As you’re probably aware, Facebook has again changed the layout of the Timeline for Personal Profiles, and has been rolling it out gradually for the past month or so. Yesterday the changes hit my own Personal Profile, which allows me to update my previous tutorial on integrating your Facebook Cover Photo and Profile Picture so that they appear to be part of the same image.
NOTE: This layout change HAS NOT rolled out to Facebook Pages, only Personal Profiles. To create this effect (and get the Photoshop template) for a Facebook Brand Page, read the Timeline Cover Photo / Profile Picture tutorial and template for Facebook Pages.
Here’s my new Timeline masthead with the new layout. Notice the “swoops” in the Cover Photo continue into the background of my Profile Picture.
OK, let’s get started!
