe topics one step away from widgets, but it's likely that person makes 10 posts about where she is and what she's eating for every post on widgets).

profiles aren't that important anyway. no one goes to profile. it's all about tag search and personal feed

@dethfire not quite true. Every time you get a new follower, or you see a new recommendation, the profile is the first thing they see. I don't know about you, but, i'm careful about who I follow, and looking at their profile is one of the things that indicated to me whether I should follow them or not.
It's very important to get a good profile for those reasons alone, imho.

Yeah, I always look at the profile of people I'm thinking of following, and of the people who follow me.

I did set up the new header photo using the recommended 1,500x500 size. The interaction between that photo and the profile photo is interesting. The profile photo moves sideways a bit depending on the window size.

And then there's the different behavior when viewing on a mobile device, tablet in my case.

IMO new profile layout is much better than the old one.
