While i was creating a new streamer brand for a client. I went ahead and scoured the web AGAIN for all the best image sizes that Twitch streamers need to have a professional-looking layouts and updates.
So I thought why not create and share this list for everyone 🙂 So you can just go for one place and check the recommended image sizes for Twitch Streamer usage?
Some of the image sizes are different than on some other guides since I recommend saving some time while doing posts for example: The image posts you do as a promotion for Streaming communities, Twitter and Instagram can be the same width and height.
This saves you quite a lot of time in the long run and you can focus on things that really matter. Like streaming! Hope you like this 🙂
This is your avatar and appears anywhere across the world wide web where users are represented by their avatar via their channel link. This can be edited only via your Settings page and should be a minimum of 200x200px to ensure quality.
Pro tip: I would recommend 800×800 so you can use the same image across multiple social media places.
Hovering over your profile picture also displays a thumbnail of your Cover Image and includes your channel blurb, which can also be edited via your Settings page.
Past Broadcasts: Your recent full recordings. These recordings exist on the Past Broadcasts page for 14 days for all regular broadcasters, and 60 days for Twitch Prime Subscribers and Partners. These can also have custom thumbnails!
Highlights: These are your highlights curated from the full-length recordings. Learn how you can add custom thumbnails to these and bolster your branding! Thumbnails must be 16:9 (minimum size 1280x720px).

Twitch emotes. Oh, the BEST thing in the Twitch world. I’m an emote junkie so these are pretty important. Even more important is to get the emotes done in an interactive and right way and sizes so they look clear and crisp.
Twitch Affiliates at the start get 3 emote slots for different tiers and as you gain more subs you get more slots for emotes. Here you can find the subscriber emoticon tiers.
Required sizes for Twitch emotes:
28 x 28 px
56 x 56 px
112 x 112 px

Twitch Badges aka Subscriber Badges are the things that make your most loyal subscribers stand out even more in the chat. Twitch Subscriber Badges are displayed before the name and you can have different kinds of badges for specific months.
So you really can have 1-month, 3-month and 6-month badges that show the badassery of the subscriber. You unlock more tiers later on when your stream evolves.
Unlike Emotes, badges do not require Twitch review and approval. You can upload them as soon as they are ready and they start to appear pretty soon.
30mins was the last time it took after I uploaded new ones and they started to appear in chat. So it might take a little bit of time for the Twitch CDN to catch up with the uploads.
Requires Sizes for Sub Badges: (For Each)
18 x 18px
36 x 36px
72 x 72px
