The size of the New Google Plus Cover is 1534 x 860 pixels. The height can be used of a lower size, possibly up to 164 pixels (I have forgotten the exact digits). I am using a MacBook Pro 15″. I have not checked on my bigger resolution screens and / or MBP 15″ Retina. 1534 pixels is so big, that basically its hard to do a sober design for personal profile, as for Twitter Cover, the same thing goes – it is better to use a image design like my Twitter profile’s one with darker gradient.
