Optimum size for cover photo in Insignia theme

    Regarding the Insignia theme, is there a standard size for profile cover photos?

    Here's why I ask: I'm trying to put an advertiser's message in a cover photo, and before I start trying to figure out how it works with the responsive "break points," i.e. mobile and tablet, I thought I should start with the basics.

    In other words, I'm trying to place a cover photo on an advertiser's profile that will render equally well in all three sizes (handheld, tablet and desktop).

    Looks like it's based on the responsiveness and size of viewport. 

    .profile_cover_photo img { 21 width: 100%; 22 min-height: 100%; .. 24 position: relative; 25 }


    For the image I'm using to test, it is 1920 x 1200. The banner size varies on my macbook pro depending on how I size my browser. At full width, it's:

    I think you need to experiment like I did when making banners for this forum.
