Facebook Design

Having been seeing lots of posts etc. about the new Facebook layout for Pages and knowing that the deadline whereby all Pages would be moved to the new design was looming I thought I had better get mine sorted out. 

The first thing I realised was that I needed a good cover photo and that it had to fit within certain dimensions. I then quickly realised that the banner I use for my blog and market shops wouldn't work. It wasn't tall enough so Facebook kept stretching it to fit with the consequence that it became much too wide.

Well, all I can say is that thanks to that, I managed to learn a new technique on Photoshop. I discovered that I could create a blank file and then drag and drop other photos to it. So, I used my banner at the top, sizing to the correct width dimension. I then resized other photos to make up the rest of the height, fitting six jewellery photos in below my banner. The result then fitted exactly with the required dimensions of the Facebook cover photo.

So what do you think of it?

Love your cover! Wish I had the Photoshop knowledge to re-vamp mine!
