There have been some amazingly creative uses of Facebook’s new profile layout recently:
STEP 1: Download this Photoshop PSD file:
STEP 2: Drag a picture of yourself into the canvas and put that layer behind my layer (which is essentially a Facebook screenshot with holes in) which should look like the image above.
STEP 3: Move and resize your image until you’re happy with how it looks.
STEP 4: ‘Save for Web’. Select the ‘JPEG High’ preset. In the following screen where you choose a filename select ‘All User Slices’ in the ‘Slices’ drop-down. Click Save.
STEP 5: You’ll see the 6 images you have saved are named:
Upload these to Facebook in a new album
STEP 6: Make ‘Main-Profile-Pic’ your profile pic and then tag yourself in the gallery images to make them appear. IMPORTANT: you must tag yourself in the gallery images in the correct order, starting with the one on the very right, working your way to the one on the left.
STEP 7: Remove any unwanted news feed items from your profile generated whilst creating this. And you’re done!
For a quick, easy way to do this you can use new service profileheaders.com where you can login using your Facebook credentials and quickly create a snazzy looking profile.
Have fun, and share the fruits of your labour (your Facebook URL) in the comments 🙂
