What dimensions are best for an image header on a space homepage?

looking to add an image header and need to know what dimensions it should be.

After a bit of trial and error, I've found that for our Confluence Cloud instance, a header image of 950 × 175 pixels fits perfectly on a Confluence Space homepage, when it is in the narrow option, not fullwidth.




I didnt use any code, but found out for a 1920*1080 resolution of monitor if we keep the width of image 1799px, and any height, the original size fits well in a single column section.

Hello there!

After some fiddling with an image header locally. What I found out is that we reach the maximum width of our header as soon as we reach a height of 250 pixels.

I took a screenshot of the maximum width that a header image can reach. For this screenshot, I used a width of 700 pixels. Here, take a look:



However, we can reach the same width by setting the height as 250 pixels. Here:



To finally answer your question, we can set the image width as 100% and the image height with a minimum of 250 pixels so you can reach the maximum width available for a header image.


Here is an example of what I used on my instance:

!|width="100%", height="210"!


Keep in mind that I tested this with three screens:

  • 27 inches 1080p
  • 23 inches 1080p
  • 14 inches 1080p


Results may vary aesthetically depending on screen resolution and size.

Let us hear from you, @Devin Parker ! Looking forward to your reply.

Could you please show the code used to create the image header with the height of 250 pixels?
