You are developing a plugin and haven't read the Codex? . . . Bad boy :P – brasofilo Jul 30 '12 at 8:31

Very simple, All you need to create a image of size exactly 772×250 pixel and name it as banner-772x250.jpg. You have to save this image in /assets/ folder in your plugins SVN directory.

  • Make sure the image is of either .png or .jpg type.
  • The .gif images are not allowed.
  • It may take upto 15 minitues to appear on your plugin page.
  • Another note - WordPress adds title to lower left corner of image.

Here is the example directory location and image name assets/banner-772x250.jpg) OR assets/banner-772x250.png

Also, from the Codex:

For development and testing, you can add a URL parameter to your plugin's URL of "?banner_url=A_LINK_TO_YOUR_IMAGE" to preview what the page will look like with your own image. This will only work with your own plugins, you can not use this parameter on anybody else's plugins.

And a retina version banner of size 1544x500 named banner-1544x500.png under the same assets folder – Ashfame Jul 30 '12 at 8:21
@Ashfame Do you have an official reference for this retina banner? So we can add the info to the Codex... Right now, there are only 4 occurrences searching wordpress.org – brasofilo Jul 30 '12 at 8:29
@Ashfame I couldn't find any official document about retina header-image support, link will be useful. – amit Jul 30 '12 at 8:30
