Match Your Facebook Cover Photo and Profile Photo Perfectly

Using Screenshots

font–Size: 13px;”>The secret to getting your cover photo and profile photos to blend together seamlessly is using screenshots. This will enable you to bring an image of your actual Facebook page into Photoshop and save your images at the correct Sizes.

To do this on a Mac, hit Shift + Command + 4. If you’re on a PC, use the Snipping Tool. Use the crosshairs to select the area you want to bring into Photoshop, that’s it!


Make sure to check out and submit your image to OUR BIGGEST CONTEST YET! We’re giving away over $1,000 in prizes as well as featuring three incredible guest judges, all professional photographers. All you have to do is submit your best photo, but there’s a catch: no smiling. Submissions due by 2/3/2013 Midnight CST.

Make sure to become part of the Phlearn Family on Facebook, conversate with us on Twitter, and #hashtag your Phlearn Inspirations on Instagram. We want to know what the Phlearn community social chatter is about, and who is sharing it. You all keep us motivated to do our best.

    instead of lowering opacity to line it up… you should change the blending mode to difference and move the top layer until solid black, that means the top and bottom are aligned… but great tutorial

    Just a quick help… You don’t need to make a new layer to align something to the middle… You can just load your selection, then change to the move tool, and the same options will be available.

    Longest and most drawnout procedure… you make it look so difficult and elongated. It can be done in less than 5 minutes with ease… around a third of the length of time it takes us to watch your tutorial video 🙂

    It has since been replaced by a standing committee empowered to conduct talks.Turaki was speaking a day after Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau posted a video offering to release the girls in exchange for prisoners held by the government.The video showed more than 110 girls sitting on the ground in a rural location. Though at least some of them are Christian, and Shekau described them as ‘infidels’, they were wearing full Islamic veils and singing and chanting Muslim prayers.It was not clear when it was filmed or whether Shekau, who sat in front of a green backdrop holding an AK 47 during part of the video, was in the same location as the girls.Those shown were among 276 abducted on April 14 from a secondary school in the northeastern village of Chibok, in a sparsely populated region near the borders with Cameroon, Niger and Chad. Some escaped, but about 200 are still missing.In hard hit Yobe state, where at least 50 people died, the government on Saturday ordered a dusk till dawn curfew following attacks by the sect known as Boko Haram. In Maiduguri, the capital of neighboring Borno state, bombs reduced at least three churches to rubble and raised fears of further attacks by a group that claimed Christmas Eve bombings last year that killed dozens.The fighting began Thursday in the two states, with gunfire and explosions heard into the night and the following day in an arid region that borders Cameroon, Chad and Niger. Damaturu, the capital of Yobe state, and the town of Potiskum bore the brunt of the violence.In Damaturu, residents fled their homes near the city’s central mosque ahead of a combined attack by soldiers and the federal police’s feared Mobile Police, known as “kill and go” for their propensity for violence.

    Did it in less than two minutes with Paste Into procedure… download your cover photo, printscreen your facebook profile, marquee the profile section, copy the cover and paste it into the marquee. Delete the other layers, crop the extra size and voila. Also, you need a bit of burning since they added that shadow on the base of your cover photo.
