This article will provide you with instructions and a free Adobe Photoshop template for correctly creating a Google Shared Drive Theme image.


Creating a Google Shared Drive Theme Image

To create a Google Shared Drive Theme image you’ll want to create a design file (in your favorite design program) with a canvas size of 1280 pixels x 144 pixels (1280 x 144).

Next, only the very center square of the 1280 x 144px canvas will be displayed as a thumbnail starting at 550px with a center at 640px and a right side of 730px (for the horizontal guidelines). The vertical guideline is at 72px.

To Set the Google Shared Drive Theme Folder

  • Open up your Google Drive
  • Click on Shared Drives
  • Right-click on a Shared Drive, select “Change theme” then “Create custom theme
    • NOTE: You will need to have already uploaded your image to your Google Drive as a jpg or png.
  • Select the previously uploaded image from your Google Drive, and when it asks you to crop your image simply click  the blue “Select” button and you’re done.
