Notion Cover Image Size & Header Dimensions

The best Notion cover image dimensions to use are 1500px by 600px. If you’re looking to custom design your own cover photos, Notion’s covers are dynamic and are at the mercy of device and screen size – so because of this, there’s no true safe zone that’s completely free from cropping at all sizes. However, the these guides and safe areas below will help you stay as far away from the crop zones as possible!

Here’s how the cropping works:

On mobile, Notion cover photos are cropped on the left and right of the image.

On iPad, desktop, and mobile’s landscape view – cover photos are cropped on the top and bottom, and cropped slightly more depending on whether or not your sidebar is enabled.

Here’s what’s visible on different devices!

  • Mobile: Blue + Purple + Green 🔵🟣🟢 (if you have a larger phone, you might see hints of orange, black and yellow!)
  • Desktop (with sidebar): Blue + Purple + Yellow + Black 🔵🟣🟡⚫️
  • Desktop & iPad Landscape (both without sidebar): Blue + Yellow 🔵🟡
  • iPad Landscape (with sidebar) & iPad Portrait: Blue + Purple + Yellow 🔵🟣🟡 (with hints of green and orange depending on your screen size)

TLDR: Blue is seen in all viewports, orange is rarely seen.
