Spring cleaning: freshen up your Facebook Timeline Cover photo


Lets get straight to the point. Having a unique Facebook Cover Photo that represents you is important. That being said, why is it so hard to get the perfect Cover Photo? This blog will show you how to edit an awesome Cover Photo and upload it to your Facebook Timeline just in time for spring!

We find these to be the biggest 2 problems:

1. It is hard to find the perfect photo that is fit to be a background for a profile pic.

2. It is hard to fit a photo into such a strange size requirement (851*315).

Now lets go about solving this problem. To solve these problems we will use Fotor Photo Montage to make the perfect cover photo.

A) Using Fotor to create a Cover Photo

1) Find some awesome photos that would make a cool background, enter Photo Montage and then upload your photos into the Photo Box in the right-hand toolbar of the editor.Upload photos for your montage to create a spring Facebook Timeline Photo

2) Now scroll down in the left-hand toolbar and under background settings click the lock.  Resize the background to 815*315 {Facebook Cover Photo size}.
