{Tech Tips} How to Create a Custom Facebook Cover

Ready to create a custom Facebook cover photo for free?

I have received several questions about this. Though I am a Photoshop user (read: novice) and no longer use free sources, I LOVE this method and have done most everything with this service! In the video I use PicMonkey. It rocks!

Here is a brief tutorial so you can see how to make your very own Facebook cover (that fits and doesn’t get cut off and is totally custom!). You can also use this same website to create custom photos with borders and writing. For free!

Do you have any other Facebook questions? Ask! Hopefully we can answer!

Don’t want to do it yourself? Here’s an option!

  2. Thanks for the helpful info, I just figured out how to make a banner using Picassa and was pretty stoked about that…I didn’t realize you could make a custom FB cover. I wonder if I could use Picassa for it too?? Guess I’ll play around and see!! Thanks!!

  3. I use pm all the time and completely forgot I could do this! Once my baby’s in bed, I’m off to re-cover my FB. Tweeted and shared this link of FB!

  4. I LIVE on picmonkey and never even thought about using this feature. I sure can be a dingbat at times! Thanks for the heads up! And thanks for linking up at Thrive @ Home!

  6. I love Picmonkey! Thanks for the Tutorial. Have a great day!
