2 Simple Methods to Customize Your Facebook Cover Photos
admin

Tags:

Ah, Facebook, regardless of the current controversies surrounding it, it’s still one of the best ways to connect with your fans. Whenever someone comes to your Facebook page, the first things they see is your Cover Photo. It’s a crucial part of your profile to get right, and leave the best first impression you can. Many users will make a split-second decision to stay or not depending on what message your Facebook Cover is delivering.

That makes it a bit daunting to choose the right one, but, don’t worry, Fotor’s got you covered! Let’s look through a few different things you can do to help you connect with first-time visitors, then we can go through a tutorial and show you how Fotor can get you a great Cover Photo in just a few clicks.

What You Should Know

Before you begin anything, you should make sure that whatever media you’re uploading is compatible with the site. Nothing looks more unprofessional than skewed or warped photos.

Here’s a pretty easy guide that can let you know what is the best Cover Photo that fits both sizes well. Remember that you want a photo that can fill up both but still doesn’t lose any of its meaning when it’s chopped or resized to fit on your users’ computers or phones.

Remember to keep that size under 100 KB!

Also, remember

Now, to design your Cover Photo, you want to make sure that your customers can get an idea of who you are just from the cover photo alone. Remember that we process pictures a ton faster than text, so make sure your pictures are worth at least 1,000 words. Let’s look at some examples to get an idea of what to do.

Shazam-Home-Google-Chrome

Shazam does a really good job of making their Facebook Cover Photo resonate with what they do.

Freshly-Home-Google-Chrome

Freshly does a really good job of showing you what they’re all about with a simple photo. That looks like the most picturesque meal and dinner table, and I can’t wait to take a bite!

This can be a bit trickier, but make sure that your cover photo will resonate with what you are posting on your Facebook page. If you’re using it as a way to tell folks your behind-the-scenes processes, then consider featuring your office space (if it’s photogenic) or consider a picture of your team and let your audience create an emotional connection with them.

Don’t forget lighting! It can make all the difference between your product looking appealing and looking downtrodden and dreary.

Don’t forget context. Don’t add in extra, frivolous images into your picture. If you’re a photographer, make sure you have photography equipment or your specialty. Don’t add in extra stuff that isn’t really related to what you do.

Customize Your Cover with Stunning Templates

Let’s see what Fotor has to help you out.

First, let’s start by changing the colors. I’ve always liked how yellow and purple looked together. It’s always felt very regal to me.

Now, let’s add some stickers! Then send them to the back, change around the wording. These stickers are covering up the text, so let’s send them to the back.

Much better! I think we have a winner! Who’s up for a chicken dinner? (Please don’t punish me. It isn’t that bad of a pun.)

Resizing is good if you have a good ratio to your end goal, because if it isn’t a good ratio, it will warp, and your picture will look weird.

Ooooh, not that great.
