Blurry Cover Photo

Hello, How Can I get my Google Cover Photo so it doesn't show up blurry?  I've tried all of these sizes,

480x270

1080x608

2120x1192

1600x900 

I've made a banner out of all of these sizes and saved each one as a jpg file, and a png just to see if that changed anything and it doesn't. 

I'm using Adobe Photoshop Elements 10. I've also tried all of these with Pixlr Editor. Neither seem to make a difference.

Here's what my banner on Google looks like.

Hello, @Jody S!

 

That's great you have looked up the necessary size. 1080x608 is the best choice in size, though you can go as large as 2120x1192. 

As for why it is blurry, please ensure that the ppi (pixels per square inch) you are using is not lower than 72 ppi. You could go as high as 300 ppi if you wish, though that is best used for items you plan to print.

 

Also, looking at the image you have on your page, it looks over-pixelated rather than blurry. So perhaps changing the ppi will resolve the error.
