I am unable to upload a new channel artwork. He keeps saying he’s too small?
I tried to change my channel art, but every time I do it says “Your image is too small”. I resized my image to the recommended size and even larger than that and it still doesn’t work. I even tried using the default images you can use from the database they provide you with and it told me they were too small. Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue?

How to size for YouTube using PicMonkey’s Crop tool
When you crop an image, you remove part of it to achieve a desired size. Use Crop when you know you have room to spare; that is, your image is larger on at least one side and what you crop won’t negatively impact the image’s final look.
To use Crop:
Open your image in PicMonkey.
Click Crop Canvas in the Edits tab.
Click the caret (⌄) on the right side of the “Aspect ratio” drop-down menu and choose the size you want.
Move the crop box around to choose a different image placement, if desired.
Click Apply to save your changes.
How to size for YouTube using PicMonkey’s Resize tool
While crop will remove part of your image, resizing either stretches it or shrinks it in order to fit the new dimensions. This is a handy tool if you don’t want to lose any part of your design; however, be aware that making your image larger than its original size can jeopardize its quality.
To use Resize:
Open your image in PicMonkey.
Click Resize in the Edits tab.
Enter the dimensions you want in the width and height boxes.
Click Apply to save your changes.
Pro tip: When you enter your dimensions, you might notice that one box changes its size as you enter a value in the other box. This is because the image is trying to maintain its original proportions. You can manually stop this by clicking the chain link icon (keep proportions), but your final image will most likely be distorted. We don’t recommend this.
Sizing YouTube channel art correctly
Creating YouTube channel art is a precious operation. There’s the design itself, but also the question of sizing. YouTube recommends 2560 x 1440 pixels. This is considered best for computer desktops, but what about people visiting your channel from other devices? That’s why you need to account for smaller sizes and design within the “safe zone.” You can use one of our YouTube channel art templates or start with a blank canvas — both factor in this “safe zone” so that you never have to worry about your design looking funky on different devices. And if you ever like a design so much that you want to use it in multiple formats, well, then it’s time to meet one of the most magical tools around: Smart Resize.
How to size YouTube images with PicMonkey’s Smart Resize tool
We might be bias, but Smart Resize really is the pinnacle of amazingness. Available for PicMonkey Pro subscribers, Smart Resize lets you create multiple versions of a design in a matter of seconds. This is perfect if you want to see how a design looks in various formats and employ it across different platforms.
To use Smart Resize in PicMonkey:
With your design open, click Smart Resize in the top toolbar.
Select the sizes you want.
Click Resize to alter the original image to its new size, or Copy & resize to keep the OG image as-is.
Check Hub — all of your newly sized images will appear there!
