You don't need Photoshop (or a graphic designer!) to make a great custom Facebook cover photo. In this video tech tutorial I will show you–in less than 15 min–how to:
- Create an image, or collage of images, that is the exact size you need for Facebook cover photo
- Add text and graphic overlays to make the most of this prime real estate (and Facebook's recent cover photo rule change!)
using PicMonkey, a completely free, online photo editing service.
(You’ll want to make this video large and possibly change the video quality so you can actually see what I’m doing.)
Need some inspiration? Here are 4 great examples of custom Facebook cover photos that use text strategically (including one from a member of this community!)–give 'em a peek to get your creative juices flowing!
Don't let Facebook cover photo envy keep you from creating your Facebook page. You can create a page you're proud of, without any fancy tools. (Tweet that!)
I’d love to hear from you
