Streaming your game on Twitch can be a fun way to share your gaming experiences with your friends and other players. Some gamers are fortunate that their broadcast becomes popular enough that they can live off the ad revenue and become full-time streamers. If you are trying to gain recognition and popularity, one of the steps to consider is branding. Your profile and banner images are part of your brand on Twitch.
To configure your profile and banner images, you must go to your account settings. Click on your profile picture in the upper right corner, then click on “Settings”

Once in the default ‘Profile’ tab of your Twitch account settings, the first two options are your profile picture and the profile banner. To upload profile pictures and banner, click “Add Profile Picture” and “Update” respectively. Each image can be in JPG, PNG or GIF format and must not exceed 10 MB in file size.
Tip: If you find that the image you want to use is larger than 10MB, try converting it to JPG as it has the best compression level. If your image is already a JPG, try shrinking the image until the file drops below 10MB.
Profile photos are always displayed in a circle, so all the fine details in the corners of your profile photo will not be visible. Twitch recommends that your profile banner be 1200×480 pixels, you can upload larger images if you can stay under the 10MB limit, but stick to the recommended aspect ratio is recommended.
Note: when choosing the images you want to use, you must be aware of the copyright rules. Don’t take other people’s artwork and use it on your channel. If you want to use someone else’s work, ask first and wait for permission to be granted.
