    Timeline banner?

    I think I'm ready to create a banner for my Facebook timeline. What dimensions does it need to be? Any tips I should know?

    Oh, I have created a template, but I haven't added the pic to my FB yet. Would you like to get the tp, give it a try and let me know how it works? (In other words, do you want to be my guinea pig?? LOL)

    I was looking for a template, but didn't find too many, and didn't care for those. I'm surprised there aren't more. So 852x315. Time to play.

    The template I have created is just the one of the cover and profile pix, so that you can create a fun design mixing the two photos, like this one, for example:


    I'll send you a FB message with the file, Jamie, OK?

    Make it 851 not 852. Seems like if it's off a tiny bit Facebook freaks out. You may be fine with 852, but who knows!? I had some trouble when I first tried making mine so I stuck to the 851 x 315.

    Facebook also likes to make it blurry and indistinct, so sharpen it nicely and save as a png 24 when you go to save for web

    You're welcome, Jen! It was actually a spammer that bumped it, so I noticed it when I was cleaning up the thread
