Configure a clear company logo image in google workspace

I'm attempting to add a logo to a google workspace account. The logo file has equivalent height and width dimensions but google workspace requires dimensions of 320 X 132 for the image. I tried cropping the image to achieve the correct proportions but the end result in google workspace is either an image with distorted proportions or the image is blurry.

Here's the image file in question:

That image is 320px by 319px.  Here is a version that is 319 x 152 which may be adequate.  320 X 132 is a very odd dimension.

Also, a great way to resize images or scale images is to either use what comes with Windows (unsure if you are on W10 or a Mac  OSX) or to leverage something like GIMP and Inkscape which are free and open source. I also like Canva image photo editor which is free and PicMonkey -not free, but they provide a trial. GIMP and Inkscape are great drawing apps but work well for image resizing too. You can input the dimensions into the editor.

Agreed it's weird, you can see it here:
Although it does say "up to 320 X 132 pixels..."

When I add the file that you provided, it looks fine on the upload page:

But then on the other pages it looks distorted:

@Jazz Marie Kaur - Thanks for the general information but then how do I specifically modify the image file in those tools so that it fixes the problem I'm seeing in Google workspace?

You can resize the image then re-upload. Dave was providing resized images for you, so was providing methods to resize and scale it further on your own or for future images. If you ever run into this again, you can apply 132 as the height, and it will auto-scale or automatically reduce the width. You can click on the ... three dots in the Photos app > Resize and choose custom dimensions. In GIMP and other apps, you can enter your site or platform's required upload width also.  The below result is from the Photos app image resizer, and Windows also has some power tools over bulk resizing https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/powertoys/image-resizer
