What is a cover image?

It is the thumbnail or the most striking image of your project. On UNI it has to be kept in a ration of 2:1 in landscape mode. 

In UNI's feed when there are hundreds of projects are being browsed by our users, your cover plays the most important part for viewers to immediately grab their attention. A cover is the first image of your project. UNI provides this to be in the ratio of 2:1 (e.g. 3000px X 1500px). Here are some tips about what makes a good cover image:

- A cover image should be the most striking/attention-grabbing image in your project.
- Do not include the title and description on the cover image as the project card already have this information.

- Keep the cover ratio as 2:1 to avoid unnecessary cropping of the image.
