Strava club photo size

Has anyone decyphered creating images that work for clubs? I have a banner logo and smaller
Image logo and both are no dice. Resized to recommended dimensions, strava scales it. Went as far as 780x300 and strava scales it up and it’s blurry. 2048 was too big, and 1253 wasn’t small
Enough to fit into to the automated cropping tool. Help

  • A big 'me too' here.

    Hopefully a paying customer will get a response.

  • The Profile Pic appears to be 247x247 but i cannot find anything for the Cover Photo that it doesnt stretch or cut off. And now i am stuck with a partial Cover Photo that i cannot get rid of. Thats the very definition of poor Web Dev Strava developers!

  • Here is the response I got...

    "Hello,

    Thanks for writing in. All Club cover photos displayed on the web will be cropped to some extent. This is because we cut the image at a mobile-friendly ratio which results in the web image having part of top and bottom hidden. On mobile, the displayed dimension is 1185x580px and on the web it is 1185x393px.

    I hope this helps!"

     

    This means that any picture that is used will not show up the same on both.

  • Thanks Kenny, but I still cannot get it to work no matter how small I make the pic or which device I look at it on.  Same cropping.  

    Would love to see specific directions and example of editing tool to create proper dimensions/sizing, etc...

  • Same issues here. It's pretty mind-numbing. I am the owner of a company club with 520+ global members and we are unable to brand the club properly for our employees. It's pretty frustrating.

    A potential solution: Allow uploads of the 1185x393 web banner, and then have admins crop themselves to an 1185x580 for mobile. Or allow us to upload two separate versions (one optimized for mobile and the other web). Where users don't upload both, have them default to the frustrating experience.

  • This is ridiculous that Strava can't get the header image sizing correct.

  • I agree with all the above complaints re: club photo cropping. I had a "go" at another club for not getting a decent picture up to promote the club. I'm now copping the same flack from members of the club I set up. Why can't Strava get it right? Ridiculous.

  • In chrome, the maximization of the browser also affects the image (ridiculous). So when I shrink or scale the browser larger and smaller, I can see the float for the test area raise and lower. I am a paying Strava customer, same as many here, and I would love to get some feedback from Strava Dev and understand why this is such a hard problem to solve. Also, as I have seen in other posts, there is always some reference to "mobile optimization" and I will tell you...that is laughable. This is just sub-par web development, and should be something you could get put into an upcoming sprint for resolution rapidly. Feedback appreciated.

  • Is there any further clarity on this - nothing I am trying seems to work - 1185x580 or 1185x393 or 1185x547 etc... hopeless!

  • I believe I figured this out, and it's not fun. Unlike other systems (eg, FB), who's banner sizes give you a middle "safe zone" to design in, and basically leaves a large, simple, margin above and below your campaign artwork, it seems Strava pushed the desktop content to the very top of the dimensions, It also gives you two different logo positions between desktop and mobile that work as lovely road blocks. 

    I made this template based off the dimensions from Kenny Brown and personal testing. It leaves you with a weird Nebraska shaped area to play with between Desktop and Mobile.

    I hope this helps!
