Making a Facebook “Fan” page profile banner

Awhile back I created a new profile photo for my “Blue Cricket Design” fan page! I loved the idea of making the fan page feel more like a business page then a regular profile page and I think by creating a skyscraper photo it does just that! It’s also a fun way to display more then one photo and your logo!

If you remember I shared a “How to create photo collages in picnik” tutorial recently and if you follow those same instructions but chose the single photo, three row option, you will get a similar look like the one I created for my page.

I also rounded the edges and added a drop shadow frame. When you uploaded the new image to your facebook page you will want to be sure to adjust the thumbnail shadow to just highlight one of the images from your collage. It’s that easy! IF you create a new profile image let me know! I’d love to see it! Link your facebook page in the comments!
