Make Google+ Profile Banners With Gplusbanner

Looking for a simple, stable and significant VPS as your web hosting? Check out DigitalOcean, only $5 per month, and you can get $10 in credit just for signing up now.

Like Facebook, the Google+ profile page is also available for you to show one profile picture in the left, and 5 banner pictures in the right.

This post will show you how to cut one image into 5 pieces with the Gplusbanner website and make them as your Google+ profile’s banner pictures.


You can upload a JPG, GIF or PNG image (less than 10 MB), crop it, choose whether to keep your results on the website or to delete them after saving. If you choose to keep them, you can also add category, tags, title and some other information. After that, click the "Render Images" button in the right, then you can download the pictures for your Google+ profile.

There is a total of 5 pictures, you can right-click and save them to your computer one by one, then go to your profile page (such as this) on Google+, click the "Edit Profile" button, and add the 5 pictures one by one in order, then your Google+ profile banner will be ready, such as the following:

Although Gplusbanner is cool for you to create a funny picture banner for your Google+ profile, it has some obvious shortcomings comparing to the these Facebook profile banner makers:

1. You can’t zoom images

When cropping the uploaded image, you can’t zoom it out or in, so you’d better upload an image with 685 px width and 125 px height.

2. You can’t upload PNG files

Like Gpluspic, I failed to upload any PNG image into Gplusbanner.

3. You have to download and upload pictures one by one

After rendering your pictures, you have to download them to your computer and then upload them to your Google+, one by one, not in one click.

4. You can’t make the profile pictures

While these websites are available for you to cut one image for both Facebook profile picture and banner, Gplusbanner is only available for the banner.

So Gplusbanner is far from perfect and if you have any other better websites to make Google+ profile banners, welcome to share them with us by leaving a comment.
