This means that you have to do everything you can to make your collection stand out and catch the eyes of potential buyers at first sight. And the collection banner and profile banner are the first things a buyer sees when browsing through the site or landing on your profile.
In this article, you will find the exact perfect dimensions of your OpenSea banner with a downloadable template. And how to enhance your existing collection or profile banner.
The perfect OpenSea Banner Size
You can find many different size recommendations for the OpenSea banner online. But what is the right OpenSea banner size?
Although OpenSea officially recommends a banner size image of 1400×400 pixels, it can make your banner image blurry. This is because this size is not optimized for different devices.
Different Devices = Different Appearance
Over time, with the development of mobile technology, the computer is no longer the only device to surf the web.
But nowadays there are a variety of smartphones with different screen sizes and resolutions. And that’s why it has become common to create so-called “responsive” websites. Which are able to adapt for use on different devices.
Consequently, it can easily happen that someone will use such a device on which your Opensea banner will be stretched and blurred.
Or it will get smaller and the important part will remain hidden or unreadable.
Therefore, a far better, or rather the best OpenSea banner size from our testing seems to be 2800×1000 pixels. With all the important information kept towards the center of your banner.
Now let’s take a look at how to make the perfect banner.
How to style your OpenSea Banner
As stated above the ideal banner dimensions are 2800×1000 pixels. These dimensions don’t mean that your banner will look perfect on all devices. But it is the best one that will fit all devices.
Your banner won’t be heavily scratched on TVs and large computer screens or on the contrary, won’t be unreadable on small screens.
But how to style your banner so all important information stays readable?
The best practice is to place the most important information – such as important visuals, collection headlines, or descriptions – in the middle of the banner. So everyone across all screen sizes and resolutions can see that.
Most OpenSea users are looking to buy NFTs from their computers. Only a small fraction use OpenSea on their mobile devices. And there is a simple explanation for that. Connecting your MetaMask Extension or any other wallet and processing your payment is a lot easier on a computer than on a small mobile screen. And a lot safer too.
So don’t be afraid to also include information in the “Desktop” area of the Banner Template. But try to keep the important stuff in the middle area.
The upper part should also not be left completely empty. We recommend putting some less important visual elements in it.

How to fix Blurry Banner Images on OpenSea
If your banner looks blurry it is likely that you have uploaded an image that was too small. Even smaller than the official recommended size.
When you upload small images it has to get heavily upscaled to meet the minimum size requirements. Which can cause blurriness.
Another reason why your banner may look blurry is because of the compression that every image uploaded to OpenSea goes through. If your image was not initially of very high quality the compression may have caused the loss of sharpness.
To avoid the blurriness of your banner, always use high-quality images that are ideally in the resolution we have mentioned. A bigger picture doesn’t hurt either, but OpenSea can still mess things up. But this can be avoided by following the next step.
How to fix your OpenSea Banner Size for free
This step is recommended if your banner size is bigger than the suggested 2800×1000 pixels. If your banner is smaller than that it’s better to create a brand new one, that meets these requirements.
You can use different free online tools to resize your banner. I especially like the Simple Image Resizer.
As the name indicates it is really simple to use and gets the job done.
How to Resize your Banner online
First thing first head to the Simple Image Resizer and change the resizing mode from “Percentage” to “Dimensions”.
Now tap “Select Image” and find your banner that needs to be resized.
The last thing left to do is to enter the needed dimensions of 2800 Width X 1000 Height and tap Resize. Then download your resized image.
Now you can head back to OpenSea and upload your perfectly sized banner.
Even with these dimensions, your banner might not look perfect on certain devices. This sizing may not be suitable for your specific OpenSea banner. If this is the case play around with the size a bit, but always stay between 1400×400 pixels and 2800×1000 pixels.
