Corner bugs, Logos, or Watermarks: 150 x 150 px or 200 x200px

Full-screen overlays: 1280x720 px for 720p and 1920x1080 px for 1080p

You can cover the entire screen with an overlay graphic sized 1280 x 720px when streaming at 720p, it is recommend to use 1920 x 1080 px when streaming in 1080p. 



Left or Right Thirds/Panels: 420x720px

Some examples of panels are in the left or right thirds.


Besides the Landscape orientation, you can also use the template to create: Square (1:1), Portrait (4:5), and Full Portrait (9:16) graphics
