Ever since Facebook moved all its users to the timeline format, there has been a lot of focus on the biggest visual change - the cover photo!
When friends get to your Facebook profile, not only do they get to view the small square profile photo but they can also see a large rectangular shaped photo on the top of your page.
Though the cover photo spans over the entire width of the timeline, it does not change its size and remains exactly 720 pixels wide. The picture is usually 265 pixels deep but it may gain some extra depth because of the profile photo box in the lower left corner.
It is best that you upload a picture that has high resolution so that the quality doesn't suffer. You can crop any picture you like and upload it in this section within a few minutes.
So let's take a look at some of the ways in which you can create a Facebook cover for yourself.
