Creating Your Google Plus Profile Icon

Google Plus profile photos must be at least 250 px x 250 px. When setting up our latest G+ page we experimented with various picture sizes, and developed a free template you might find useful for creating your G+ profile photo.
If you upload a 250 x 250px  to be your Google Plus Profile photo, you'll find it shows the edges in your G+ Profile pic like this.

In the example above, we used a 14 pt font in Lobster and Arial.
If you upload a 275 x 275 pix photo for your G+ profile picture, you'll get better results, as shown in the Google Plus Profile pic upload screenshot below.

The Google Plus Profile Pic upload cropping process removes the outer edge making a cleaner profile photo. Here's the screen shot of the 275 x 275 pix image used for a Google Plus profile photo - No edges showing!
